Beautiful young woman with make up lipstickYour Lips Say It All  by Ruth Henderson

Have you ever felt you looked drab and frumpy on an otherwise bright and sunny warm spring day? It just might be that a new lipstick will lift your spirits and make you feel vibrant and happy again. Other than your eyes, your mouth and lips are the most noticeable feature one sees when looking at you. With that being said, it is very important to take good care of your lips and to also choose the right color of lipstick to compliment your hair, eyes, and facial features.

The first thing you need to do is to exfoliate your lips to remove all the dead skin cells and wax buildup from previous lipsticks. BeautiControl’s Lip Apeel and Balm duo is just the right thing to apply to your lip and around the mouth area. Let it dry for a few moments, then rub off gently with your finger and all the dead skin and wax are gone. Next apply the lip balm included in the duo to soften and treat your lips.

Now that you have conditioned your lips, let’s talk about choosing the correct lip colors to suit your personality and style. For those beautiful red-headed ladies, the “warm” colors will be sure to suit you. The ambers, champagne, auburn, flame, and chestnut colors will be your top choice. For the rest of us with blond, gray, brown or black hair, the cherry, fuchsia, raisin, mauve garnet, bourbon and more vibrant colors are more suitable for us “cool” people.

There are many bright shades, subtle shades, natural colors, and even anti-aging lipsticks from which to choose for your perfect lips. You can even create your own favorite shade by mixing two or more shades together or applying in subsequent applications.

When you are ready to apply your favorite color to your “conditioned” lips, cover your entire lips with a similar color of lip liner; do not just outline them, but fill in the entire lip area with the lip liner. Lip liners also prevent lipsticks from bleeding and feathering into small wrinkles and creases around the mouth area. The liner will also accentuate your lips and act as a conditioner to help your lipstick stay on much longer. Then select the color lipstick that best suits your color profile, personality and facial features.

A good lipstick should saturate your lips with hydrating herbs, vitamins E & C, and antioxidants to lock in moisture and soften your lips. There are also different finishing looks to the lipstick you choose, inasmuch as whether you want your final look to have a glossy, frosted, satin, sheen or crème finish.

Apply your chosen lipstick color generously to the entire lip area, then blot with a tissue or stick your index finger slightly into your mouth and “kiss” it to “set” the color for longer lasting results and to also prevent it from smearing. You may add a touch of gloss to the center of the bottom lip and press your lips together to give a little hint of shine if desired. Happy Lips make Beautiful Lips!
