The Luscious Lips of Your Dreams

Women love to wear lipstick! It has been part of ancient rituals of beautification…
Obviously just a dash of lipstick adds so much glamour to the look and glow to the face. Lipstick should be of the right color and applied properly without smudges or embarrassing teeth stains. Lipstick doesn’t last long throughout the day, especially when we eat and drink while wearing it. What can we do? Here are a few tips on how to choose, preserve and make lipstick last longer.
1. While buying lipstick never use the tester on your lips. It is very unhygienic. Apply the tester on fingertips. This is a better option than the back of your hand as it closer to the natural color of your lips.
2. Line your lips whenever you use lipstick. Without lipstick your lips will look soft and less defined and your lipstick will appear smudged. 
3. Apply lip liner first. If your apply lipstick first and then try to apply lip liner you will not be able to see the natural line of your lips.
4. Use your lip liner as a base for your lipstick. This will ensure that lipstick lasts longer. While using light lipstick, use nude liner. Then apply lipstick on top of it.

5. If you have plump lips, apply lip liner just outside your natural lip line.
6. To keep gloss on for longer first fill your lips with lip liner and then apply gloss on it. The gloss has something to stick to and therefore lasts longer.
7. To keep lipstick off your teeth, once your have applied lipstick, put your index finger into your mouth and pull it out. The extra lipstick will come off on your finger.
8. Try and avoid orange and brown shades of lipstick as they make your teeth appear yellow.
9. Lipstick can be used as blush, but do not use the blush as lipstick.
10. Older women should avoid gloss or matt lipstick and stick to creamy lipstick.

11. If your lipstick has broken, the just light a match under the broken part of a while, when the lipstick melts a little then put it back on the base. Then swivel down the lipstick and put it in the fridge, uncovered for about 5 minutes.
12. If your favourite lipstick is running out, scrape out the last bits with an orange stick and mix it with lip-gloss to use it.
13. To prevent lipstick from sticking to the glass you are drinking from, discreetly put your tongue against it and lick the edge of the glass before touching your lips to it.
14. If you do not like a shade of lipstick, do not throw it out. Just mix it with other shades of lipstick and create your own shade.
15. Store lipstick in the fridge, it will last longer.
Stay beautiful!
