There’s no better magic than a swipe of lipstick. It can brighten up any look and take whatever you’re wearing to a whole new level. Whether you apply red, orange, maroon or purple, lipstick when worn right can do wonders for your look. Here is a stepwise breakdown of how to apply lipstick the right way…
When applying lipstick, the first step is to choose a colour that matches your skin tone. Depending on the occasion, it can be matte or glossy.
Before applying lipstick, start by defining your pout with a lip liner.
When applying lipstick ensure that the shade of the lip liner matches the lipstick shade you’ve chosen. If it’s darker, it will pop a little too much and look unsightly.
Here's how to apply lipstick:
Line your lips with the liner and make a cross on the Cupid’s bow. After this, you can continue to line the outline of the upper and lower lip.
Apply lipstick on your lipstick brush and fill in your lips with the colour.
An insider tip to applying lipstick requires some compact powder to be applied onto your lips once the liner and lipstick application is complete. To do this, take a tissue, place it over your lips and dust on a dab of powder over the lips. After this step, take the lipstick shade and add a final swipe over your lips for a professional finish.
