Attain hot lips; follow the basic instructions in using lipstick and lip glosses for your lip nature
Attain perfect lip line:
After applying lipstick, put a bit of foundation on a concealer brush and follow around your lip line, erasing any blur.
When to use lip stains:
Only use lip stains when your lips are perfectly smooth and you don't have lines around the mouth. To get smooth lips, buff lips with a toothbrush dipped in a little water and sugar. Never rub too hard and always follow with a light balm before the stain.
Gloss without the goop:
Apply a great lipstick and then touch lightly a bit of gloss only on the inside of the fleshy part of the lower lip. All the shine, none of the mess.
For high drama:
After applying lipstick or gloss, put a touch of white sheer shimmer powder on the dip of the upper lip and right below the lower lip. Perfect for evening glance.
To get that perfect red lip, evenly apply a pale flesh colored lip liner. Then rub a red lip stain on the lips. Follow with a moisturizing red lipstick. Dry formulas look cakey; super glossy ones slip right off. Avoid red lip-gloss as it gets messy fast.
Avoid wearing dark colors; they make lips look smaller. Do not draw on a big lip with lip liner. Instead choose light or bright shades of lipstick or gloss with shimmer that catches the light for an amplifying effect.
Stay away from glossing the whole lip. Apply a little in the center on top and bottom, and then blend with your fingertip across the lips for shine that doesn't overwhelm your face.
Brush teeth with a little baking soda. Then choose lip colors in cool tones for an icy-white smile.
Never chooses a lip liner darker than your lipstick. If you like to use liner on the whole lip, use a balm first to avoid chunky, uneven, dry color.
Line the lips with a pale flesh colored lip liner then fill with a moisture-rich lipstick with staying power. Avoid glosses as they tend to run.
