Get Kissable Lips
Make your pucker irresistible with these sexy-lip tips:
1. Keep 'em soft. Beat dryness and flaky skin by applying a non-medicated lip balm throughout the day. Wear it alone or under lipstick.
2. Plump up fine lines. As we age, our lips become thinner and develop fine lines. Try a lip-plumping lipstick primer to fill in lines before you apply color. Victoria's Secret makes a great one.
3. Give lipstick staying power. Lining and filling in lips with a lipliner pencil will make lipstick stay on longer. Pick a liner that's the same color, or at least the same tone, as your lipstick.
4. Fake fullness. If you'd like your lips to look fuller, carefully line lips right outside your natural lip line (don't take this too far, or it will look obvious). Fill in lips with liner, then apply color.
5.Stop lipstick bleed. If your lipstick bleeds into fine lines around your mouth, apply a lipstick sealant to keep the color in place. Look for She-Laq by Benefit Cosmetics.
