Prep your lips

For the perfect application of these lipsticks, it is very important to have moisturized lips. For that, a good balm is key. Apply it at least 5 minutes before the lipstick to let it moisturize your lips well. 

Take off the excess of shine

Remove excess with a tissue!

Remove any extra shine from your lip balm with a tissue or a blotting paper. This will leave the color but remove the extra product that so easily transfers to your glass or drinking bottle. 

Line the lips

Line the lips!

It’s very important to carefully outline the lips with a lip pencil. “So, this is step one of any lip look, and so is framing the cupid’s bow. It is probably the most prominent part of someone’s mouth and probably the most beautiful, in my opinion,” explains Katie Jane Hughes, celebrity and editorial makeup artist.

For an extra long-lasting look, apply lip pencil all over your lips to create a stain under your lipstick. 

Apply correctly

Lips purse

Apply lipstick not starting at edges (as you would do with the pencil). Start applying close to where the lips purse or where your mouth opens, it’s going to make it easier to keep tweaking toward the lip edge.

Fix the errors

Accidentally swiped lipstick across your chin? “Take a brush and take a little bit of face cream on that brush and you erase it with a brush prepped with face cream. This is a makeup erasing trick from makeup artists around the world,” says Hughes.

A good lipstick can totally change your day, don’t forget to apply it with these tips so you can get the best look!
