1.Prep The Lips:
You want to make sure your lips are soft and smooth, not dry or chapped.If you have a dry moth,Use a sugar scrub to remove any dead skin from your lips.then dab lips with a moisturizing balm.
2.Defining with Lip Liner and Concealer:
line your lips with a liner that matches your natural lip color,start toward the center, then trace outwards.Gently blend the outer edge of the line for a more natural look.use a light concealer around your lips,this will draw attention to your lips,creating a greater contrast between the bold lipstick and the natural tone of your skin.
3. Fill in The Bold Lip Color:
Generously apply lipstick with either the ring finger or a small brush to avoid any hard lines.Applying the products directly from the tube or pencil can give you the most pigmented result.
Take a tissue, and place it between your lips to blot the color and allow it to set. Then, apply another layer of lipstick.You can also dab loose translucent light weight powder on the tissue covering your lips,then,reapply lipstick to make it last through the day.
Clean up the edges of your lipstick,checking for lipstick smear on your teeth…its not attractive!Clean that also.
Finally,Balance the rest of your makeup.Go with a smoky or neutral eye,skip the blush but definitely do a contour for the most classic look.
And don’t forget to carry the lip shade with you if you need to re-apply!
