lips One Friday evening,my friends and I decided a hangout at our favourite spot.during our chitchat, I thought I had use the restroom. As I walked in,i met a lady just standing right in front of the mirror touching up her face.i walked in and out to still find her there, and before I could step out,she interrupted and as I turned to her,i couldn't help but giggle. The lipstick she had on was so bright pink that you could see it from miles away,not withstanding, it didn't suit her one bit. I tot I had help her out which I did. She was really impressed because one of the lipsticks I found in her purse which she had never tried was what I applied on her lips.she was really pleased with the result. This brings me to sharing with you that one of the most interesting conversations I have had with clients is aboutlipstick. Every woman who has ever sought out to purchase cosmetics knows the power and excitement that a new look can provide. The lipstick is an inexpensive thrill that can brighten any rainy day or lift any blurred mood. Lipsticks come in all shades, textures, pigments, finishes, and formulas. So how do you know what is best for you? With so many brands and colors to choose from, here are.5 simple tips for flawless lips...... Create a visual.See a lip color that you like in a or brochures and want to give it a try ? Rip the photo right out and keep it in your purse. That way when you are shopping for new lipstick you can be able to access the photo. Play with the finish.You really don't know what you prefer until you try it. Test sheer textures all the way to mattefinishes. See what feels best on your lips and find what would be most comparable to your daily makeup routine. Experiment with color.Always wanted that marylyn Monroe look? Look at a few different shades of red from blue undertones to orange undertones. Find what looks best with your tone and the level of color you are most comfortable with. The same goes for all shades when looking for the right tone, from nude,pinks to berries and mauves. Notethat you can play two by turning a bold colored lip into a more sheer tone by applying just a small amount of your lipstick to the lips with your fingers,then,Apply a lip balm,or a tiny amount of lip gloss to give a little shine. This will create moisture and you have two great ways to wear one lip color! Ask an expert.Makeup artists come with a wide range of knowledge when it comes to products and color. If you are shopping at a makeup store don't be afraid to seek for a second opinion. You can always learn from the pros and walk away with a few new and exciting recommendations. Exfoliate and condition.Once you've picked your favorite color, exfoliating and conditioning are the most important things to do when it comes to lips. Exfoliate the lips gently with a quality lip scrub, to get all the dead skin cells off. Then follow up with a conditioning and hydrating lip balm. This is best to do at night before bed. lipsticks DIYscrub:Take a small amount of olive oil ,then mix with white table sugar. stir to make a paste,Apply all over the lips in a scrubbing motion and rinse with warm water. finally,apply your lip balm to leave in moisture. The most important tip of all,no matter the type or colour of lipstick you wear,always and always wear it with a smile. remember,happy are the prettiest girls.....

    Lovely piece Kemmy. Thanks for enlightening our ladies. There are times we guys may want to puck when we see the things some of them paint (not apply) on their lips. But again there are others who make you go weak at the knees just at the mere sight of their beautiful lips. Thanks for the knowledge shared! *smiles*
