We love wearing our bright colors and glossy gloss, it makes us look good!
But the secret to good looking lips is not the lipstick.
There are a few things to remember when wearing lip product.
It is important to exfoliate and moisturize.
Exfoliate lips with a sugar scrub at least once a week.
Moisturize like crazy!
I have lip balm in my car, by my bed, in my bathroom, in the kitchen, in the garage, keep some handy to keep lips looking good:)
Avoid product with too much sparkle.
Lipsticks and gloss with too much sparkle can look cheap, unflattering, and a little trashy.
Get that shine with a moisturizing formula, not a sparkling one.
Find the right color for your lips.
Make sure your lipstick matches with your skin tone.
When in doubt, go nude.
A nude lip color is flattering for any skin color, so you can never go wrong.
Avoid looking like a vampire.
Colors that are too dark or wash out your skin tone are a no go. Go for something that compliments and brightens your skin tone.
Avoid perfect lines
After applying lipstick, make sure the edges are smooth, you don’t want the edges to be to precise, or the lipstick will look fake.
Start at the center.
When applying color, always start in the center and move out. Never start at the corners, you risk looking clownish.
Don’t over do it.
Distribute color by pursing your lips together, instead of applying all over and then blending.
Dab and blot with a tissue to soften the look.
Love and kisses,
