Lipsticks are an integral part of our beauty routines. A lipstick can easily take your look up a notch and can also bind your whole look together in an instant. In today’s post let’s talk about some tips, tricks and hacks that will make the lipsticks application process flawless.
So let’s get started!
Start With a Smooth Canvas
By this I mean follow the exfoliation and moisturization routine for your lips. You can use a mixture of brown sugar and olive oil to exfoliate your lips. After this, use lip balm. These steps will ensure that your lips are ready for your lipstick applicaton.
Use the Foundation
If you feel that the exact colour of your lipstick doesn’t show up the same on your lips then apply a thin coat of foundation all over your lips and blend over your lip line. Now apply your lip shade which will turn out exactly the same as on the bullet!
Turn Any Lipstick Into a Long-Wearing One
After applying a coat of lipstick, hold a tissue over your mouth, and then dust translucent powder over it. Follow with another layer of lipstick and you are done!
Trick for fuller looking lips
If you have really thin lips then try this trick! Select two lip liners with the same undertones, but one to two shades apart. Line the top lip with the lighter shade and use the darker tone on the bottom lip line. This will give the illusion of fuller looking lips.
Use X method to get the perfect Cupid’s bow shape
Place your lipstick wand in an X shape over your cupid’s bow and then apply your lipstick as usual.
Reshape your lips with a concealer
Cover your lips with concealer and then tracing just slightly outside your natural lip line with a lip liner pencil, making them appear larger. Now you can use your usual lip shade afterwards over the concealed lip areas.
Make your lipstick pop
If you want your lips to be the centre of attraction then line the outside of your lips with cover-up and a concealer brush to make your lipstick pop! This trick will also ensure that your lipstick will stay in place minus the bleeding.
Lighten your lip shade
If you have bought a dark lipstick shade by mistake and don’t want to wear it then you can tone down the intensity of the colour by this trick. Just apply a nude lipstick and apply your dark lipstick. You will have the lighter and more toned down version of the same shade.
