Makeup: Try Bold Lips this Summer!
Posted on July 30 2015
We’re right in the thick of summer! You know, when even the thought of wearing a full face of makeup seems like utter torture. What’s a girl to do when she still wants to look GLAM without all that extra CAKE?
Try pairing your Lotus Mink Lashes with a BOLD lip! Bold lips can kick your look into high gear with minimal effort.
First, select a shade. Since it is summer, you’ll want to stick with bright colors. Don’t let the intensity of the colors frighten you. Since the focal point is only your lips, your entire look won’t be overbearing! Your Lotus Mink Lashes always look natural and are suitable for any lip color.
Next, select your finish. When it comes to finishes, you have plenty of options. The matte lip finish is on trend this summer and is achieved with the classic matte lipstick or the hot, new liquid lipsticks. Or perhaps, you’d like a finish with shine? Try a lip gloss instead! When using a lip gloss to achieve a bold lip, ensure that the color is opaque enough to make a statement!
Last, apply your bold lip like a pro! Before applying your lip product of choice, your lips should be well moisturized and free of any dry skin and/or cracks. Choose a lip liner that is the same shade OR a shade darker than your lipstick/lip gloss. PRO TIP: Fill in your entire lip with the lip liner before using the lipstick/lip gloss for maximum staying power! Apply your lip and be sure to clean up the shape with a cotton swab.
Your completed face will have just the right amount of GLAM and SIMPLICITY with half the effort!
