Frequently Asked Questions & Answers from The Makeup Chic:
Why a lip stain first?
The beauty of wearing a lip stain under your favorite red lip allows you to eat, drink, and be merry without losing your perfectly puckered pout! And Wearing a pink lip stain under your red lipstick adds a unique and subtle layer of pop to your lips!
How can I clean up a my lips if they start to smudge and smear?
The best way that I’ve found to clean up an uneven pout is by using a baby wipe and a precision ended Q-tip. Cover one end of the Q-tip with a baby wipe and gently clean up by swiping the out-line of your lips. Re-line your lips if needed and you are ready for a Valentine’s night out!
