DO YOU APPLY YOUR LIPSTICK CORRECTLY?


When it comes to most important makeup products, lipstick will be definitely mentioned in the list. Lipstick enhances the beauty of your lips and gives your makeup the finishing touch. Lining the lips with a lip linear and applying lipstick gives subtle definition to your lips and beautifully highlights the shape of your lips.
As lips are very sensual in natural, you need to give proper attention while applying lipstick.Applying lipstick looks like a simple task, but often you will notice women with poorly-shaped or smudged lip contour. Half-eaten lipstick and smeared lipstick are also very common problems. Well, once you know the right technique of applying lipstick you don’t have to check on the mirror again and again to make sure the lipstick is still there in a good shape and also you do not have to apply your lipstick over and over again.

HERE ARE SOME SIMPLE APPLICATION TIPS THAT CAN HELP YOUR LIPSTICK LAST FOR HOURS:

  • Before you start applying lipstick on your lips, you need to be sure that your lips are soft and smooth. Lips which are very dry or are cracked are not suitable for applying lipstick. Keep your body well hydrated and while at home keep applying lip balm on your lips. You can also apply olive oil or coconut oil on your lips to make them soft. Before applying lipstick, exfoliate the flaky lips from your lips with a gentle washcloth. This will help in removing the dead skin cells and will make the skin of your lips soft.
  • Add a thin coat of lip primer to give your lips a little moisture before applying lipstick so that your lips does not become dry easily and the color of your lipstick does not fade away soon.  In place of primer you can even use a coat of foundation. This step is applicable to those who need to apply lipstick more than once to keep it in good shape.
  • Now it is time to line your lips with the help of a neutral lip pencil. Try to use a lip pencil in a shade which is close to your natural lip color. It is better not to use lip liners that are too dark. While applying lip liner try to outline your natural lip line only.
  • Next apply your favorite shade of lipstick. For better result apply lipstick with the help of a lip brush. Make sure you have applied lipstick to the corner of your lips as well and your lipstick must remain within the lips’ edges. Blot with the back of your hand or a tissue to remove any excess color and to even out the texture.
  • Finally apply little gloss on top of your lipstick for some extra shine. Put some gloss at the center of your bottom lip and then smack your lips together to spread the gloss across your lips. In case you do not prefer glossy look you can skip this step.
  • Now you need to clean up any mistakes with a tissue paper and re apply the lip liner if needed. Make sure lipstick marks are not there on your teeth as it looks very unprofessional.
For a perfect lips makeup, a key role is applied by the shade of the lipstick color. It is important to consider your skin tone for selecting the right lipstick shade. For instance, those having pale skin must use light shade and glossy lipsticks, while those having dark skin must use lipstick in golden brown, cherry red or nude pink shades.  You can ask a beauty expert to help you find the right lipstick shade.
