Doing a makeup routine is a holy ritual for every woman who wants to look on point before she leaves her home and starts her day. Every single step of what you put on your face and how you do it is important and together they give you the finishing result: the eyes, brows, cheeks, and the whole face altogether. However, the finishing and most effective step is certainly the way you do your lips. How you put makeup on your lips will lock the look, so we can say it is essential to do it the right way. Here are the steps and some more details to pay attention to.
Step 1: Exfoliate and moisturise your lips
This step is actually what you should do at the very beginning of applying the makeup on the whole face. You need to make sure that your lips are soft, smooth and exfoliated so that all there is no ugly and painful scaling of the skin on the lips. To achieve this you need to apply lip balm every day, especially at night when you go to bed. In this way, you will keep the lips moisturised and smooth all the time so when you begin your makeup ritual you won’t have a lot of exfoliating to do.
If you want to do a complete natural exfoliation of the lips you can mix 2 teaspoons of sugar with 1 teaspoon of honey. Apply this mixture on the lips, massage them and leave them for about 10 minutes. Then remove with water. Or, you can use your favourite lip balm and your toothbrush. You just need to apply a thick layer of the lip balm on your lips and with a clean toothbrush, you should gently brush your lips in circles.
Step 2: Plump Your Lips
If you want a beautiful, sexy pout, this should be your next step. Forget about the lip fillers, and buy yourself natural lip plumper that will make your lips fuller, bigger and more sensual than ever. The natural lip plumper will make your lips plumped in just a few minutes and if you use the best plumping products by Dreamweave brought to you by Neveya Cosmetics, you can achieve permanent results. They can be used in a period of 30 days regularly which will boost the collagen about 20%, making the lips permanently bigger, in a completely painless way. No more needles, bleeding and excessive swelling, just fuller, sexier lips.
Step 3: Contour the Lips with a Lip Liner
Once your lips are bigger, continue with contouring them with a lip liner. Define the lips and corners of the mouth by drawing the line directly on the outer lines of the lips. Don’t go further than the outside lip line as your lips won’t look bigger – they would look like they are forced to be bigger. Plus, the lipstick/gloss might be run across the outside lip area, a look which is can be a real eyesore.
Step 4: Apply Your Favourite Lipstick or Lip Gloss
Start applying your favourite lipstick or lip gloss onto your lower lip, starting from the centre of the lip. For better precision, you can use a lip brush. When you are done with the lower lip, continue with the upper lip. Use the side edge of the brush to do the corners well. An old trick for long lasting results is to use a tissue paper to blend the colour into your lips. However, this trick won’t work if you are applying lip gloss or a shimmering lipstick, as it might smudge the colour and the effect would be lost.
