For a Dinner Party
The best way to make lipstick stay put through a meal is to layer your lip products. Lip primers are a good place to start since they prevent feathering and fading. Clinique's All about Lips is a lip primer that comes in a handy pump dispenser and moisturizes in addition to keeping lip color in place. Next, follow these steps:
- Use a lipliner to fill in your lips. Try Prescriptives Lip Coloring Pencil in Wine or your favorite shade. Lipliner will act as a base color and primer for your lipstick. It will last long after your lipstick.
- Apply a matte or long-wearing lipstick such as MAC’s Rebel lipstick, lip stains by Clinique or Reveon or LORAC's red Catherine.
- After your meal, touch up with a lipgloss to enliven your lips. Try Revlon's Color Stay LipShine in Torch or LORAC's Lip Gloss in Luscious.
Ten Steps To a Home Facial - AT SOMETIME or the other you feel like putting your feet up and relaxing completely. You look at yourself in the mirror and discover that the glow is missing. It is drab and dull and just doesn't glow. No amount of makeup seems to improve it. That is when your skin is crying out for a facial. But you don't have to make an appointment and spend hours at a salon when you can do it all in the privacy of your own home.
The first step is to relax totally. Wear a comfortable outfit leaving the neck and shoulders bare. Tie your hair up and away from the forehead.
