THE FINAL TOUCHES:
Whether you’re looking to optimize or expand your lipstick collection, finalize your luscious kisser with these effective add-ons:
• After selecting a shade, see how it looks by trying it on when your face is makeup-free.
• Let your lips take center stage by going easy on the eye makeup.
• To prevent your shade from smearing, outline your lips with foundation.
• Define your color with a lip pencil to shape, line, and fill your selected shade.
• Plump up your lips by applying a gloss to make the look velvety smooth, with a shimmery finish.
• Avoid pastiness by carrying a plain lip balm, such as Carmex or Blistex, to nourish and soften your lips’ edges.
Although these tips help, to know how to use makeup, you must dare to use it. For starters, find visuals on sites like Pinterest and Instagram, as well as tutorials on YouTube. Vamp up your appearance by experimenting with new cosmetics, hairstyles, and wardrobe choices. Discover which looks suit your style. Be courageous enough to pamper yourself and play around. Have fun being beautiful!
