So, when it comes to makeup, one of the most important component is lipstick. Even if you apply the right shade for your skin tone, you may not end up with the best results. To avoid such situations follow the steps to get the perfect lipstick day.
Prep it up
Always start with prepping your lips. Apply a lip balm/lip conditioner to make the lips soft and supple. Then, apply a lip primer as that would make the lip color stay on longer and wont let the color bleed.
Apply a base coat
It is important to even out your lips before applying the lip color. Choose a concealer of the shade that matches your lip color, and then apply it with a small fluffy or flat brush. Apply compact powder over it to seal the powder. This technique also makes the lip color stay longer.
Make an outline
Ensure that you line your lips with a color that matches/complements your lipstick to prevent feathering. Apply it properly from one corner to the other on both the upper and lower lips, drawing the line along the outline of your lips.Once you are done lining the lips, fill the entire lip area with the same pencil. This would hold the color of your lipstick intact and it will stay put for a longer time.
Apply the Lipstick
Once you are done applying the lip pencil, take a lip brush and put the lipstick of your choice. Apply it all over the lips. Start from the center of the lip and move it onto the outer corners. Repeat the same procedure for the lower lip. Ensure you apply it within the outlines of the lip pencil. If you are not so good at using a lip brush to apply the color, you can directly use the lipstick for the application.
Define it and give it the final touch.
It is very important to make the lips looks more defined, for that use a concealer on a small flat brush and work on the edges of the lips. Blend the concealer gently, making it disappear onto the skin. This way you can also correct the shape of your lips, as well as make them look more defined and perfectly done.
Finish the look by adding a hint of lip gloss for a glam look, just keep it simple for a day wear.
