It is not enough to apply a lipstick roughly to obtain perfect, enhanced and defined lips. Let’s find out all the steps to obtain perfect lips and defined and which products to apply to obtain the desired result

How to get perfect lips: the importance of the right skincare

Just as we take care of our skincare to get the most from the subsequent application of make-up, it is also important for the lips to carry out the right preparation to be able to make the application of the lipstick perfect. The key steps for lip care are:

  • Exfoliation , using a scrub to remove all skin and smooth the surface of the lips
  • Hydration , to nourish and moisturize the lips, avoiding the formation of new skin and allowing a perfect application of the successful products

Let’s see the steps in detail.

How to choose the perfect scrub for our lips

The secret for defined and enhanced lips can be found in the right preparation, starting with the removal of cuticles through daily exfoliation.

You must carefully choose the scrub and never forget this step: say goodbye to the toothbrush method, which is always too invasive and risks damaging your lips, and the use of face scrubs, which often have too large granules and are not suitable for the lips, as they contain substances that should in no way be ingested.

Prefer sugar-based formulas, which contain moisturizing components: in this way you will exfoliate your lips, not leaving them dry and dehydrated. Always remember to apply and reapply a moisturizing product for the lips, be it a lip balm, a balm or a specific mask.

Lip balm, balm or mask: the right lip moisturizer for every occasion

The hydration of the lips is the key to the duration of a lipstick: moisturized and smooth lips allow a perfect application of the product and extend its duration throughout the day.

Even when we are not wearing lipstick, for the health of our lips, we should always keep a moisturizing product in the bag. On the market we find many, in different formats and with different functions, let’s focus on the most common ones, namely cocoa butter, lip balm and lip mask .

I cocoa butter is a product that aims to nourish and moisturize the lips. We can find it both in sticks and in jars and it must never be missing in our bag! It can be reapplied throughout the day without the fear that it will be too sticky and annoying for our lips.

The lip balm , on the other hand, is a concentrate of butters and oils that has a marked repairing function. It serves, like lip balm, to nourish and moisturize but its regenerating function makes it excellent for treating dry lips. It often also contains spf, when you want to use it in daily application.

The lip mask should instead be applied on special occasions or as a beauty pamper. It gives a boost of nourishment and hydration in no time, and can be found in disposable hydrogel format – as if it were a fabric mask – or in a jar, which can be applied overnight and left on for an even more effective result.

You can choose one of these products according to your needs and the condition of your lips. Warning: before applying makeup, dab any excess product.

How to get perfect lips: makeup that enhances them

Now that you have hydrated and smooth lips, you can move on to makeup. What are the correct steps to apply lipstick in the right way?

The lip pencil revolution: why it matters

The lip pencil is part of those makeup products that are often considered superfluous, without understanding that they are indispensable. The lip pencil allows us to define the contour of our mouth in the correct way, correcting any asymmetries that we could never fix precisely with lipstick.

Lip pencil: how to choose it and how to use it correctly

You have to choose the color that is as similar as possible to that of the lipstick used, to create a homogeneous and harmonious result. It can be used in a light shade and darker, taking care not to overdo it and blend it appropriately: the 90’s effect is just around the corner.

You have to apply it in 3 points in order to draw a perfect outline: in the center of the lower lip, drawing a horizontal line and following the lower outline and on the cupid’s bow. In this way you will be able to outline your mouth in the correct way, highlighting the right volumes.

A little trick: if you want to give more volume to your lips and enlarge them, just go out slightly from the contour of your lips and then apply a slightly lighter shade in the center with a touch of gloss. This technique is suitable for use with nude shades.

Lipstick: how to apply it correctly

Now you can move on to apply the lipstick , chosen in the right texture and finish for your lips and look. Start from the center of the lips and then move towards the edges, taking care not to frustrate all the efforts for a perfect contour. To avoid smudges and discolorations, apply it with a suitable brush and then dab the color with the stick.

If you use a liquid lipstick , make sure you never take too much product and distribute it evenly on your lips. Again, get help from an external brush if the lipstick applicator is too large and impractical.

If you have followed all these steps, now your lips are perfectly made up and enhanced!
