Hey! You can always find a lipstick in a girl’s handbag but not many girls know how to apply it perfectly. I remember when I was in school, I only used to apply moisturizer and sunscreen as I didn’t know how to apply eyeliner or lipstick or anything. But after I started college, I had to do makeup (to look older, lol). Now that I have been doing makeup on my own and have experience for more than 3 years, I would like to share it with you all. If you are one of those who don’t know how to apply lipstick properly, then this is the right post for you to learn!
I wanted to keep it as simple and minimalist as possible. And that’s what I’ve tried to achieve. Also, do note, that I didn’t over-line my lips purposely. Since, it is summer, I opted for a fun bright colour. You can choose whatever colour you are feeling! So, with all being said, let’s dive into the pictorial + tutorial on How to Apply Lipstick Perfectly For Beginners – Easy Step by Step Pictorial.
Time: 5-6 mins.
Things you need:
• Lip balm
• Tissue paper
• Primer/foundation/concealer (optional)
• Lip liner
How to apply: Don’t you all love to watch videos of beauty gurus gliding lipsticks on their lips? Well, I do and to be honest I have learnt from them. So, here is a pictorial on how to apply lipstick perfectly with description:
Step 1: Start from scrubbing. Exfoliate your lips with Vaseline and toothbrush because chapped lips are unattractive. Just apply Vaseline on your lips and take a clean toothbrush and rub it on your lips in circular motions for 2 mins.
Step 2: Now, wipe off with tissue paper and apply lip balm.
Step 3: After 10-15 seconds blot with tissue paper.
Step 4 (Optional): If you have dark or uneven toned lips, you can always cover the same with your favorite foundation/concealer/primer before applying the lipstick. Well, I have skipped the step as my lips are not that dark (I guess) and I applied a pink shade, so, it covers the pigmentation on its own.
Step 5: So, after that just start lining your lips. Follow the natural line of your lips, starting from the upper lips (Cupid’s bow) and then the lower lips.
Step 6: Just fill those spaces with your favorite lipstick and you’re done! VOILA!!!
Isn’t that easy? Hope you all like it! Now, come on! Share it with your girlfriends!!
