8 Ways to Wear 1 Lipstick

Get the Most Out of Your Lipstick! 8 Ways to Wear 1 Lipstick

There are so many ways to change the look of one lipstick… and yet, while I know this, I still can’t seem to stop buying a new lipstick every now and then (my collection is currently at 40-something…). But for those of you who aren’t interested in housing an excess of lipsticks or feel like spending the money – here’s 8 different ways to wear 1 lipstick.

#1. The Traditional Way: Choose a lip liner that either matches the shade of your lips or the lipstick shade. Line your lips and apply the lipstick. This will leave you with the truest shade of your lipstick.

#2: Highlight the Center w/ a Lighter Lipstick + Gloss: Apply a lighter lipstick to the center of your upper & lower lip. This will brighten the center, giving your lips the illusion that they are fuller. Take that fullness up a notch by applying a clear gloss right over that lighter shade lipstick.

#3 Nude Lip Liner + Apply Lipstick w/ Finger: Apply that same nude lip liner & apply your lipstick using your finger. This will provide the lipstick with a little less pigment, making the overall shade a little more muted.

#4 Blend Out the Lip Line: Use a fluffy brush to blend out the lip line. It will make your lips look more natural and less structured by diffusing the lip line, creating a ‘lip stain’ effect.

#5 Use a Darker Shade Lip Liner: A darker lip liner brings more contrast, making your lips look larger and inevitably making the overall shade a bit moodier/darker.

#6 Contour w/ Lip Liner: Contouring your lips creates the illusion that you have poutier lips (how to video coming soon!). Just be sure to pat the lipstick on with your fingers so that you don’t cancel out the lines you’ve created.

#7 Apply a Pink Gloss Overtop : A light pink gloss instantly gives that plumper-lip look. I like to focus this on the center of my lips and along the Cupid’s bow. This attracts light and makes the lips so freaking juicy.

#8 Colored Gloss Changes the Color of Any Lipstick: Apply any shade lipgloss up top to change the overall look of any lipstick; shimmer, brown, peach, anything!

I really hope this was helpful! Please comment down below, letting me know if you plan to try any of these application techniques and tips. I’d love to hear from you!

2021 Makeup Trends

Feel Beautiful & Save Time! 2021 Makeup Trends

I’ve never been one to follow ‘beauty trends’. I always say that what might work for someone else, might not necessarily work for you. We all have different features, different face structures, which consequently are complimented by different makeup techniques. So when I saw this years trends pop up all over the spring runways, social media… let’s just say I was overly delighted.

This year is all about letting our inner & outer beauty shine. Natural faces with minimal contour, bold lips against a bare face, smokey undone bedroom eyes – everything screams ‘self-acceptance’, as we embrace our face with the use of minimal coverage products. It’s all about picking one focal point of your face, making it POP & then letting the rest of your face support it, with minimal makeup effort.

Trend #1: Bedroom Eyes – My favorite trend of all. This undone look is extremely sexy and intimate. Kind of like you just rolled out of bed, forgetting to take your makeup off the night before. The messier the better. The best way to achieve this look is to outline your entire eye with a black kohl eyeliner, then smoke it out with a pencil brush. Voila!

Trend #2: Simple Cateye – A wing against bare skin screams polished yet simple. It doesn’t need to be a huge wing. In fact, the simpler the better. This year is all about sitting down & getting it done! I love the Wet N Wild Mega Liners.

Trend #3: Bushy Boy Brow – I love the undone brow look. It looks like you haven’t plucked your brows in months. It’s sexy, intimate, effortless. If you have dark bushy brows then a simple clear brow gel is all you need. Need a little fill in? Use a tinted brow gel.

Trend #4: Bold Eyeshadow – The quickest way to make a statement. Swipe on a liquid shadow, throw on some mascara and get your booty out the door!

Trend #5: Natural Face Makeup – Let your skin shine! High coverage foundation with heavy contour is not it. We’re being kinder to ourselves this year and letting our skin breathe (as well as ourselves – one deep breathe at a time).

Trend #6: Bronzed Skin – What’s happier than the warm summer sun? Nothing. We haven’t seen the sun in months. We’ve been cooped up inside for months. So I think it’s fitting that bronzer is all the rage this year. Like many of the other trends, we are looking to the past in hopes to envision a brighter, sunnier, future.

Trend #7: The Parisian Face – Simple, elegant, quick. An undone red lip is day time appropriate and makes everyone feel badass.

Trend #8: Bold Lipstick Shades – The quickest way to make a statement it to throw on a bright pink lip and go. Invest in some good liquid lipsticks this year, like the Fenty Lip Stunna paints (I’m dying to get this color), they’re mask proof and the shades are stunning.

Trend #9: Lip Stains – Again, sexy undone look. They give the illusion that your lips are naturally tinted raspberry red. Super kissable and budge-proof.

What do you think about these trends? Please comment down below letting me know if you plan to try any. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
