Ever wonder how some people can apply lipstick so perfectly that it almost seems like they stepped right out of a magazine cover? If you have, then you’re not alone. No worries, though; most people who always seem to have flawless lipstick have simply mastered the fine art of applying this makeup superstar.

That’s a word I’m never going to get tired of writing or hearing. If you make sure to exfoliate your lips at least twice a week ( three if you have extremely chapped lips and live in a dry, cold climate), you will see a definite improvement in their appearance. Think about it; if you don’t have a smooth canvas ready for color, then your lipstick isn’t going to look right no matter what color you use or what you do. This is especially true for brighter shades, like red. Trust me, I’ve tried to apply red lipstick to chapped lips before and the results were just catastrophic.
For nude lips, be sure to choose the correct shade
There is a lot more to picking the perfect nude than people realize. If you’re wanting the ideal nude shade for your lips, either choose one shade lighter or one shade darker than your skin tone. Nude lips are my all time favorite lipstick color looks. I don’t know what it is, I’ve been obsessed with them for years and that adoration has not faded in any way. To me, there is nothing more perfect than a really dramatic cat-eye with gorgeous tones paired with a nude lip. It’s the ultimate chic makeup design in my opinion.
Liner is optional
Most makeup artists today are skipping the lip liner when creating looks. This is because most lipsticks now are so rich that they don’t bleed as easily as the lip products of yesteryear. However, if you do choose to use a liner ( which I still do ), you can keep things looking natural by using a liner that is the color of your lips rather than your lipstick. There is also the option of using a clear lip liner. They’re a little difficult to find, but they exist. This type of liner is perfect for liquid lipsticks, both matte and gloss.
Soften the edges and don’t forget to blot
Making the edges seem less severe will give your lip color a softer, more natural look( regardless of what color you’re using ). You can achieve this by using your fingers or by using a small lip brush. Blotting your lipstick then adding a second coat helps your color look better and last longer. It’s like adding a primer base for your top coat.
