Hi my name is Haley and I’m a lipstick addict!
Yes you heard me right! I really am addicted to lipstick 💄 it is a problem in my husbands opinion. I don’t think it is, heck the more the merrier in my opinion. Just can’t ever have enough. I feel as if I don’t have enough and not all of them are shown below 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
So what’s the point to this post other than my not so massive lipstick collection? Well lipstick can seriously make a change in a persons face! My main go to makeup product is lipstick so a lot of the time it’s the only makeup I wear so over time I have come to find what works for me and what doesn’t when it comes to wearing lipstick….
What I have learned when wearing lipstick
1️⃣ Exfoliate exfoliate exfoliate!!! You have dead skin on your lips from all the product and wax build up… so I exfoliate every morning before I apply anything. If I don’t feel like wearing lipstick that day I will still exfoliate and then add a really good hydrating balm or gloss (Lipsense Glossy Gloss is my like #1 in hydrating gloss and just plain every day gloss)
2️⃣ Drink lots of water!! Water is so good for you in general. If you are a exfoliating and using the bombast gloss ever it’s still not good enough until you drink lots of water… hydration starts from within peeps!!!
3️⃣ At night time before bed I make sure to apply either a really good lip moisturizer (like Glossy Gloss) or I will apply coconut oil or Vaseline on them. Then in the morning I wipe off lips and exfoliate.
4️⃣ Make sure you have a good makeup remover… I will either use makeup wipes or a lip makeup remover… sometimes lipstick can be tough to remover (like liquid lipstick and especially Lipsense since that stuff stays on forever).
5️⃣ I always start off with the bottom, corner to corner, then I define the Cupid’s bow and go from Cupid’s bow to corner one side at a time. I don’t know why that seems to be the easiest way for me.
Lip health is the same process as skin health pretty much!! It all starts with water though!!!
