Last Wednesday, I shared “My Timesaving, Everyday Makeup Routine.” Today, I’m sharing a little trick I stumbled upon, and it’s also a timesaving hack! I choose my lipstick/blush after I get dressed every day. It may seem a bit weird, but if I’m wearing black or white, I love wearing a red lip and a bright blush. If I’m wearing dark jewel tones, I like a darker lip and coordinating blush. If I’m wearing pink, I like to wear feminine colors on my face. Some may think this takes too much work/thought, but I think it’s so much fun! On this day, my outfit was a bit edgy, and I was determined to wear a natural looking lip. I’d like to wear a natural lip more, but every time I do, I look in the mirror and think, “Ooooo, I need color! I look so pale!” So to give myself some much needed color, I grabbed my red lipstick and…
…applied it to my cheeks, instead! My friend Traci just started snapping the camera and captured it all. This is the trick I use pretty much every day.
Typically, I’ll apply my lipstick to the apples of my cheeks……and then just rub it in.Viola! I was able to keep my natural lip and still look alive! All I needed was a punch of color on my cheeks! My pale lip color is “Tiber” by NARS, and I have Luxembourg by NARS on my cheeks.
I love my timesaving hack of using my lipstick as my blush! I do it almost every day! My favorite lipstick/blush’s are the NARS Lipstick Pencil in Luxembourg, Hyde Park or Dragon Girl. For pink, I like Yu by NARS. For a dark red, I use Charlotte by NARS.
