Applying lip color is a great way to instantly change a look. Check out how to apply lip color.
Applying Lip Color
Lip liner is not essential but if used, it should be applied first. It
should either be neutral in color or match the shade of your lipstick
and not darker than your lipstick, so that if the lipstick fades, you
don't walk around with only the outline showing. Lip liner is used to
define the look of your lips and normally, you start lining them on your
natural lip line starting from the center of your upper lip to the outer
edge. For sharpening the lip pencil, chill it in the refrigerator for a
few minutes first. To make the lipstick stay longer, use foundation on
the lips first, then apply lipstick, blot the extra color with a tissue,
reapply the lipstick and then dust the lips with powder. Since
foundation and powder make lips drier, use lipstick with a creamy
formula to counter the effect.
For applying the color, stretch the lips and starting at the center of
the lip and glide the color to the corners. Lip brushes help you to give
better finish to coloring your lips and avoid the application of excess
color. A quick way of applying lip color is to use the lipstick to stain
the bottom lip, press them together to transfer some of the color to the
upper lip and then use the angle tip of the sponge applicator to refine
lip edges. For more natural looks, you can try tips given below:
- The beautiful raspberry stain can be obtained by applying the
berry color on the lips, blotting it with the tissue and then use
brush to apply a second coat of the lipstick.
- The nude bare lip looks can be obtained by using neutral pink lip
color that matches your skin tone. Pale colored women can go for
light orange color with a pinkish tint while olive skin can use
brownish bronze shade. Avoid lip liners as you don't need the harsh
lines. Add clear gloss to the center of your lip and you are ready.
- There are lipsticks that add warmth and volume to your lips and
are also have a flavor and perfume of their own. So buy the favorite
fruity, candy or other flavors of your spouse for your honeymoon!
- Older women should use creamier lipsticks.
- Orange and brown shades make your teeth appear yellow so until
you have that picture-perfect smile, keep them off your lips.
- In summers, you may have those dreaded dry cracked lips. Simply
use your toothbrush to get rid of the dead skin gently and apply lip
balm generously on them to heal them soon.
- Brown toned lips take on brown shades such as apricots, beiges,
peaches and cappuccinos better than pink or blue toned lipsticks.
