Beauty Tricks for the Lipstick

*Affiliate links.

The Lipstick is one of the most popular makeup products, and it is easy to see why it is so popular. It is one piece of makeup that can be easily applied quickly when you don’t have the time for anything else. The lipstick also has the power to instantly brighten up your face, and if you apply the right lipstick properly, it can create of illusion of your face looking more made up than it is.

 

The Origin of Lipsticks

Lipsticks first appeared over 5,000 years ago. Rumour has it that Cleopatra’s red lipsticks were made from finely crushed carmine beetle and ants’ eggs mixture. During the second world war, the ends of used lipsticks were collected and melted together to form new lipsticks for the women. Each woman had an average of 2 new lipsticks for the 5 year duration of the war.

Lipsticks have the power to improve or ruin your overall look, so they are worth paying extra attention to. Here are some beauty tricks for the lipstick –

 

Pick the right lipstick shades

You need to ensure you go for the right shades of lipsticks. No point picking a nude lipstick if you are like me and nude doesn’t look good on you. You will end up looking washed out which is never a good look. Go for lipstick shades that complement your natural skin tone.

It can be tricky to get the right shades but my advice is to experiment with as many as possible until the find the brands, shades and textures that work for you.

I am currently loving these stunning lipsticks –

 

 

Get rid of dry skin on the lips

You can easily do this by scrubbing the lips gently with a toothbrush.

 

Apply a lip primer

Applying a primer before your lipsticks is the way to go. A good primer helps the lipstick stay on and stay put. I always apply my primer and leave it on for a few minutes before applying my lipstick. That way my primer sinks in properly before the lipstick goes on.

Here are some amazing lip primers –

 

 

Use a lip pencil

Lip pencils emphasise the lips so they are very much needed in the makeup bag. I have quite a few in various shades, and they really come in handy. My lips always look great when they are lined properly.

The tip is to always make sure your lip pencil and lipstick match. They have to be the same shade to look good. Once you line your lips and apply the lipstick, you shouldn’t be able to see lip liner. It just creates a sharp edge. The only time you shouldn’t use a lip pencil is when you are going for really glossy lips. You can get away with blurry edges when you lips are all glossed up.

Get a lip brush

Applying your lipstick with a lip brush is the best way to create a flawless look. You can’t compare the finish you get when you use a lip brush to when you don’t.

The best way to apply with a lip brush is to fill in the whole lip area, right up to the lip line, and then work into the corners. Also, open your mouth slightly when you apply your lipstick. This way to get to fill out every part of your lips.

Here is a great lip brush –

 

 

Blot your lips

Remember to blot your lips with tissue to fix our colour, add another layer of colour or gloss to complete the look. This is one of the most important beauty tricks for the lipstick, but many seem to forget it.

4 Eye Makeup Tips That Will Change Your Life

Eye Makeup are one of the most popular types of makeup ever. Many of us wear them even though we hardly ever wear makeup anywhere else. Eye Makeup has been around for donkey years and they are always on trend. The way we wear our eye makeup has changed over the years. So has the types of makeup we use. Gone are the days of coloured mascara, or plucking all the eyebrows off to draw a line. Makeup has come a long way and today we makeup lovers now know better. However, it is still so easy to make a faux pas when applying eye makeup which is why I have these 5 eye makeup tips that ill change your life.

 

4 eye makeup tips that will change your life image

 

 

Use Foundation on your Lids

If you are going to apply eyeshadows, put on some foundation on your lids before brushing some translucent powder on it. This would help create the right base for your eyeshadow and the rest of your eye makeup.

 

Make Use of Cotton Buds to Correct Mistakes

It is so easy to get your look wrong when applying eye makeup. Wiping it all off to start again when you make a mistake is never a good idea. Instead, dip a cotton bud into eye makeup remover and gently wipe the area that need wiping. It approach works better and saves you and your eyes the hassle of wiping the entire makeup off.

 

Tidy up your Eyebrows

The eyebrows are the pillars of the face and must be handled with care. One wrong pluck and you may have ruined your entire face for months. But if you get it right, you can get away with little or no eye makeup if you want.

Be careful when you pluck your eyebrows. Think tidy up rather than rebuilding. Pay attention to the hairs below the brow and across the bridge of the nose.

 

Threading is the Best

Threading is the best way to shape your eyebrows. The practice originated in Asia and has become very popular all over the world. I prefer threading to waxing. It is a lot more painful than waxing or plucking. So if you have low pain threshold, you may want to tidy your eyebrows using a different method.

Affordable Laser Hair Removal in London

*Collaborative post.

I had my Laser Hair Removal Treatment on my chin in 2016. If you are a regular reader of Fashion and Style Police, you would know all about my Laser Hair Removal Journey. I wrote about it extensively on this blog. I had 6 treatments and they were really effective. Waxing and threading were a thing of the past. I didn’t have to worry about going into the beauty salon every month to get my chin waxed or threaded. My chin was smooth and completely hair free for years, but I think I now need some more treatments as hairs have started to crop up again.

I am looking to book a session with an affordable laser hair removal clinic in London over the summer holidays, and I am quite excited about that. Summer is the season to show some skin, and I want every part of my skin looking summery.

 

5 Things you need to know before getting laser hair removal treatment image

 

 

Affordable Laser Hair Removal in London

When it comes to having laser hair removal treatments, I always go for clinics with a great reputation and affordable prices. Usually, an average person would need around 6 – 8 laser hair removal treatments, and these treatments cost money. So the cheaper the price per session, the better. I recently came across Premier Laser Clinic and I love their affordable treatment packages. What makes their packages so amazing?

 

Free No-Obligation Consultation

This clinic offers a free no-obligation consultation which is amazing. Many clinics charge a consultation fee which I think is extortionate. The last thing I want to pay for is a few minutes consultation for a treatment I am going to pay for. So I only go to clinics that offer free consultation.

 

Free Patch Test

Premier Laser Clinic offers a free patch test. A patch test is a quick 5 minutes treatment on the area to see how your skin reacts to the laser. Many clinics charge for this, but Premier Laser Clinic doesn’t.

 

 

 

Monthly Finance Options

The cost of laser hair removal treatments can be pricey depending on the areas you want treated and how many sessions you need. Which is why being able to pay monthly is a great for those who need it. This Laser Hair Removal Clinic in London has monthly finance options available.

 

Offers and Discounts

If you are thinking of having laser hair removal in London, and you are on a tight budget, you should check out Premier Laser and Skin Clinics. The industry’s leading laser hair removal specialists have current offers of up to 40% off for 6 sessions, 50% off for 8 sessions, 50% off any single laser hair removal treatment and 10% student discount off course of 6 or 8 sessions of laser hair removal.

As you can see, Premier Laser and Skin Clinic has amazing packages to help their customers save money. Unlike other laser hair removal clinics in London, their packages are very affordable. Their website is also very user friendly and informative. There is so much information on every treatment offered, and I love that about it.
