Lipstick: To Gloss or To Matte?

I have this conversation all the time and I have to say that I much prefer the look of a gloss lipstick. If I wear a matte lipstick, I always top it up with a bit of gloss. What can I say I love to shine!

Lipstick: To Gloss or To Matte?

I always start by conditioning my lips. Try putting on some lip balm (Lucas’ Papaw Ointment) and massaging a toothbrush into your lips. This exfoliates your pout and leaves your lips smooth and ready for your lipstick. There is nothing worse than lipstick on cracked lips! I then apply a lip primer to help with a smooth and lasting application (MAC Prep and Prime). I then line my lips with lip liner (same colour as lipstick – NEVER darker). A lip liner is a great tool to define your lips and outline their shape. It also helps your lipstick stay put. Then using a lip brush I apply my lipstick and then my gloss. Leave the gloss alone if you want a matte look.

Put a Ring on it!

As you are probably aware, I love bold jewellery that makes a statement. As soon as I put on a statement ring I feel just a little bit glamorous. Unlike most other jewellery pieces you can admire a ring you are wearing anywhere, anytime. You don’t need a mirror to know that it looks fabulous! I’m even admiring my ring at the moment while I type. FYI – It’s the silver flower ring below:
