Liquid lipstick is becoming more popular. It has become an alternative to the usual and maybe even cheaper. Hence, it is not enough to have one in your makeup bag. Better believe that there is a wrong way to apply lipstick. We are here to help. Here are some Do’s and Don’t’s in using Liquid Lipstick.
Moisturize: before applying your liquid lipstick moisturise. This is not only healthy for your lip but it will prevent dryness. Imagine applying lipstick on a rough wall- that’s how it feels if you do not moisturise.
Exfoliate: this is necessary to expose that soft, luscious toned lip colour and texture. So when you exfoliate your face, don’t forget your lips. This makes applying the lipstick smoother and easier.
Take your time: don’t be in a hurry to apply and move on. No one wants you to spend the whole day applying lipstick, just take time so as to avoid patches or not fully applying it to all parts of your lips (that won’t look pretty).
Apply on bare face: some people with flawless skin and natural beauty (which we all have) can apply just lipstick and still look glam (if that’s you contact us to share your secret). For the rest of us, you don’t have to have a fully made up face just have enough to warrant lipstick. A little concealer and foundation will do the trick.
Apply too much: Don’t be overzealous. You don’t want to finish the whole bottle in one swipe. When you want to apply, clean off the excess on the wand on the edge of the lipstick bottle before you apply it. With that, you will get the right amount.
Rub: avoid rubbing your lips together after applying liquid lipstick. Instead, use a lip brush to spread it out evenly.
With all these in mind, you will rock a flawless matte lip before you know it.
