What kind of makeup catches the eye in a moment? Eyeliner’s so common that it just looks like an everyday thing now. So now this is going to be about lipstick.

Lipstick, it may be a common item, but once it’s on the lips it becomes an extraordinary material that’s able to brighten up the face.

It’s the morning. Again. Time doesn’t wait for anybody.

Having lips chapped and feeling the dead skin cracking up is never a good feeling. Wanting to get lipstick on but having shaky hands is even worse.

These problems are easily fixed and here are my tips today.

Lipstick

Eating something a bit greasy and in exchange, the lipstick transfers all over the place to notify that it was the wrong choice.

Liquid matte lipstick? Regular lipstick? Liquid creams?

Stating a personal opinion, while being at school or work the best choice to apply on the lips is probably a liquid matte lipstick due to its durability and non-transferability. Liquid matte lipsticks have been a big trend these days, however, this doesn’t mean that everybody needs to jump on the hype. There are various lipsticks that have different finishes from matte to satin. Choose what personally fits the best.

Ofra Cosmetics-Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick-$19.90

MAC Cosmetics-Matte Lipstick-$17.00

Quick Exfoliation

Apply lip balm and after about 15 minutes rub the lips with your fingers. Who’s got time for 15 minutes? I’m not saying to stand there while waiting and do nothing. Do preparations for going outside in the meantime. After rubbing, the dead skin will be rubbed off with ease, getting some tissues to wipe it off makes it sanitary.

Hmm. Lipstick? I see shaking hands.

When making things tidy, it would be a no to lipstick. Instead ,why not put on lip-gloss instead? Dabbing it on makes it sparkle enough. However, if it’s a lipstick craving day put some lip liner to define the outline of the lip shape, it will make applying the lipstick much easier.

Emergency lipstick smudge problems?

Don’t wipe everything off because that’s going to take more time than fixing it. No Q-Tips around? It’s okay! Get some of the brown paper in the restroom or any thick piece of hand towel, (if there’s only toilet paper get 4 pieces) then fold until there’s a layer of thickness on the fingertips. After that step is done, apply a slight bit of water, then squeeze the piece until it has a moist feeling rather than a soggy one. Then is the time to wipe off the excess lipstick that made the look a mess and make it clean.

“If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack.” said Coco Chanel
