Junky Tip: Lasting Impressions

  I am totally against all things cliche, but I must agree that "your first impression is a lasting impression". Many times in life we are faced with only one opportunity, and when opportunity comes-a-knockin, BE READY!!! Being a fashion/lifestyle blogger you realize how important makeup and looking your best at all times is important to your brand. Over the past year or so I have been becoming more and more into lipstick. I LOVE LIPSTICK, BUT I HATE HAVING TO REAPPLY AND REAPPLY!! The perfect lip color can bring together the perfect look, but of any other makeup option it usually requires the most touch ups. If you think about it; we eat, drink and talk throughout the day and it constantly fades with every sip, bite, and word. Thanks to this lip trick; you are sure to leave a lasting impression.

                                    Junky Tip:

Make sure lips are moistened with a lip balm since skin in this area is prone to dryness (my fave is Rosebud Salve Lip Balm. 8oz Tin). Apply a lip liner that is the same color or in the same color family as the lip color you chose. Apply a small amount of foundation to your lips to create an even base and mute out your natural lip pigmentation. In addition, it will help the lip color stand out. Use a lip brush to apply the lip color. The brush will give your lips not only a fuller effect, but it will cover all parts of the lip that the actual lipstick applicator may not reach. Covering all the NOOKS and CRANNIES of the lip is a must! For a finishing touch, lightly apply a lip gloss (my fave mac clear lip glass) across the lips to seal it all in! Then its complete.
