Pink Matte Lips




Lipstick or gloss is an important part of every girls beauty routine. One of the hottest beauty trends in popular culture these days are matte lips. Although matte lipstick is a highly sought after beauty feature in fashion. If it is not applied just right you won’t be able to achieve that picture perfect look everyone is after. When it comes to getting your matte lips just right there are two things you must consider. Those two steps are, choosing the right product and exercising the right technique when applying your lipstick.

 

Have you ended up with dry cracked and clumpy results when applying your matte lipstick. Maybe you have even decided that it isn’t for you? Well, I encourage you to try this simple step and give it another try. Here are 3 easy steps to follow to achieve the perfect matte lips.
1. Exfoliate Your Lips-

Gently exfoliating your skin is an important step in achieving a smooth lip texture for applying any lipstick. Below is a simple lip scrub you can make right at home.

Exfoliating Lip Scrub Recipe:

In a small container mix 1-1/2 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil or olive oil. This should be enough to allow the ingredients to just stick together. Put some of the scrub onto your fingertips and gently scrub until all the dead skin is removed. Repeat the process again if necessary. Completely clean the residue of the scrub off of your lips and move on to the next step which is moisturizing.
2. Moisturize Your Lips Before Applying Matte Lipstick

Apply a light lip balm after scrubbing and allow the moisturizer to absorb into your lips before applying the matte lipstick. This will prevent the mixture from becoming too creamy and ruining the matte texture.
3. Apply Your Matte lip Product

When applying the matte lip color be careful not to apply too much to prevent caking. You can outline your lips with a lip liner, then fill in with the matte lipstick building the coverage as needed.

Avon Wrinkle Cream




3 Ingredients You Should Look for When Buying a Wrinkle Cream

Most of us 40 and ups are on the hunt for the best products known to reduce wrinkles? We want to stay looking as young as possible, for as long as possible. The beauty aisle is filled with anti-aging products and wrinkle creams that all claim to erase the signs of aging. Many women are often disappointed with the results of these proclaimed miracle creams and serums. They get frustrated and either purchase another product or give up their search altogether.  Understanding that all anti-aging products are not created equally is the key. In fact some of these creams can actually work very well. So, how can you tell if a wrinkle cream is any good? First things first, take the time to see exactly what’s in the ingredients of the product that you are buying. Below are three ingredients that you should consider looking for when choosing a wrinkle cream.

Retinol

Retinol is derived from Vitamin A and is used to treat a number of common skin issues, from acne to discoloration and wrinkles. Retinol is a strong antioxidant and comes in both prescription and over-the-counter forms. Nonprescription Retinol products are effective, but it can take up to three months before seeing any significant results.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is one of the most widely used supplements in the world due to its tremendous benefits. Like Vitamins A and E, Vitamin C is an antioxidant that works to rid the body of free radicals. Free radicals are nasty little molecules that cause damage to the body, especially collagen. Damage to collagen often results in premature aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids

There are several types of hydroxy acids, but alpha hydroxy acids have been shown to improve wrinkles, sun damage, and roughness. Alpha hydroxy acids are strong exfoliates that accelerate the generation of new skin cells. These acids are also believed to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Alpha hydroxy acids can cause the skin to become more sensitive to the sun, therefore it is important to apply sunscreen daily.
