Whew! It’s CeeCee … just trying to find a few minutes to sit down and write this latest blog posting for spring. Have you ever noticed that by the time the kids’ baseball season gets underway and Spring Break is (finally) finished … there’s just not a lot of money left over to indulge yourself in the latest styles for spring?
Over the past few years, I’ve found a way to stay current and ‘style motivated’ by spoiling myself with … one new thing for spring! You know … that little something that’s affordable, and makes you feel really special AND look great.
Lipstick Alert! It’s always an affordable choice and there’s nothing that says ‘great style’ quite like a great smile featuring the latest colour of the season. Don’t you just love it when you’re waiting (somewhat patiently) in that long line at the check-out counter and the woman standing next to you says, “where’d you get that fabulous lipstick?”
Don’t be afraid to be playful with your lipstick shades. On the Runway, celebrities (like Lupita Nyong’o) and fashion designers have really been bold this season with their colour choices. There definitely seems to be one dominator … ORANGE! One of the season’s most popular blasts of colour can easily be worn to work … or for a night out on the town. Here are some suggestions on how to ‘rock it’ in the Realway.
How To Apply It
When it comes to applying any lipstick shade, there are some techniques that can be useful. For long lasting lipstick, use a lip brush to apply. Applying a lip liner can also make your luscious looking lips last longer. If you are reluctant to wear one of these bold colours, feel free to first dab the lipstick on your fingertip and then gently apply it throughout your lips. This gives you a hint of colour without the full colour ‘jolt’. Lastly, if you are looking for the ‘perfect’ pout, apply a concealer that matches your skin tone around the lips. Be sure to use a concealer brush while tracing around the lips, as this will help you define your lips and clean up any lipstick that may have gone over your lip line. Perfect!
