Selfie Makeup Tips

We all want our makeup to look perfect in our selfies, don't we?  So do make-up manufacturers, because that means good publicity and more sales for them.

The first step is to use the right products.

According to the New York Times, companies are now making sure their products pass the 'selfie test' before putting them on the market. CLICK HERE to find out what they are doing.  It makes good business sense to be in tune with your customer and to make products that meet their needs.

Lip Creases Are The Enemy

Yes, I have been going on, and on, and on about my lips.  This will be my final pity party...for now.

My lips have creases, and whenever I apply lipstick guess where it ends up? Yep, that's correct, in those creases and it looks absolutely dreadful.

To combat this I
  1. smile as widely as possible to prevent the lipstick from going into the creases 
  2. apply the lipstick sparingly
  3. use my finger or lip brush to apply the lipstick evenly
  4. blot my lips with tissue to remove any excess product
Is this 100% effective every time? Nope.  


It's another reason for my 'Bring on the Gloss Campaign' (CLICK HERE for the details).
