Liquid lipsticks are fantastic and we see them in the photos of all it girls but … how to apply liquid lipstick without staining, or leaving our mouth with cracks? We tell you the five fundamental tips that you must take into account to use this makeup must.
Resists kisses, long days and looks fantastic in selfies: liquid lipstick can be our great ally but we must know the simple techniques that improve its use. Take note:
HYDRATE YOUR LIPS:
Before starting, you should always use a moisturizing balm: this will fill in the cracks and make the lipstick better impregnate. In addition, liquid lipstick can dry out the mouth and with this we avoid it.
MORE VOLUME AND MORE HIGHLIGHT::
It’s a makeup artists’ secret: if you outline your lips with a concealer and then blend it, your mouth will have a delicious fleshy effect. Then, put some highlighter in the center of your upper lip and then blend it. This will accentuate the spectacular shape of your lips.
PAINT THE LOWER LIP:
Now yes, let’s start with the lipstick. The first thing to do is fill in the lower lip. We love Superstay 24 Liquid Lipstick because it lasts up to 24 hours and feels freshly applied all day because it doesn’t crack or fade as the hours go by thanks to its micro-flex technology. Choose the shade that you like the most and with your applicator paint the corners and move the applicator outlining the lip. Give it a few strokes depending on the intensity you are looking for and wait two minutes for it to dry. A key tip: press your lips as if sending a flying kiss, in this way you remove the excess of the product and continue to the next step.
PAINT THE UPPER LIP:
We outline the same as below and fill. Wait two minutes and press your lips again. Retouch for a perfect finish: in a single pass you will have the entire surface covered, but it never hurts to correct and seal the color with an extra pass. Finally, clean blemishes with a cotton swab: moisten it with a make-up remover and rub gently to correct if it has passed. Do not rub but do it in very small steps.
NUDE SHADES: IF YOU WANT BRIGHTNESS, ADD GLOSS:
If you choose a nude tone like the adored Superstay Matte Ink un-nude Liquid Lipstick (our favorite of this line is the Philosopher tone) you can put a touch of gloss on top to generate that wet effect that we see so much in fashion magazines. Obviously, the gloss can go away but the base of this magnificent lipstick will always remain intact because it lasts up to 16 hours of an intense liquid matte finish that does not transfer! How to apply this nude lipstick? Start at the center of the upper lip and work towards the contours. Glide the lipstick all over your lower lip and wait for it to dry. Finally, slide the liquid lipstick applicator all over the lower lip.
