The Rules For Doing Lipstick Right

Friday, 9 May 2014

Lipstick is a big factor in Makeup, here are some of the top rules to achieving the best pouty colored lip!

 Start Fresh

Exfoliate lips once or twice a week (a mix of salt and almond oil), then follow with balm.

In The Nude

The prettiest nude lip color is slightly brighter or deeper than your skin tone. If you're pale, look for something with a hint of pink. Those with yellow or olive undertones or dark skin look best with sandy beiges.

Avoid Shimmer Lipsticks 

Shimmer can look cheap. Look for lipsticks with a creamy finish. Light reflection should come from moisture in the formula not metallic pigments.

Find The Right Bright

Choose a bright shade based on your lips' natural color—not your skin tone. Women with pale lips look best in cherry red or coral; for naturally reddish lips, try hot pink, orange, or cranberry; for dark lips, brick red and burgundy are ideal. 

Don't Worry About Liner

Liner is no longer a must—today's lipsticks don't bleed. To enhance your Cupid's bow or add symmetry, use a pencil that matches your lips, not your lipstick. 

 Soften The Edges

Careful application is good; clinical precision isn't. Just smudge the border of your lips slightly. 

Start In The Middle

When applying any shade of lipstick, start at the center of lips and blend color out toward the corners of your mouth. Never apply it directly to the corners of your mouth—it will look clownish. 

Don't Overdo It

Prevent a strong lipstick shade from looking heavy by swiping it on just your bottom lip, pressing lips together, and using your finger to distribute the color over your mouth. 

Simple yet effective tips to consider when using lipstick, hope this helped
Until Next Time, Bye!
