How To Create a Bold Lip in 4 Simple Steps
Posted on February 22 2017
Nothing makes a statement quite like a bold lip, but we know just as well as anyone that swiping a bright pop of color on your pout can be somewhat intimidating. Never fear – we’re here to help you add some edge to your tried-and-true beauty look.
Follow these four easy tips and you’ll have a fabulously intense look – with major staying power – in no time.
1. Prep your lips. Before you start, make sure your pout is in tip-top shape. Hydrated lips will keep the color from cracking and hold it in place. Use our moisture rich Lip Primer to create a base that will smooth, define, and prime your pout for long-lasting color that won’t fade or feather.
2. Line your lips. Define your lips by using Lipliner in a rich hue that most closely matches your top color. Start at the center and then trace outwards. In this case, more is better.
3. Fill in your lips. Either fill in the rest of your lips with lipliner and then apply a layer of lipstick on top of that, or skip directly to your Lipstick of choice. We’d recommend one of our deeper colors, like Meritage, Pomegranate, or Currant. To get a more pigmented result, apply lipstick directly from the tube. Don’t have a steady hand? Use a Lip Brush for ultimate precision.
4. Blot your lips. Set your bold lip by blotting with a tissue, and add one final layer of lipstick. If you prefer a shiny finish, top it off with our sheer Lip Gloss in Crystal.
