Tip 1: Exfoliate your lips

Sugar and honey make a good mix to exfoliate. Gently rub the surface of your lips with sugar to exfoliate and then apply honey overnight to nourish and hydrate. Plump and even lips create a polished look, especially when you are wearing a matte formula.

Tip 2: Wear your Colour

Let your face shine with the right colour which suits your skin tone. Use a good lip balm first and then apply your colour. Use orange and peachy hues in red and neutral shades for a warmer undertone. For a cooler undertone stick with a blue or purple base.

Tip 3: Trace before filling

Using a lip liner, line your lips according to the shape. Make a statement with even and precise lips. The lip liner makes it easier to fill your lips with lipstick and even helps in creating a fuller pout. Ensure that the colour of the lip liner matches the lipstick shade.

Tip 4: Enduring Lips

For extra staying power, use a small tissue on your lip and dust translucent powder over it. When you take off the tissue, it will not only turn your lipstick matte, but last longer too.
