Model your lips carefully! Use a deep clear red lipstick. You can make them wider, or shorter, fuller or thinner, to give your face better proportion. If they’re too heavy, use a medium or rose lip rouge to make them less noticeable. Always remove excess lipstick by pressing a piece of tissue between your lips.


Top Tip : Moisten your lips with your tongue just before having your picture taken. It makes even faded lipstick stand out.
