When To Be Bold? Lipstick vs. Lip-Gloss
Your lips make a statement, so on a big date — or even a first — what do you want your lips to stay? Here comes the age-old question of should you go for bold (lipstick) or play it safe (lip-gloss).
There’s no doubt about it, lipstick is all about color, and has a look-at-me attitude. Whether a bold red or demure nude, your lips will stand out. The down side is re-application and the occasional licking of the lips. If you want to play up your eyes on your date, you should probably leave the lipstick at home. No man wants to be overwhelmed by too much on your face.
With just one swipe from your gloss wand, you’ll have shimmery, shiny and juicy lips. However, there is a problem of the stickiness factor. Of course lip-gloss will give off the laid back vibe, but you can jazz it up by having dramatic eye makeup or even attention grabbing earrings.
So it’s up to you which way you want to take it or what features you want to play up! Either way, you’ll rock it.
1. Buy (or find somewhere in your house) a picture frame – size depends on how many earrings you have
2. Remove the backing and glass from the frame
3. Cut our wire netting to fit to the size of the frame
4. Stretch the write tightly and staple into the frame about an inch apart.
5. Put earrings through wire netting and enjoy!
The mod look of the ’60s started in London. Glamorous movie stars like Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn adopted this look. Eye makeup featured the thick cat-like eye liner, matte eye shadows in colors like green, blue and grey and bold colored red colored lips. The hair in this decade was fabulous. Most styles had either straight hair or glossy curls, but either look was sleek. No fly away hairs on these ladies!
