So according to Allure Magazine, lip stain is in. Whenever I’ve tried using it, though, it just looks like I applied lipstick hours beforehand, and it’s just wearing off!So here are some tips forgetting the most out of the new trend:
- Since stains can be drying (hence, the "half-worn-off lipstick" look), "smooth on a lip balm underneath," says Jessica Simpson’s make-up pro Mary Phillips.
- Prep your pout with a primer or lightly fill in witha lip pencil before applying lipstick."It creates a base so color stays on longer."
I love Sonia Kashuk’s Lip and Cheek Tint ($8 at Target) above.The color glides on smoothly, without giving you that "blood-red" look, and it lasts you a while without having to re-apply!Clear lip liner isa great choice because it holds everything to the contour of your lips–read about some great choices here!
