Just These 3 Lipsticks Can Keep You Fashionable and Hydrated For The Whole Winter

Just These 3 Lipsticks Can Keep You Fashionable and Hydrated For The Whole Winter

When it comes to make up, every woman has her go-to. We have our common ones: eyeliner, blush or foundation. With that, there are a numerous amount of reasons why these products are a go-to favorite. Each one can and will enhance a feature. Whether it is wanting your eyes to pop, covering up some blemishes or just wanting rosy cheeks. Though, there is one product that I feel never gets enough attention. The product happens to be Lipstick.

I have always been a fan of lipstick. It was actually my first official make up purchase. I loved how it comes in many different shades. If you want to feel spontaneous, you may lean towards a bright color. If you are feeling a little down, you may pick up a darker tone, and so on. Another great reason why I love this product, it is so easy to apply! There is not a certain technique that goes into this. But to not look too outrageous, whenever you are applying any lipsticks, try not go over the lines of your lips. If it does happen, it is an easy fix up, along with clean up.

There is one flaw about lipsticks, many do not have any hydration. Which isn’t great, especially for the Winter season. The worst thing that can happen is having chapped lips with lip color marks, making it noticeable. Though applying lip balm, it does limit that from happening, if you do pick up a non hydration lipstick.

Looking for the right color, is such a hassle. Stopping by your local drugstore or mall, trying on every color but to find out they were not as flattering. It’s exhausting. Which is why I am here to help out and save some time. Perhaps money as well. I personally find red and brown a perfect tone for the winter. They look great on every skin tone!

With that said, here are 3 lipsticks that have hydration and are perfect for the Winter season.

NARS Olivia

NARS

    This shade is beautiful! It is not too bright nor not too dark. If you are looking for an evening lip color, this is the one for you. This product is rich and creamy. Lasts all day and you don’t need to apply lip balm! With that said, this is more of the higher end. It goes for $32 at your local Sephora. Personally, I think this is a great investment.

    MAC Viva Glam l

    MAC

      I am a sucker for MAC Cosmetics. This is the perfect shade of red. Like NARS, it is creamy and rich, so smooth to apply. I cannot tell you how many times I have gone to MAC and bought this product simply because I want to have a full stock of it. Great for a simple day time look or even a relaxing night out with friends. Compared to NARS Olivia, this is price that won’t make your bank break, going for $17 at the MAC Cosmetics Store.

      NYX Knock Out

      NYX

        Last but not least, I have the NYX Knock Out. A great lipstick for beginners or anyone who is trying to go for a settled red look. This one is a tad different from the other two, as it is a lip cream stick. Lip creams tend to not last as long as lipsticks. Also, they are not as matte, so if you are looking for a solid color with no gloss, lip creams may not be the best suggestion. What I love about this NYX lip cream, it is so affordable and easy to find! The pricing for this product at any local drugstore goes for $7.

        5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

        5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

        Everyone experiences mental stress at one time or another. Maybe you’re starting a new career, job, or business, or you feel incredibly overwhelmed between work, parenting, and your love life (or a lack of it). It could even be that you simply feel that you have way too much to do and not enough time to do it,  plus, on top of everything, nothing seems to be going the way it should!

        Yup, we all experience mental stress from time-to-time, and that’s okay as long as you have the tools, techniques and knowledge that allow you to fully relieve it once it comes.

        Here are 5 tips for relieving mental stress when it comes so you can function at your best while feeling good (and doing well) in work, love, or life:

        1. Get Rationally Optimistic

        Mental stress starts with your perception of your experiences. For instance, most people get stressed out when they perceive their reality as “being wrong” in some way. Essentially, they have a set idea of how things “should be” at any given moment, and when reality ends up being different (not even necessarily bad), they get stressed.

        This process is simply a result of perception and can be easily “fixed” by recognizing that although life might not always be going as YOU think it should, it’s still going as it should—for your own benefit.

        In fact, once you fully recognize that everything in your life ultimately happens for your own growth, progress, and development—so you can achieve your goals and dreams—your perception works in your favor. You soon process and respond to your experience of life differently, for your advantage. That’s the essence of becoming “rationally optimistic.”

        The result: no more mental stress.

        2. Unplug

        Just like you might need to unplug your computer when it starts acting all crazy, you should also “unplug” your mind.

        Advertising

        How on earth do you unplug your mind? Simple: just meditate.

        It isn’t nearly difficult or complicated as some people think, so, if you don’t already meditate, give it a try. Whether you meditate for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours, this is a surefire way to reduce mental stress.

        Meditation has been scientifically proven to relax your body (resulting in less mental stress), while also reducing anxiety and high blood pressure.

        3. Easy on the Caffeine

        Yes, we know, we know—everyone loves a nice java buzz, and that’s okay, but there’s a fine line between a small caffeine pick-me-up and a racing heart and mind that throws you into a frenzy of mental stress.

        Try giving up caffeine for a while and see how you feel. And, if that’s completely out of the question for you, at least try to minimize it. You might find that lots of your mental stress mysteriously “disappears” as your caffeine intake goes down.

        4. Attack Mental Stress Via the Back Door

        That’s right: your body and mind are part of the whole being, and are constantly influencing and affecting each other. If you’re experiencing a lot of mental stress, try to reduce it by calming your body down—a calm body equals a calmer mind.

        How do you calm your body down and reduce physical stress? A  great way to reduce physical stress (thereby reducing mental stress) is to take natural supplements that are proven to reduce stress and anxiety while lifting your mood. Three good ones to look into are kava-kava, St John’s wort, and rhodiola rosea:

        • Kava-kava is a natural plant known to have mild sedative properties, and you should be able to find it at your natural health food store or vitamin store. It’s available in capsules or liquid extract form.
        • St John’s wort is a natural flower used to treat depression. Again, it’s found at your local health store in capsules or liquid. Because it uplifts mood (enabling you to see the brighter side of all experiences) it helps relieve mental stress as well.
        • Rhodiola rosea is a natural plant shown to reduce stress and uplift mood, and Russian athletes have been using it forever. Like the other two supplements mentioned, rhodiola rosea can be found at your natural health store in capsule or liquid form.

        While these supplements are all natural and can be very helpful for most people, always check with your health care provider first as they can cause side-effects depending on your current health situation etc.

        5. Good Old-Fashioned Exercise

        This tip has been around forever because it works. Nothing relieves mental stress like running, kickboxing—you name it. Anything super-physical will wipe out most of your mental stresses once the exercise endorphins (happy chemicals) are released into your brain.

        The result: mental stress will be gone!

        So, if you’re feeling overwhelmed or just plain stressed, try using some of the above tips. You can even print this out or save it to refer to regularly.
