How To Create Perfect Lips And Apply Lipstick Correctly

Creating perfect lips should never be difficult. In fact, with a little bit of practice, you can create it in no time. All you need is the right lipstick color for your skin tone and a lip liner with similar shade and you’re ready to go. Here’s how to create the perfect lips, step by step.

Step 1 – Make your lips soft and smooth

Just like a smooth canvas, it is important for the lips to be soft and supple in order to create the flawless look and chapped lips won’t do you good. Use a good moisturizing lip balm and exfoliate your lips once a week with a soft bristled toothbrush to remove old flakes on the lips.

Step 2 – Prepping the lips

Apply a lip balm to moisturize and protect your lips and dab a bit of lip primer on the lips area. The lip primer acts as a base for the lipstick to glide on smoothly. Alternatively, you can also use a bit of powdered foundation for the same effect.

Step 3 – Defining the lips

Use the lip liner to line the outer edges of your lips to define and prevent the lipstick from ‘bleeding’ (particularly if you use lip gloss later on). Begin from the center of top lip and line towards the corner and do the same for bottom lip.

Step 4 – Applying the lipstick

Relax your mouth and apply lipstick evenly, keeping in mind not to go over the line you’ve drawn with lip liner just now.

And although you think it’s a hassle, it’s a good idea to use a lip brush when applying lipstick. Simply dab evenly the brush on the lipstick and apply it on the lips. Using a lip brush will give you a precise application with the right amount of lip color (so you won’t waste any expensive lipsticks!). If you want to apply a lip gloss or like a deeper color, wait until the last step.

Step 5 – Final touch

After you’re satisfied with the look, blot a bit of the lips color by clamping lightly on tissue to wipe off the excess. And now if you want to apply a lip gloss, apply lightly on the lips to avoid ‘bleeding’ and looking tacky unnecessarily or if you want a deeper, richer shade, apply more lipstick and you’re done with it!

Creating perfect lips should be a breeze now you know these steps. Try it out and you can pull the look effortlessly in no time.
