Prepare Your Lips
Exfoliate Your Lips: It is not necessary to exfoliate your lips every time. If the lips are dry or chapped, you have to scrub then. And don’t exfoliate your lips more than two times a week. Simply remember it is optional. Exfoliation removes the dead skin cells. So, the lipstick glides on and gets attached on the lips easily.
You can simply make a scrub with any oils, like olive oil, jojoba oil, and coconut oil with some brown sugar. Mix them and rub your lips for one minute. See how to make homemade lip scrubs. Or you can use a commercial scrub. Or you can rub your lips with a soft bristle toothbrush dropping some Vaseline on the lips. Or rub a washcloth on the lips. Just do any one.
Moisturize Your Lips: Cleanse your lips with a tissue after exfoliating. Now use a lip balm (Neutrogena) to moisturize the lips. It will soften the lips and help to get the lipstick, lip liner or lip gloss evenly. Apply the lip balm from the upper lips and then follow to the lower one. Press two lips so that the lips can be soft evenly. Wipe off the balm if you notice the balm has been excessive or sticky. Otherwise, it prohibits the lipstick to go evenly.
Applying the foundation on your lips is not emergent. Use a makeup brush or sponge to apply the foundation. The shade of the foundation should be as your face skin color. Getting foundation on the lips mainly will make your lips look natural. Smile stretching out your lips to reach the foundation in the every crease of the lips. Choose NYX Cosmetics lip foundation. It is more praiseworthy.
Applying the lip liner is essential. It prohibits the lipstick from bleeding, it makes a gap to apply lipstick within the borders. Besides, lip liner lets the lipstick stay more hours without smudging. Choose the lip liner color as per your lipstick. (Italia Deluxe lip liner is more reviewed by the customers, see here.) It will define the lips more focused. Don’t forget to use a bit deeper lip liner than the lipstick color if you are going to apply a bold color lipstick. It will make your lips more appealing.
Now apply the lip liner. How your lips will look it depends on the application style of the lip liner. The fuller, bigger, broader, natural, smaller or softer lips depends on the art of lip liner style. Outline your upper lips first with an X sign. Then outline the lower lips. Finally, filling up the lower lips, then follow to the upper lips.
To get natural looking soft lips, apply the lip liner with the fingertips on the corners of the lips. It will soften the edges. To get bigger supple lips, just define the lips outside of the lip line. To get smaller lips, apply the lip liner inside the lip line. Then use the concealer to hide the original lip line. Just this way, if you want bigger/smaller look on the upper or lower lips, apply the lip liner outside/inside the lip line. To get wider lips, apply the lip liner along the lip line and then bring out it of the corners. Like this, to get narrower lips, apply the lip liner just out of the corners and use a concealer on the corners.
The look of your lips depends on the choice of your lipstick color according to your skin or lip tone. You have to know which lipstick color goes fit with your lips. It takes consideration some factors, like your skin tone, the time of the day, the dress color, the lipstick forms, and much more. The texture, complication, and shade of your lips will be prettier and sexier if you can clearly find out what lipstick color is exactly fit for you. See how to choose the lipstick color perfectly.
Then apply the lipstick. You can use a lipstick applicator, like a brush or apply the lipstick directly from the tube. Start from the center of the lower lips and then go to the forward. Fill up the every crack. Then follow to the upper lips. Press the two lips softly to spread the lipstick color evenly. If need, apply the second coat. It will give the lips a long lasting noticeable shade that will look more luscious and beautiful.
Remove the Excessive Lipstick: Put a finger inside the mouth and press your lips around the finger. It will remove the lipstick color that may stain the teeth. Wipe off the color outside the corners or lip lines if any has. If you think it is not enough, apply a concealer outside the lip line matching with your skin tone or face foundation. It will cover up the excessive lipstick shade and prevent the color bleeding.
Give a Finish on the Cupid’s Bow: Apply a highlighting ivory or white lip pencil on the Cupid’s bow. It will make the shape of your lips more natural. Simply outline the Cupid’s bow and be careful if it won’t be on the lipstick color.
After applying the lipstick, cover up the lips with the thinner tissue papers and spread some translucent powder on the papers. Let the paper stay for some seconds. Then pull out the tissues. It will allow the lipstick color longer lasting. Try to use the angular brush. It takes the lips into a noticeable definition.
Applying lip gloss gives your lips a little bit shine or gloss. It will also make the lips smooth and supple. Actually, it is not necessary to apply the lip gloss. If you want more attractive lips, you can apply it. No need to apply the lip gloss all over the lips. Just apply a little on the center of the lower lips.
If you don’t want glossy lips, just spread some translucent powder on the lips for 2-3 seconds. Then blend it onto the lips with a flat brush.
