I used be a girl who only used vaselines, lip balms, chap sticks, or nude lipsticks. I tried the red lip once couple of years back, and that was a BIG NO NO. Probably cause i wasn’t used to wearing bright lipsticks.
With the trends this past year, I was like “WTH, let me try again” so I started picking up on BOLD LIPSTICKS and absolutely fell in love with them.
Things I do before smacking on the bold colors:
1) Prep your lips with Vaseline, lip balm etc and make sure you don’t have any dry patches or skin popping out.
2) Use a lip liner and line those babies. Why you ask?? well you don’t want to get the lipstick or lip gloss to feather.
I like to use the Maybelline Expert wear brow liner as a lip liner, because its nude and I don’t like the stain of a “lined” look when the lipstick is gone. DON’T DRAW but sketch. Start from the middle going outwards.
3) Apply the Lipstick/Lip Gloss starting from the middle to outward.
The MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquers are highly pigmented and the darn things don’t come off easily. Great for wearing longer period of time. I had the Velvet Lip Lacquer Reckless (Red) on during New year’s eve and through out the 9 hours, I retouched only once.
