Minimise the risk of melting make-up slipping and sliding around by opting for sheer colour formulations for lips and cheeks that apply easily and tint the skin, which means that even after the initial application has worn off, a pretty gelato hue remains.
Liquid skin tints are best applied and blended with the fingers, working quickly to ensure the finish is softly diffused, without any obvious lines. Press across lips gently, then use any excess to colour cheeks for an easy, cohesive look.
If you’re on the move, a soft colour that keeps lips smooth and shiny without requiring constant surveillance makes life easier. Luckily there are plenty of new options in on-trend colours. Those with added SPF will help protect the sensitive lip area, where UV damage can contribute to border softening and creases forming.
