Vamp Lippy

Loving a vampy lip right now, especially with a very minimal eye and clean and fresh face.

Get the look:

3 Steps to a better lip:

1. Foundation is the first step in making it last. Just like eye shadow, lipstick has better staying power when its applied on top of a base. Prep your lips for color by very lightly coating them with concealer or foundation—or a primer made specifically for lipstick.

2. Exfoliate your lips before you apply that lip color. Just like the rest of your body, you need to exfoliate your lips of dead skin cells. Smoother and softer lips will create the perfect canvas for bright color—and there are a variety of multitasking products and scrubs to chose from on the market.

3. Lipliner should be used to keep lipstick from bleeding. The only thing worse than getting red lipstick on your teeth (and not knowing about it), is having it swiped across your face. Lining your lips with a similar color will not only help keep the pigment in the correct spot, but also can make your lips appear fuller and increase the staying-power of a tube of lipstick. Apply it in thin steady strokes around the perimeter and then continue to use the pencil to fill in your lips before applying your actual lip color.
