Kissing Guide 💋

The Kissing Guide 💋

Take your masks off and grab the mistletoe. Forget the presents, mulled wine and snow-covered treetops—you know that the holidays are all about kissing.

The truth is, even if you're already pretty great at a little passion there's probably something more you can learn about making the perfect kiss. That is because so many people overlook kissing, especially once they’ve moved on to other moments. But kissing is key and fully deserving of your attention and effort. We have put together their tips on the perfect kiss.

1: Take Your Time, Mon Amie...

Take your time because you want to be up all night. “It is the same as a sexy dance. A fast strip-tease is never sexy,” says Madame G. If you’re feeling anxious about your kissing abilities, then stop. "That anxiety is likely going to impact the entire experience. The best kisses are the ones that are relaxed, long and sensual because lips, like a good wine, need time to linger.” Our tip is to grab some PARIS AT 7PM and go nice and slow until you feel yourself start to settle down and get into the groove. The results? Magnifique kisses.

2: Pressure Is Key

"One of the most basic ways that people mess up kissing is by going to extremes with the amount of pressure they use,” says Maru, from our chic graphic design team. As she details, "bumping teeth and hitting noses makes a kiss feel lifeless, It’s all about the right about of pressure in the right places.” Graciela from our accounting team agrees, noting that practice makes perfect "You can practice finding the right amount of pressure by using the back of your hand. Try pressing your lips loosely against your hand, then pressing them forcefully. From there, try to find a middle-of-the-road level of firmness that feels just right. Then go from there. It's all about reading the moment. Maru also suggests to visualize kissing in the context of another activity. "I think of kissing the way I think about washing my hair with my hands, because I always begin gently, add a bit more control and pressure until it feels firm and rhythmic, then finish with a gentle release.” 

3: Envelope Your Man (In Warmth)

Like keeping your lover warm when it’s cold outside, The best kisses involve your entire bodies, not just your lips! Angelica from our certification group is an expert in bringing her man into the mix. “A kiss is wonderful but the man in my life is so intoxicating — his crisp white Italian cotton shirts, and tapered business suits…I just want to pull his tie towards me and envelope myself in the smell of his aftershave and five o’clock stubble on that olive skin.” Her tip: wrap your arms around your partner, or stroke their arms, shoulders, and back with your hands. Press your body up against his. Hold their face in your hands, or run your hands through their hair. Move your mouth from lips to ears. As Angelica says, “your hands are really an extension of my lips” so grab some NEW YORK AT 1PM and let’s get warm together.

4. Moist Not Wet

"The surf-side kiss” is a fabulous term used by Cecila from our team. “I had a lover who was always surfing on weekends. He would come back from the beach smelling of summer by the sea and fishing for a kiss or two on return. His hair and face would always have that damp and oh so soft feeling,” Cecila tells us. “… And I won’t lie, he was a first class kisser and it made me think that like his golden locks and knowing smile, his kisses had just the right about of moisture.” Cecila's learning: a soggy kisser is a huge letdown but the right amount of wetness is a winner; So lovers, this holiday go to a sunny place and find yourself a surf-side kisser too.  Grab your “summer in a tube” of SYDNEY AT 8AM and get ready to dive in.

5. Let Him Know

A bit of noise can go a long way according to our ever so chic color specialist, Angelica. "Some detractors may tell you noise during kissing is not preferred. They are wrong. It is everything,” Angelica gushes. Call it her Latin style or way with words, but we have to agree with her. "A little verbal reaction is a good way of checking in and to let your excitable lover know you’ve not collapsed in the passion of the moment.. or at least not yet.” And yes, a little praise about performance never hurt anyone. And speaking of hurt, you’ll be able to tell your partner that all that kissing won’t harm them because each color in the Madame Gabriela collection is packed with more goodness than any man you’ve kissed in your past - and always non-toxic (the lipstick, not the men….). x

So grab your red, pink or nude, and go kiss for the season, because those lips are made for clean holiday kisses.
