Lip Primers to the rescue or not? hehe
Soo like i told you today im going to talk about Lip Primers.You might ask ,do i really need one?
Well first what it does is its applied under your lipstick or lipliner or gloss to help make it last longer,reduce lip dryness,and create an even look to the colour.This seems to be the best one around if you want to give it a whirl- URBAN DECAY LIP PRIMER POTION
This is what is said about it- keeps lip color from fading or feathering with SPF 15 This invisible primer lays a silky foundation for your favorite lipstick or gloss. You'll find color is truer, applies smoother, and lasts longer with this easy-glide formula that does not have the drying effect often associated with long-lasting lip color.What else you need to know:A roll-up tube and slanted bullet make for precise, easy application.
IT can be found at sephora for about $20.00 Might be a good investment if u wear lipstick a lot!
Now personally as a makeup artist i dont usually use a primer,i find that putting on a light neutral lip liner all over the lips before applying lipstick or gloss helps to give it a good base and makes the color stay on longer,also make sure you exfolliate your lips weekly just like you would your face they can get dry. Use an old toothbrush and gently brush off the dead skin.Also make sure to keep them moisturized with a good lip balm like this Lush lip balm,im currenlty using this and love the smell!!Im sure if you have been reading my blogs you know i love LUSH!:)Retails at LUSH for $6.95 and i find it last a long long time!
