Choosing The RIGHT Lipstick

Q. How do I choose the right lipstick? A. When choosing a lipstick think about texture and color. A single shade can look very different in different textures.

– Matte means dense color, no shine and very little moisture.
– Cream delivers strong color with moisture.
– Gloss is translucent color, moist and shiny.
– Stain looks very dark in the tube but goes on sheer.
– Frosted colors contain sparkly white and are generally more suited to youthful

that reads your lips and self-adjusts the creamy richness especially for you.
– Day-to-night wear, miraculous all day moisture and superior shine
that stays true are the benefits of Avon’s new My Lip Miracle Lip Color.

Q. How do I properly apply lipstick and lip liner? A. Lip liner is optional but if used, it should go on first. Use neutral or lipstick-matched lip liner. Using a liner that is darker than the lipstick will leave an outline when the lipstick fades.

– Starting at the center of the upper lip, draw a line to each outer corner,
following the edge of the natural lip line.

– Fill in color all over lips if they want extra holding power for their lipstick.

*Hint: Chill lip pencil in the refrigerator for a few minutes to make sharpening easier.

– Use a dusting of powder or bit of foundation beneath lipstick to maximize its
staying power. Either can dry lips, so tell your Customers to use a creamy
formula lipstick.

– Stretch your lips, and starting at the center of top or bottom, glide color to
corners. Blot, reapply and blot again for longer-lasting color.

* Hint: A lip brush gives the most precision in applying lipstick

Q. How do I minimize my lips? A. – Use deep, matte shades to make lips. Don’t use glosses and frosts.

– Line lips just inside the natural lip line with a freshly sharpened pencil that
matches the lipstick. Be sure to define all the way to each corner.

– Fill in lipstick with a lip brush.

* Hint: A thin dusting of powder over lipstick can help play down lips

Q. How do I make my lips look fuller?
A. – Don’t wear dark lip color. Glossy, pale, light-catching and white-tinged shades
make lips look fuller.

– Line lips at their outermost edge with a freshly sharpened neutral pencil or one
that matches the lipstick. Be sure to define lips from corner to corner.

– Fill in lips with lipstick using a lip brush. Apply a touch of a slightly lighter
frosted or opalescent shade in the center of your lips. This enhances fullness by
creating a light-catching contour.

– Add a sweep of gloss if lipstick is matte.
