Part Two: I'm continuing this week with ideas and tricks to make your cosmetic application easier.
Smoother lips: Lip pencils can redefine the lips and prevent lipstick from bleeding into the finer lip lines. First, use a camouflage lip liner around the outside edge of the lips; next use a lip pencil to cover the entire lips to make the lipstick last longer. Then touch the bottom middle lip (only) with lip balm or lip gloss. The bottom lip should visually look 1/3 larger than the top lip. Another boost for the wrinkles above the lips could be the use of a mattifying gel with silicone above and below the lip. All Rights Mattifying Gel can be found at Kohl's.
Lipstick enhancement: Lipstick colors need to balance with the color of the eyes directly, the skin tone and natural hair color. Lipstick needs to be as warm/cool or light/dark as the eyes. Just because a particular lipstick color is in fashion, be cautious. It must connect with your personal coloring, be supportive, and not dominant. The correct lipstick color (and you only need to have one or two lipsticks that are coordinated with your entire wardrobe) will make your eyes sparkle.
