Nothing ages you like wrinkles around your lips but is it necessary to pay for expensive and painful lip fillers to minimise the fine lines around our mouth? Take a look at these makeup tips that can make lip wrinkles less noticeable.
Moisturise your lips
When applying your moisturiser, be sure to swipe a little cream over lips. If they are really dry, be sure to exfoliate your lips and apply a little lip balm. The moisture will immediately hydrate and soften your lips, making creases and fine lines around your mouth less noticeable.
Conceal the evidence
While applying your makeup, dot a little concealer or lip primer along the edges of your lips. This will fill in the fine lines and prevent your lipstick from bleeding into the little wrinkles. By putting a small amount of concealer on your lips, you will also help your lipstick last longer by doubling as a primer.
Define your lips
Using a lip pencil in the same or lighter colour as your lipstick. Using a lip pencil can define your lips and make them look fullier and shapelier. Once you’ve defined your lips, colour them in with the lip liner to help the lipstick adhere better and last longer. We recommend Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in place lip pencil.
Choose a Softer Colour Lipstick
According to Author Charla Krupp of How Not To Look Old, Pink is the only shade of lipstick worth wearing for more mature ladies. Angelina Jolie who has the most famous pout in the world and whose lips are most requested in cosmetic surgeons’ offices is most often seen wearing a light, glossy pink lipstick. Krupp believes the reason for Angelina Jolie choosing pretty pink lipsticks is simply, dark lipsticks make you look old.
Applying your lipstick
Choose a creamy satin lipstick over a lip gloss. If your lipstick is too glossy, it can bleed into the wrinkles or highlight them when your upper lip catches the light. Also, stay away from matte lipsticks that leave your lips dry and cracked. We recommend you try Estee Lauder All Day Lipstick
