Lipstick Mistakes-When it comes to makeup, lipstick is THE essential product. Sometimes you don’t even need more than a little kohl/liner and one swipe of your favorite lip color, and you’re all set to walk out the door.
You may think that you have an excellent lipstick game because you just have been doing it for a long time now. But what if I tell you’ve been doing it wrong all along? Scroll on to find out the lipstick mistakes you probably are doing right now.
8 Common Lipstick Mistakes
Mistake #1: Layering Chapped Lips
Mistake #2: Ignoring Exfoliation
Mistake #3: Undermining The Liner
Lip lining before applying lipstick is an absolute must. It not only makes the outlines of your more defined but also helps your lipstick last longer.
Mistake #4: Too Much Lip Liner
As I mentioned in the above point, I stand by lip lining before applying color, but just like any other right thing in the world, too much of it can cause mayhem. After all, you don’t want full coverage of lip liners, or else what is the point of buying those expensive lipsticks in the first place?
Mistake #5: Too Intense Lip Color
Your lip liner must match your lipstick, or should be in the vicinity of shade or two darker if you’re good at blending the two of them up nicely. But, if you’re going for a dark brown lip liner with your rose-red lipstick shade, you’re most likely to end up looking like Cruella from 101 Dalmatians. We don’t want to scare cute puppies, now, do we?
Mistake #6: Carelessly Picking The Lip Shade
Trust me, I love the subtle shade of baby pink as much as the next girl, but if it doesn’t look good on my lips with my olive skin tone, then what’s the point of putting it on. Makeup is supposed to enhance my beauty not the opposite. Just like your foundation shade, your lipstick shades choices too should be very considerate of your skin tone.
Mistake #7: Overdoing
Makeup in general, when overdone, draws attention but for all the wrong reasons. It can give people a false impression of your personality, which is conflicting because we use makeup and our clothing to express ourselves, showing off who we are as a person. It makes you appear as if you’re trying to hind behind the layers of makeup.
