A woman’s lip is one of the most essential parts of her body and hence requires particular attention. If you love your lips as much as we do then here are a few tips and tricks for applying your lipstick:
-While the urge is strong to play with the eyes and lip at the same time please avoid it! If you want to wear a bold colored lip stick then keep the rest of your makeup light. If you’re playing with your eyes then stick to a lip gloss or light colored lipstick.
-You can achieve a plump lip look devoid of fillers by applying liner outside your natural lip line, then dab a bit of gloss in the middle of your bottom lip and smack lips together and voila!
-Okay so you tried on the Russian red lipstick your friend rocked yesterday and you look like a circus clown? The best lipstick shade is a shade or 2 darker than your natural lip color.
-There is no right way to apply a lipstick. Some people prefer applying it from the tube, while some prefer a lipstick brush. Heck! Some women even prefer using their middle finger, just choose the one that’s right for you.
-Your lipstick will last longer if you fill in your lips with a lip liner first. The lip liner acts like a base for the lipstick, this even works for lip gloss as well as the gloss has something to stick to.
-While every female wants defined lips, take great care to ensure that your liner matches the lipstick or gloss. Dark liner and light lips is tacky and so 1990s.
-Rather than throw out a lip stick shade that you don’t like, keep ‘em and blend them in with other shades, you might be surprised at the outcome.
-Want to avoid that lipstick stain on your wine glass the next time you’re out on a date? Discreetly lick your lips lightly before taking a sip. It works every time!
-To prevent that embarrassing lipstick stain on your teeth, after applying lipstick, pop your index finger in your mouth, then pull it out. The excess lipstick will come off on your finger rather than your teeth.
-What you don’t know is that your lipstick can double as the perfect blush for your face. Just dab a few dots on the apples of your cheeks and blend. Remember to moisturize first so that the lipstick blends properly.
-As we grow older, our lips tend to thin out. To avoid reinforcing the thin lip look, avoid dark lip stick shades, matte and gloss and sticks with creamy lipsticks.
-Instead of throwing away broken lipstick, have the bottom heated over a candle or match till it’s a bit melted. Put it back in the base and ensure it is seated properly, put it uncovered in the fridge for about thirty minutes. Tada!
