Choosing a lipstick that is perfect for your lips is critical, it makes a lot of difference as to the way you look and portray yourself to the people around you. The right lipstick can give you the perfect look for the given occasion. You must never try a lipstick that looks good otherwise but not on you. Many people make the wrong choice which results in the loss of good money.
Now trends have changed lipstick are not only about looks of your lips and face, but for better and fresh lips. If you are suffering from dry lips, keep in mind to use lipstick with moisturizer. It has all the necessary ingredients which make your lips soft and supple. They contain ingredients like aloe, glycerin and Vitamin E.
Lipsticks which are high on oils are also very good as they provide the necessary food for your lips to make them as supple as they ought to be.
Other commonly used lipsticks are those with a shine. These are considered to be more dehydrating even though they provide a wet look.
Cream lipsticks are also on a roll as they come in different colours and varieties. Always look for products which contain some valuable ingredient to take care of your lips.
The other is transfer-resistant lipstick which is very popular with women on the go who need to look presentable but have little time for makeup. This lipstick helps maintain that fresh look even at the end of the day and one needn’t reapply. It can remain in this state for 4 to 6 hours, sometimes for even longer.
Make it a point to buy lipsticks that are good for your lips and not just for your looks.
PROTECT YOUR LIPS
Lips have only three to five layers of skin cells compared to 15 over rest of the body. So you need to take care of your lips and protect them, much more than you do for the rest of your body. Essentially, protect your lips against the environment just like you would protect your skin, with moisturizers, sunscreen et al. It might be a good idea, however, to avoid regular usage of lip-balms that are petroleum-based, as these are addictive. So look for balms that are non-petroleum based.
PRONOUNCE YOUR POUT WITH EXERCISE
Here is an exercise that will give your mouth a younger, firmer and fuller look altogether! The Lips get enlarged and the lines above the upper lip smoothen.
You can do it while sitting up or lying down.
The Exercise • Hold your lips together, without clenching your teeth. • Put the tip of your index finger in between your upper and lower lips. • Press lips together and visualize your finger as a stick that is being crushed. • Gradually, pull out your finger from between the lips, while seeing the stick. • Draw the energy point out and lengthen your imaginary stick until you feel the burn. • Pulse your finger up and down quickly for a count of 30.
Note Do the pout exercise twice daily to plump up thin lips.
