Bright lipsticks are a bold, but fantastic fashion choice. How many of us wish we had the courage to pull them off? In truth, the journey from neutral lips to bright colors is not as hard as it seems. If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t like to stand apart, bright colors may not be the right choice. If you don’t mind drawing attention, what are you waiting for? There’s no denying that bright choices require more confidence. But, they can also build your confidence. The right colors could set your image on fire. Here are a few things to consider when you start your journey.
LOOK AFTER YOUR LIPS
To make bright lipsticks work, it’s essential you take care of your lips. Remember that bright colors will draw the eye. People are going to see your mouth in a way they might not have before. If your lips are peeling and dry, people are going to notice. Not to mention that it’ll ruin the appearance of your lipstick. Flaking skin is sure to break the color. So, start a lip care routine that works. Turn to tried and tested methods, like lip scrubs. These are fantastic for getting rid of dry skin. You can’t turn to lip balm when you’re wearing lipstick. Look, instead, for moisturising lipsticks that help with problems of dryness. More and more people are turning to cosmetic procedures to enhance the look of their lips. According to Nurse Bec from Injectable Effects, our lips lose volume as we age. This can affect our ability to smile naturally, and having lip filler treatment can help restore your confidence.
TACKLE YOUR TEETH
As people are going to be looking at your mouth more, they’re also going to notice your teeth. That’s why it’s worth putting in some effort to find out about dental plans and getting necessary work done. If it’s a problem you’ve always meant to deal with, what better time? If you’re unhappy with the way your teeth look, it’ll be harder for you to rock your new bright lipstick image. It’s also important to remember that bright colors do not look good on your teeth. Get into the habit of running your tongue along your front teeth to remove any stray lipstick! Take a handheld mirror with you at all times, too. You never know when disaster might strike!
BE CAREFUL WITH COLOR
Yes, this journey may be about being bold with your choices. But, it’s important to know that some colors don’t suit certain skin types. You should already have some idea about what colors don’t work on you. Avoid them. Stick, instead, to colors that complement you. It may be a hard bug to bear, but just because orange lipstick looks good one some people, doesn’t mean it will work on you. Test samples on your hand before buying to save yourself wasting money.
GET INTO THE HABIT OF REAPPLYING
Unlike the neutral colors you’re used to, bright lipsticks need a lot of reapplying. Again, it’s important you take a handheld mirror with you for this purpose. After eating or drinking, get into the habit of whipping out your lipstick and giving it a once over. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a bright outline and nothing in the middle!
