You don’t necessarily need to be a makeup guru to know that lipsticks (be it glossy or matte) make a huge impact over your entire look—taking your face from plain to attractive or drab to sexy —within seconds. Below are some brilliant hacks and tips on how to add drama to your lips by making them look better and last longer:
PRIME UP WITH FOUNDATION
If you want the exact color that’s made at the packaging, you need to begin with a blank canvas. Apply a thin layer of base all over the lips and mix it well so that it disappears into your skin. Swipe over your lipstick, blot it and add a neutral powder (optional) especially if you want the perfect matte effect.
MAKE YOUR OWN SHADE
Experiment with different lipstick shades to create your own range of lip colors. Mix and match different tones, or swipe a shimmery gloss over a matte one.
SHAPE LIPS WITH CONCEALER
Can’t figure out the right way to trace your lips with a lip liner? Give the illusion of a perfect lip shape without lining your pout: Simply use a concealer at the center of the upper lip. Blend it well.
CREATE A LONG-LASTING TINT
Blot, reapply, then blot again!
Turn any lipstick into a long-lasting tint with this formula to get rid of excess oils. Use a lint free-blotting paper to blot your lips instead of a tissue for a more durable, natural look.
Another trick for the perfect pout is by tracing them out with a lip pencil first, fill it in and then apply the lipstick using a lip brush for amazing results.
GET THEM BIG LIPS
If you wish to make your pout appear a little augmented– use a neutral colored lip pencil which matches your natural lip shade rather than a pencil that goes with your lipstick. Apply your lipstick then and dab some glitter over the center of your lower lip and cupid’s bow. Top off your look with a lip gloss and voila-Your lips will seem bigger!
NO MORE STAINS ON THE TEETH
Once you’ve applied your lipstick, cover your finger with a blotting paper and insert it into your mouth, while making an “O” with your lips. The excess would land up on the tissue once you take your finger out.
If your liner or lipstick is too drying, especially when applying mattes, start off your makeup with a lip balm. Allow it to sink in for at least 5 minutes, and then, swipe your lipstick.
That’s right! Lip exfoliation is as essential as your face and body scrubbing to ensure that your lipstick looks flawless, especially before using a bold shade which might emphasize over imperfections.
