Chocolate Brown Lipsticks – NOT Just for the Kylie Jenner Generation!

Lipstick makes me feel beautiful and it is an easy pick me up that is always on trend!  I am loving the brown lipsticks. Not to rush the end of summer, but fall is just around the corner and there is a wonderful brown lipstick just right for you.

A few tips first:

  • Choose a color one or two shades darker than your natural lip color.
  • Start with a lip primer to fill in fine lines and stop the color from feathering.
  • Use a lip pencil close to your lip color. You do not need to have a pencil to match each color of lipstick. Line the whole lip or just the bow and center of your bottom lip to accent the pout.
  • Fill in your lip with the pencil and then put the lipstick on top for staying power. Lipstick-Kiss-Mark

The number one tip for luscious lips is to exfoliate. Here are two easy methods and you will definitely see the results.

Mix together a little baking soda plus some water until it’s formed a “gritty paste,”                then apply to your lips with a soft toothbrush or washcloth.

Or

Mix a little olive oil with granulated sugar and rub over your lips.

Always rub gently. Rinse, then apply a lip balm or vaseline.  Here are four great brands and colors to try.

This is a deep chocolate red that stuns with a brown liner. What I like about her site is she swatches the color on three skin tones which helps color checking when buying on line.  Great job Kat Von D!
