Quote: Avril Lavigne

Standard

‘Life is like a roller coaster, live it, be happy, enjoy life.’

‘Well, a lot of people don’t know this about me, but I’m actually shy around people avril-lavigne-latest-wallpapers-6I don’t know. I would just say with my first concert, my first tour, I didn’t really talk onstage. I was like, ‘Thank you, I love you guys,’ or whatever. But now I’ve just kind of learned to work a crowd.’

‘You get built up and put on a pedestal and then people want to bring you down. It can be hurtful. Some people try to make me look bad or not a nice person but it’s completely false.’

‘Why should I care what other people think of me? I am who I am. And who I wanna be.’

‘I have always looked for ways to give back because I think it’s a responsibility we all share.’

‘I’m very free-spirited and crazy. I love to have fun, and I like doing stupid things. At the same time, I’m like a 35-year-old. I have a house. I have a car. I have a steady job. I have a business, and I have to make serious decisions.’

‘I don’t believe war is a way to solve problems. I think it’s wrong. I don’t have respect for the people that made the decisions to go on with war. I don’t have that much respect for Bush. He’s about war, I’m not about war – a lot of people aren’t about war.’

‘I’m very comfortable with how I look. I always have been. I think I look pretty good. There’s nothing I want to change. I’m pretty happy with what I’ve got.’

‘I don’t fight. I don’t believe in it.’

Beauty: Lip Crayons

Standard

Lip Crayons Close UpEver had the problem of wanting to wear lipstick but not having the confidence to do so? Or thinking it looks too bright, too dark, too much? Or maybe lipstick just isn’t your thing but you still want some colour on your lips? Me too.

I don’t think that I’m particularly great at applying lipstick especially when it’s dark. I also don’t think it really suits me. But I do like to have colour on my lips so my solution is Lip Crayons.

The ones I have, I’ve had a while, so unfortunately I cannot tell you what mine are but to be perfectly honest, mine were a bargain buy from PoundStretcher so any you find are bound to be just as good or better than mine.

In case you are totally lost or totally out of your comfort zone, I’m going to tell you how I use and apply my lip pencils:

  • For a normal lipstick look, I just apply the crayon very strongly as I would any other lip pencil. To make this last longer, I’ll apply a gloss over the top.
  • For a more natural, or subtle, look I’ll lightly apply the crayon, if I’ve applied it too dark I’ll add lip balm over the top; this evens out the colour and mellows it a bit. If it needs lightening more, then I’ll blot my lips with a tissue and apply more lip balm.

I think Lip Crayons are very useful not only because they fix all of the above problems with wearing lipstick but also because they’re not the type of product that get all over your teeth or around your face. They last a while but it does, of course, fade, like anything else, but it does this in a gradual and more natural way so that you’re not left with smears of lippy across your lips or an uneven tone.
