Pucker up With Constantine, From Highland Park

Ask Constantine a question

This weekend we’re celebrating one of the best beauty holidays, National Lipstick Day (or should we say #NationalLipstickDay). Constantine, from our Highland Park, Illinois store, will take it away...

Lipstick has been around for thousands of years. The ancient Mayans, ancient Sumerians, aboriginal tribes in Australia, even the famous Cleopatra wore lipstick! In the modern age, I like to prep the lips with a scrub. Dior just came out with a new addition to their family and I'm hooked. It's an exfoliating balm that leaves lips incredibly soft- the sugar melts away, making it a great lip exfoliant on-the-go. Next, a hydrator is crucial. Natura Bissé’s Diamond Lip Booster nourishes, repairs and minimizes wrinkles with Omega 5’s, turmeric oil and vitamins E+F. Obviously, we can’t prep lips without plumping, and since I’m terrified of needles, I opt for Dr. Lancer’s Volume Enhancing Lip. It’s basically a lip injection in a tube!

On to the good stuff: color! When I go bold, I go bold. Tom Ford’s Lipsticks are truly iconic. Nothing compares to the depth of color and perfect finish. Since there’s no accessory more dramatic than your lips, I go super vampy with Dark and Stormy. For an everyday color I go beige with Guerlain. Beige Lingerie from the La Petite Robe Noire line is my favorite. Simply twist up and apply. Easy as 1, 2, 3! Finally, at the end of the day, I take my lip products off in one swipe with Clé de Peau Beauté’s Lip Makeup Remover Twelettes.
