How do you stop lipstick from bleeding?

Elyse Silver, Boca Raton, FL

Bobbi: Lipstick migrates the most on dry lips, so during the winter months it's especially important to apply a rich balm at bedtime. By day, go for a moisturizing lip color (look for conditioning vitamin E or shea butter on labels); reserving long-lasting lipstick for special occasions, as they tend to be more drying.

Keep in mind that a topping of slippery gloss can make lipstick bleed. A fix: Hold color in place by lining your lips with a nude pencil that matches your lips, then fill in with your shade. Any color, including bolder reds and plums, will work with that pencil.
