Matte VS Gloss

Let’s face it. .matte is taking over!! From lipsticks, glosses and even nail polish, Matte is the 1st lipstick choice for many. But…  don’t count Gloss out just yet.  Gloss had been around for ages and has some pretty good benefits.  

Check out my take on the 2 below:

Matte Pros and Cons

Matte lip colors give a sophisticated, intense and full coverage look. Most times its absolutely gorgeous and it stays on longer than other formula 

BUUUUUTTTT…..

It can be extremely drying and can give your lips the look of being dehydrated and even shriveled.  Matte is a BIG NO for women with smaller lips, or looking to create fuller supple lips. 

Gloss Pros and Cons 

Gloss is a lip color that adds shine, moisture and fullness. Gloss always has a way of giving your lips a youthful supple appearance.

BUUUUUTTTT 

It doesn’t have a long wear life so you’ll need to reapply frequently. 

When shopping for your new gloss check the label for key words that give you clues of the wear time.  Words like luster, lacquer, gel and glass typically mean long wear. Crystal, wet, transparent, glaze or juicy usually mean they’re super shiny but they have a shorter wear time. 

So there you have it! Matte VS Gloss…..

A BIG mistake I’ve been making

I like to consider myself a realist when it comes to a lot of things.

Then there is that part of me that loves to dream. About my future and how much my life will change… Soon!

But I HAVE to be honest with myself… And as much as I hate to admit it….  I am NOT a celebrity…. Yet (speaking it into existence)

But, when it comes to how we see and present ourselves we tend to compare ourselves to other. Not just regular others either.. Celebrity others!

Like, I may do a awesome makeup tutorial and see a well known YouTuber and totally discredit myself and my work because hers is so much better than mine.  Silly I know but I’ve recognized that I am not the only woman that does that.

Comparison is a super big confidence killer!!

The thing is.. I am a real woman working hard to reach my goals. I haven’t gotten to that status yet so how can I compare myself to someone that has?? Honestly, We are not yet on the same level.

It’s unfair to me for me to do that!

SOOO I’ve decided that I will no longer compare myself to others but instead I will embrace where I am and my journey and continue to grow into all God has created me to be. No bigger slap in Gods face then to wish to be where someone else is… Right??!!

I’m keeping my eyes on my own makeup! images5A5A7LEQ

So I have a question for you.. Who are you comparing yourself to?

Have any tips on avoiding comparisons?? Comment  below

Stay Confident!
