How to Achieve Fabulous Looking Lips

How to Achieve Fabulous Looking Lips
Three ways to help you create fabulous looking lips, including the technique used by the professionals.




1. The easy, natural-looking, conditioning way


Coloured lip balm - lippy colour and conditioning all in one.




2. The long-lasting, no-touch-ups way


Lipstick that you apply at the beginning of the day and that’s it - smashing lips all day.  These can be drying, so you may like to touch up with a lip-gloss or lip balm to keep them conditioned.


Revlon is famous for its ColorStay™ lipstick – and now the new ColorStay Ultimate Suede™ Lipstick - they say you can kiss goodbye to touch ups. It’s the perfect lipstick if you want to try wearing your perfect shade of red as it won’t wear off, feather or bleed, or rub - and you won’t eat it off!



3. The pro way


1)     Brush your lips with a wet face cloth to remove any dry skin.

2)     Add your foundation to provide a good base.

3)     Dust the lips with a layer of translucent powder. Pat dry with

        a tissue to remove any excess.

4)     Outline your lips with a lip liner.  You can go slightly outside

        the lines to make thin lips appear bigger, just don’t over do it.

        The lip liner should be a slightly darker shade than your lipstick.

5)     Fill in the rest of your lips with the lip liner. This is optional,

        but if you don't and your lipstick wears off, you may end up

        just wearing an outline!

6)     Apply your lipstick using a brush.

7)     Kiss a dry tissue to remove excess lipstick.

8)     Re-apply a second layer of lipstick (with a brush) for lasting colour.

Oh, and don’t forget the rule about lips or eyes - put your efforts into one or the other. You can’t have both otherwise they’ll be fighting for attention and no one wins!



If all else fails, you could try this!!!!
