Top tips for strong and bold lips

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - BEAUTY -

1. Us­ing a tooth­brush, ex­fo­li­ate the lips — this will make a smoother ap­pli­ca­tion for your lip­stick to at­tach to.

2. Ap­ply a lip balm while you com­plete your make-up. This will mois­turise the lips and leave them in the per­fect con­di­tion for ap­pli­ca­tion, then blot off be­fore you ap­ply your lip liner to avoid any prod­uct bleed­ing.

3. For those who find that red lip­stick bleeds around the lips, mas­sage in a lit­tle Su­per Matte An­tishine (£13.25). This is a mat­ti­fy­ing primer prod­uct that’s nor­mally in­tended for use on the face, but it’s per­fect to en­sure your lip colour does not bleed or feather.

4. Use a lip liner to cre­ate your per­fect lip out­line. Blend the edges to­wards the cen­tre of the lip slightly, and pinch the cor­ners and edges for an eas­ier blend.

5. For longevity, a matte lip­stick will al­ways be best, but if you suf­fer from dry lips, use a cream lip­stick, blot off and reap­ply for ex­tra longevity.
