Ahoy! Here’s the last call for all the beauty aficionados to rule the runway with high-voltage glittery pout. We have to agree that no makeup look is complete with a little bit of glitter. Period. If you talk about filling the inner corner of your eyes, sweeping your favourite shade of highlighter or creating a full-blown glittery eye makeup, we’ve been there, done that.
Let’s do something unique and sultrier (something that can add extra pizzazz). Why not? Thinking of going that extra mile with the glitter eyeshadow palette you own? Better now than never! We are ditching the mattes, glosses and satin formulations for a futuristic spin. How about wearing your favourite lip shade and dabbing a smidgeon on the centre of that pout? Sounds very exciting.
Let’s get down to real business and decode a smart way of wearing lipsticks for that magical twinkle.
Step 1: The first and foremost step before getting started is to prep your lips. Begin by gently exfoliating your pout before applying a moisturising lip balm or your favourite lip oil. Allow the lip balm to rest and absorb into your skin for about 10 minutes or so.
Step 2: Now that you’ve prepped them, make sure you wipe off the excess lip balm with a wet tissue. Then, move on to the next step of applying a primer all over your lips. Yes, you got it right. Creating a blank canvas before you hop on to this trending makeup look is only going to even them out and deliver a better colour pay off.
Step 3: Next in line is to line and fill in your lips with the closest shade of the lip colour you’re planning to twirl in. Lining your lips is like perfecting the art. So, it’s about time you perfect this art!
Step 4: Let’s school you about the types of lipstick you would like to use. Choosing a liquid lippy over everything else will do the job. We aren’t even putting that up for a debate. ’Cause choosing the right formulation or texture is the key to achieving your desirable look. Steer clear to soft satins or glossy lipsticks. They are going to be your best pals.
Step 5: Take a very little amount of your fave lip balm and pat a smidgeon on the centre of your lips for that adhesion. This will only work like a sticking agent to keep the glitter in place. Ladies, promise that you ain’t touching the corners of your mouth as it may get very uncomfortable to take on the day.
Step 6: Now’s the time to reveal the truth. Drum Rolls! Now take the same shade of loose glitter (if not the same shade, you can opt for a contrasting shade) and slap it over your lips using a flat brush or simply use the tip of your fingers.
Heart them to your cart, ‘coz they’ll be gone in no time!
