Lip Makeup

Lipstick provides the final touch to your makeup; without it no look is complete.For a perfect result, you will need a steady hand, some practice, the correct implementats and a knowledge of the correcting techniques.

What You Would Need?
A narrow, flat ended brush, a selection of finely sharpened lip pencils, lipgloss and lipstick(either the conventional tube lipstick or the cream type with a sponge-tip applicator.If your lip colour is uneven, then you will need a special lip base or balancer-use a lighter tone on the dark areas and a dark tone on the light areas.These balancers also form a base for lipstick and help to keep the colour of the lipstick pure and clear.

Makeup Technique
Outlining With Lip Liner:Before outlining the lips check that your lips are smooth and grease free.Use a sharp lip liner pencil in a shade close to that of your lipstick colour and with a steady hand, lightly outline the lips.For the upper lip, start at the centre and work out, towards the corner of the mouth.For the lower lip, work from side to side.

Priming The Lips With A Lip Balancer:Fill in the lips with a special base or balancer to even out the skin tones.If your lips are of an even colour, use a face powder as a base.

Filling Up With Lipstick:Using a lip brush, fill in the colour.For the upper lip start at the center and work outwards.On the lower lip work from side to side.Don't pile up too much colour.It is much easier to add more later than to remove any excess.

Blotting Off:Fold a clean tissue and place it between your lips.Press the lips lightly together to remove the excess colour and to help seal the remainder, so that it stays on the lips rather than moving onto every glass you use.

Final Lip Gloss Application:Finally finish with a lip gloss to get a gleaming look.However, women with extra-full lips, should use lip gloss very sparingly.
