In spite of using the best lipsticks, you end up getting patchy and pigmented lips in the middle or end of the day. To master this art, you just need to know a few easy tricks. Now, you must be wondering, there are tips and tricks to apply lipstick also! Well, yes, there are and they are very easy and less time-consuming. Here, we have enlisted effective steps to achieve a perfect pout that will help your lip color to last all day long without drying and budging.
Step 1: Apply a Coat of Lip Balm
Did you know, the lips are one of the most sensitive skin on the face? Yes, they need an adequate amount of hydration and moisturization, especially before applying lipstick. Because some lipstick has a matte finish or tinted texture which leads to making the lips dry. That’s why giving a good layer of nourishment with a lip balm is extremely important. Use lip balms infused with the goodness of Shea Butter or Coco, they are known to give intense hydration to the lips. Best part? Lip balm also acts as a lip primer, go for a non-colored yet intensely moisturizing balm for a rich color pay-off.
Step 2: Apply a Lip Liner for a Fuller Definition
Well-defined lips give the perfect pout. Now, this step is a game changer for lip makeup. Ever since our childhood, we’ve learned that colouring within the boundary line gives a perfect finish and an attractive look. Similarly, before applying lipstick, outline the lips with a lip liner that is similar to the lip shade you are going to apply. The trick is simple! Stick to the natural shape of the lips while outlining them for a fuller and seamless finish. Lining the lips helps to keep the lipstick from budging and feathering.
Step 3: Color the Lips with Lip Liner
We are revealing a big-time makeup hack that keeps the lipstick intact for a long time. Color the lips entirely with the lip liner before adding a lip color. Even if your lipstick fades away after a couple of hours or a few cups of tea, the liner will stay intact. It is also bliss for someone whose lips dry out too fast, use a lip liner that is infused with moisturizing properties and see the wonders it does to the lips.
Step 4: Apply the Lipstick
Now that your lips are prepped properly, add a pop of lip color. Take the shade and start to apply it from the Cupid’s bow, and glide it swiftly on the entire lips filling it within the boundary created by the lip liner. This style is extremely effective as it ensures the lips are colored perfectly without smudging.
If you are someone who loves to add two shades, then apply the first shade on your entire lips and then go for the second shade. Also, if you want an ombre effect, apply the second shade on the center of the lips and blend it with the finger of a brush for perfect shading of the color.
Step 5: Lock the Lipstick with a Lip Gloss
This step is for the ones who are totally into glossy finish. If you are a lover of glossy lips as much as we are, then you wouldn’t leave the lips without adding a stroke of lip gloss. Apart from adding a glossy shine to the lips, lip gloss acts as a perfect protector. Whether it’s your coffee or the rain, it will give an extra layer of protection that keeps the lipstick intact. Ideally, we recommend using the transparent lip gloss for the last coat, however, you can also use the gloss that matches the shade of your lipstick. SÉRY Butter Shine Lip Gloss is our favourite pick because it is packed with the goodness of Shea Butter that keeps the lips moisturized and nourished throughout the day.
Voila! You are all ready to slay the look with these easy steps of applying lipstick. From dry lips to normal lips, these steps are suitable for every type. To keep your lips nourished and hydrated use lip products that are loaded with moisturizing properties.
