Perfect your skin
When wearing a bold lip you will find this enhances any redness or unevenness within your skin. You may want to up the coverage of your foundation or apply a little more base than usual.
Opt for bright eyes
I prefer to play down my eye makeup with minimal drama staying clear of smokey eyes. I love the look of pairing a bold lip with bare lids only mascara or a wash of sparkle shadow for a brighter eyed finish.
Prep and Plump
This is key to any lipstick looking its best, but in particular, a bold! For the smoothest most long wearing application be sure to exfoliate your lips. You can do this with a facial scrub or even get yourself a cheap toothbrush to use to buff away any flakiness. Once your lips are smooth smother them in lip balm. Its best to do your prep of an evening so your lips have time to drink up the moisture from the balm ready for a smooth application in the morning. Exfoliated, hydrated lips instantly creates a fuller looking pout.
