Manners maketh a man but a lipstick maketh a woman!! Find out how you can attain sexy and sheer lips guaranteed to seduce!!

Firstly we all need to understand that lips also need protection even more so than our facial skin. As their protective layer known as stratum corneum is very thin so choose a non medicated stick like the Nivea Lip Care Daily Care and apply it daily to keep lips soft and supple. For serious flaking or soreness, look for products that contain camphor, menthol as both are soothers and always remember to apply lip balm underneath lipstick as it makes the lipstick easier to remove and cause less damage.


Some best tips to Sexy lips.

1. Here's the best bet to setting your lip colour. No matter what the texture of your lipstick is always apply lip balm first to soften and smoothen the skin. If your lips are chapped apply some Vaseline and softly rub your lips with a soft muslin cloth to remove dead skin leaving your lips looking healthier.

2. The first step to a fashionable mouth is to define your lipline, if you want to make your lips appear smaller use colours like dark berry or chocolate shades which make lips look thinner also apply the liner on the inner boundary of your natural line. On the contrary if you want a more fuller look recreate your lipline slightly above your natural line and use a sheeny or sheer moisturising lip stick in warm coal, rosy pink or a bronzed caramel tone. Make even more of your mouth by applying little gloss in the middle of your lower lip.

3. After a proper definition apply your lipstick with a lip brush this gives a more even and lasting look to the lipstick, then blot with a tissue. You can dust some powder through a single ply tissue to achieve a sophisticated matte look or reapply another coat of lipstick for intense colour.

4. If you always land up with lipstick on your teeth than simply put your index finger in your mouth, close your lips around it and slowly pull it out of your mouth. The residue will stick to your finger.

5. The new -look of glossy shimmering lips can be achieved easily by applying a gloss that matches your lipstick colour so it enhances the actual tone as well as add shine. Or think of updating a tired browny lipstick with a lick of shiny gold shimmer- it's instant sun-kissed splendor on your lips.

6. You can also choose a nude shade close to your own skin colouring and apply carefully with a brush all the way to the edges of the lipline and add a new dimension with a touch of sheer gloss for a striking effect for day and night.

7. You can also opt for one of the most versatile, classic and ageless colour red. By tapping your ring finger onto your red lipstick and apply them to your lips by dotting on the colour and then spreading it . Apply sheer gloss to add a touch of class. You can also decrease the voltage of red by applying a nude/natural lipstick as base colour.

Dry Lips Tips...

Q. I  am 20 yrs old and even  though I have never smoked, my lips are black. I am extremely worried over this. Please suggest a remedy. 

Sneha Agarwal, Siliguri

A. It is possible that the problem is hereditary. A very simple and easy way of reducing the problem is by massage the area with coconut oil mixed with glycerin and a little rose water. Massage this onto the lips two to three a day regularly  for a week and you  will see a difference.
