Lip Wrinkles

One of my biggest pet peeves is the tiny wrinkles I get above my upper lip! Ahhh, perhaps a stern reminder of the damage that too much sun and cigarette smoking can do to the outside of our bodies. Yes, I too have been known to bake in the sun without sunscreen as well as light up those foul smelling sticks now and then -- but I am learning, the hard way of course! It's funny how all the things that my Mother warned me about seem to come true - I guess Mother really does know best, in this case anyway!

The Potion

Take about one tablespoon sugarcane juice and half teaspoon turmeric powder. Mix both well. (You can also add a touch of almond or vitamin E oil too if you like) Apply this mixture directly on the wrinkles around the mouth. I use a this stiff eyebrow brush to get it directly into the wrinkle or you can also use a soft toothbrush. Apply gently in a circular motion. Leave on for about 10 minutes and rinse with water. As a follow up and to lock in moisture apply Vaseline or lip balm directly to to lips and just beyond. Using your fingers or the soft toothbrush, buff the Vaseline onto your lips to smooth and get rid of any dead skin cells on the lips. Now apply more and leave on overnight! Your lipstick will glide onto your soft kissable lips in the morning!

Mamma Mia would be so proud. What a sweet youthful pout you have! And so natural.....

You are Always Beautiful

Always remember that beauty means different things to different people. If you feel good about yourself then chances are you radiate beauty. If you try to be something that you are not, your efforts are in vain - true beauty comes from within

How to Make Up for a Full Natural Pout

OK, so your pout is nothing to shout about, we can fix that! Why do you think they call it make- up?

  1. First step is to do a smoothing, moisturizing treatment as described above OR do a quick smoother with some lemon lip balm and a soft toothbrush.
  2. Reapply lemon lip balm and let it sink in and absorb for a few minutes.
  3. Carefully line your lips using a neutral shade that matches and enhances your own coloring. Keep the line right on your own natural lip line. Do NOT draw an unnatural looking line in an effort to exaggerate your lips, it looks clown-like and phoney. This trick will make your lips look full and natural. Now fill in the rest of your lips with the same color pencil.
  4. Now apply a shiny neutral colored lip gloss - not lipstick. Although lipstick does have better staying power we are after shiny and full here so you will want to carry gloss with you to reapply during the day.
  5. Now for the secret weapon from the depths of a makeup artist's bag: Take an almost white highlighter powder - you can use white eyeshadow or a very light bright highlighting powder typically used to highlight or enlarge areas of the face that you want to emphasize. Dot it on the center of your bottom lip. You want the center of pout lighter so the appearance is a full sexy,natural set of lips!Painting 101: Light shades make larger -
  6. Last but not least: have fun! Make up should be fun way to accentuate your features and not a serious attempt to be something that you are not!

      I couldn't agree more Kitty, unfortunately in my younger years I wasn't very proactive about caring for my lips, when I noticed tiny wrinkles I was devastated and only then started my lip care routine! By this time it is so difficult to reverse the sun damage, smoking damage, etc.!

      Don't take that mouth for granted folks! And speaking of the importance of our earthly attributes do check out Kitty's magical hubs - you won't be disappointed!
