    How To Apply Lipstick
    [​IMG]


    Lipstick is the product that gives your Makeup the finishing touch. It unites the colors you have used to bring your face alive.

    Because our Lips are the most sensual feature on our face careful attention should be given to them when applying Lipstick. With that in mind we recommend the following 5 Tips:


    1. Prior to applying your Lipstick you should use a Lip Liner to give your lips a neatly defined edge.


    2. Apply a little moisturizer to soften your Lips and also to help the Lipstick to glide on more easily.


    3. Apply a light coat of foundation to your Lips to act as a base and to help even out the color.


    4. Outline the natural edge of your lips with a Lip Pencil that is not more than one shade darker than the Lipstick you'll be using. The Lip Liner keeps the color from bleeding and it gives you a guideline for applying your Lipstick.


    5.When it's time to apply your Lipstick, relax your mouth so it opens slightly. Using a Lip Brush, apply your Lipstick starting at the center of each lip working outwards to fill in the Lipstick.

    You can prevent your Lipstick from sticking to your teeth by inserting a finger inside your mouth and withdraw it slowly to remove any excess Lipstick from inside your lips.

    The Pouty Lip[​IMG]

    Step One: Lining the lip. It's important that you always use a lip liner. A lip liner is used to define and create the perfect pout. You can use your natural line or draw a more defined larger lip.

    Directions for lining the lips:

    Startwith the center of your lips, the heart of the upper lip. Start with defining the right side from the center to the right corner. Continue with the bottom lip over to the left corner. Move to the upper lip and close the heart. The perfect pout!!!! Always use a liner that is a shade or two darker than your lipstick, stick with the same tone (don't use red with a brown lip color). Always use lip liner when using lip-gloss, it will add to the sexy pout.

    Step Two:Lip Color-Choose a color that is right for you. Color can be applied with a brush for a more opaque look; it's great to add gloss after the lipstick. This will help keep your Lip Color strong and the gloss will stay on longer.

    Directions for Lip Color: Start with the right side of the lips, upper lip first. Lip Color should be inside the lip liner, not on the outside of the liner! Be careful not to put color on the inside of the lips, you don't want the Lip Color on your teeth.

    How to achieve a straighter lip line?



    1. If the corners of your mouth turn only slightly downwards,

    applying lip liner slightly upwards at the corners of the mouth

    can make them appear straighter.

    If the downward-turn is more pronounced, start by correcting the line from the Cupid's bow. [​IMG]



    2. Leave the line open-ended at the corner of the mouth.

    Hi Sujakalyan,

    Here is your query answered:

    Tips to make lipstick last longer


    There are other ways to help make your lipstick last longer, such as to apply a layer of lipstick and then blot it with a tissue and then go ahead and apply another layer of lipstick. This is like putting on two coats of paint. It looks better and has more coverage to stay on longer and look fresh longer. The first layer of lipstick is to seal the color into the lips. The second is to make it bright and looking fresh and longer lasting

    If you like pencil lip liners there are just about as many colors of lip liner as there are of lipstick. When applying lip liner to make your lipstick last longer it helps because the lip liner is dryer than the lipstick and won't smudge off as easily. Also the liner keeps the lipstick from running off the lips and going away to not last longer.

    You can also try applying a thin layer of lipstick with a lipbrush instead of from the tube. Thin layers are said to stay on longer than thick layers. This could be because a thin layer is dryer and not as likely to come off because it sticks to the lips better.

    There are ways to make your lipstick last longer with just using your make up at hand or some baby powder. Use the baby powder on lips to make the lipstick last longer, put the lipstick on and then put a gentle, thin layer of powder on the lips. This dries the lipstick and locks in the color of the lipstick. Then if a more vibrant color is wanted apply a second coat of lipstick over the powder and first layer of lipstick. Powder foundation can also be used.

    To use the makeup at hand to help make your lipstick last longer, use a liquid foundation on the lips before the lipstick is applied. This once a gain locks in the color and helps the lipstick to stick to the lips.

    Matte lipsticks seem to last longer than shimmer ones but the matte does dry out the lips so keep a lip-gloss or moisturizer] on hand. Although if you choose a lipstick color closer to the color of your natural lips then the lipstick won't dry out the lips so bad.
    Some everyday things that can help to make your lipstick last longer are; don't lick your lips, don't chew on your lips, and the less kissing you do the more the lipstick will stay on. Each time you lick or chew on your lips you are taking off some lipstick, and it won't last very long. Check your lipstick after meals if you want a fresh look and feel.

    Don't give up on making your lipstick last longer. It doesn't have to fade before your date. You can buy long lasting lipstick. You can use lip liner and foundation and powder to help keep in the color. Buy matte lipstick and apply a thin layer, or apply two for double measure. Use them all and don't worry about applying it all day, but do check it after you eat, just in case some came off.

    Hi lahy15,

    For tanned/dark skin try shades mahogany, deep plums, wine reds, almost any shade of brown, rich, dark, coffee browns flatter the skin. Avoid orange undertones in lipsticks
    Tanned skin is flattered most by a variety of true pinks.
    Hope this helps.
