Some girls just love shiny and glossy lips – and lip gloss is their best friend! But excessive lip gloss can have a sticky effect. So today we will show you how to perfectly use a lip gloss to get beautiful, pouty, kissable lips.
How is Lip Gloss applied? Things you need:
- Lip scrub
- Lip Balm / Lip Conditioner
- Lip Liner
- Lip Gloss
Follow these 6 simple steps to apply lip gloss perfectly.
Step 1: Prepare your lips
Begin by preparing your lips. If you have dead skin cells or dotted/cracked lips, then scrub your lips before you start prepping. Massage the lip screw over your lips for about two to three minutes. Rinse it off.
Step 2: Soften your lips
The next step is to use a lip balm or lip balm to get rid of the dryness. It will make your lips softer and supple. Allow lip balm to rest on lips for about one to two minutes.
Step 3: Expose the excess lip balm
When you are done applying the lip balm, take a tissue and just the excess. This prevents lipstick from bleeding and makes the application of the other products easier.
Step 4: Draw a line with a lipstick
Begin by analyzing your lip shape. Use a lipstick of the desired color, start the application from the center of the upper lip and follow the natural lip line to the corners of the lip. Follow the same procedure with the lower lip. You can also fill the entire lip with the same lipstick as it acts as a good base and helps the lip color stay longer. See the picture above.
You can also apply a small piece of foundation/concealer in the shade that matches your natural lip color. This would even out the lips at once and provide a smooth base to work on.
Step 5: Apply lipstick
Now it’s time for the lipstick. Apply the lipstick with a short-stroke lip brush and fill the entire lips. Using a brush while applying lipstick gives greater precision to the application. Here I have used a bright red lipstick.
Step 6: Apply lip gloss
Start applying lip gloss from the center of the lips and pull the sponge applicator along the length of the lips. Avoid applying the gloss above the natural lip line. You can expose excess lip gloss on a tissue paper. This prevents the color from bleeding.
