Lips are the major attracting part of the entire face but due to the climatic changes our lips go chapped and dry. It looks pale and lifeless sometimes. Lips are the sensitive part of our skin. And in the monsoon season our lipstick cannot be less taken care off. It's that time of the year, where extra care needs to be taken, as lips are easily prone to dryness.
EeYuva doles out some tips on how to take care of your lips this season for a long-lasting lipstick look.
Step 1: Exfoliate
First, you need to grab the old toothbrush and scrub your lips and say goodbye to your chapped lip. Because, by exfoliating the lips, you are able to neutralize lip discolouration and get rid of those pesky dark spots and impurities. Exfoliating the lips lifts the dead skin, and it helps to fade the darker areas that linger around your mouth.
Step 2: Moisturize
Applying lip balm is the most important step. Before going to clean your face you need to apply lip balm to your lips. Because it helps to moisturize your lips and protect your lips.
Step 3: Apply A Liner
The third step is to apply a liner. Outline your lips with a lip liner as that works as a border and prevents your lipstick from smudging and helps it stay in place. Fill in your lips entirely with the lip liner for the extra long-lasting effect.
Step 4: Apply With A Brush
Sliding the lipstick over your lips in one stroke won’t make your lipstick stay longer. Use a lip brush to dab on colour first on your lips. Make sure to fill the edges properly and move towards the centre. The brush allows the lipstick to blend in seamlessly into your lips and increases its absorption and retention to make lip shade long-lasting.
Step 5: Blot And Dab
The tissue trick is an ultimate weapon to your lips to retention the lipstick. After applying your lipstick, take one half of the tissue and press it between your lips. This will help to absorb all the excess uneven pigmentation.
