How to get the perfect bold lips
#Step 1: Prep
Like the rest of your face, prep your lips before applying any color. Gently exfoliate and follow up with a lip balm. Trust us; cracked lips are a disaster when it comes to bold lips! Plus, it is so much better to apply lipstick when yours lips are well moisturized.
#Step 2: Get the color right
Apply a concealer or foundation first and then follow up with the lip color.
#Step 3: The application
We always recommend using a lip brush while applying bold colors. The worst mistake is smudging of colors and as we know, heavy pigmented lipsticks tend to bleed a lot. So, draw a perfect outline using the brush and then fill in. Now blot, dab a little loose powder, dust and then, re-apply. It’s good to go for atleast three layers. This way, your lipstick stays longer and you won’t have to worry as much for touch-ups.
Lastly and importantly, use a concealer around the corners of your lips to hide any imperfections and to make your lips pop even better. Voila! Hello, perfect bold lips!
