Applying Lipstick

Photobucket
I love lipstick. LOOOOVE it! But there is kind of an art and process to applying it that I don't think everyone knows. So I'm going to share with you my lipstick applying process. If you stick to these steps it will last all day!

I love your tutorials! Especially when they involve makeup. I'm pretty basic in my makeup selections so any fun tips are always appreciated!

this is so helpful! i've tried different methods, but i think colored lipstick just doesn't look good on me. hahaha! plus, when i wear it i forget i am and then i smudge it all over everything. hahahaha! maybe with your expert tips I'll have better luck?!

lip liner. I've never bought it so I am intimidated on what color am I to get? The same exact color of the lipstick? Ahh i wished you were here to help me lol
And I highly recommend posh's lip scrubs...so yummy. I mean, they make lips soft ;-)

What lip moisturizer do you recommend? I have a bad addiction to Chapstick that actually does the opposite of moisturizing your lips! :(

Ahhh the lip liner step - so important! It's something I've only begun doing recently. I find putting a bit of foundation on your lips before applying lipstick helps it last longer too.

I had never heard of that trick with your finger, so handy!

Love this! I adore lipstick as well and, 9 times out of 10 I just put it on straight out of the tube. What are your thoughts on the whole "dusting with loose powder" trick? Does that work?

Janette said...

So you lined the lip with a different color? Like a basic nude???? What the heck!?? All those years G! I can never get them back... lol You're probably shaking your head at my most recent IG pic.. It's all lip.. Oh gosh.. You're gonna judge me! Better go delete it.. LOL


Hey Mandie! Thanks for visiting my blogaroo! I really love the way that you organized this year recap! Looks like you had a blessed year indeed!

ha, i totally don't apply lipstick the right way :P i think my lips need a good exfoliating, though. looks like it feels nice!

Jessica Wray said...

I remember my grandma taught me that finger trick. I've used it ever since!

Jessi said...

Thanks for the tips! I never line mine. I should try it, it'd probably help it stay longer :) What color did you use to line? Just nude it looks like?

I LOVE lipstick but it never lasts more than a few hours! This helped a lot, thanks!

Nicole said...

I love this! I'm definitely a tinted chapstick girl because I'm terrified of lipstick... but I'm thinking that maybe I'll have to try this application out! Love you, girl!! xo

Stephanie said...

yay thank you for this!

Alyssa May Edwards said...

I definitely need to try exfoliating before applying my lipstick...I never realize how dry my lips are until putting a color on them! haha

xoxo,

I thought I was the only one doing the finger move! haha I think I read it in a Cosmo mag a long time ago. This is awesome, and you are adorable.

Alynne Leigh said...

LOVE this.

It's like you could read my mind, that I had no idea what I was doing. ;)

sherri said...

Haha I know she should have a blog! I used to use chictopia but I don't keep up!

Elle - The Violet Reaction said...

love this! I've always been scared to use lip liner but I may have to try because I get so frustrated with my lip stick wearing off so quickly. thanks for sharing your tips :).

sweet harvest moon said...

Thank you for sharing! I will try this!

Claire said...

love the pulling finger through lips tip :) I wear lipstick all the time or my lips feel dry, so its like lip salve to me! x

Jenny said...

I've never tried the part where you pull your finger through your lips, but I will have to now...there is nothing worse than having lipstick on your teeth and not knowing it!!
