How to Apply Liquid Lipstick Correctly

Almost every woman has heard of liquid lipstick. This is because of the excellent results that it offers in the form of intense, long-lasting color and a shiny finish.

However, despite its prolonged effects, it can be tricky to use. There are times when some people have had a bad experience using liquid lipstick.

But that doesn’t mean you should give up. For best results, it’s important to know how to apply liquid lipstick the right way. Here are 3 liquid lipstick tips from the best in the business:


1: Use a Sugar Scrub to Deal with Flakes

In order to maximize hydration, your lips should be exfoliated so as to provide proper penetration. Mix sugar and coconut or olive oil and rub them on your lips. Now massage the mixture in a circular manner using your finger for about 30 seconds and then remove it with a towelette.

2: Prepare Your Lips Using Pencil

It’s best to use a lip pencil in order to line and also fill in the lips. One benefit is that it does not allow the product to settle in between the lines. When opting for a particular lip pencil, pick one that is a color match but also is slightly lighter than your shade of liquid lipstick. This won’t show through the product when it is applied.

3: Use a Magic Wand

The doe-foot wand that you get along with liquid lipstick can be applied seamlessly. In fact, you can apply just as you would gloss. One way to do this is to start from the center of lips and spread the color outwards. For a sharp outline, dab a lip brush on the wand and just follow the natural movement of your lips so as to create a natural line.
