Choosing a Perfect Lip Color

When choosing a lip color that will make a statement, knowing which colors and type of lipstick finish that will work best with your needs is the first order of business. Depending on your personal preferences and how long it has to stay on during the course of the day makes a huge difference in your selections. Here are a few tips on choosing the perfect lip color and finish:

Identify your undertones

The undertones of your skin plays a huge role in the lip color you choose. Whether you’re seeking a subtle or dramatic look, the undertones will help you in determining the colors that will work well with your skin tone. How can you determine the undertone of your skin? Look at the inside of your wrist to determine whether you have cool or warm undertones. This will steer you in the right direction.

Know your finishes

It is best to determine the type of finish you like while choosing a color. Depending on the finish, whether it is matte, something with bold color, or a sheer glossy look, this will assist in the choice of a lasting lip color. Matte lip colors last longer, creamy lip colors are rich in texture and add more shine, and satin lips are delicate and glossy.

Factor in the eyes

Your eyes are an integral part of the overall effect when choosing a lip color. Your lipstick should blend effortlessly into the presentation, and the color should help your eyes pop. Your lip hue should balance the coloring in your skin and eyes.

Think hair

Choosing a lip color that will also blend in with the color of your hair is smart. Your hair is also a major factor when choosing a lasting lip finish. If the color doesn’t look good next to your hair, chances are it’s not the right color for you.

Your overall goal when choosing the perfect lip color should be to choose a color that will flatter your eyes, hair and skin tone for a successful presentation. Factor in the other elements of your makeup, such as your blush and eye shadow colors. With a little research, you’ll be able to pinpoint hues that work every time!

Cool Ways to Use Concealer

The beauty industry makes their profit from a variety of products, but there are a few items that have multiple uses. Concealer is a beauty staple that can be used in a variety of ways. Most women use concealer to cover blemishes, dark circles or skin tone that may appear uneven. Concealer is used underneath or on top of the application of Beauty Cocktails foundation with the Luminess airbrush system. Although this is the general use, there are a few other beauty secrets and ways to use foundation that most people don’t know. Here are a few beauty tips that will enhance your beauty regimen while keeping your budget intact:

Longer Lasting Lipstick

You can use concealer on the lips to make your lipstick last longer. Evenly apply a light coat prior to putting on your lipstick and let it dry. This will help your lipstick color pop and reduce feathering while adding a level of dimension to your lips. You will achieve the appearance of fuller lips without the need for eye liner.

Deeper, Fuller Lashes

You can use concealer as a lash thickener or primer prior to applying your coats of Infinity Long Lash Mascara. This will condition your eyelashes and help deepen the color. Apply the concealer with a clean lash brush, extending the concealer to the tips. This adds volume and depth with immediate results.

Natural Eye Shadow

Concealer can be used as a natural eye shadow to give your eyes a quick pop without the use of color. This will provide a smooth, neutral finish that will accentuate the eyes. Finish up with mascara and liner for an everyday look that works.

Beautiful Skin Highlighter

Concealer can be used to highlight your blush for a rosy finish. There are two ways to do this:

  • You can dot the area with a few drops of concealer, blending it into the skin. Add a powder blush to the area with a blush brush for a great finish.
  • Blend cream blush and concealer together to add a warm finish to your face. This will provide a toned, natural highlight while providing the illusion of an inner glow.

Knowing the different ways to use beauty products can work wonders when you’re on the go or you only have certain products in your makeup bag. Concealer is a product that can help enhance those on-the-go trips or emergency situations when you need a refresher and don’t have access to your beauty tools. Being creative with certain products like concealer can help you in a pinch while still giving you the quality looks of a professional makeover.

These are just a few cool ways that concealer can enhance your beauty secrets and feel like a pro. When putting together your makeup bag, you won’t have to have a bunch of products to get the same result – you can just use one!
