Good evening lovelies,
Today I’m sharing with you how I apply my lipstick each day for a long-lasting finish. If you’re new to wearing lipstick the application can be a little trick to master, but with practise you’ll be able to do this quickly and easily!
Ensure your lips are makeup-free. I use a soft toothbrush to clean makeup and dry skin off my lips. Use your foundation brush to apply a small amount of foundation powder to your lips, this will help set your lipstick and make it last longer.
Outline your lips using your bullet brush and lipstick, I haven’t used lipliner for a couple years with this method I’m showing you. You can accentuate your lips into different shapes when you draw them on, but it can take practise, if you’re new to wearing lipstick just follow your natural lip line. The reason we draw the outline first is so we can clearly see the shape we’re creating; so its symmetrical and any mistake made are easier to fix.
Using your bullet brush apply lipstick to the inside of your outline, not forgetting to colour the corners of your lips. NEVER apply lipstick directly without your bullet brush as its so easy to make a mistake and ruin your hard work.
With foundation powder on your sponge, apply the powder by using a dabbing motion to apply the powder to your lips. The powder will help your lipstick last much longer and prevent your lipstick from “bleeding”, with an extra layer for food, and sweat to get through.
Re-apply your lipstick again, lining the outside then filing in the inside again. Once you’ve done this I recommend using an earbud to trace around the outside line of your lips to clean any marks, and also use it on the very inside of your lips to ensure you don’t get lipstick on your teeth.
And that’s all there is to it! For a bit of extra glamour if you’re going out, or are perform simply take a bit of red glitter on your fingertip and dab it onto your lips, the lipstick being moist will hold the glitter really well!
Feel free to ask any questions if anything is unclear, and if you have any requests for tutorials I’d love to hear them!
