Some quick lips and lipstick tips:

Beauty Secrets for Lips

  • If you want to keep your lipstick from bleeding and looking terrible, try using a lip liner that closely matches the shade of your lipstick. Some people say that applying a layer of foundation to the lips first will help the lipstick stay in place.
  • If you have full lips, it is best to use colors such as brown, bronze or purple as they will enhance your lips without making them stand out badly. Full lips are something many women wish for, if you are lucky enough to have such, enjoy them!
  • If you have smaller lips, use lighter colored lipsticks, for darker colors tend to make smaller lips look even thinner.
    To make smaller lips look fuller, apply a bit of Vaseline or lip gloss to the middle part of your bottom lip, and this will help give an illusion of fullness to your lips.
  • To make fuller lips looks smaller, avoid shiny lipstick colors and opt for deep shades that blend.

    Experimenting with lips and lipstick is one of the easiest ways to enhance your beauty and draw attention to your overall face, not just your lips. Lips are one of the most popular body parts noticed when people are dating or mingling, eyes being another popular one.

    Suitable Colors of Lipstick

    The best thing to do when choosing lipstick colors is to first consider your hair color and skin color. This will enable you to choose lipstick shades that complement your natural hair and skin colors. Those women who have light blonde hair will look best in shades such as mauves, berries and wines. Golden blonde haired ladies will likely look best in peaches, corals, apricots and such hues. Blondes who are olive skinned look wonderful in warm peach or terracotta colored lipstick hues. Brunettes and redheads both are of optimal coloring to use cinnamons, terracottas and brownish colored reds.

    By taking the time to learn about lips and lipstick, you can figure out which shades of color look best on you and how they enhance your lips. Complementing your eyes, hair and skin is an important part of successful makeup use. When flattering colors are chosen wisely and applied expertly, the illusion is simply one of attraction and the makeup itself is hardly noticeable. This is the goal women have when using makeup-to enhance and attract.
