Lipstick is like the necessary and inevitable makeup item a girl carries with her. Even if she is not wearing the mascara, or eyeliner, or the essential foundation and blush, she will apply lipstick on her lips, to grab the maximum eyeballs surrounding her.
Each Lipstick shall not be fit for every lady, that is why so several formulations are available on the market. Reading this will help you on how to choose the right lipstick for you.
Types of Lipstick
The two main types of lipstick are matte and creamy, with subcategories enveloping from there. The subcategories can be anything from a semi-matte formula to a lip plumping formula and everything in between. Also, there are full-color lipsticks as well as tinted lipstick formulas.
When deciding upon a formula, it boils down to preference. Skin types do not come into play here because the lips do not produce oil, therefore, regardless of your skin type, you can use any lipstick you please. The creamy formula is going to give the most shine and luster, whereas a matte formula will give off a non-shiny and more demure look. Again, it is merely a matter of preference as to which look you want, and often you can change it up depending on the occasion you are wearing the lipstick.
Finding Your Best Color for Various Occasions
The full-color formulas are more suitable for dressy occasions (the red, plum, or pink shades) when you head to work the more neutral shades are best, primarily if you work in an office or upper management. Sheer or tinted colors are more suitable for running errands or for casual outings with friends or family. If you are at home, only a clear lip moisturizer is necessary to keep your lips soft and supple.
Be Careful Handling Departments Store Testers
You may need to try various formulas to decide what appears best on your lips. However, it is necessary and necessary to use extreme caution while handling testers in a department store cosmetics counter. To avoid the spreading of the germs and bacteria, always ask the beauty advisor to spray this lipstick tester with alcohol to disinfect, and then wipe off the top area with a tissue. You should never apply a tester directly on the lips. Instead, use a Q-Tip or a disposable lip brush. Also, only swipe the lipstick tester once with each disposable brush, then apply the lipstick using the disposable brush.
The reason you must be careful is that the mouth is the fastest and easiest way to spread germs from person to person. However, this should not be a deterrent from trying testers to find your shade. By practicing careful handling of the tester and application, looking for a new lip color or lipstick can be one of the most enjoyable and uplifting experiences you will ever find.
Final Thoughts Lipsticks have been around for many years and will no doubt continue to be a favorite among women all over the world. Finding the perfect shades for different events takes some work, but finally, it is well worth the time and effort.
