3 easy steps to rock a black lipstick
You can wear black lipstick without looking like you are off to Halloween party.
It is important to tone the makeup down as your lips is the main focus here. All you need is mascara and eyeliner and blush. These three steps will guide you on how to rock the black lipstick without looking like a member of the goth subculture:
1. Prep your lips
You want your lipstick lasting all day and not having any form of crack bits or having to reapply after every 30 minutes. For you to achieve this, it is important that you exfoliate with a lip scrub or you can make yours by mixing honey and sugar together and apply on your lips then scrub it gently.
Scrubbing your lips not only helps to get rid of dead cells, it also makes the lips smooth. Right after this process, the next thing is to moisturize the lips with a lip balm.
2. Apply a lip liner
The function of primer to foundation is the function of lip liner to lipsticks. Lining the lips helps your lips stay in place and also make the lipstick last long with reapplication. For those with thin lips, applying a lip liner also give you fuller lips.
3. Apply the lipstick
After applying your lip liner, apply your lipstick with a lip brush and smack your lips. Reapply again and then dust you lips with a translucent setting powder, this process will help to absorb the excess lipstick. If you want a glossy finish, you can apply a lip-gloss.
