From lipsticks to liners, here's how to perfectly plump up your pout
With Valentine's Day coming around quickly it's time to pull out your best lipstick game. Below are some tips n' tricks that'll teach you just how to plump up your lips along with the best lipsticks to make Cupid happy on Valentine's Day date night. Or to treat yourself to a glam night for one!
Avoiding the teeth
One of the most embarrassing things a girl can experience is getting her *gorg* pink lipstick on her teeth during Valentine's day dinner with the BF or the GF. To avoid this, it's extra important to blot your lips before you leave for your date, and if you want to be super careful...do it again, but with a tissue.
Staying in the lines
An important thing to do when you're applying lipstick is to open your mouth and color in the lines just like you would with a coloring book. This will avoid any extra lipstick getting on your face that could possibly mess up the shape of your lips.
Finding the right color
There's an *infinite* amount of shades out there when it comes to lipsticks. Something to look out for when hunting for the right shade is the hue your skin has. This is because the undertones of your skin tend to go better with specific lip shades. Bright red shades tend to match nicely with warm undertones, whereas the best lipsticks for cool undertones are ones with blue and purple undertones. There are so many colors out there, so if you're ever feeling bold, try experimenting with other colors and do what makes you feel best!
