The highlight for brown eyes is a lip color with cold blue, dark red or burgundy tones. For blue or green eyes, highlight lips with warm orange-red and coral.
When moisturizing your lips, apply the balm across the lip line, onto the skin. Leave on as long as possible before applying lipstick.
Line your lips with a pencil that matches your lipstick color – emphasizing a single, natural-looking area.
It is not advisable to apply blush with light lipstick – choose a blush of the same color as the lipstick and lightly blend it with your fingers.
Apply a thin layer of matte liquid lipstick, then apply a layer of regular lipstick on top. Using the same colors or different colors, create a beautiful color and texture for the lips.
Use a sponge or a card underneath your lips to line your lips precisely, so the excess lipstick will flow over there, not on the skin around the lips.
If you want to make your lips look fuller, use a lighter shade of lipstick in the middle of the upper and lower lips relative to the lip line.
Most people don’t know where their lip line ends. Tilt your head back so you can line your bottom lip and make your lips look fuller.
Cream lipsticks can be applied with a brush, but most matte lipsticks work better when you apply them in a dotted pattern on the lips.
For easy bold lip makeup, apply lipstick, then press a clean finger along the lip line to soften things up.
Before applying lipstick, apply a light shade of foundation to create brightness to help lips look naturally full and sharp.
Dab lip gloss between your upper and lower lips, then lipstick, then purse your lips together. This will make your lips more even.
Do not put powder on top of lipstick. It can oxidize, change lip color and cause wrinkles.
Lip gloss is a liquid, it is easy to drift. Apply lip gloss over a layer of long-wearing lipstick for a glossy finish that lasts.
The purpose of nude color is to make your lips look fuller, not without lipstick. Choose a tone that is a little darker or lighter than your skin tone.
Lipstick whole lips with primer. When the lipstick on top wears off, the color underneath, instead of your actual lip color, will be the color of your primer. Thus, it looks in harmony with the face when the lipstick is lost.
Start lipstick in the center of your lips and apply evenly, then smile lips together and the color will gradually follow your natural lip contour.
A little concealer around the lips or two lip liners helps keep the lipstick from moving or flowing into lines.
Your lips are not the same color as your skin, try lipstick on your lips, not on the back of your hand.
For a red lip, do the opposite of what you usually do. Apply lipstick, then apply primer (same red or slightly darker) to shape.
Before applying bold lipstick, use a piece of tape to gently blot your lips to dry them without irritating your lips like exfoliating.
If you want your lips to be even, even on dark spots, dip your finger in the lipstick and then gently dab it on the dark areas of the lips. You will get evenly colored, fresh, dark lips.
