How to choose lipstick colors that flatter seems to get harder as we age. It can be a daunting task when you try to break out of a makeup rut.  How much money have you wasted on lipstick colors that look terrible when you get home from the store and wear them in the wild? Or how much time have you wasted trying to apply the perfect lip just to see it fade away in minutes? It gets worse when your natural lip is thinning and fading on its own.  We get it!

Here are three videos we love that talk about how to choose colors and how to apply them for desired results in aging lips.  In the comments below, tell us which brand/lipstick color you love and why.  Sometimes it takes a village to zero in on the perfect shade!
