Bold Lips

Our model Joana is a recent hard working grade12 graduate from Sisler High school, where she was the chair of the grad committee. She is a full time science student at the U of W working on her Bio-Chem. degree. Joana is hoping to get into the Faculty of Medicine at U of M and to specialize in dermatology and work towards becoming a plastic surgeon. This gal has a natural knack for attracting the camera that she was discovered at the age of 7 by a talent agent from abs-cbn and was asked to do a commercial for JOLLIBEE. She did not forget all that GLAM exposure from such a young age and until now she has learned how important it is to always take care of yourself and have healthy skin, thus wanting to be a dermatologist. She has volunteered her time since she was in Grade 9 at the Seven Oaks hospital. For such an ambitious lady, we decided to do a bold lip to bring out her inner diva.

When you think of bold lips you think of celebs such as Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani. Their lip emphasis showcases their perfect pout. Just as accessories such as scarves and boots become must-haves when the weather gets colder, so do lipstick and color rich lips. However, lipstick can be intimidating to someone who doesn’t wear it too often. It’s easier than you might think and with these step-by-step tips and useful hints, a bold lip look can be just as easy to apply as grabbing a favorite lip-gloss!

For lipsticks and not lip stains, you may want to blot the lip by gently pressing a tissue onto your lips and this will help to set the color and remove any excess. Apply a second layer of lipstick as you did the first but more saturated. Re-blot once more and gloss or keep matte.

There you have a classic red lip look! Have FUN!
