6 Common Lipstick Mistakes Women Make
Do you Do This?
Not every girl loves lipstick but it is important to know that lipstick has the potential to make any woman look good, especially if one chooses the right color for their skin tone. Lipstick is a girl’s best friend because it accentuates the lips and complements the entire makeup look or outfit. Applying lipstick might seem easy but there are girls who make obvious mistakes during their makeup routines.
Here are lipstick mistakes that women make without knowing:
Your lip liner is of a different shade compared to your lipstick
Don’t apply lip liner that is of a different shade compared to the lipstick. The lip liner should complement your lipstick not outdo it. Ensure the lip liner and the lipstick blend in properly while applying.
You don’t exfoliate your lips
Lipstick will not last long if you don’t exfoliate your lips, partly because your lips are dried out. Exfoliate your lips once in a while using a simple sugar scrub and toothpaste. This gets rid of dry skin on your lips.
Choosing the wrong shade for your lips
When it comes to choosing lipstick, make sure to choose the right shade for your skin and also consider the shape of your lips. Dark lipstick makes your lips look thinner and bright lipstick makes your lips looks fuller.
Applying lipstick without being keen
To save you a lot of embarrassment, be keen while applying lipstick. Lipstick on teeth doesn’t look cute at all. While applying lipstick, place your finger on the upper and lower teeth to prevent staining your teeth.
You apply lipstick immediately after applying lip balm
It is important to moisturize your lips; that we can all agree on, but don’t apply lipstick immediately after applying lip balm because your lips will end up looking glossy instead of neat. First do your make up, then in the end, apply your lipstick because by the time you are done with the make up the lip balm will have dried out a bit.
You don’t carry your lipstick
Ensure that you carry lipstick with you every time before leaving the house. You never know when you might need a brisk touch up.
