Hey my darlings!!
Welcome to my first beauty post!
Today we talk lipstick! Lipstick is one way to really elevate your look effortlessly!
I mean you are already beautiful inside so a painted pout is just icing on the cake! Many people tell me, “Joy,I’m not a lipstick person,how do I start?”
This is always what I say,start simple. If you are the vaseline or lip balm wam-bam -thank- you- maam kind if beauty,start with a long last coloured blam or lipgloss.
Try toned down colours such as browns,peach and soft pinks. For me,I must have been born with lipstick in my hand and my preferences change anytime I walk into Sephora or MAC!
I experiment a lot! I have learnt that the classic red lip is my all time go to lipstick.
Let me tell you how to wear lipstick like the pro I know you are! Click on the tabs below for your beauty fix.
Hydrate your lips! This is another fancy way of saying,Drink water! Dry lips+lipstick=messy messy
2. Exfoliate your lips! No need to pick up the expensive stuff, simply mix a teaspoon of sugar in a teaspoon of either olive oil or honey ,mix it into a paste and rub it all over your lips. Rinse with water and apply vaseline or any lip balm of your choice and you are all set!
3. Moisturize your lips! Whether you plan on wearing lipgloss or lipstick not moisturizing your lips is unacceptable. You can use any petroleum jelly to achieve that.
Over the years, I truly enjoyed collecting MAC lipsticks but now there are so many brands to choose from!! Check out these pictures below to see what my collection looked like….I should do an updated post of my makeup collection. I promise you I will.
