Did you know that Facebook has live streaming now? We go live several times a week to talk about beauty, fashion, and sometimes even to motivate each other and talk about the issues we face as women. I love connecting with readers on a more personal level! I get a lot of questions about my eyebrows, about my skincare, and SO many questions about lipstick.
With Spring and Summer creeping up on us, the easiest way to add a bit of color to your look is a cute bright mani, or a bold lip paired with bronzy skin and simple eyes. Life is too short to be afraid of a little pink- so here are some ways you can wear bold lip colors with confidence.
Find a color that looks great for your skin tone
Your skin has undertones. So does lipstick. Some red lipsticks have orange undertones, and some have blue undertones. If your skin leans cool (pink undertones) you would want a blue based red. If you lean warm (yellow) you would want and orange based red. If you’re a neutral undertone, you could go either way!
Apply it correctly
Applying a bold lip is an art form! You can see our video tutorial here!
Wear it around the house
Exfoliate and moisturize your lips
This goes a long way in making your lipstick look good! You can exfoliate by mixing lip gloss with a little sugar and giving your lips a little scrub. To moisturize, try some of these DIY Lip Balms!
Whiten your teeth
Some people worry that wearing a bold lip color will draw attention to staining on their teeth. We live in a day and age where over-the-counter whitening products that don’t cost an arm and a leg, and they work well! Make sure you do your research and speak to your dentist before choosing a product.
Take steps to be more confident in your smile.
I get a lot of comments from our readers and people in our livestreams who want to wear bold lipstick but are self-conscious about their smile. No application techniques or whitening product can help straighten out their teeth. Nobody wants to wear metal braces as an adult- that’s why I always ask if they have considered Invisalign.
I think a lot of people think of Invisalign as retainers- like the kind you wear after you have traditional braces. People are always surprised to learn that Invisalign can correct a vast majority of dental cases, is covered by most insurance plans, and is priced comparably to the metal brackets everyone thinks of when they hear the word “braces”.
Plus, you can take them out to eat and brush your teeth instead of having to use those little pipe cleaner things in between each and every bracket. To be honest, I wish I could sue my parents for having me pre-Invisalign.
Don’t think Invisalign is right for you? Think again! Due to many advances in its proprietary technology, Invisalign can effectively correct a broad range of more complex cases such as: overly crowded teeth, widely spaces teeth, open bite, crossbite, overbite and underbite.
