      Use a tinted lip balm for a touch of everyday color. If your lips are in good condition, it doesn't take much makeup to make them look beautiful and healthy. If you're not the type who likes to wear layers of color on your lips, try a simple tinted lip balm to add a hint of luster. Tinted lip balm comes in any color you want, or you can make your own in exactly the color you want. Here's how to do it:
      • Make a simple balm by melting together 2 tablespoons coconut oil and 1 tablespoon beeswax.
      • Cut off a small piece of your favorite lipstick and stir it in while the mixture is still hot. Add as much or as little as you want to tint your lip balm.
      • Pour the balm into a clean lip balm jar and allow it to cool before using.

      Learn how to choose lip color that complements your complexion. If you have no qualms about using bold color to make your lips look great, it's important to know how to choose the right shades to match your complexion. Every skin tone can be classified as warm, cool, or neutral. Learn more about your skin "temperature" to choose the right lipstick. Please or Register to view links
      • If your coloring looks best in earth tones, warm yellows and reds, and gold jewelry, your skin is warm. Choose lipstick with warm undertones, like browns, orange-reds, coral pinks, and creamy neutrals.
      • If you tend to look best in jewel tones, navy blue, and silver jewelry, your skin is cool. Choose lipstick with cool undertones, like plums, cherry reds, lavender pinks, and pearly neutrals.

      Apply lipstick like a makeup artist. Make sure your lips are conditioned before you apply lipstick; otherwise it will flake off, leaving your lips looking mottled. Apply lipstick to your bottom lip, making sure you don't go outside your natural lip line. Rub your lips together to apply lipstick to your top lip. Dot more lipstick on your top and bottom lips to fill in any gaps. Please or Register to view links
      • Blotting your lips on a tissue will help set your lipstick and prevent it from getting on your teeth and cups you might drink from throughout the day.
      • If you want your lipstick to last all day without wearing off, use a lip primer on your lips before applying color.

      Enhance the shape of your lips using liner. Liner isn't mandatory for everyday use, but for days when you want your lips to really turn heads, it's indispensable. Choose liner in a color that matches the lip color you want to use. Use it to carefully outline the shape of your lips before you apply lipstick. The liner will define the shape of your mouth and keep your lip color from "bleeding."
      • You can also use liner to change the shape of your lips. Trace the liner slightly above or below your natural lip line to make your lips look larger. When you fill in your lips with color, no one will be able to tell the difference.
      • You can create a slight ombre effect by using liner a shade darker or lighter than the lip shade you're using.

      Add a layer of gloss to make your lips pop. After applying color, you might want to add a layer of clear gloss to make your lips stand out even more. Gloss adds plenty of shine and also helps keep your lipstick in place. Choose a clear gloss or one with a little shimmer depending on the look you're going for.
      • Gloss is completely optional, especially if you prefer your lips to look matte instead of shiny.
      • Coconut oil works well as a cheap homemade lip gloss.
