Apply make up in natural light (day light) whenever possible. Sit with your back to the window, this way you can spot any flaws and blend make up more perfectly. When day light is not available, see that the light falls directly on your face. So it is always desirable to have a bright light just above your dressing table.
Natural lip gloss
To have a gloss look lipstick there is no need to junk your old matte lipstick. Vaseline works well on the matte lipstick to give you a glossy finish. You may also apply gloss over your matte lipstick and get that glossy look that's in this season.
Care of listicks
Always keep your lipsticks and all make up pencils in the fridge, this prevents them from breaking. Matte lipsticks stay for a longer period of time as compared to gloss lipsticks
