3) Bold is Gold
It is no wonder dark or bright lipstick has become associated with terror and fear – who isn’t terrified of smudged and messy lips when going bold? There is few things more stressful than donning a dark lip – but even fewer things more glamorous! We have can assure you that there is nothing scary about bold lips if you wear them right! Simply follow these simple rules for super long lasting, smudge-free lip colour: Pencil in all of your lips with a good quality lip pencil that matches the colour of your chosen lipstick (when in doubt go for slightly darker!), apply 2 layers of lip colour on top of it and carefully remove excess colour by kissing a tissue. Finish off the look with Lipstick sealer and let dry fully – No stains, no worries!
