Tutorial: How I Put on Lipstick

Hello ladies!

I will be sharing tips on how I put on lipstick. I got into using lipstick when I was in college. I had to give my lips color since they are chapped, dry and dark. I don't smoke but my lips are so dark that I had to do something. Since then it became a huge part of my life, especially when I am going out.

The products that I have are from the coral and pink family. I don't own anything that is out of the ordinary, I stick to colors that will flatter me and will fit my skin tone. I have posted something about my lipstick collection here. The products that I have in my collection are more on local brands because I love the formula of the local brands, especially Ever Bilena.

So here are the steps on how I put my lipstick on.

(you could also exfoliate your lips first to prevent chapped & dry lips using a soft tooth brush or a mixture of petroleum jelly and sugar)

1. First I put lip balm on to keep my lips moist. (I love the Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Smoothing Cherry)
2. I then pick a color that suits my mood or my blush. (for darker eyes wear nude or lighter shade of the lipstick. If you want a bold lip color, keep the rest of your makeup light)
3. I start from the left side of my lip and then the right.

4. I then put one swipe on the bottom lip.
5. If I wanted a bolder color I do a second swipe.
6. Put a piece of tissue in between the lips to remove excess product.

Here are some corrective techniques for specific lip shapes:
