It’s the thought of applying the wrong shade that many of us dread. you follow these easy but important steps for the perfect lips glower.
EXFOLIATE WITH A LIP BALM
Treat your lips just like you would treat your face. Ex-foliate lips, moistur
KEEP YOUR MAKEUP MINIMAL
It’s always safe to highlight only one feature of your face. If you are going for bold lips then better keep the rest of your face makeup minimal for perfect balance.
AVOID TOO MUCH SPARKLE
“Shimmer can look cheap,” says make-up artist Troy. Look for lipsticks with a creamy finish. “Light reflection should come from moisture in the formula, not metallic pigments,” he says.
CHOOSE RIGHT COLOUR
Finding the right shade is important. Different colours work differently on various complexion types, so try on a bunch of shades before zeroing down on the most suitable one. Advice: go for a shade that complements your skin tone. Lighter shades of reds and burgundy look fabulous with warm skin tones, while pinks and true reds work brilliantly for fairer skin.
Always use primer before you start applying the lipstick. Because
– it will give the lipstick shade a better colour contrast.
– it will help your lipstick last longer (throughout the day).
In case you run out of primer or you don’t have one, you can use foundation instead.
SOFTEN THE EDGES
Just smudge the border of your lips slightly so as to get a natural, not-overly-done look.
WASH OFF LIPSTICK & EXFOLIATE
Always take it off before you go to sleep.
