Step one : Understand your lip texture.
The skin and lips can behave as a separate entity. Just because you’re of a certain skin type, doesn’t mean that the skin on your lips also are of the same type too.

So, figuring out and understand the nature of the skin on your lips helps to determine the kind of lipstick formulation you should opt for.
