While I don’t wear much makeup anymore (age and years in the industry certainly changed that!) I still dabble with a few essentials. Mascara, occasionally tinted moisturizer, always brow shaper (very little brow thanks to no thyroid) and lip color. I believe if you are going to wear lip color, it should be visible. No neutrals for me right now. I guess I just need a little brightening.
And with bright lip color every little line around the lip shows and the color can feather..especially with a moist product…which I prefer. Feathering (or bleeding-don’t like that term) is not a really great look. Just my opinion but every woman I know agrees with me on THAT!
A few years ago, I fell in love with Laura Mercier Anti-Feather Lip Pencil. Best investment ever!
It is a clear wax pencil that literally prevents the lip color from “walking”. This is one of those items that when I’m 90 and with even deeper lines around the lips, i’ll be using. I like to think I will still be applying lipstick then.
I’m down to 1 1/4. The cap on the end makes the short pencil look a bit longer. Time to pick up a few more. You should be able to purchase from any store or online presence that carries LM. I should warn you that quite often it is sold out. It’s that good!
O.k. remember the Glamour Shots from back in the day? Well. this is not one. Hubby took this a few month’s ago prior to something. I can’t remember what. The bangs hide the lines on the forehead while the Laura Mercier Clear lip pencil keeps the lipstick out of those fabulous vertical lines. Eye drops cleared the red eyes. The cutie in the background is my great uncle. Love that photo.
Have a great week and thank you for visiting.
Always big hugs,
