Your Cheat Sheet For The Perfect Lipstick Application
There's no doubt that swiping a good ol' lippie can easily boost any girl's confidence Plus, a good lip color can up the ante of your beauty looks in a snap, too! While playing with different lip colors is fun, a perfect lipstick application can be a little tricky. But there's no need to stress because we're sharing with you the only tips and tricks you need to know for a perfect lipstick application to create the perfect pout.
Always start with a clean slate. To guarantee a flawless lippie application, make sure that your lips are soft and moisturized. You can exfoliate your pucker with a lip exfoliator or apply a balm first. Don't forget to blot your lips with tissue afterwards.
Know what lip formula works well on your lips. There are a lot of different types of lippies. From matte to creamy, and even stains. Matte lippies are all the rage these days, but if your lips are sensitive it can dry out your lips faster. Experiment with different bullets so you will know which formula works better for you.
Boost your lip color with a lip liner. If your eye makeup has an eye primer to make sure that the color stays longer, lipsticks have lip liners to do that. Plus, it boosts that colors of your lippies by neutralizing your natural lip color, too.
Blot, blot, blot. Blot your lips with tissue after every swipe to make the color last longer. Don't put the tissue in between your lips because this will cause your lip color to fade unevenly. Pat a tissue over your lips gently instead.
No to lipstick on your teeth. You've probably heard your mom say this once or twice already, but it's worth repeating once more. To avoid lipstick stains on your teeth, put your index finger in your mouth and gently pull it out to remove excess color.
Highlight it. Further define your lips by highlighting your Cupid's bow. You can use a handy highlighter or a trusty light concealer can do the trick, too.

I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
