The use of lipstick is an important part of makeup. The durability of the created contour and the lipstick itself depend not only on the brand of the product, but also on the method of its application.
Lipstick will last longer if the skin on the lips is slightly moisturized and applied over the base.
For a moisturizer, you can use a lip balm or a light textured face cream. It should be applied to the lips and wait a few minutes for it to be absorbed, and then you need to blot your lips with a dry napkin to remove excess oil. This operation must be done in order not to dry out the skin and the color remains persistent for a long time.
The primer that you decide to use for the lips should be either special-purpose or for sensitive skin. Otherwise, the result can be disastrous: instead of the expected successful makeup, you can get allergies. At the end of this step, you need to lightly blot your lips with a napkin.
In order for the lips to acquire the correct shape or visually increase in size, you need to circle them with a contour. The color of the contour should be one tone higher than the color of the lipstick, and the colorless contour is used to add volume to the lips. The line should be finished smoothly, it is better not to paint over the corners of the mouth with a contour.
Lipstick needs to be painted on the lips inside the contour and smoothly blend with a brush, moving from the edges of the lips to the middle.
A good result can be obtained only by following the procedure for applying cosmetics and choosing the appropriate colors. The color selection is carried out taking into account the color of the skin, hair, eyes, as well as the age of the woman and the shape of her lips.
