Great lips start w/ "great lips"
mean that you have to have the perfect shape, size or colour. Lipcare
and a few handy hints are all you need. Arm yourself w/ your lipkit
essentials: a babys toothbrush, the best lip balm you can
find, your fav lip pencil and lippie, and a mirror.
To keep your lips soft and smooth apply a moisturising lip balm
and gently brush 2-3 times a week. By using a soft brush (like a
babys toothbrush) in circular movements, you exfoliate the
dead skin off leaving your lips flake free and feeling soft. Finish
with another application of your lip balm. Use your balm each morning
(esp one that contains 15+SPF) and night.
For a natural day-look apply a tinted lip balm or a moisturising
lip tint for a hint of lite-glossy colour.
the most accurate line, the best results are achieved when you use
a sharp pencil.
To enhance your lip
shape, draw the curve of your line from the centre of your arch
to the outer corner this creates a fuller lip look and creates
a flattering lip shape all-in-one.

lipbrush is by far the best way to ensure smooth, fuss-free lips.

of your lips for extra lipstick-grip.

..aaaarrrrggg! Now this may sound a little
weird, but it works to stop this unsightly wearing of lipstick.
Make your lips into the whistle shape and pop your
finger in then out this removes the excess lippie that
normally ends up on your teeth!
- Lip sealants are
fabulous, but they tend to tingle quite a bit due
to the alcohol factor (that helps to set the lipstick), so if
you have dry or sensitive lips it is wise to avoid them til
your lips are not feeling this way (they may aggravate the situation).
- When you want to
play w/ a "new lip look" try using foundation and powder
on your lips before you draw in your hip new shape.
Give lots of lip action,
and Ill catch you next time for some more hip lip movement!
