Happy National Lipstick Day
I know its a bit late, but “Better late than never”.
I am a avid makeup junkie and to be honest I wanted to come up with an blog that I very much follow in my everyday life or I better say i used to follow in my pre covid life.
At time like these feeling good and looking good for your self is very very important.
And for someone like me who finds happiness in getting ready for no reason, well why not make ourselves happy by doing what brings joy or as Mary Kondo would say “Sparks Joy”.
Lipsticks were invented around 5000 years ago. And each civilization women had used different methods to color their lips.
With National Lipstick Day falling this month I felt writing about this topic at this time is nothing but perfect.
So here I have decoded my go-to 4 Looks
Cat Eye Bold Lip
One of my favorite and easy to achieve Combination.
I feel Red lips always compliment thick cat eyeliner.
In this picture I have only achieved the look with few products only . Winged liner and red lips instantly brightest the face.
And blue tone red lipsticks are my favorite but from the time I tried Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip paint I am literally obsessed with it.
I prefer minimum face makeup when I put on a red lipstick. So here I have applied a bit of nyx concealer and bit of face powder to set it in. And Benefit cosmetics Galifornia Blush which is a beautiful peach toned blush and my favorite Dandelions Highlighter.
Eyeliner is from loreal. And for Lips its the Fenty Stunna Lip paint which is gorg by itself.
Colored Eyes Nude Lips
I love color liners a lot. They are so much fun to work around. I usually put color liners on my bottom water line and thick coat of mascara and a ashy nude lipstick.
Here I have tried Kat Von D lipliner in turquoise and with thick coat of my favorite mascara. If you are reading this you must try Maybelline Falsies Lashout mascara and you will thank me . And keeping all the base products same I have only changed the Lipstick. Here I am wearing a ashy liquid lipstick from brand Australis and making the focus on my eyes.
TIP:- When you do a colored eye makeup try to keep the lips neutral or nude.
The No Makeup Eyes and Lips
This one is a subtle and very natural look. On eyes I find nude liner on water line opens up eyes and make them appear a bit bigger. And to further enhance it try out a brown liner and draw a underline on the outer end of the eye making it ever so natural and its gives and illusion of elongated eyes. Load on some heavy duty mascara.
For the lips i went very peach like tint from Dior. Its such a beautiful product to use on everyday makeup.
And because the eyes and lips are muted a bit, I am using a mauve blush to bring the warmth to the face which makes it look fresh and healthy.
Bold Eyes with Gloss
I feel that a good Gloss makes your look very glam. I have used Maybelline khol to intensify the eyes. And my trusted mascara from Maybelline . For lips I first used Maybelline matte ink in shade “Amazonian” and toped it with Korres Lip gloss. And to make it more glam pull your hair back in sleek bun or a low pony tail.
A very effortless glam look.
Let me know what you think about my everyday look options. What is your go to look, let me know I would love to try.
Keep doing what you love to do, and believe in it.
