Tip– When applying foundation continue over the lips to provide a base for lip liner and lipstick.
Tip– If your lipstick smells rancid, it is! Want it to last longer? Place it in the fridge.
Tip- Wrong lipstick shades can age you, steer clear of brown lipstick shades. Avoid matte lipstick as they tend to settle into your lip lines. Instead, try creamier lipsticks or glosses. Glosses are especially youthful and make your lips appear “pouty”.
