How to Apply Lip Liner, Lipstick and Lip Gloss

Practical Steps

1.

The following items from our Makeup Kit will be used: Lip liner, Translucent Powder, 10 Color Lip Palette- Bright, Lip Gloss, 316 Lip Brush

2.

Take your lip liner pencil and begin to line the lips on the upper or lower lip, taking the line outwards to the corners of the mouth. Repeat this at the top or bottom as well.

3.

Take the same lip liner and gently fill in the lips with it.

4.

Take your 126 Powder Brush and apply your HD Translucent Powder onto the lips. The powder acts as a holding base for the lipstick, ensuring that it stays on longer.

5.

Take your lipstick brush and wipe it over your chosen lipstick color. Apply it all over the lips. For daytime, matte finish lipsticks are best to use whereas for night time, glossy or shiny lipsticks work well.

6.

Pat another layer of HD Translucent Powder over the lipstick.

7.

Finally, take your lip gloss tube and apply either a colored lip gloss or light pastel shade over the lipstick.

Please Note the Following

1.

For thin lips, you must work on increasing the size of your upper as well as lower lip. You can do this by creating a gentle curving line.

2.

If your upper lip is thinner than your lower lip, balance the curve of your upper lip to create an even and full look.

3.

For thin lower lips, you should extent the lower lip curve to even out the difference in size between the lips.

4.

For full lips in the center that taper sharply at the corners, you can extend the sides of both lips while minimizing curving towards the corners.

5.

For lips with narrow corners and full lips in the center, it is called a Cupid’s bow. The best way to apply lip liner is to widen the sides of your lower and upper lips until they are balanced.

6.

For small mouths, you should build the sides of your lips and extend the corners of your mouth.

7.

For very large, luscious and full lips, ensure that you keep the lipstick inside the lip to create a clean and sharp look.

8.

Should the lips droop on the corners, you must build the sides of the upper lip and extend the corners of the mouth.

9.

Choosing the right shade of lipstick is half the battle. When you combine your great choice in color with the knowledge of correcting your lip shape, you can master the art of applying lip liners, lipstick and lip gloss.
