The little lines around your mouth that cause lipstick bleeding can be so embarrassing. This faux pas can make you look old and well, just not good.
The best way to combat the dreaded bleeding lipstick is to prep the lip area with a filling product. This product contains a formula that reduces dryness and minimizes bleeding and feathering. Xtend does not eliminate the lines themselves, but it will help fill them in so there isn’t a place for lip color to run.
I have a favorite trick to add to lip filling products. This step assures that your lipstick will stay where you apply it. Pat a little concealer over the filler onto your entire lip. Place a separated tissue to your lip and apply a little powder on a brush through the tissue onto the lip. Line and fill in the lips with lip liner and lip color. Repeat the tissue blotting step and then apply a small amount of gloss to the center of your lips only.
If you simply wear a sheer wash of color, this product is for you. This liner is clear, so it goes with every color of gloss or lipstick. This Secret Lip Liner is a temporary filler which helps to stop the bleeding and feathering. Don’t be afraid to apply liberally to the outer edges of your actual lip line.
Runaway lip color can also fade quickly. Guerlain Kiss Kiss Liplift is a primer and a treatment that smooths and prepares the lip for continuous lip color. Keeping your lips hydrated is key to having your lip color appear soft and supple.
Adding a little extra prep time into one of the world’s oldest rituals will give you the confidence that you are putting your best lip forward this fall.
