Keep Your Red Lipstick from Bleeding
Follow this simple three-step process from Rick DiCecca, Estée Lauder's global makeup stylist. First, swipe on a lip balm with shea butter (like Aveeno Lip Conditioner, $4, or Nivea A Kiss of Moisture, $3; drugstores). Then apply a dab of foundation and blend with your fingers all over lips. This evens out existing lines and creates a smooth surface for lip liner. Use a liner with a waxy formula (like Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Pencil, $19; EsteeLauder.com) and follow your natural lipline. Lipstick pigments will adhere to the wax, creating a barrier that will stop the color from bleeding. — Alessandra Foresto
