Great lips can really set off your style, but what’s the best way to choose and apply lipstick or gloss? There are definitely a few do’s and don’t’s when it comes to getting great looking lips.
To get nude lips, cover your lips with concealer or foundation before applying gloss. This renders lips practically colorless and looks great with dark eyes.
Lip gloss is infamous for wearing off fast. However, if you fill in your lips with a liner, you’re giving the gloss something to stick to.
Is your lipstick too bright? You can take the color down a few notches by coloring in your lips with a darker liner before applying any bright shade.
Lipstick that doesn’t end up on your cup or your husband’s cheek, will end up in you (as crazy as that seems). I read ages ago that the average woman consumes about 6 pounds of lipstick over the course of her lifetime. However, there’s no need to worry. The ingredients in lipstick won’t harm you and are broken down by stomach acids.
To use lipstick as a blush, dab a few dots on the apples of your cheeks and blend, blend, blend. It helps to have moisturized skin first so the lipstick blends well.
