Happy National Lipstick Day! How To Get A FREE Matte Lipstick, Liner and Glam Bag

National Lipstick Day!

National Lipstick Day!

It’s National Lipstick Day!  In it’s honor here are my favorite lipstick tips and tricks for summer lips plus my favorite current on trend shades!

Lip Prep Tip:  Use a facial brush on your lips in the morning to gently exfoliate and get them smoothed out for your lipstick!  I’ve been using the Avon Anew Cleansing Brush every day and making sure to go over my lips.  Not only does it help remove flakes it also helps remove gentle signs of aging around the lips.

Full Lips Contour Trick:  Line your lips with a shade darker than your lipstick.  Don’t completely fill in your lips but create a thick line.  Then apply your lipstick but don’t go all the way out.  Use a lip brush to the blend where the two meet.

Highlighting Lip Tip:  Use mark. Touch and Glow as your lip highlight.  Apply on your cupids bow and right under the center of you bottom lip with a concealer, cream or foundation brush.  After you’ve applied your lip color use your finger to apply it on the center of your top and bottom lip over the color.

Heal Chapped Lips Trick:  Steep a tea bag for 1-2 minutes then press it in-between your lips for 30 seconds.  Instantly your chapped lips will be no more!

Current Favorite Lip Trend:  Matte!  I’ve been loving the matte lip trend in fun bright shades, like Avon Perfectly Matte in Ideal Lilac and mark. Lipclick matte in Siren!  (and so has Lucy Hale as seen here!)Even more is this same shade makeup artist Lauren Anderson shows you how to apply in this video:

The matte lip trend is not going anywhere anytime soon.  Lucky for us Avon just released a new perfect matte formula in 12 super on trend shades!  Here’s what’s awesome about this:  Lipstick is cheap!  Seriously cheap… like on sale for $5.99 a pop.  Which means no matter your budget you can squeeze in a little lipstick tube that will instantly transport your look.  Not a lipstick wearer?  Well nows the time to become one because this formula isn’t drying or cakey but velvety and moisturizing.

After stalking bloggers, you tubers and fellow customer and rep reviews it seems like the biggest hits from this release are Coral Fever, Ideal Lilac, Hot Plum and Electric Pink!  But honestly, I’ve tried them all and I like all of them.  I’m wearing Ideal Lilac in the pictures above over a Glimmersticks Lip Liner in Pink Cashmere (which is why it looks more pink than lilac).  These shades are really modern so you can’t go wrong so check them out here!  Be sure to follow me on FB and IG for more pics of each of these new shades!

Happy National Lipstick Day! (and Get A Free Lipstick and Lipgloss!)

Today is National Lipstick Day and in honor I thought I’d share my lip favorites lately and a FREE Lipstick offer!

Summer Time Go-To:  Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Creamy Melon (NOW ONLY $4.99). This formula wears more like a glossy balm and has a bit of shine and extremely nourishing and I love it.  The easy melon coral shade is super flattering for an every day shade during the summer.

Basic Neutral:  Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Tender Mauve (NOW ONLY $4.99)  This is one of those matches your natural lip color shades so it’s good for a wear to work day shade.

Spicy Shade:  Avon Ultra Color Indulgence Lip Color in Chocolate Rose (NOW ONLY $4.99!) Brown shades are super on trend right now but this one is a little spicy with some red undertones.  This kind of shade is  a great way to wear a bold shade without being to loud.

{Sidenote:  obiviously I’m really digging this mark. Box Set Necklace ($24.00).  It just always goes!  All 3 pics were taken on different days and yes I wear black that often}

Red Hot Lip Color – mark. All Butter Now in Fired Up ($11).  This red is the perfect summer red.  Because the formula is more a nourishing balm you wouldn’t expect the color pay off to be so much but it’s amazing.
