How to Rock the Look of Metallic Gleam?
Metallic lipstick is no space science. It is just how you do your lips before. But for new comers and for pros to here are some friendly reminders and notes. Hope they will be helpful.
#A Strong Base Is Needed for A Strong Structure
Make your lips beautiful so that they look beautiful in anything. If your bare lips are already like a rose petal than no matter what you wear will make you look like a rose. If you have dry flaky lips then applying something heavy and fine like metallic will only make matters worse.
Exfoliate the lips. So, you have soft and smooth lips. Keep them moisturized so they do not look chapped but full and lustrous. Thus, your metallic lipstick will look the best. Apply any moisturizer on lips at least 15 minutes prior to lipstick.
Apply a primer or you can use concealer or foundation and create a friendly base for them. They will help to hold the pigment.
The lining is also important. This does not allow feathering and you know where you are going. It also holds the color in place and can make your lips fuller, bigger, smaller or anything that you like.
#Now Get Your Metal Mate
When your lips are ready bring in the star. Choose the color you want. Most of the application tips are easy to use. But also be careful a bit. Metallic is an understanding cosmetic piece. They help you with what they got to look the best.
#Cleaning the Mess
We got to admit no matter how experienced and careful we are, we just cannot help to make a mess sometimes (I mean, hello! To err is human. It is obvious). And coloring outside of the line……….. we have been doing that since play school. And we loved it that way. So, as an adult when we mess up and go slightly out of the line when coloring our lips, it’s no big deal.
Just use micellar water or makeup remover. Take a cotton dip in them and clear the mess. Then using an angled brush to apply a flesh toned concealer around the edges to create the finish look.

#Revealing the Best
Now here is a tip that will make you look better and your lips more natural. Select a concealer that is two shades darker than your skin tone. Dust a bit just below your bottom lip followed by a dab of the illuminator. Apply above your cupid bow too. This will give you the perfectness you deserve.
#Rest of the Best
Girl, you absolutely do not want your face a show-off where the different artist has put their best creation without managing the place. Your eyes, cheeks, lips all together cannot be a highly rated piece of art (than trust me you will be a piece of a joke). So, as for the rest of your makeup, maintain a low-profile. Let your lips shine. Make your eyelash voluminous, can draw the upper lids a bit. And for cheeks. Something nude will do better.
Enjoy a happy lip day!
