How to Look Younger: Lips

How to look younger with a rosy lip color

I am always on the hunt for the perfect nude lip color. Using satiny rosy nudes on your lips gives you a youthful glow while severe matte lip colors are aging.  My most recent purchase and current fav is Clinique Chubby Stick (could they not call it “chubby?”) in Bountiful Blush. I like a swipe of natural color on my lips when I’m going to the gym or running an early morning errand so that I don’t look dead.   This one has a smooth texture and rosy hue without any offensive taste and it’s light enough to look natural if you’re not wearing full makeup. Try it with a lip liner and a smoky eye for evening.
