Lip Slips to Avoid

From deep plum vampy lips to a classic red lip, pigmented lipsticks all have one slight disadvantage… feathering and smudging. With the humid weather in Pakistan taking a toll on our makeup routine, don’t fret to wear a bold lip! Oil-prone skin and hot weather conditions are the main reasons for lipstick feathering.

Contemporary dark hues come in velvety matte formulas to high-shine glossy textures, while any complexion can rock a bold lip it’s extremely necessary to avoid your lipstick from bleeding past your lip line. Feathering occurs when a lipstick settles into fine lines on the lips or doesn’t stay within your natural lip line.

Here are some techniques to help your lipstick stay in place.

  • Blot Blot & Blot Some More
Extra product on your lips will allow more color to feather past your lip line. Blotting your lipstick will allow the lip color to adhere on the lips and prevent it from bleeding past your lip line. Simply take a clean tissue and place it on your lips then gently press to absorb any excess moisture from your lips. Avoid blotting too forcefully since you don’t want to wear off your lipstick.

  • Lining your Lips
Create a barrier between your natural lip line from your skin, using the Lip Artist Lip Liner will help your lipstick stay in place even though the heat.
Use a lip pencil that matches the natural color of the lips to line and completely fill in the lips. This base helps hold lip color in place. Layer lipstick on top.

  • Powder Up
Dust your lips with a translucent powder to set your lipstick, then re-apply a second layer of lipstick. Using a bit of powder or blush patted on top of lipstick will keep it on longer by reducing excess moisture from feathering past your lip line.
