We are 41 days into summer and I am having an awesome time so far. I am playing lots of tennis and with my serves and ground strokes on point, I couldn’t be happier.  I have been going on daily nature walks, appreciating the picturesque landscapes, breathing fresh, crisp, clean air and thinking “Life is so good!”  So, how is your summer going?  Let me know what you have been up to.

Ok….Let’s take a look at some “Lips that Says….Ooh, Ahh, Nice!” featuring MAC’s Lipsticks in Taupe, Twig and ‘O’.  These are some of the nude lipsticks I have been wearing, however, I will be transitioning to some vibrant colours just for the fun of it.

For fantastic results when applying your lipstick, here are some great tips:

  1. Your lips will love you for priming them first!  Priming moisturizes your lips and gives your product colour, vibrancy and longevity.
  2. Always sharpen your lip liner to achieve well defined lines, and also for sanitary purposes.
  3. When lining your lips, use quick effortless strokes.
  4. Use a lip brush to apply your lipstick, it will give you a polished finish.

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!
