How to stop lipstick feathering and bleeding

Isn’t it annoying when your freshly applied lipstick begins to run into the fine lines around your lips? This creates an unattractively fuzzy edge and draws attention to those lines.

Step 1

Apply lip prime to the edges of your lips to seal them and allow to dry, This creates the barrier needed to prevent feathering and bleeding. Note this is not a lip balm.

Step 2

Using a lipstick brush, apply your chosen lipstick colour to your lips starting with the edges and then filling in the whole lips. Blot and reapply to create a lasting colour.

Step 3

For a dash of extra glamour, apply lip gloss on top.

This can really help to make your lips look more full and luscious.
