More Lip and Blush Tip Reminders

You can never have enough hats, gloves, and shoes. A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.


Here are a few beauty tricks for long lipstick wear and how to apply blush. Start by using lip liner pencil and frame in around the natural line. Cover the edges all around your mouth with concealer, and blend well into the skin. Then use a sharpened lip pencil in a neutral color with a firm texture to draw inside your natural lip line.

Then just fill in the color with pencil or the lip color of your choice. Use the four-point method. Dot the tips of your top lips and the bottom directly below and draw a line outward to the corners. Follow with lipstick, using a lip brush for a more finished appearance and fuller coverage. Blot with tissue and repeat using lipstick from the tube, building the color for longer staying power.

Finish with a spot of gloss on the middle bottom lip and smack lips together for fuller looking lips. Do not try to have both attention getting getting lips and eyes at the same time. Go for one or the other. If your eyes are to be the focal point, then choose soft shades of lip color.
It's really hard to keep a dark lip color on if you're eating and drinking, no matter how good the brand.Just remember if you're eating anything even remotely greasy, it will take the color right off, just as if you were eating makeup remover. So if you're out at dinner or at a party, try to remember to blot your lips with a napkin or tissue as you're eating to keep color from smearing. You might try dusting a little loose powder on the edge of lips before going out for the night - it can increase color's staying power.


Definitely last. You do not want to apply too much as is usually common, nor do you want racing stripes! Using a crème or powder, blush in a shade that matches your natural color after a run. Apply powder with a blush brush, not the one they gave you included with the product but one that is properly shaped, textured and sized to do the job correctly!

Make a smile and apply at the apples of the cheeks and blend towards the temple. For crèmes, use your fingers and apply in a triangular fashion using the same rules. Do not use too much! Less is more. In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different. There are people who have money and people who are rich.
