In today’s Tip Tuesday, I wanted to share a tip with you that helps me make my bold lip colors look more “natural.” If you have ever applied lipstick (especially bright ones), you probably have noticed that sometimes it can look thick. If you apply more than one layer, it can even look goopy on the lips. To prevent this, I normally apply lipstick right out of the tube, build it up to my desired intensity, and then go over my lips with a finger. I basically use one of my fingers to smooth out the lipstick. If I have only applied a thin layer of lipstick, this gives the lips a stained appearance. Take a look at the pictures below to see the difference.
My camera isn’t the best quality, so you might not be able to see much difference, but it makes a big difference in person.
What are your techniques for making your lipstick look perfect?
