We rounded up the best lipstick secrets we could find to ensure that your pout looks perfect, even in fall’s most dramatic colors!
1. Prep your pucker
Use a clean, damp wash cloth to exfoliate your lips, and then moisturize with a conditioning lip balm.
2. Color for your skin tone
To figure out if your skin tone is cool or warm, look at the veins on your wrist. Blue? Cool undertones. Greenish? Warm undertones. Those with a cool complexion should stick with brighter shades that pop. Warm complexion gals can pull off deeper shades like purple and berry.
Deeper shades for warm complexions and bright shades for cool complexions.
3. Line first
Thought lip liner was a thing of the past? Think again. Pick a shade that matches your skin to line the outer edge of your lips before putting on your lipstick. The liner will prevent the dark color from creeping.
