As seasons change, not only does our color palette, but also the texture of the makeup we use. Spring is the time of year when I start recommending lighter color saturation in lipsticks for my clients. There are many lip products to choose from: gloss, tinted balms, satin lipsticks, stains, matte formulas. As always, the choice is a matter of personal preference and good taste. Most women have tried a myriad of different lip colors and know the shades and textures to which they usually gravitate.
One of my favorites for daytime is a transparent lipstick. It’s texture is between a lip gloss and a lipstick; very sheer but hydrating. With a lip pencil application underneath, I have found this product to have longevity and give a more polished and sophisticated look than just a lip gloss. Matte lipsticks are even longer lasting. Most importantly however, always remember that almost anything, when applied properly is going to look great!
