Too many ladies aren’t wearing red lipstick because it’s overwhelming to “deal” with. It can be a tedious application, and can get sloppy is not taken seriously.
So I give you… MY TIPS:
I’m a huge fan of fully covering my lips with my foundation FIRST, then applying powder onto them and finally applying the red lipstick. This fills the creases on your lips where excess lipstick tries to gather, and bleed from.
LipLINER. This is no joke. Even if your liner is the same color, it creates an outline and helps prevent bleeding! Keep that puppy SHARP too! A dull liner doesn’t create a crisp clean line.
Carefully lick the rim of your wine glass before sipping! Be sneaky or you’ll just look odd. The moisture creates a barrier and prevents lip color transfer!
Reapply, and blot. A trick from my Gram, and seriously necessary.
When we spend half a paycheck on good hair color, we use color safe products to prevent fading. A good eye cream can be as expensive as a car payment, so why tug at the thin fragile skin around eyes to apply eyeliner?
Instead of pulling from the corner and stretching the skin, try sweeping the liner across the lash line without pulling the lid at all. Liquid eyeliner often glides across the skin easier than a pencil, preventing any tugging. Pulling at delicate skin every day for years, can lead to premature and hard to reverse wrinkles. Liquid eyeliner tends to look fresher all day as well, without smudging.
So go ahead, bat those lashlines, and mesmer-eyes him.
