I've been looking for that perfect pink lipstick, not too Barbie, not too red, not too brown, not too coral... Like a dark berry lip. Anyhow, I'm still on the quest.
I hate to deviate from MAC products, I'm hooked. I like their recycling program and price point for the quality. Sadly, they don't carry the colour I'm looking for, but I'm using "girl about town" for now, until I find the right tone.
The thing I love about lipstick is that paired with a simple blush and mascara, it can really look dressy and only takes a few minutes.
You're probably thinking... "Ya, I'd love to wear lipstick, but I don't have time to reapply and fuss about it getting on my teeth or bleed away".
Well, lucky for you I'm sharing my secrets with you today! I use MAC lip primer wich is a must! It holds the lip colour in place and avoids smudging. I can't wear colour without it!
Second, I discovered a clear lip liner (no bleeding liner, Shoppers Drugmart, $17) that helps with the bleeding and you basically never have to buy colour liner again! It's always the perfect match :)
1- start with the lip primer
2- trace lips with clear liner
3- put on lip colour of choice
4- go back with the clear liner and trace lips out until your edges are perfect!
5- Optional is to blot with Kleenex or dust with a light powder to lock it in. But this technique removes the shine.
Have fun galmming it up mommas!
