Lipstick Tips!

Create Fuller Lips -  If you're tired of having thin, pursed puckers, extend your lip line using a neutral-toned lip liner. Then apply lipstick over top. Be careful though — don't extend your lip line too much.

Keep lipstick lasting longer - Try holding a tissue over your lips and applying a light layer of translucent powder. The powder will absorb the excess oils in the lipstick and the tissue provides a barrier to keep some of the natural shine. Keep lips plump and moisturized - Few things draw attention to wrinkles like bleeding lip color. This happens because lipstick is a cream and it tends to slip into any low spaces -- including the lines around your lips. To keep color from traveling, use moisturizer, then coat the lips with foundation before applying lipstick.

If you are going Red:
  • If you have light skin, go with a red shade that has a cool blue base.  It will enhance your rosy complexion.
  • If your skin is dark, make sure your red has a touch of brown to highlight the warm caramel hints in your skin.
  • For those who have a medium skin tone, try an orangey-red shade that will reflect well with the yellow undertones in your skin.
Here's a little application tip for red lipstick newbies:  paint on the color with a lip brush.  It helps you control the amount of color you're using so your look is more subtle.  Just dab the brush on to the tip of your lipstick.  Lightly sweep on your lips, working from the center out.


  1. Great tips for my lips. My lips are thin and I will try your comments above.

  2. I really appreciate your tips about lipstick shades. I always pick a bit too dark.

  3. Thanks for the tips...I'm going to try the moisturizer before lipstick tip!


We love to hear from you!
