HOW TO USE A LIP MOISTURIZING PRODUCT
Now that you know all about our best lip moisturizing products, it’s time to create an easy lip makeup look for everyday wear. Cheers to a moisturized pout!
STEP #1: SMOOTH IT OUT
When it comes to applying any lip product, it’s always smart to start with a smooth base. Kick things off with a lip scrub to slough away dead skin cells that may have built up on the surface of your pout. Finish up with a lip balm.
STEP #2: PRIME, PRIME, PRIME
Just as a face primer works wonders for giving your skin a smooth and even canvas, a lip primer does the same thing for your pout! So, swipe one on before applying your color of choice. Feel free to use a bit of concealer or foundation if you’re all out of primer.
STEP #3: LINE YOUR LIPS
Now it’s time to prep for your lipstick! If you’re worried about your lip color bleeding throughout the day, lip liner comes in handy. Be sure to use a lip liner that closely matches your lip color for a precise finish.
STEP #4: APPLY YOUR COLOR
Get ready to pack on the color! Use your moisturizing lip product of choice and a lip brush to apply a precise, even coat of color to your pout.
STEP #5: BLOT AND GO
Once your lip color is in place, it’s time to set your pout. Grab a tissue and blot your lips. Then, if a shiny finish isn't integral to your look, apply a tiny bit of translucent powder with a brush to lock your lip makeup in place. Voila!
