    International Makeup Artist Amanda Bell for Pixi talks about top summer makeup tips. This video will focus on nude, glossy lips that last.

    Amanda Bell: Hi! My name is Amanda Bell and I am the International Make-Up Artist from Pixi and this is my model today Megan. What we're actually going to talk about is essential summer beauty. So one of the things which is really important for summer is how do you keep your lipstick on for longer how to make your lips last longer. I have got a couple of different options here. The first thing is a stain.

    Now this is water based stain that you use directly on to nude lips and the color that I would select for Megan is actually called purity, it's a very soft nude color. Because it's a water-based stain it's felt-tip so your literally just slightly paint it on and then it stains lips and it lasts for about to 8 hours. One of the things which I love about this particular product is the fact that it's got, almost like, a fiber tip like a sharp pin so you can kind of get this precise line and then blur it down so you get this very very soft hint of color across the whole of the lip. It's a great base to use so that you can put any thing you want over the top. So I am going to use a little bit of Gorgeous lip gloss so we've got just enough color there. So the lip gloss will just make Megan's lips look very, very full and reflect the light for just the right hint of color, there we go. The other alternative would be a very sophisticated look which is the lip liner with lipstick. So what you would do with that is that you would line the lips fill the lips in with the lip liner and then pop a little bit of the lipstick on top. And you'll find that the lining base underneath adheres to the lips and gives something for the lipstick to actually adhere to and last for longer.

    So there you go perfect summer and all year around lips which last a long long time. So the next thing we are going to talk about is a multipurpose product which is going to add a little bit of warmth to the cheeks and also you can use it on the eyes to pull the whole look together.
