When it comes to makeup, lipsticks are some of my favourite beauty products. I love wearing a bright shade even on no makeup days, like these days. A good lipstick has the power to wake up your face. I have quite a huge collection of lipsticks in a variety of shades, so I have stopped buying for now. It is funny to look back at the days I avoided putting up lipsticks because I didn’t know how best to apply them on my lips. If you are like how I was back in the day, you will find these 5 tips for perfect lips very useful.
Get the lightening right
The first thing you need to do is to make sure you are applying your lipstick under the brightest light possible. That way you have a good idea of how the shade really looks. The last thing you would want is to apply too much or too little lipstick because you have a dull light.
Use a lip brush
This is the oldest trick in the book. If you want your lipstick to stay on longer, use a lip brush. I know it is a lot easier to just apply the lipstick directly but using a lip brush gives a better finish and stays on a lot longer.
Line your lips
I always use a lip liner to line my lips before filling in with a lipstick. That way the lipstcik stays on longer and looks a lot better too!
Powder the lips
After applying the first coat with a lip brush, add some face powder lightly over the lips to act as a base for the second coat.
Blot and reapply
Once the first coat is applied, wait a minute, blot and reapply using a lip brush as before. These steps lock in the shade living a smoother finish which stays on for longer.
