Picking the correct lip color is almost as tedious as finding the best pair of jeans that fits your butt, leaves you muffin top-less and elongates your legs. Great lips can really set off your style, but what’s the best way to choose and apply lipstick or gloss? Here are some tips on how to get a perfect lip color.
How To Apply Lipstick Perfectly in 6 Steps:
1. Exfoliate your lips
This will help remove any dead skin cells and give you a smooth canvas to work on. It will also help your lips feel softer. You can exfoliate your lips by gently brushing them with a toothbrush for a few seconds, or rubbing them with a damp towel. You can also make a lip scrub using one part oil and one part sugar.
2. Lip Balm
Dot your lip with lip balm to smooth them and reduce crevices. This will help give you an even application of lipstick.
3. How To Apply Lipstick Perfectly with Lip Liner
To define your natural lip line and to prevent your lipstick from getting messy, use a good lip liner to define, reshape and perfect the contours of the lips. This way you will achieve a more defined, precise and polished look.
4. Powder Your Lip Liner
A light dusting of powder gives lip liner extra staying power. Pick up a tiny amount of loose translucent powder with a cotton pad, curl it around your middle finger and press it against the back of your hand to remove excess, then carefully roll it over your lip liner. Don’t apply too much, otherwise, your lip liner will appear blurred.
