Lipstick always looks best when your lips are nice and smooth. To keep your lips smooth exfoliate them and always wear some type of lip balm when not wearing lipstick.
Start by applying lip liner to define the shape of your lips and make them larger. By the way you can use it to make your lips look smaller too. Make sure your lip pencil is nice and sharp so as to create a very narrow line.
Outline your lips with the liner then fill in between with your lipstick. The liner will also stop your lipstick from bleeding through. Never draw fake lips, always stay within the natural lines of your lips.
Start at the v in your lips with short strokes then outline the rest of your lips then fill with your lip liner. Now apply your lipstick, blot, then reapply. If you want your lips to look fuller you need to apply a lighter shade in the center of your lips.
A matte lipstick will last longer than any other type of lipstick but it is drying. A gloss lipstick will make your lips look fuller. Sheer lipstick doesnít last very long at all.
Neutral shades will match everything while a medium color will make your lips look bigger. The moisture the lipstick the more likely it is to bleed.
When buying lip balms makes sure they have SPF protection. Some lipsticks also have SPF protection. Itís a good idea to use it all the time if possible.
