The beginning of a new eara

The first lipstick found its way around 5,000 years ago, when men and women were possibly the first ones to ever invent and wear the famous lippie. It has ever since been a symbol of many things – power, feminity and confidence. 

The lip product were made of crushed gemstones and was used as a face makeup, mainly on the lips and eyes. The product has survived decades and is still one of the most wanted products out there – both for women and men. We can see why!

In 1915 a woman by the name Maurice Levy invented the first metal lipstick tube, which became the beginning of a new era and replaced the silk paper that used to be around the lipstick. The first companies that started selling the first lipstick were companies like Chanel, Guerlain, Elizabeth Arden and Estè Lauder.

How to find the perfect lipstick for you

The times have certainly changed since the first lipstick was introduced to the industry, where today you can buy lipsticks that are either vegan or based on natural ingredients. You can also make your own if you prefer it. Pinterest is always full of ideas.

The Bold Red Lipstick 

When choosing a lip product many lip-wearers prefer a bold colour with a reddish shade that goes with their toughness or edgy style. You can wear a bold lippie for many things and it also makes you look badass. The red lipstick is not only a trick in the book to draw more attention, but it also symbolises strength and confidence. A red lipstick is also a good choice if you want a look that makes you stand out and matches well with your business woman attitude.

Whether you want a matte or glossy finish, there are so many shades to choose from and you can find the perfect red colour that matches your personality and style.

The Nude Look

If you dont feel confident enough to wear a bold lippie you might love the nude look. There are many nude shades with matte texture in todays lipsticks and it is not without reason why the “nude lippie” is so popular. Not only is it a daily favourite to wear, but it doesn’t draw too much attention. The nude lippie ranges in different shades where you can go light or semi dark depending on what you are most comfortable with.

Wearing a nude lippie is also a great way to make people see more of your outfit, especially if you are wearing a fancy dress or skirt. It also brings out the natural look which is a criteria many users prefer.
