Tips for the Lips

LIPSTICK

If you are not fortunate to have full lips, wear the lightest, frostiest lipsticks you can find. They will cause your lips to look fuller. Follow with Cosmetics lipgloss.

To prevent lipstick from getting on your teeth, put your finger in your mouth and close your lips-when you withdraw your finger it will remove excess color.

You should use Vitamin E Lip Protector or use ur foundation before application of any type of lipstick. It moisturizes and nourishes the lips preventing dryness and cracking.

If you are over 40 we advise that you should avoid wearing matte lipsticks. You will look best with a little shine on your lips. I recommend that you always use a lip liner since it builds a dam that keeps the lipstick from ‘bleeding’.

To remove lipstick from clothing, apply glycerine on the spot, rub lightly and wash as normal.

No matter what color lipstick you choose ,apply lip liner to the outline and fill in your lips. You can then follow with a lipstick or gloss. When wearing a red lipstick, use a brown lip liner all over first as the red pigment will last longer.

Please DO NOT wear black or green lipstick (unless it is for halloween or some party).

If you see any liquid or water coming out of the lipstick, keep it in a refrigerator.

Avoid using very old lipsticks. They might cause pigmentation of the lips

LIPGLOSS:

Apply lip gloss over lipstick or alone. Remember that gloss would emphasize and therefore make your lips appear to be fuller.

Women with extra-full lips, should use lip gloss very sparingly.
Lip Liner

If lip liner is too dark tone it down with a small amount of foundation then reapply lip liner.

Always use lip liner before and after applying lipstick to define the lips.

Always sharpen your lip liner before lining your lips then touch the tip of the pencil gently to warm, soften and smooth the point.

NEVER wear lip liner and lipstick colors together when they are contrasting colors.

When applying lipstick, fill in your lips with a lip liner first. By this way the second coat of lipstick stays longer.

No matter what color lipstick you choose ,apply lip liner to the outline and fill in your lips. You can then follow with a gloss or lipstick. When wearing a red lipstick, use a brown lip liner all over first as the red pigment will last longer.
