Our Top 6 Must-Remember Tips About Lipstick


One of the top items in a woman’s beauty arsenal is lipstick.

Whether you’re the vampy red lipstick-wearing type or if you prefer subtler shades like coral, pink or light red, it pays to familiarize yourself with the basics of wearing lipstick.

Take a look at our top 6 must-remember tips:

1. The shade of your gums is the pink shade that perfectly matches your lips!

It’s a challenge for most women to find their perfect lipstick shade but there’s a nifty technique that you can use. To determine which shade is most suited for your complexion, simply smile and look closely at the color of your gums.

The same shade of lipstick will best match your complexion – anything lighter or darker is considered an unflattering shade.

2. There are techniques that you can use to make lipstick last longer

You don’t want to attend an event where you’re wearing a dark red lipstick during your entrance, only to have it fade after you sipped a couple of drinks. To make the shade last longer, fill the entire lip with neutral lip pencil before applying the lipstick.
