 Hello my beautiful peeps!!! 
This is a new section in my blog of “what’s in your kitty” where we’ll discuss about what and how you should have in your makeup closet.
I will begin this section with one of the things which can be found in each and every lady’s kitty world over- young, old, fair or not so fair.. and its probably the first thing a girl owns and I am guessing that this is something that we learn to use right from the time we are in our mothers’ womb!!!! *wink* *wink*
Yes! Your guess is as good as mine!!! We are talking about LIPSTICKS!!! So let’s discuss lipsticks- they are so simple yet so much details to keep in mind while choosing them. So lets understand them…………..
There are just 2 simple things that need to be kept in mind while choosing a lipstick- Texture and Shade.


MATTE: Looking for transfer resist all day long lipsticks? Well, matte lipsticks is where your search will end. These lipsticks are highly pigmented, give fuller coverage which means that it makes the colour pop! However they lack shine and may dehydrate the lips. The best time to wear them is when you can’t do a touch up for a long time like at work. Down side- mattes highlight wrinkles. L

SATIN/ CREAM: These lipsticks have a considerable amount of moisture in it and thus, glides on smoothly making it easy to work with. It hydrates the lips and have a decent shine. Most companies offer a wide range of these kind of lipsticks.

FROST: These are shiny but give a subtle, pale finish. Not the ideal one to wear for a night out. These shades don’t work well with darker complexions, however its best suited for younger lips.
SHEER: These lipsticks have a lot of shine like a gloss and last longer than them. They are perfect for a date. The bring positive attention to your lips without screaming for attention.

GLOSS: is mostly a liquid lip color with tons of shine in it. (my personal fave) Though they don’t last very long and need a touch up several times a day they do make the lips look beautiful and sexy.

LIP LINER: These are usually lip pencils or the like. They are used to outline the lips and sometimes can make your lips look bigger or fuller if applied smartly (applies for thin lips)

Now that we are clear on the different textures available and which would be the best for you, lets talk about the must have colours.

BRIGHTS: Gone are the days when only the fair complexioned gals could wear the bright hues with confidence. So you can be of any complexion but you gatta have some of these bright shades in your kitty.

REDS: You can hate it or love it but you can’t ignore the colour of fire, desire and passion. You can opt for any of the reds – a pink or a orange undertone red or a bold blood red! You can never go wrong with a red lipstick. Like they say when I doubt wear RED!!!!

PINKS: are my personal favourite! They go well with every occasion and attire!!! Pinks too have a wide range of hues to it. From carnation pink to dusty rose or to a bold fuchsia. A total feminine shade!!

ORANGES/ CORALS: Orange hues were HUGE last season and are still seen around. The more subtle shades like tangerine or peach for subtle occasion and carrot orange or a goldfish orange for a party wear. There is a shade for everyone.

NEUTRALS: These shades are required for subtle or official wear or just one of those days when you wanna keep it low key.

BROWNS: This is one shade which can be used for both- a dramatic look or a soft look. Browns look good on any skin tone and for any time of the day.

NUDES:  You maybe a girl who loves color but you cant miss out on not having a couple of nude shades in your kitty. They work best with all skin tones and age groups. They are a must for the thumb rule that if you wanna draw the attention to your eyes then use nude colour for your lips. They also are very wearable for work so your makeup stays as minimalistic as possible.

Nudes look great even with LBD
