Howtology: Gimmie Some Lip
Lip Color & Technique
So here's the low down on lip products. Choose lipstick colors that complement your skin, eyes, and hair color rather than your outfit. The exception: If you're wearing red, your lip color shouldn't clash. Choose warm colors with a little yellow in them, like neutral brown-reds, corals, or orangey browns to make your smile shine bright white. To color your lips, always use a pencil, and choose one that matches either your lipstick or your lips. Never use a pencil that leaves a visible, contrasting outline.
You can paint a perfect mouth that really lasts: Learn to use a lip brush, even though you probably won't take the time to use it every day. After using your lip pencil, brush on lipstick in the same way: outlining, then filling in.
To keep your lip gloss from bleeding, use it over pencil, and sparingly. Try a little clear gloss over a nude pencil. To turn your daytime mouth into a nighttime look, dab a shimmery gloss on the center of your bottom lip.
Types of Lip Color:
Lip Balm: Soothing and long lasting balms contain pure essential oils. Available in both jars or sticks.
Lip Crayon: Lip Crayons have a soft, smooth texture that condition as they add glamorous color. Wear alone or under Lip Gloss.
Lip Glaze: Glazes condition as they glide over lips and are scented with essential oils. Apply over lipstick for the glam factor or wear them alone for a natural glow.
Lip Gloss: Glosses contain a hint of colour and a delicious blend of essential oils. They condition as they shine leaving lips soft, glossy and extra glam.
Lipstick: Lip sticks are made with the smoothest, softest texture that will leave your lips feeling glamorous and extremely kissable. Opaque color.
