The Secrets of Successful Lip Colour

L

ips are one of the most important features on a woman’s face. They can make or break a look, and they often attract attention. For this reason, it is essential to know how to get the perfect lip colour for your skin tone and style.

When it comes to finding the perfect lip colour, there are a few things you need to consider with the first being your skin tone.

If you’re not sure what your skin tone is, discuss this with a makeup artist or try consulting a colour wheel or even a Google search can provide lot’s of help!

The Best Ways To Get Perfect Colour

f you have fair skin or lighter tone, you will likely avoid dark colours as they can produce a washed out look. Instead, opt for shades like pink or coral which are less likely to contrast with your skin tone. On the other hand, if you have olive skin or a darker tone, you can certainly go for richer and deeper hues such as plum or berry.

The next thing to consider is the type of lipstick formula or finish that you need. There are three main types: matte, satin, and glossy. Matte lipsticks are generally long-wearing and have a velvety finish. Satin lipsticks are designed to be moisturising and have a semi-matte finish. Glossy lipsticks are usually hydrating and have a high-shine finish.

Choose the lip colour formula based on your desired look and feel.

Now it’s time to choose your colour. If you’re going for a natural or under-stated look then stick to colours which are a close match to your natural lip colour. If you are looking for something more dramatic and want to make a statement, you can’t go past the brighter shades.

Experimenting with a range of different colours and finishes is a great way to find what works best for you, and who doesn’t love having options?

With some go-to colour and finish combinations with numerous others available you can transform your look and style to any number of new effects, or stick with a tried and tested formula when you need a reliable option.

The type of lipstick you choose is also very important and can be the difference between mediocre and amazing! If you’re a professional or want a professional result, then look for a product that has a reputation and can deliver the best results. Cheap lipsticks are easy to find and tempt with lots of shades but if you want to stand-out, treat yourself to a more expensive brand that uses better ingredients and will work so much better when it matters most.

Tips for Applying Your Lipstick

ipstick is one of the most used makeup products, however many women don’t always apply it correctly. If you want to achieve the perfect lip colour, there are some key tips you need to follow.

First, be sure to use a lip liner to create a base for your lipstick and ensure that you to create the perfect contour and definition.

A similar shade of lip liner will accentuate the lipstick colour and provide the clean definition. If you want a more dramatic look, try using a slightly contrasting lip liner shade. Lip liner also helps the colour stay in place and last longer.

Next up is the lipstick itself. Apply your chosen lipstick from the centre of your lips and move outwards, following the contour you created with the lip liner. You can also opt for a lip brush to give a smoother and more precise effect.

Finally, use a tissue and blot your lips to remove excess colour and help set the lipstick. With a little practice, you will be applying your lipstick like a pro in no time!

How to Make it Last Longer!

ith our hectic lives, it’s often difficult to find the perfect long-lasting lipstick that can be worn and will last through everyday activities. Here are six tips to ensure your lip colour looks the same throughout the day:

  • Exfoliate Your Lips – be sure to use a hydrating and non-abrasive exfoliant. Your lips are delicate and sensitive!
  • Moisturise Your Lips – we recommend a moisturising lipstick or balm.
  • Use Concealer or a Lip Primer – applying a primer works as well for lipstick as it does foundation.
  • Use A Brush For Application – for the most precise look and an ultra-smooth effect you can’t beat a lip brush.
  • The Puff and Tissue Trick – place a one-ply sheet of tissue over your lips. Using a powder puff, dab the tissue with a translucent loose powder which will set the lip colour. Remove the tissue and do one more swipe of lipstick to finish.
  • Use A Setting Spray – if you feel the need, try a dedicated setting spray to set your lip colour.

Great Lipstick Equals Great Self Confidence

he secret of successful lip colour is no secret at all – no really! It’s simply knowing how to use colour and finish to your advantage.

As an example, lipstick used to hide an imperfection or blemish on your lips by applying a little concealer to the area and topping off with your favourite lipstick shade is absolutely sure to create a confident and polished look.

Lipstick can also be styled to give yourself bigger, fuller lips. Simply line your lips with a lip liner that is slightly darker than your natural lip colour. Fill in your lips with a lighter shade of lipstick and apply a clear or nude gloss to the centre of your bottom lip.

This creates the illusion of fuller lips. Applying your lipstick slightly beyond the natural outline of your lips is another way to achieve this look but is hard to get right.

As you can see, lipstick is a powerful tool that can be used to enhance natural facial features and give you added confidence when taking on the world. Next time you reach for your lipstick, remember these tips and use them to your advantage. You’ll be sure to turn heads wherever you go!

Re-apply Like A Pro

W

hen you’re out and about, it’s essential to keep your lipstick looking fresh. But how so without smudging your perfectly applied colour?

Start with a clean slate and use a lip brush to remove any colour that may have transferred onto your teeth or the skin around your lips. Then it’s just a case of applying a fresh layer of lipstick using even, sweeping strokes as you start in the centre of your lips and work your way outwards.

Once the new coat of colour is on, take a tissue and press it gently against your lips. This helps to remove any excess and give you a clean, polished look. Of course you can use your setting spray or powder if you have it with you.

And that’s it! Reapply your lip colour like a pro – no smudging or smearing required.

Now that you are ready to test out your colour selection and application skills, shop our range of lipstick products to find the perfect addition to your makeup bag.
