Allied undeniable seduction, lipstick is the glamorous detail that makes women irresistible.
Red lipsticks ever to hit makeup shelves. It sublimates a face provided you know how to wear it and choose the shade that matches us. The advice of Julien Michelet, a Color specialist at Clinique.
WHICH SHADE OF RED TO CHOOSE?
- If you are red and/or have the white skin (milky): choose a cold red (a hot orange) and above all clear, not to make the complexion even paler.
-If you are brown with white skin: opt for a cold red also. But you can bet on more intensity. In a brunette, hair, eyelashes, and eyebrows are often more pronounced. And the intensity will not affect the complexion. A color specialist at explains that to you.
-If you have clear skin without being too white: everything is possible! Provided you do not zapper the blush. As soon as you mark the lips, the clear skin may tend to take a washed-out color. The blush, matching the lipstick, will raise the complexion for a good looking look.
If you do not like the blush, you can bring a light touch of bronzing powder.
-If you have golden, matt or black skin, you will always need a cold red. The darker the skin, the more intense the pigment. That should be and be covering to avoid the color of the red. It is important to stay in cold shades because a warm red will emerge orange on all the skins tanned.
-If you are blonde with blue eyes: you can let yourself be seduced by a warm red.
WHAT COLOR TO WEAR TO GIVE VOLUME TO THE LIPS?
A single rule to follow for thin lips that want to “bulging”: flee the dark reds that shrink. Next, you can choose a hue that you like and that will play on light and transparency.
The extra tip: for a slightly more volumizing effect. Add a touch of gloss to the center of the lips.
HOW TO WEAR DARK LIPSTICK WITHOUT YELLOWING THE TEETH?
The trick is to counterbalance the yellow of the teeth by the blue. These two colors being totally opposite. We must, therefore, forget the burgundy, which is the fashionable color at the moment. To prefer a cold red (thus bluish), intense and dark.
IS THERE A TRICK AGAINST THE TRACES OF LIPSTICK ON THE TEETH?
The solution is childish: “You have to suck his thumb!” Advises Julien Michelet. Open your mouth well, place your thumb inside and lay your lips gently around your thumb. When you remove the thumb smoothly without opening the mouth, the inside of the lips (moister and more prone to staining teeth) will wipe on your thumb leaving a “ring of red.” Remains to wash your hands and the trick is played!
WHAT COLOR OF LIPSTICK TO REDUCE DARK CIRCLES?
Worn on the lips, certain tints will compensate and camouflage the fatigue of the eyes.
- For the clear skins, a touch of orange in the red makes good and illuminates the whole face.
For dark skins, prefer a touch of violet “nude” in the red to bring more freshness. You can use a red already embellished with orange or purple. But it is quite conceivable to customize any red with a touch of orange or violet gloss over it.
Another technique, more original, which makes the buzz on the Net: use its lipstick as the concealer. To do this, apply a touch of cold red on dark circles or warm red on dark blue rings, blend and apply the concealer over them.
HOW TO MAKE HIS LIPSTICK LAST?
Step 1: Start by exfoliating and moisturizing your lips. You can even apply a thick balm while you make up your eyes before wiping the excess with a tissue. This step is used to make the lips more receptive to pigments.
Step 2: Trace the outline with a lip pencil and then fill the entire lips with. Melt well on the finger or lip brush. You will “stick” the lips for a long time.
Step 3: Apply the first coat of lipstick. Do it preferably with the brush, this is the best tool to impregnate the lips and make sure of the hold.
Step 4: Pinch a handkerchief between the lips.
Step 5: Reapply the lipstick.
