Lipstick Beauty Tip

Many women steer clear of dark lipsticks because they seem hard to wear, but the right shade could make you look healthy and brighten your complexion.The Trick is in the Application: Intense colors look freshest when they are just dabbed on with the fingertips or with the very light touch of a lip brush to soften the edges.Since dark shades tend to clump around dry flakes, begin by exfoliating your lips with a damp cloth. Rinse and dry.

Apply clear balm such as Beyond Color Lip Exfoliator and let it set for 5 minutes.Warm the tip with your fingers to soften and apply lip liner pencil to the whole mouth, not just around the lip line. Apply lipstick such as Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick 15 with your finger. Blot and apply a second coat. You'll find 20 shades of Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick to choose from.
