Choosing the right shade of lipstick is important in order to enhance your best feature and tying your whole look together. Then comes picking the right texture of lipstick depending on what you find more comfortable - matte, crème or glossy. But is that all you need to get right in order to ace the most perfect lipstick application? Absolutely not.
Just like cleansing, toning and moisturising your skin is essential to get a flawless makeup base, there are a few things you need to do before and during applying liquid lipstick to ensure it looks perfect.
Does your liquid lipstick settle into the fine lines on your lips minutes after application? If yes, that’s because it does not have a smooth surface, to glide on. So stop blaming the texture and quality of your lipstick and start exfoliating. Take lip scrub and gently exfoliate your lips 2-3 times a week. This will not only remove dead and dry skin but will also promote blood circulation making your lips look naturally pink and enhance the shade of your lipstick. You can also prepare a DIY scrub by mixing two simple ingredients from your kitchen – sugar and olive oil. Mix well and gently scrub for a minute or two to get the plumpest pout ever!
Avoid too many layers
Another mistake most women make while applying lipstick is that they put on too many layers. The causes your lipstick to easily flake. Therefore, stick to applying only 1-2 layers depending on the opacity of the lipstick.
Start with the bottom lip
Surprise, surprise, there’s actually a right way to wear lipstick and sadly, it’s not what you’ve been doing. Experts recommend starting with your bottom lip as there will always be more product on the applicator wand when you pull it out and correcting mistakes on the lower lip is way easier.
