If you’re looking to get the most out of your fav lippies, here are a few lipstick tricks to keep in mind. You can turn any lipstick into a long-wearing lipstick just by doing the following:
When lips have dry skin, the lipstick will adhere unevenly and wear off more quickly in different areas. This causes uneven discolouration. So, you need to frequently re-apply your lipstick. Exfoliating the lips before applying lip-stick will allow for an even application and a smoother texture. The simplest way of doing lip exfoliation is by using your wet toothbrush over your lips. The bristles will not cause any damage to healthy skin. Furthermore, it is strong enough to remove all dry and flaking skin.
POWDER TO PREVENT SMUDGING
Next step is to apply powder on your lips which will prevent smudging of the lip-stick. After applying the lipstick, use a powder brush to lightly dust your lips with translucent powder. Reapply the colour and you’re all set.
DRAW AN ‘X’
For a perfect lipstick, before putting it on lips, draw an ‘X’ on the highest points of your lips using a lip liner. And then fill in your lips with your favourite shade of lipstick.
Concealer will make your lip-stick more intense. Put some concealer on your pout and then use your favourite lipstick shade. Not only does it make the intensity of the lip-stick pop, but it also does not let it fade.
KEEP LIPSTICK OFF THE POINTS
Many times after applying lip-stick on the lips it get stick to the teeth. You can try this simple and easy method to get rid of this nuisance. After applying lip-stick, put your index finger in your mouth, clamping your lips around it. Now pull your finger out. You will see all the excess lipstick on your finger.
TAKING OFF THE LIPSTICK STAIN
If you are struggling to take off the lipstick stain from you lips, you can try coconut oil instead of chemical makeup remover. Using chemical makeup remover is not good for the lips as it might dry the lips. Coconut oil not only dissolves the stain but also moisturises your lips. So, applying coconut oil is a good idea.
