Whether you apply light or heavy makeup, lipstick gives it the final touch and enhances the entire look. Lip liners give a perfect shape to the lips. With some tips on how to apply lipstick, you will be able to give a perfect finishing touch to your make up. Colouring your lips will help you complement your make up, undoubtedly. You have to take care of the colour, the shape and the manner in which it stays for the daylong. Although almost every woman applies lipstick, very few of them know exactly how to apply it in the right way.

Tips to Apply Lipstick Perfectly

  • Choose the right colour of your lipstick. It is better to select the colour that complements your skin tone and a little darker shade will help you do that. Choose matte finish for a day make up and satin and gloss finish for the evening make up.
  • Apply other make up first because lipstick is the last thing to apply. After finishing your entire make ups, you can put on the lipstick and the lip liner.
  • You can dab a little of petroleum jelly or any lip balm so that your lips get some moisture prior to applying lipstick.
  • Choose a lip liner that has a bit darker shade than the lipstick and apply through the outline of your lips.
  • Now you can apply the lipstick either with the help of a strong lipstick brush or with the tube itself. Make sure you coat the lips with the lipstick evenly and pay attention so that they do not ever touch outside of the lips and the edges.
  • Blot the lips with the tissue or blotting paper so that if there is any extra lipstick, it will get wiped away giving the lips a perfect finish.

How to Choose and Apply the Right Lipstick that Lasts

  • When you are choosing the colour of the lipstick, you should first decide whether you want stress on your lips more or not. There are times when eye make up is done with the intention of catching attention through the eyes. So, if you are paying more attention to highlight any other part of your face, keep the colour of the lipstick lighter.
  • If your lips are plump up naturally, apply the lip liner to just outline your lips. You can even leave your lips naturally by applying a little bit of gloss to the lips.
  • Applying liner before lipstick will not only give it a perfect look, it will also help the lipstick last longer.
  • When using light lipstick, choose the liner with just a bit darker shade and do not go for very dark ones.
  • When using a glass to drink water or any other drink, lick your lips so that your lipstick does not get wiped or discolored.
There is no single rule as to how you should apply lipstick. Just keep in mind the tips and you will be able to apply them perfectly. Make sure you choose the right colour that matches with your entire makeup and complements your styling and personality. The colours are also chosen paying attention to the time of the day and type of occasion you are going to attend. You can now have a feminine look with an added charm of your beautiful and attractive smile.

Comments:   Lipstick and eyeliner are must to have for all the girls. Lipstick and eyeliner really help to enhance the beauty of women. Therefore at least women should use both while doing a makeup or just lip balm or kajal to enhance beauty

Comments:   I like to use lipstick occasionally. It is not good to use lipstick regularly as it may spoil the lips. Therefore, women should make less use of lipstick. If you use lipstick occasionally people will find something different in you otherwise it will repetitive. Also it does not look good to carry lipstick all the time on face. I prefer less and decent makeup on special occasions.
