So — we are having our e-pics taken on Friday (YAY!) and I of course want to look awesome. This invovles wearing my favorite lipstick but I’m afraid that during all the smooching we will inevitably do, the lipstick will be all over HIM, making for some not so cute pics!
Does anyone have any tips or tricks for keeping lipstick on lips and off of noses/cheeks/man’s lips?

I don’t know if it works, because I’ve never personally tried it myself, but I read that if you line your entire lips (not just the edges) with lip liner in a shade similar to your lipstick, apply your lipstick, and then dust your lips with loose powder through a single ply of facial tissue to set the color, it works. I have my e-session this Sunday, so good luck and let us know how it goes!

This suggestion would be if you have time to look around a bit. You could check your drugstore’s Loreal section, for their Infallible lip color. It’s seriously really good stuff–not nearly as drying as most long-wearing formulas. I wore it for my wedding, and it didn’t transfer at ALL (Mrs Flamingo also wore the Infallible gloss for her wedding and wrote a post about it). For an even softer (yet long-wearing), smooth product, check MAC. They have a ton of colors to choose from, and it’s likely you’ll find one very similar to your favorite shade.
