Tips for Perfect Bold Lips

Remember how I did a post on The Best Drugstore Lipsticks? Well a lot of you have reported back that the Fifth Avenue Fuchsia is rocking your world like it’s rocking mine in that ridiculous picture above.

But here’s the thing, I’m actually really crappy at applying makeup, doing my hair. Stuff like that. I need a lot of coaching. That’s why I’ve enlisted the help of my make-up genius friend Arleene Taylor from My Heartistry.

Arleene is a CRAZY talented make-up artist and stylist. What blows my mind is how she can take one glance at a trend or make-up style, and then in clear, concise words explain how to recreate that look. I mean, that’s a serious skill! Anyway, to help us all wear our bold lipstick just a little better, Arleene was sweet enough to send me these tips!


Happy smooching lovers.

    Now the question is… what lip liner will match 5th Avenue Fuchsia??

    Great tutorial. Applying dramatic lipstick makes me nervous, so this is helpful!!
