Hello again to my beautiful lovelies. It’s the beginning of another new week, and I for one am excited. Halloween is approaching and a lot of wonderful things will be taking place. And I’m going to have to get my practice in for that wonderful time of the year, All Hallow’s Eve, after the trick or treating. Can’t wait!
But today I want to discuss another element of make up, again with our lips. Last week we discussed lip liner and how that could be used to make your lips the perfect pout, but lets talk lipstick.
Lipstick is a mood enhancer. Who’s mood? How? Why?
To start off, it can improve your mood. When wearing that absolutely fabulous shade of red, pink, nude, that makes you feel like conquering the world in stilettoes (ouch). But maybe it can help enhance a romantic mood between you and your partner. Movies have shown women getting ready and highlight scenes of them applying their makeup, focusing on their mouth.
I don’t know about you, but I do notice lips. Men’s lips wondering what it would be like to kiss them, women’s lips to see what shade of lipstick they have on. (I do not want to kiss women, but for those that do, I have no issue with that.) Women often wear makeup for other people, even though I mention that you do not need to wear for anyone but yourself.
Lips are one of the things that are highly sensual, and I love kissing. So I 100% agree that it’s a mood enhancer.
But I also feel that lipstick can also be a great way to protect your lips from the elements. I highly recommend the use of chapstick, and if you opt to wear lipstick it too can moisturize and protect the tender skin of your lips.
There is no right or wrong color, as long as it’s something you love and feel confident in. There are many formulas you can choose from, shine, matte, all day wear, smudge proof. And different formulas may be wanted for different looks. Do not feel you are stuck with only one shade or formula. Experiment with them.
As I’ve said before, wear make up for you, nobody else. You are beautiful just the way you are and you do not need to change for anyone.
Be strong, be beautiful, be you.
