Ever wanted to be able to make your own lip gloss? Well now it’s possible, and it’s even easy!

You will need, 1 handful of rasberries/strawberries, 1 tube of chapstick.

Follow these simple instructions to get the perfect lipgloss.

  1. Mash up about 5 or six rasberries or strawberries in a small bowl.
  2. Take out your tube of chapstick and wind it until almost all of it’s out.
  3. Place the chapstick and the rasberries in a bowl, mix.
  4. Now just place as much as needed on your lips and you’ll have a natural and moisterising lip gloss.

So gloss it up, or even better DIY it up.

I know my last post had to do with another makeup (Cargo Essential Eyeshadow

Palette) but I’m really in love with this one too! It’s called Botanical Lipstick by Cargo.

It’s all natural and $2 out of each sale will go to St.Jude Children’s Research Hospital. But that’s not the only thing awesome about it. It gives great shine and sparkle and great moister. My lips are like the desert, but this lipstick made my lips like the rain forest (I know bad analogy but still… the lipstick is very moisturizing!) The shade I got was ‘Sarah’ (or ‘shimmering pink pearl’) and I think it is universaly hot on everyone, so if you wanted to to try a color, I suggest that one. There are 17 shades to choose from though, so if you don’t like that one don’t worry. The final price is $2o. But, if your willing to find a Sephora masterclass called, ‘7 in 7’ you can get it for free. I was casualy browsing Sephora when I stumbled across the class and got a sampler bag with the lipstick in it. But even if your not as lucky as me and need to pay full price, I think it is an investment you won’t regret.

Classic red lips.

The wonderful effects of lip gloss

The wonderful effects of lip gloss

Across the world there are confused people, staring into their purses wondering what to do. They are wondering what they should put on their lips, lipstick or lip gloss? This World Wide phenomenon has finally caught my attention and I’m ready to address it. My answer is (drum roll please!) it depends. For everyday use definitely lip gloss, it’s totally young and chic, plus all that is required to get high shine is one simple swish of the brush. Bottom line lip gloss is good for people on the go but if you want to look fancy leave the Lip gloss at home. If you want to use lipstick you have to be at least 19 and you have to be going to a fancy event or you look over done. If you want to young it down a little bit (making the wearing age 17+) wear bright colars like bright pink or light orange. Bottom line, lipstick is good for formal events, but is more mature than lip gloss.

Best solution, wear both! Do a base coat of lipstick then a top coat of clear lip gloss to get a sophisticated, young, sexy, look that is perfect for school, work, or any event.
