When you wear bright and colourful lipstick, it's a good idea to remember good lipstick etiquette. Even though I always blot with a tissue after applying my lippie, I know marks can be left behind so I try to drink out of disposable cups or if it is a water or wine glass at home, it goes straight in the dishwasher. If I'm having vinos with friends, I just use the same glass (after a light rinse) if we do the switch from white to red.
I also carry a handbag sized mirror with me everywhere to check for damage and for sneaky re-applications in the bathroom when I am out and about. I also have honest friends who will let me know if I have broccoli in my teeth, faded lipstick or runny mascara. This is nice because there is nothing worse than having a pen stain on your face (it happens) and no one comments on it until you see it in the mirror.
30 Days of lippy with flying colours. I store my lip products in the lid of an old Glossybox and it's perfect because they are all in one place and I can pick up my colour of the day very easily. I plan on organising this by colour and label one day and it will be even more fabulous then.
