Luscious Lips are Important for Sexy Makeup

Sexy makeup and lips. Did you know that lips represent one of the most sensual aspects of a woman’s body? According to a study, a woman’s lips are the most attractive part of her body, especially if she’s wearing red lipstick (yay for the red lipstick….my favorite!!).

Get this….scientist Dr. Geoff Beattie found that in the ten seconds after meeting a woman for the first time, the average man will spend more then half his time gazing at her mouth. If she’s applied lipstick, he’ll find it difficult to look away……pink holding his attention for 6.7 seconds, red keeping him fixated for 7.3 seconds. He also went on to say that even though full, red lips combined to deliver the perfect pout to achieve male fixation, women who simply wear lipstick, regardless of their lip type, secure significantly greater levels of attraction than those who do not.

So ladies….let’s practice our pouts.  Read on for a few of our special “Luscious Lips” techniques just for you! 

Natural Lip Plumper:  I was reading somewhere that if you combine a teaspoon of cayenne pepper and a little pinch of cinnamon to a lip balm, mix it together and apply that mixture to your lips for five minutes, your lips will be plumper for two to three hours. I must say I haven’t tried this particular concoction, but I do have a few additional tricks that will make your lips appear fuller.

Exfoliate & Moisturize:  Okay….your first step is to exfoliate your lips. Nothing looks worse then cracked, dry lips. You can use a washcloth, an exfoliant that you have, or even a toothbrush (yes…a toothbrush), to remove excess skin from dry or chapped lips. By the way, it’s always a good idea to put your Night Cream on your lips as well, before going to sleep. Lips need moisture too.

Foundation on your lips:  What you want to do next is to put a liquid foundation or concealer on your lips. When I’m applying my foundation, I always put it over my lips. For those who wear a mineral powder foundation, use a cream concealer over the lips.

Line your lips:  Next, you will take a lip pencil and line your lips. Those who know me, know that I love RED Lipstick and that I love Arbonne skincare and makeup. So…..these are the Arbonne products I use for my sexy, pouty, red lips. My Lip Liner is Arbonne’s Cherry Lip Liner. I follow my lip line, going a bit above it. When you look at your lips in the mirror, you will see that above your natural lip line, it is a bit lighter, almost whitish. That is where I line my lips. Then, fill in your lips with that same liner, excluding a small part in the center of your lower lip. Do not fill that in. Use your fingertips to soften the lip line you have created.

TWO shades of lipstick:  Now, you need two shades of lipstick, both in the same color family, one darker and one lighter. Take the darker color (here I use Arbonne’s Runway Rouge Lipstick…..best color EVER!) filling in all parts of your lips, except that little area in the center of your lower lip. Now, using the lighter color (Arbonne’s Rose Petal) fill that part in, making sure to use your finger to blend them together, as smoothly as possible.

Highlight:  It’s all about optical illusion, so next, take a liquid Highlighter (Arbonne’s Sheer Glow Highlighter) and highlight the area just above your upper lip called the “Cupid’s Bow”. You can use a small brush for this, or your finger.

Lip Gloss:  Finally, it’s gloss. I only put the gloss on the lower lip in the center area. You are free to put it all over. my partner in The Core Beauty Workshop, Melissa McNamara, loves gloss all over, but I prefer it just in the center. Here I use Arbonne’s Lip Polish in Pearl. I think it’s the perfect finishing touch.
