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.

        How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

        How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

        Ebb and flow. Contraction and expansion. Highs and lows. It’s all about the cycles of life.

        The entire course of our life follows this up and down pattern of more and then less. Our days flow this way, each following a pattern of more energy, then less energy, more creativity and periods of greater focus bookended by moments of low energy when we cringe at the thought of one more meeting, one more call, one more sentence.

        The key is in understanding how to use the cycles of ebb and flow to our advantage. The ability to harness these fluctuations, understand how they affect our productivity and mood and then apply that knowledge as a tool to improve our lives is a valuable strategy that few individuals or corporations have mastered.

        Here are a few simple steps to start using this strategy today:

        Advertising

        Review Your Past Flow

        Take just a few minutes to look back at how your days and weeks have been unfolding. What time of the day are you the most focused? Do you prefer to be more social at certain times of the day? Do you have difficulty concentrating after lunch or are you energized? Are there days when you can’t seem to sit still at your desk and others when you could work on the same project for hours?

        Do you see a pattern starting to emerge? Eventually you will discover a sort of map or schedule that charts your individual productivity levels during a given day or week.  That’s the first step. You’ll use this information to plan your days going forward.

        Schedule According to Your Flow Pattern

        Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.

        Keep in mind that everyone is different and some things are out of our control. Do what you can. You might be surprised at just how flexible clients and managers can be when they understand that improving your productivity will result in better outcomes for them.

        Account for Big Picture Fluctuations

        Look at the bigger picture. Consider what happens during different months or times during the year. Think about what is going on in the other parts of your life. When is the best time for you to take on a new project, role or responsibility? Take into account other commitments that zap your energy. Do you have a sick parent, a spouse who travels all the time or young children who demand all of your available time and energy?

        We all know people who ignore all of this advice and yet seem to prosper and achieve wonderful success anyway, but they are usually the exception, not the rule. For most of us, this habitual tendency to force our bodies and our brains into patterns of working that undermine our productivity result in achieving less than desired results and adding more stress to our already overburdened lives.

        Why not follow the ebb and flow of your life instead of fighting against it?
