How To Apply Lipstick Like A Pro
To get the perfect pout and to make sure it stays, be sure to follow these easy tips and techniques for this glamorous look that lasts all day.

- Your favorite lipstick
And now, we dive directly into the tutorial.
Step by Step Tutorial – Apply Lipstick Perfectly
Step 1: Prep Your Lips
This is the first and foremost step, and I can not focus on what is sufficient – preparation is the key! You do not want to walk with dry and chapped lips. Exfoliate with a soft, moist, moistened toothbrush by applying a nourishing lip balm to make these lips soft, supple and healthy. You can apply a lip stain after the color has passed longer and prevented it from bleeding.
Step 2: Apply A Base
If you are concerned about any kind of discoloration or uneven lip color, it is essential that your lipstick has a base to hang on. This is to make sure that your lipstick does not flow into your lips. Choose a corrective shade that matches your lip color and type a little with a flat brush or a fluffy brush. Apply a little compact on it to seal the base. This also allows your lipstick color to stay longer.
Note: The M.A.C Prep + Prime Base is an excellent option and is also recommended by professional makeup artists.
Step 3: Use A Lip Liner
To define your natural lipstick and to prevent your lipstick from becoming messy, use a good lips to define, reshape and perfect the contours of the lips. This way, you will get a more precise, precise and polished appearance.
Trace your natural lip line from corner to corner with a lining that complements your skin tone to avoid feathers (it sometimes depends on matching it with the lipstick you decide to wear). To make the bow of the cupid more important, create an ‘X’ shape on your upper lip, just below the cupid’s bow.
Do not worry if the lines inside are slightly imperfect because the lipstick will cover them anyway – but these are the outside lines that matter.
Note: Use a coating that has a moderately smooth texture for easier application. I love the Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Liners that come in beautiful shades.
Step 4: Apply the Lipstick
Once you have completed all the steps above and choose your lipstick, take a product on a lip brush and apply it evenly on your lips. Do not miss the inside corners. Make sure to apply it to the corners of your lip liner. Repair by coat and intensify the color as you wish. Usually, a good coat of a quality lipstick will suffice.
Note: If you have dry lips, you may not want to use matte lipstick as they tend to dry your lips even more. Look for the moisturizing lipstick that also conditions your lips.
If your lips are on the thinner side, avoid using very dark colors as they tend to make the lips smaller.
Step 5: Add Definition
Use a small corrective brush and work on your edges to correct the shape of your lips. This is optional, but if you want to give your lips a pouty look, you can add a subtle hint of gloss.
Now that you have a basic idea of preparing your lips and perfectly applying the lipstick, let’s cover a few other essential ideas that you can use.
How To Apply Lipstick Without Lip Liner
In case you do not have lips in your makeup box, do not worry as there is a secret to perfectly applying the lipstick without using lining.
Step 1: Use Your Finger
Rub your finger into the lipstick color of your choice and press that finger directly onto your lips moving along the natural line of the lips. This way you get unlined accuracy.
Step 2: Finish The Look
For the inside of your lips, finish by applying the color either directly from your tube of lipstick, or using a lip brush.
