From Lips To Tips
A perfect pout is complemented by beautifully kept nails. Here are some make-up tips for your lips and nails for you to stay beauteous, always!
For your pout:
- Prime your lips by exfoliating with some Vaseline and a toothbrush – then apply a good lip balm with enough SPF in it. Wait for the balm to get absorbed and wipe off.
- Outline the lips with a lip liner the colour of your lips, or of the lipstick. Now dab a bit of foundation on your finger tip and apply to your lips.
- Apply a thin layer of lipstick with a brush – the thinner the layer, the better hold and less smearing. You can now dab on some face powder to make the lipstick hold a bit longer.
- Now apply another layer of lipstick. Kiss a tissue to remove any extra pigment from your lips. Voila, luscious “non-transferable” lips!
For your tips:
- Start with clean, bare nails with no remnants of old polish.
- Paint a layer of bare polish on the nails and let it dry.
- Now using the colour of your choice, paint a strip right in the middle of your nail, and then on either side.
- Once dry, repeat to darken the colour. Again, when dry, use a clear top coat to seal in the colour.
- To fix those annoying lines of polish next to your cuticles, take a little makeup brush and dip the end in nail polish remover. Else, Put Vaseline around your nail and cuticles before painting. The Vaseline will make any nail polish on your skin be wiped off easily.
