Tips on applying lipstick

There are so many different lipsticks available these days, it would be a shame to not wear them, and by not knowing how to wear them. There are different ways to wear different colors.

There are a few simple things you will need to have on hand to apply them properly. You will need the lipstick itself, a lip liner, a soft cloth or something similar, and a love for make-up.

The simplest trick is to line your lips with a lip liner, that is a shade or two darker, than the lipstick you are intending to wear. This will keep the lipstick from bleeding and staining your skin in the process.

If you want you can also choose a color that is lighter, or a different shade all together, but make sure that they go together. Like a red would do well with a maroon or a dark pink.

Then apply the lipstick evenly over the whole lips and take the soft cloth and blot it. To do this you simply put the cloth in between your lips and softly press one or two times or until you get the required shade you are after.

This is especially great if you are trying on a neon shade and don’t know how to apply it properly. Or, you apply more lipstick and do the same thing all over again to get the shade you want.

If required, put on a layer of lip balm about 15-20 minutes before and let it soak in, if you have dry lips, to soften them and to make sure the lipstick will not sink into the dry cracks of the lips, and making the dry cracks stand out.

Also, if you have very dry lips and have dry skin on them, you should take a scrub and wash your lips with the scrub before applying it.
