Lips Of An Angel.

Ever dreamed of achieving those luscious lips that lady in the magazine possesses, and you couldn't? Read through this, and you'll see just how possible for you to have them.

- To get a totally different lipstick colour, mix two more colours of lipgloss or lipstick. Be light on the application so that the mixture doesn't become too thick and run over.

- To obtain a perfect application, use a lip brush to apply any lip product. You get more definition and precision.

- For a longer lasting lip color, apply sheer layer of foundation on lips, dust powder on them and then color them. This also helps lipstick not to change its color on dark lips.

- Choose a lip liner close to lipstick color to define the shape of lips.

- To make your lips look thicker, make the outline just outside your natural lip line while for thinner lip look, place the outline just inside the natural lip line.

- Now fill the defined shape with lipstick using a brush and blend the color well with the outline until the latter is not noticeable.

- Lipsticks can be glossy, matte, creamy or frost ones. Choose the one that suits you and do not make the skin on lip look dried and chipped.

- Apply two coats of lipstick for longer durability. After the first coat, press the lips on a tissue paper and then apply the other coat.

- Outlining of the lips prevents lip color bleeding.

- Lip-gloss can be applied on lipstick or used alone for a nude look.

- Gloss makes lips appear fuller, so women with thicker lips should avoid using it.

For that natural look.

A light even dusting of loose powder sets foundation and concealer, giving your face a velvety, more natural finish. It also provides smooth blending for any eye makeup or blush to follow.

1. Dip a puff or powder brush in loose powder. Shake off excess to avoid uneven distribution, then apply powder over entire face and neck.
2. To maintain a flawless finish throughout the day, apply pressed powder using a sponge or clean powder brush.

Tip: Face powder can be used alone, over foundation or over your moisturizer for a natural, sheer, no-shine look.

Tip: For the closest color match, choose a powder shade that is 3 shades lighter than your foundation.

Tip: If you are over the age of 30, avoid powdering under the eyes as it can make fine lines and wrinkles appear more obvious.

Tip: Facial oil-blotting sheets help to remove excess oil and shine without disturbing your makeup. Carry them with you everywhere you go
