- Prepare your lips
Although most people are leading the way in skin care, they usually neglect their lips. When learning how to apply lipstick, preparing your lips should always be the first step. Lip care is as important as skin care because it helps keep lips soft and nourished, and prevent chapped or chapped lips. Dry lips are the worst nightmare of fashionable lipsticks! The lipstick will begin to stick to dry patches, peel off, or ooze chapped lines. Exfoliate lips with a damp toothbrush. Remember to be very soft, because the skin on the lips is fine and delicate. You can also use a lip scrub that is easily available in the market. After exfoliating, use a nourishing lip balm to moisturize and moisturize your lips. Try Maybelline Baby Lips lip care with SPF 20, which not only hydrates the lips, but also protects them from the sun.
Preparation The Base
Apply a small amount of light concealer or foundation that suits your skin tone to all lips. It can be used as a foundation and fill any cracks on your lips, giving your lipstick a smooth and even undertone, so it won’t sink into fine lines. This step is optional, but it can be effective if your lips have hyperpigmentation or uneven color. This quick trick can also prevent the lipstick from bleeding or fading outside the lip line.
Line your lips
Use lip liner to line your lips, give them a clear shape and contour, and help you apply lipstick more precisely. Use any of these 3 lip liners to outline your natural lip line –
- a colorless transparent lip liner, perfect for soft or nude lipstick shades
- a lip line that closely resembles your Pen lip color
- a lip liner that matches your lipstick color: the most commonly used starts with Cupid’s bow (the little “V” in the center of the upper lip) and draws an X shape along it to clearly define Cupid’s bow. Apply along the lip line along the edge of the lips. Then you can apply a little more color inside the edges, or you can fill in all the lips with a lip liner. To create the perfect lip shape and keep your lipstick on longer, try Maybelline’s Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner. The creamy formula of Color Sensational lip liner can easily define the shape of your lips and accentuate them. Did you know that you can also use liquid lipstick to line your lips? Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Lipstick’s unique applicator tip is perfect to use when there is no lip liner at hand. Just use the pointed tip to outline your lips and voila!
Put on lipstick
This is what you’ve been waiting for, how to put on your lipstick like a pro! Start with your favorite lipstick formula and shade. If you like the look of matte lip colors that also feel soft and creamy on your lips, try Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks. These lipsticks are infused with shea butter to give you a refreshing, vibrant lip color and soft, smooth lips. If the matte liquid lipstick is more in line with your style, go for Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick. SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick’s deep color formula gives you a flawless matte finish that lasts up to 16 hours.
Choose the lipstick you like and apply it to the center of the upper lip, just below the Cupid’s bow. If you use liquid lipstick, you can apply the lipstick directly from the tube or applicator, or use a lipstick brush for a more precise application. If you are a beginner, we recommend that you give up the lipstick brush and use the product directly. Now apply the lipstick from the center of the upper lip to the sides until it covers the entire lip.
Repeat the same procedure for the lower lip, starting from the center and working towards the corners. Avoid applying lipstick multiple times, as this can cause the product to build up and make your lips look bumpy and lumpy. Too much product on the lips can also cause the lipstick to crack or bleed out of the lips.
