Lipstick application is way more than swiping lipstick over your lip. So many people think applying it is just going over your lips with a lipstick and that’s it. It is actually more than that if you want to get a perfect application and if you want people thinking a professional did it.
Step 1: Prepare Your Lips
Gently go over your lips with a soft toothbrush to remove any dry and flaky skin.
When using a face moisturizer, massage a little onto your lips as well.
Step 2: Lip Primer
The best base for lipstick is foundation. It’s full of moisturizing agents, it evens out lip color, helps lipstick stay on longer, and prevents color changes during hot weather.
Step 3: Lip Liner
Lip liner defines the shape of your lips and prevents your lipstick from bleeding. So line your lips with a lip liner before applying your lippie.
Step 4: Powder Your Lip Liner
Put a little white powder on the lip liner for extra staying power.
It’s important that you don’t apply too much powder, or your lip liner will appear blurred.
Step 5: Apply Lipstick
Your lipstik should cover your lip liner exactly. Once you’ve applied a first coat, blot with a cosmetic tissue, then add a second coat and blot again to make it last longer.
