2. Applying Lipstick On Chapped Lips
It is a good practice to keep your lips hydrated and moisturized to flash that beautiful smile anytime. Furthermore, smooth lips make it easier to apply a beautiful shade of lipstick on.
3. Applying Lipstick Immediately After Lip Balm
You may maintain your lips with rich lip balms, but do NOT apply lipstick instantly after using it. This lipstick mistake prevents the colour of the lipstick from fully transferring to your lips and you only end up spreading your lip balm around.
4. Not Lining Your Lips
If you’re not using lip liner, then it is time to begin! A lip liner helps define your lips and keep your lipstick in check. However, you don’t want to overdo it, either. And, you certainly don’t want to use the wrong shade of lip liner, too. We suggest sticking to a lip liner that is just a slight shade darker than your lipstick to give a fuller look to your lovely lips.
5. Over-Applying Lipstick
Yes, its possible you put on a layer too much of your favorite shade of lipstick. This leads to smudging and it just makes your lips look shabby. A single coat of a glossy lipstick or a full coverage of a matte lipstick are sufficient to give you the outcome you desire. You can check out our range right here.
6. Not Using The Right Lipstick Shade
A common lipstick blunder is using the wrong shade – different lipstick shades suit different skin tones and lip shapes. Darker lipsticks make the lips look thinner and lighter shades give the appearance of fuller lips. You can now do the math.
7. Rubbing Your Lips Together
What? Seriously? Noooo! Weren’t you taught this cardinal rule after applying lipstick to rub your lips together for an even spread? Well, stop it now! It not only messes up the even application of the lipstick, but can also spread product around the lips and create blotches.
8. Not Setting Your Lipstick
To increase the lifespan of your applied lipstick, hold a tissue over your lips and dust it with setting powder.
9. Not Doing The Blotch Test
Ultimately, to avoid getting lipstick on your teeth, stick your index finger in your mouth and slowly pull the finger out. Excess lipstick should come off on the finger and leave your teeth peacefullyalone.
10. Not Removing Lipstick
Do not wear your lipstick to bed, even if you’re exhausted. You certainly risk ruining your sheets. But, more importantly, it prevents your lips from breathing. Remove your lipstick and apply lip balm before switching the lights off to help your lips recover from a fun day or night out.
It is redundant to say that lip care and beautifully applied lipstick go hand in hand, along with high-quality products.
