Not everyone wears lipstick - it can be drying, awkward to keep on for an entire day and tough to pick out a shade that doesn't wash out the rest of our face! That's no excuse to back out of giving it a go however, especially when help is at hand!
Before doing anything, sort out your lips and by sort out we mean remove dry skin! Using a brand new disposable mascara wand, exfoliate your smackers. Just apply a think layer of lip balm to your lips beforehand to make the task easier...ahem.
Create different effects with make-up brushes: Using a concealer brush enables smooth application an a nice opaque look. For a diffused and stained look, apply your lipstick with a nice and fluffy eye make-up brush.
Prefer wearing a moisturising or shiny lipstick but can't get it to stay on? Straightaway after application, dust loose transluscent face powder over your lips through a tissue!
To avoid getting lipstick stuck to your teeth like Mean Girls' Caroline Kraft - Stick a clean finger (BEWARE GERMS!!!) into your mouth, wrap your lips around it and pull it out. Yes, it may feel dumb but there's no need to giggle - all the lipstick now on your finger wouldn't ended up on your chompers.
Need to be matchy matchy? Use your lipstick of choice as cheek colour - Use your finger to blend in the colour to your cheeks - just like you would with cream blush!
