National Lipstick Day….

It’s National Lipstick Day which usually puts a little skip in my step but suffice it to say there’s not been a whole lot of Lipstick vibe since our mouth must be covered with masks during  Covid 19. But looking on the BRIGHT side of things-somedayyyyy we will be back in good graces and be able to once again show our pearly whites with masks a thing of the past and then we can perfect our pout with the prettiest of lipstick shades. Until then,mask on,stay safe and when push comes to shove might I suggest a little lip liner-since it’s a bit of color when the mask does come down and leaves less marks than lipstick on your face mask.  TO celebrate the day here are a few fun facts pertaining to this wonderful make-up addition: I don’t know about you but I for one LOVE a great shade of lipstick!

 

Fun and Fabulous Lipstick Tips..

Tip– When applying foundation continue over the lips to provide a base for lip liner and lipstick.

Tip– If your lipstick smells rancid, it is! Want it to last longer? Place it in the fridge.

Tip- Wrong lipstick shades can age you, steer clear of brown lipstick shades. Avoid matte lipstick as they tend to settle into your lip lines. Instead, try creamier lipsticks or glosses. Glosses are especially youthful and make your lips appear “pouty”.

Tip- Here’s a simple trick I once read models use to keep lipstick off their teeth. Apply lipstick, then place a finger in your mouth. Close lips around your finger and pull finger out. This should remove any excess lipstick, thereby keeping it from collecting on your teeth.

Fact- Every woman today absolutely automatically applies lipstick before going out of home. This habit is very old indeed: women began to apply lipstick in primeval times.

Fact- In old times, noble Japanese women were not allowed to appear in public without intensive makeup.

Fact- In ancient Egypt, women loved to tint their lips with attractive purple-red color.

Fact- During the Middle Ages, the popularity of lipstick declined. In that era, lipstick was considered to be a cosmetic which is suitable for prostitutes and lower class women.

Fact- More lipsticks are sold on a gloomy, rainy day.
