*I am in dire need of a lash fill. I’m getting one Thursday & all will look well on my eyeballs, again. So for now, just try your best to ignore the sparseness. Thanks.
I am a big fan of lipstick. I don’t wear it every single day but I love the finishing touch it can give your look, I love all the different shades and the fun it can add to your face. I’ve had a few people ask how I do my lip. I don’t do anything major, extravagant or fancy, but it works and stays on all day.
Here is my everyday quick lip tutorial:
Before I put on any of my make up, I exfoliate my lips. I use a lip exfoliator – this particular one is from elf – super affordable and works just as good as that expensive stuff.
Sometimes instead of the exfoliating stick I use an organic body scrub and lightly rub it around my lips then rinse it off. This technique is a little more rough on your skin so I wouldn’t recommend doing it daily, but it is nice for those days your lips are super dry or chapped. It smooths them out nice and fast. After exfoliating I put on either chapstick or vaseline to add some last minute moisture before I wear lipstick all day.
Then I put my face of make up on and end with lips.
I start with this Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone. I line my lips then fill the entire lip in with this pencil. Its completely transparent, so it can seem like you’re doing absolutely nothing during this step, but it really helps your lipstick stay on, stay in place and not fall outside of the lines you’ve created for your lipstick.
Then I choose my lip color and a liner that basically matches the shade. Today I chose a light mauve. Its more of a natural, dark pink, not so much a bright, bold color but I really like this shade on my pale skin and its a nice basic look that goes with any kind of outfit (todays outfit is baggy sweat pants and a loose t-shirt, so obvs I’m not going for anything dramatic and fancy).
I line my lips slightly outside of my natural lip line to make my lips just a little bit fuller, then I fill in the middles of both my top and bottom lip.
Then its lipstick time! I spend a few minutes making sure I’ve covered my entire lip, get straight lines and cover all the liner and coat it a couple times just to make sure its on there good. You can never be too sure 😉
Ta-da! All done!
See? I told you it was easy.
