Lipstick is one of my favourite makeup products.
Recently I wrote a post about my favourite lipsticks called 5 Best Lipsticks That Stick.
I am going to do a brief post on how to apply lipstick (this is for beginners! So if you are really good at applying lipstick, don’t read this). When I first started wearing lipstick, I thought ‘hey, this’ll be easy’. Little did I know. It wore off quickly, it smudged and it just didn’t look right. So I came up with these steps to make my life easier:
1) Apply lip balm to soften your lips.
2) Optional: Use a lip liner of the same (or close to the same) shade as your lipstick.
3) Apply lipstick using either a brush or just straight from the stick. If you don’t use lip liner (I don’t), apply lipstick from the outside in.
I always apply it lining the lips first (with lipstick since I don’t use liner) and then when I fill my lips in I apply it in down strokes rather than going across. My Tante (Aunt) always said to apply it that way because it fills in the crevices and also lasts longer.
2) I have filled in the lips using down strokes rather than across. I think I smudged my lipstick onto my skin a bit by accident. It’s 10.30 at night and I am applying lipstick 😀 I’m allowed to make mistakes.
I used GOSH Velvet Touch. No 136 Burgundy.
