Choosing a Lip Color to Look Younger

Women over 35 are looking for lip color to look younger.  We know everything from the foundation you use to the lip color you wear all creates a certain look you are wanting to achieve!    As we get older, some experts have given guidelines on different colors that look better on aging skin.  I can attest that as I am getting older, my makeup look has changed.  One thing I never thought about was my lips.  For some reason, I just did not think of them as a part of my skin care routine, or if that had an impact on what they looked like.  Well, it does!

The  skin care routine you apply to your face should also extend to your lips. The skin on your lips is actually thinner, and more fragile, than the skin on the rest of your face.  Did you know that your lips do not contain oil glands to keep them hydrated?  This is the main reason your lips shrivel and shrink as you age.  For long-term protection, use a lip balm with  moisturizing oils.  Many chapsticks have a regular wax that acts as a protective barrier, which is good.  But, the issue is no real moisture is being applied, so the dryness and shrinking will still be evident.

One way to solve this issue is with Younique’s Lip Bonbons.    They deeply hydrate your lips.  With a mild vanilla fragrance, fruit extracts, and five natural oils, all you need is just a touch throughout the day to add a subtle hint of color while moisturizing and pampering your lips. And with the Bonbons, you will get the light mauve and pink shades that are recommended for lips over 35!  It is a win, win!  This is truly one item that is a must have, and I have one in my makeup bag at all times!  You can read about these amazing lip balms here:   Lip Bonbons Tinted Lip Balm

In the short term, choose lipsticks in shades of mauve and pink — these help define your lips and add a youthful rosiness without drawing attention to the fact that they’re thinning (like, say, a deep red or a plum would).   Younique has 15 shades of beautiful lipstick colors to choose from.  Many of those are the light pink and mauve shades.    In fact, our top sellers are light pink and mauve!  You check out the awesome colors here:  Moodstruck Opulence Lipstick
