Seasons are changing and it’s time to consider some autumn lip shades.
Many of you have mentioned to me that Nars is your lipstick of choice…
Wearing a lipstick well can make all the difference… and as my mother always reminds me… “don’t go anywhere without lipstick… it’s like being undressed”…
Here Is The How
1. Exfoliate the lips with a damp flannel, and sparingly apply lip balm before applying the rest of the make up.
Dry or cracked lips will make application of lipstick more difficult and the end result won’t be as polished.
2. If using a bright or very dark shade, ensure the skin tone around the mouth is even using a concealer or tinted moisturiser.
This will enhance and make the colour pop.
3. Using a matching lip liner outline the lips to avoid bleeding and then fill in the entire lip with the pencil.
Filling the lips in with the pencil will ensure that the colour stays longer and avoids that washed out look after eating and drinking.
4. Using a lip brush, carefully apply the colour in long sweeping motions across the lip… With a tissue, blot the lips and reapply the colour once more.
This will also give the colour more staying power.
** To make a lip colour more matte, hold a thin tissue over the lips and brush with translucent powder. This will also increase the staying power of a creamier lipstick.
** With the more natural shades, lip liner is only necessary if you find the colour bleeds.
