As a Clinique consultant, I didn’t receive concert tickets, but I received so much free makeup I had to give some away just to make room for the new stuff. And the training… oh mercy – the training. A day spent learning about makeup… Heaven. On top of that there were the fancy hotels they put us up in while we attended said training.
Wiping poopie bottoms and folding 50 million loads of laundry per day while wearing makeup and refereeing disputes on who stole the tires off of the Mazda Hot Wheels is the compromise I made from the a glamorous life I once led.
Why are y’all yelling at me to get to the point!!???!!
What I am getting at, is this handy tip I learned years ago while selling Clinique. I use it to this day and it keeps my lipcolor on forever, without the expensive and drying, clumpy goo that is known as long-lasting lipstick. This also is great for creating a fuller look for your lips.
First: Apply dots of concealer around the lips. Nothing crazy – don’t go overboard. Just a dab to blend.
Second: Line the lips right at the edge. Don’t go too far outside of the lips – you’ll look like a clown. And that is not in style, last I checked. Also, fill in a bit of the lips with the liner. (this goes a long way in helping color last).
Fourth: apply lipstick/gloss. I don’t have a photo of this or the final result. But seriously, it’s not like I really needed any of these photos to explain what I was talking about… I just felt the need to continue the apparent theme on my blog this week: lookatme!!lookatme!!!
Let me know if you try it. I love the impact it has on my lips.
