Some tips I have for making your lipstick last ALL day

1.Lightly scrub away the top surface of your lips with a damp toothbrush to get rid of dull, dry skin cells.

2.Use a non-petroleum lip moisturizer on the lips to moisturize the fresh skin. (Arbonne makes a GREAT one)

3. Blot with a tissue to remove any excess cream.

4. With a brush, gently wipe a light concealer over the lips. This gives you a nice clear line for when you add your lip liner. It also creates a nice base for your lipstick, bringing out its true color

5.¬†Use a sharpened, neutral lip liner around the edge of the lips. Blend it softly in or you won’t be left with any definition once you apply your lipstick.

6.Apply lipstick to the back of your hand, then apply to your lips with a brush.

7.Blend a thick layer of lipstick into the lips and pencil line.

8.Open mouth slightly to apply lipstick into inner corners.

9. Place a thin layer of tissue over the lips and apply loose or pressed powder through the tissue to set the lipstick in place. The tissue gives a finer coverage of powder going through to the lips so that you aren’t removing the lip color — you’re just matting it down and setting it in place.

10. Apply a final layer of lipstick to give a long lasting glossy finish.

Have a rocking day loves.

Say no to the nasties!

Did you know the FDA has no regulations on skincare in the US?¬†Under the law, cosmetic products and ingredients do not needFDA premarket approval, with the exception of color additives…guys that is SCARY!

What does this mean? Well on a basic level anything can be added to our products without being regulated.

Parabens, for instance, are a class of widely used preservatives in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products. Chemically, they are a series of para hydroxybenzoate’s or esters of para hydroxy benzoic acid. Parabens are effective preservatives in many types of formulas and they cause cancer so why they heck would we want to be putting them in or on or even near our bodies?

Arbonne has chosen to follow the guidelines of the Eurpenan Union and the Eropean Cosmetic Directive because their standards are SO high. This makes me feel GREAT about what I am using on my skin!

Do your research! Thoug stors like Target and Macy’s offer an affordable and convient options they are not always the best for your skin.
