How to Apply Lip Gloss step by Step

| March 2, 2013 | 1 Comment

Lip gloss is applied in a different way than lipstick because it can be wiped easily and does not stay long. With proper technique you can enhance your lips and look attractive. Choosing the right brand and lip color is important because it impacts the final effect after applying on the lips.

Prepare the lips

The first step is to cleanse the lips and massage them well. Exfoliate is also recommended because it removes dead skin cells and replaced them with fresh new ones. Now apply a lip balm or lip moisturizer to avoid dryness. Chapped lips look so awful and applying gloss does not give desired effect on them. So, apply a generous amount of moisturizer or lip oil, balm and absorb it completely. It serves dual purposes. First, it keeps lips moist and healthy. It also helps gloss stick nicely to the lips and stay longer.
Draw the outline

With the help of a lip pencil, carefully draw an outline. Start from the center of upper lips area and move to the right direction, then cover the other half and lower lips. Carefully follow your natural shape and draw crease according to that. It should not go beyond the line or drawn inward. The purpose of outline is to stay in shape and give desired effect.

Applying lip color

When you are done with the outline, it’s time to put the real lip color .Grip gloss in your right hand firmly and swipe it on the lips. Cover upper lips first and then lower lips. Try to stay within the crease to make perfect shape.

Apply several strokes to cover it completely. Darker and lighter shades depend upon the number of applications. To give a richer effect, apply several coats one on the other. Let the first layer get dry, then add another layer. Keep moving your lip gloss wand gently but continually until all area is completely covered. Don’t touch your lips or fold them while applying the gloss.

Neutral shades are more in trend but you can apply any color that goes well with your outfit. Consider eye makeup as well to give nice and attractive look.
