Did you know our mood plays a big part in our choices when it comes to fashion and beauty? You may have chosen a particular outfit because you felt sexy, or a hairstyle because you felt bold.
The same thing goes for when you choose your makeup style, in particular, your lip colour. Like mood rings that change colour when you are sad, happy or angry, you can also choose lipstick shades based on the same analogy.
Whether you prefer lipstick, glosses or lip stains, there is a shade to go with whatever you are feeling and match your mood. Below are a few examples of the perfect lip colour for some of the more common moods.
Lipstick shades featured are from the Nicole Webster Essentials collection, launching soon! Visit their website and sign up for a chance to win some goodies from their launch giveaway! www.shopnicolewebster.com
When and How to Use
Is it Really Worth it?
I say yes! It is a great addition to your skin care regimen. Not only does it help with the above benefits; it is also a great stress reliever and fun! The stone/Crystal, also has a cooling effect on the skin, which is very soothing.
Leave roller in fridge overnight to keep it cooler longer, increasing benefits of reducing puffiness and refreshing the skin.
You can use it daily or a couple of times a week; whatever is best for your skin type and the results you are looking for.
We would all love for our makeup to have super powers and last for eternity; but in reality, after 4-6 hours you may just need a light touch up. This is especially the case if you haven't prepped your skin correctly before makeup application and if you have oily skin. With proper preparation and setting of your makeup, you could go as long as 8-10 hours without needing a touch up! Check out my pro makeup tips on how to prep, set and forget.
A common concern with multiple makeup touch ups throughout the day is your makeup beginning to look caked on or darker/lighter than your complexion. This can happen because of incorrect technique and products being used during touch up.
Generally, you want to have touch up sheets or Kleenex available to remove excess oil first; then set your makeup with a finely milled, translucent powder. Watch the video below for proper technique, application and additional information and tips on how to correctly touch up your makeup. If you follow these steps, I guarantee you will not need to touch up your makeup more than once for the day!
