KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

Six Steps to Kissable Lips

1. Exfoliate. Just like with your skin, your lips should be exfoliated at least once a week before moisturizing. Use a dab of olive oil and sugar to gently scrub your lips then rub off with a damp towel. You can also use a toothbrush and petroleum jelly. If you're in a rush, you can also use just the damp towel.

2. Moisturize from the inside out. Avoid junk food and fill up on water.

3. Moisturize on a daily basis. Use unscented lip balm several times a day, especially before bedtime. Try to use lip balms made with less preservatives and chemicals and go for ones made with beeswax and natural oils like coconut, almond or sunflower. I love Burt's Bees Beeswax lip balm.

4. Plump your lips. If you weren't blessed with plump, full lips you can prime them with a collagen lip plumper. I wouldn't use this everyday as it isn't all-natural, but definitely swipe some on underneath your lipstick before a big date.

5. Don't cake on lipstick. Guys do not want to kiss that. Go for a lip stain or lip pencil and coat it with gloss or lip balm.

6. Pick normal colors. Seriously! I mean it. I don't care what is trendy. If you're going out with your girlfriends, wear whatever you want. But if you are going on a date, for the love of God, do not wear lipstick that is bright orange, bubblegum pink or glittery...especially not glittery!

Comments

  1. Some really good info here. Don't you hate it when lipstick is really caked on, or the color just isn't right for that person?
