Whether you choose palest pink or striking scarlet, here are the quickest lip tips for a perfect finish every time.
Research suggests that we choose a lip color to reflect our moods - vibrant colors when we feel confident and want to be noticed, and paler shades when we feel introverted or even low.
Whether this is true or not, there is a cornucopia of products to color and protect your lips - lipsticks, glosses, lip powders - many enhanced with moisturizers and ultraviolet filters. Whichever color you choose, for whatever reason, remember these five tips:
Before applying lip color, prepare your lips with moisturizer or a specially designed lip primer, so that the color goes on evenly and lasts longer without feathering.
A lip brush gives a professional finish to your lips.
It is not essential to use lip pencil you can get a good finish with a primer and brush alone) but if you do want to use lip pencil, for instance with a very vibrant lipstick that needs a precise outline, it should be the same color as the lipstick. With more neutral shades, opt for a lipliner close to your natural lip color.
Avoid frosted lipsticks as they rarely enhance your teeth or the shape of your mouth.
Choose a lip color to pull a look together, but, remember, as a general rule, blue-toned (rather than orange-toned) reds and pinks and browns will make your teeth appear whiter.
Before going out in the evening or for a special highly polished finish it is worth taking time over applying your lipstick.
