Paint them Nude, Bold and Beautiful

Greetings Beautiful People! I was thrilled to celebrate “International Women’s Day” over the weekend, marked by a powerful theme ‘Inspiring Change.”  Let us continue to be an agent of change through our actions and by the words we release from our lips.

In last week’s post I discussed “Happy Lips”.  This week, I want to celebrate lips, whether they are thick, thin, wide round, straight or crooked.  They are your lips and it identifies your unique characteristic, so celebrate your lips by painting them Nude, Bold and Beautiful!

To celebrate my lips this week, I stopped by MAC Cosmetics and purchased two amazing lipsticks in colours Naked Bud and Heroine.  I did a brown smokey everyday look with nude lips using the Naked Bud lipstick and popping colours with the Heroine lipstick.

Here are a few tips to consider when painting your lips Nude, Bold and Beautiful.

  1. Start with a lip primer
  2. Always sharpen your lip liner before using to achieve well defined lines and also for sanitary purposes
  3. Use effortless quick strokes when applying the lip pencil
  4. Use a lip brush to paint your lips beautiful

Hello Again Beautiful People!  I am absolutely happy…..what about you? I’ve been snapping my fingers, tapping my feet, clapping my hands, flashing a gleaming smile with my “Happy Lips” to Pharrell Williams’ #1 hit “Happy.” This is definitely a happy, upbeat song.

When I am smiling from ear to ear and feeling completely happy, I have the confidence in knowing my  “Happy Lips” are primed with MAC Cosmetics Prep & Prime. This is a colour free base I wear under my lips to enhance the colour of my lipstick and to give my lips a flawless finish.  Additionally, I use the Prep & Prime to keep my lipstick intact and to prevent it from wearing off.  This is a must have product for my makeup kit because it  keeps my lips moisturized and hydrated, especially when I travel back home to The Bahamas where it is sunny and humid.

Do you want Happy Lips? The secret is to Prep & Prime! So, keep smiling, stay beautiful and be happy.  You can have “Happy Lips,” too!
