Lifestyle tips - choosing lip colors

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Be careful while choosing the lip color as it contains waxes, oils, pigments and emollients that one must pay attention to for a quality product.
Wax gives shape and ease of application to the lipstick and often natural beeswax, carnauba wax made from the leaves of Brazilian wax palm trees and candelilla wax processed from the plant of the same name found in Mexico is used for the purpose. Castor oil is the most common ingredient as it forms a shiny film after drying that does not smudge easily. Other oils and fats such as cocoa butter, lanolin, mineral oil, olive oil and petrolatum are used in the manufacture of lipsticks.

To keep your lips soft, moist and protected from the weather conditions you should choose one which offers aloe Vera, amino acids, collagen, moisturizers, vitamin E and sunscreen.

A clear lip balm is the best thing for everyday use.
Glitter lipsticks and lip glosses are for special events and funky night parties that highlight your lips immensely.
A very light film of pink or red lipstick gives you the look of that carefree beauty.
Use a blood red lip liner to make precise lip lines and apply two coats of lipstick of same color that will make you look hot and trendy.
Mature women should not use matte lipsticks.

SHADES WHICH ARE PERFECT FOR YOU

For women with large lips muted colors such as purples, browns and bronzes are the best choices.
Women with thinner lips should use light colors.Wine, berry, cappuccino and mauve colors suit light blondes best.
While coral, apricot and shades of peach are suitable for blondes that have a golden hue.
Redheads may use warm colors such as shades of terracotta, cinnamon and peachy brown.
Warm peach, brown and terracotta shades are for blondes that sport olive skin tones.
While shades such as terracotta, cinnamon and reds with hints of brown are the most suited colors for brunettes.

TIP FOR APPLYING LIPSTICK

Make your lipstick smudge resistant and matte by blotting the excess color on lips using one sheet of two-ply tissue, reapplying the lipstick and blotting it again to absorb the excess oils. This will give you a long lasting effect.
In case, the lip color or brush slips from your hands accidentally and stains your clothes, apply the glycerine on the area and rub it gently, before washing it.
