Lipstick Tip 1#
Whenever you wear a red lipstick it is a great idea to conceal around the mouth area. A red lip focuses all the attention to the lip so it pays off if you take that extra time to conceal. Concealing will also make the lip more apparent giving the illusion of fuller lips.

Apply a Concealer on your lips when wearing a light pastel shade. Our lips are naturally pigmented hence by simply concealing the edges you can make your Lipstick shade appear better. Avoid using white to conceal. It is better to run a bit of foundation over the lips or conceal with a Concealer.

Frosted lipsticks are meant to make the lips look fuller but sometimes they can be a bit overpowering and emphasizes the cracks on the lips. Preferably use a cream lipstick and take a dab of a shimmer eye shadow applying it only in the centre of the lips. Press lips to blend.

If your lipstick has trouble staying, then apply a bit of translucent powder on the lips in between coats. Apply one coat of lipstick, place a tissue on top, powder over the tissue with a brush making sure that the powder goes through the tissue. The powder will soak up excess oil and will help it to stay longer.

Matte lipsticks tend to be drying and can emphasize lines on the lips. To avoid it you can apply a thick lip gloss first, preferably one with no shimmer, dab it off. Then dab the lipstick on or apply with a brush. This way the gloss will fill in the lines on the lip.

If your lips are too full and you want them to look smaller than use a Concealer pencil around your lips, blend with your finger and use a dark lipstick on the inner part of your lips to desired shape. Don’t over do it as it may seem obvious.

Use your finger to apply lipstick to give your lips a nice flush of colour. When doing so it is better to apply the lipstick only to the inner part of the lips as the lips are naturally pigmented darker towards the ends. This will give your lips one colour over all.

If you have bought a lipstick that is cool toned and want to make it warm toned then don’t worry. Use the cool toned lipstick on your lips and then top it off with a warm toned gloss. If you are not into glosses then use a warm toned lipstick or a bronzing powder.

When using lip liner make sure that it is well blended into the lipstick. The best way to do this is to run your lip brush on the line where the Lip liner meets the lipstick. This will give a nice gradient for a sophisticated look.

Use a brush for a precision line. Lipstick bullets are of many shapes but not each is made for each lip. We all have different lip sizes hence using a brush will give a nice line. Use a brush especially when wearing red or dark lipsticks.
