Two Easy Lipstick Tips You'll Use Every Day

Two Easy Lipstick Tips You'll Use Every Day

La Prairie has long been known for its luxurious skincare line, with stars like Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes counted amongst its large celebrity fan base. The brand has definitely established a cult following since its inception in 1978, but did you know that La Prairie has a line of makeup as well?

Raychel Wade, the brand's color ambassador and founder of cosmetic consulting firm Cheek to Chic, has offered up some very helpful ideas for all of us. More on her makeup advice later, but to find out my two favorite lip-color tips, just read more.

  • Three's a charm: If you're trying to figure out what to put in your makeup bag, follow Raychel's easy-to-do advice. "Have three lipsticks or lip glosses, but in different family colors," she says. "There's no point to have three neutral glosses in your purse," she adds. (Ahem, guilty here. You?) The point is that you'll always have something to coordinate with the outfit you're wearing no matter what. Tip: For family colors, think reds, corals, berries, bricks, and champagnes, etc.
  • Scared of the dark?: For Fall, we're always hearing about going dark with lipstick choices. Raychel admits that she doesn't feel as comfortable wearing a dark lip, but offers up a great alternative. "A nice way to do it is to take a dark lipstick, and use light lip gloss on top of it. It's a very sexy way to play up your lip without compromising your comfort zone," she says. To tone down the dark, Raychel recommends Cellular Lip Color Effects ($40) in Maribou Glace, a pink shade; or Firefly Glace, a peachy copper.

Only three? No, no, no. Closer to ten... or twelve... and I'm certainly not guilty of having a whole ton of neutrals in my makeup bag, nuh-uh... *looks guilty* :-p

Red, coral and neutral are my 3 go to essentials, I've tried the dark lipstick + light gloss trick before as a teenager as I felt dark red was a bit too dramatic for my age and personality, it worked really well!
