In the winter time is when I wear the most lipstick. I like how dark reds and maroon lips look paired with a stylish winter ensemble. Plus, I go to a lot more parties and gatherings because of the holidays so I dress up more in the winter, which means I wear lipstick more often. If you want to get the prettiest pucker, follow these lipstick rules!

  1. Get off to a good start: Before you apply lipstick, exfoliate the dead skin off of your lips with a damp washcloth. This gets your lips prepped and ready for appication!download (2)
  2. Know your stuff: You should also know what lipstick formula works best for you! Matte formulas last long, but they also dry your lips out a bit. Creamy formulas hydrate your lips, but they arent long-lasting. Experiment with different ones and find which one works best for you!
  3. Go bold: If you want your lip color to be bold, line your lips with a lip pencil before applying lipstick.
  4. Be wise about blotting: Blot your lips with a tissue in between applications by gently pressing a tissue to your lips. Just don’t put a tissue in between your lips and close down on it because this may cause the color to rub off.
  5. Top it off: Top your lipstick off with some gloss. The shine helps your lips look plumper.

Follow these rules to get the perfect pout!

XOXO, Chels

Makeup in the 1900’s was so fun and lively; so when I watched the movie The Great Gatsby, I became inspired by each and every look! I looked more into how they did the makeup and wanted to share one of my favorite tips I learned! Keep on reading to find out how you can get The Great Gatsby inspired lip look! Chelsea Crockett- The Great Gatsby Lip

Start by choosing your lip color. The colors used for this look are dark and deep, so go with a maroon or wine shade. Begin by applying a primer so the dark colors don’t sink into your lip lines. Next, using a lip pencil of the same color as your lipstick, fill in your entire lip. This will keep the color looking rich all night long. Apply the lipstick, preferably a long-lasting brand, and spread it evenly on your upper and bottom lip. You can even use a lip brush to fill in the lines. Last, apply a gloss of the same shade on your bottom lip and rub them together. This will give your lips that “plump” illusion, while bringing out the rich colors.

There you have it! Now you can put on a little black dress and rock your Gatsby inspired lip all evening!

XOXO,

Chelsea
