Since bold lipsticks tend to be very saturated, here are some tips to applying them as well as removing them.
- First, make sure your lips are exfoliated. You can make an at home sugar scrub with brown sugar and Vaseline.
- Apply a good base: Take some of your face powder or foundation and dab it lightly over your lips. This evens out the tone of your lips
- Use a lip liner: If you don’t have a lip liner the same shade as your lipstick, a neutral liner will work just fine. Lining your lips will help prevent the lipstick from feathering.
- Apply one coat of your lippie, blot your lips then reapply. This gives the color staying power.
We hope we’ve inspired you to experiment and have some fun with bold lipsticks this summer.
