Make sure your lips are soft and smooth. If your lips are chapped, apply lip scrub first to exfoliate the dead skin cells. Don’t forget to apply lip balm and blot your lips once the lip balm has penetrated into the lips. You could also apply a concealer onto your lips, followed with a foundation of your choice.

 

#2 Apply with Care

Do not go outside the line of your lips. Applying lip liner that matches your natural lip shade will create a template for the colour and will keep the colour in line. Use a lip brush if needed. Some dark or unusual colours would apply better and look tidier with a lip brush. However, applying directly from the tube will give you the most pigmented result.

#3 Keep The Rest Subtle

Balance your bold lip colour by keeping the rest of your makeup minimal. Don’t put heavy blushes or over the top smoky eyes. Make sure your eye shadows are neutral and blended well.

#4 Care For Your Colour

Do not leave the house without carrying the lip shade. Make sure you bring back up because you need to reapply at least once to keep the colour perfect. Over time the colour will get dull, and when you eat you will lose some of the colour. Bring your most essential products with you.

#5 Be Confident
