It was Egypt where lipstick industry was introduced but only aristocrats could afford it. Now we are in the era where anyone can buy this magical beauty tool, lucky we!
It is very important to know the right color of lipstick that suits you best and the way to apply it. Before buying a lipstick always prefer a well-known and reliable brand that will not ruin your lips. Wait! Let me tell you a secret, only a right brand and perfect lipstick is not enough; you need to achieve some level of expertise to blend the lipstick so that it may not ruin your party by smearing and flaking off. How to apply lipstick in a more seductive way is the question every woman wants to know so here are the steps to go:
You must take it into account that the canvas (your lips) you are working with is neat and blank.
Exfoliate your lips to remove the rough and dead skin and to maintain the smoothness of your lips. For this purpose you need a toothbrush that you use regularly, make it wet with water and rub it in circular motion on your lips for five minutes. Be gentle, your lips are sensitive! This technique will increase blood circulation and your lips will appear more rosy and fresh. You can also use the scrub made up of sugar and honey for exfoliation.
Use lip balm for dryness free and supple lips and dry it off with a tissue or cotton.
A lip primer or foundation can be used to prepare your lips. A lip primer or a foundation makes your lipstick stick to your lips well and it also prevents your lipstick from color changing, it makes the color pop.
Now it’s time to make outline of your lips. Use a sharp lip liner to draw the outline; it will help you in defining the shape of your lips. The color of your lip liner should be exactly same as your lipstick.
Wait! Don’t apply lipstick yet. Your lip liner can be faded away in a short time so you need to dust your lips with loose powder, it will make the liner stay for a longer time.
Yes! Now your lips are ready to apply lipstick. Apply the lipstick with a brush in a way that it completely conflates with your lip outline. Use a concealer to clean the edges.
You don’t want to touch your lipstick again and again? Use a tissue paper and press it between your lips to make it long lasting and look flawless.
If you want your lipstick to look fresh all the day, put on another layer and then press it with tissue. Flaunt it for 24 hours!
If you have a liquid lipstick and you don’t want to use the out liner or lip liner or you don’t have a matching lip liner. Don’t worry about it! All you need to apply the liquid lipstick is a lipstick brush. Dip it in the liquid lipstick and start applying the lipstick on your top lip especially from your Cupid’s bow, make sure that both sides are even and making a cross. Now place your brush into one corner of your mouth and flick it up to the top of your lip do the same with other corner, now fill the space between the lines. Apply the lipstick on your bottom lip using the same technique. Liquid lipsticks look more glamorous and royal.
There are some tips and tricks all women should know before applying lipstick, the important lipstick hacks are here for you:
Applying lipstick is an art; you must have an artistic approach before putting it on. Consider the shape and size of your lips before applying lipstick.
If you have bigger lips and you want to make them look smaller outline them with lip liner inside your lip line and hide your natural lip line with a concealer, and if you want to make your lips look bigger or fuller outline them with a lip liner just outside your lip line.
For a deeper color of your lipstick, choose a darker lip liner. A lip liner darker than your lipstick will highlight the color of your lipstick making it more opaque.
Your complexion matters a lot so be careful about choosing a lipstick. If you have a fair complexion, light pink or nude colors will be best for you, for a dark complexion go for bold colors such as burgundy or plum.
Dark lipstick colors make your lips appear smaller and vice versa so consider it before buying any lip color.
If you have dry lips, matte lipsticks will not be suitable for you. Try experimenting with lipsticks containing lip conditioning agents.
Are you afraid of getting your lipstick onto your teeth? Yes it looks horrible, but this simple precaution will be helpful for you. Take your finger inside your mouth when you complete the task of applying your lipstick and close your lips around the finger making a pout then take it out. Feel free to go out now; your lipstick won’t stick to your teeth.
If you don’t have a lipstick matching perfectly with your dress you want to wear, mix two colors to make a homogeneous new shade.
For the illusion of wider lips, draw the lip liner outside the corners of your lips and vice versa.
A controlled, subtle and more natural look can be attained by applying the lipstick from the center of your lips and then merge it with your finger.
