Lipstick is that one make-up wonder, we can’t do without. You see Kylie Jenner‘s lips and it’s Goals! Many of us are trying to emulate Angelina Jolie‘s sexy plumped pout. However, some of us do struggle with getting the tricks right for the look we may wish for on our lips.
Studies have shown that men’s eyes are drawn to a woman’s lips within the first 10 seconds of meeting her. So how do you make a Guy wanna kiss you just by looking at your lips?
Here are some incredibly easy lipstick-tricks you can make use of:
1. Apply lip stain first
You could use a different technique for lipstick application with this one – apply a lip stain and then proceed with lining your lips. To finish it up, use your preferred lip color over it.
2. Make your own sheer lipstick
The matte finishing has its own effect but for a night out, you could definitely use a shimmery hue. If you’ve been looking for a particular lip shade, make one on your own! Use a matte shade as a base coat and use a shade lighter or darker in a shimmery tone over it. Use a lip brush for the mixing.
3. Apply concealer for fuller looking lips
Simply blend in some concealer at the center of your lips. This helps them appear larger as you apply a coat of your preferred lipstick over it. Want to use your concealer just right? Follow these tips.
4. Smudge lip liner
If you don’t want your lips to look too done up, line them with a pencil and soften the corners with your fingertips. Be cautious of not messing or spreading it all over.
5. Draw an X
If you want your cupids bow looking prominent, draw an X around the center of your upper lip. Once you do this continue to line the rest of your lips.
6. Use translucent powder
You always wish you didn’t have to touch-up your lipstick every now and then, right? Try this for a long lasting effect – blot your lip color with a tissue and brush on some loose or translucent powder. Ensure your makeup lasts longer with these pre-make-up tips.
7. Avoid teeth staining
Many times, because the lip color reaches the inner surface of your lips, it stains your teeth before you realize it. This quick technique can help – put in your index finger and pout, pull it out right then. You’ll see the excess color getting onto your finger.
8. Outline with nude pencil
Even if you are not used to lipstick application with a lip liner, stick to using a lipstick first. As you are done, outline your lips with a nude or concealer pencil. This will shape up your lips beautifully.
9. Shade your lips
Are you looking for a bitten, yet shaded lip-effect? It’s easy – Outline the rest of your lips with a lip liner, leaving the inner center area on your lower lip. Once you have covered up most of your lips, blend in only the center mixing the same color with a gloss or Vaseline.
