Tip #1:  When trying to choose the right shade of lipstick, it is best to test it on the back of your hands, they are usually a pretty close match to your lips.

Tip #2: Make your lipstick last longer, and look better by using a liner on your lips as a base. You can use a nude liner, if the lipstick you are using is lightly colored.

Tip #3: Use light lip liner with light lipstick and dark liner with dark lipstick. This means never use a dark liner with light lipstick. That is just plain tacky. 

Tip #4:  If you do not want your lipstick to get on your cup, glass or straw, then simply lick the lip of the glass before you touch your lips to it. Just be sure you do it discreetly.

Tip #5: To keep lipstick off your teeth, after you put your lipstick on, put your index finger in your mouth and pull it out. Any excess lipstick should get on your finger.

Tip #6: To make your teeth look not so yellow, choose lipstick with blue undertones, such as plum, pink, wine colors, etc. Blue tends to contrast with yellow.
