Rockin Red Lips!

30 Apr

I have always been a little nervous to do RED lips.  I have tried a couple times but never liked it, and never felt like it looked good.  This last year I either became brave enough to wear red lips or found the right color.  I think that it is a little bit of both.  The key is finding the right tone and the right shade.  If you are ivory/beige skin color you are usually better to do brighter not super dark.  Also if you have thinner lips you don’t want to do dark.  It will make your lips look even thinner.  Depending on your PH level in your skin the color of your lips might change the pigmentation of your lipstick.  If you tend to change your lipstick more pink or orange you are higher or lower on the PH level.  You need to balance it out before you put the red on so it doesn’t change.  Make sure you do a lip liner that is more orange if you go pink.  And if you go more orange you should go more pink.  Then you can put the red on and it won’t change the color so much if at all.  I found my absolute favorite.  Watch my clip if you want to know the best way to apply red lipstick!!  LOVE it.  I learned how to apply red lipstick from Robert Jones here is Robert doing a red lip at a photo shoot at Paisley Studios Click Here   So here is a question When is your favorite time to wear a red lip?  Do you like to wear a red dress or outfit, or do you like to wear something black, gray, or white?  Is it ok to wear red when you have a red lip?  Let me hear what you think.  I know what I think 🙂

Perfect Pouty Lips!

I love fuller looking lips and I love using this little trick to make my lips look fuller.  It is super simple you apply your regular lip liner and lipstick and over that you put a little bit of concealer on the center of your lips.  I have seen some people use eye shadow for this.  I think it doesn’t look as natural I don’t want it to just sparkle I want it to have the illusion of a fuller lip not just look there is sparkle on my lips 🙂  But you can choose whatever you want, and see what you like the most.  Let me know if you like it.

Ok I love these.  She looks so much younger!  You can’t see it in her before as much but she had a lot more age spots and uneven skin tone.  Find the right concealer and foundation and you will make them look so much younger and it will look natural.  Also remember coral lipsticks will make you look younger.  Also never highlight the brow bone with a deep set eye and don’t over darken your crease God already gave her one you don’t have to make it more apparent 🙂  And as we age you might want to stay away from the harsh black liners and do a gray or deep brown.  Always Always for deep set and hooded eyes CURL your lashes so important Click Here if you need help or need to know how.
