Top Tip for lips and lipstick application, getting you ready to make a statement with your lips.

~ Take a toothbrush and brush vaseline or lip balm into them. This will help exfoliate any dead skin, seal in moisture and act as a primer for lipstick.

~ Always use a brush when applying lipstick for a precise look.

~ After outlining your lips with a pencil, use it to colour in your lips, even if you are applying lipstick on top. This allows the colour to wear off uniformly so that you are not left with a hard outline after eating or drinking.

~ To keep lipstick off your teeth apply the colour with a brush and then blot. Put your finger horizontally between your lips and bite down, pulling your finger out to remove any lipstick that could rub off on your teeth.

~ Blot your lipstick with a tissue and then reapply to build up colour and durability.
