Take olive oil and add a pinch of brown sugar. Dab on your lips and let sit for a minute. Then take a wet wash cloth, or use your finger, and gently rub it back and forth. Rinse with water. Apply a lip balm or a moisturizing lipstick afterwards.
To keep dark lipstick from bleeding, try one of these two methods:
Lightly powder lips with your face powder, then apply lipstick with a brush.
Use a reverse lip liner; a colorless waxy lip pencil that keeps lipstick from bleeding. Outline your lips and then fill in with lipstick. The wax consistency creates an invisible barrier to keep lipstick from bleeding into fine lines. I use Benefit’s D’finer D’liner but there are plenty of others to try.
Now that your lips are pucker perfect, wear those bright colors with confidence!
