8 Lipstick Rules You Must Follow

Lipstick is every girl’s best friend – especially when we’re posing and pouting for the perfect selfie! No matter where we are going or what we are wearing or whatever the occasion is, wearing a lipstick never goes wrong. Nevertheless, there are some rules that one must keep in mind before gliding that colour on your lips. To celebrate National Lipstick Day today, I bring you some lipstick rules you must follow.

Rule #1 – Exfoliate-exfoliate-exfoliate

Treat your lips just how you would treat your face or skin. Make it a point to exfoliate your lips with a lip balm before applying lipstick on them. Repeat this regime daily.

Rule #2 – Less is more

It is wise to highlight only one feature of your face. If you are going for bold lips, then keep the rest of your face make-up minimal to get that perfect balance.

Rule #3 – Say no to glitter

“Shimmer can look cheap,” says New York city based make-up artist Troy Surratt. “Look for lipsticks with a creamy finish.” Totally agree!

Rule # 4 – Prime time

Using a primer before wearing lipstick is a must as it not only gives the lipstick shade a better colour contrast but also helps your lipstick last longer (psssttt…. you don’t have to keep re-applying it!).

Rule # 5 – Line it up

They say, a lip liner can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. In either case a lip liner has a significant role in achieving that perfect pout. So find the right lip liner for you–probably a shade closest to your lips–and outline your lips first, then wear lipstick. This will define the shape of your lips.

Rule # 6 – Start from the middle

Start your lipstick applying session from the centre of your lips and then spread outward with the help of lip brush.

Rule # 7 – Blotting works

Patting your lips with a tissue or blotting paper comes handy when you need the shade to look deeper and last longer. Wear a lipstick and use blotting, then give it another go with a second coat. This will also add shine to your lips.

Rule # 8 – Remove it

Always remove your lipstick before hitting the bed. Scrub your lips, then use a lip balm or a moisturizer. This process will leave the soft and lips hydrated.
