5 Lipstick Mistakes You Need To Avoid

Lipstick is a crucial accessory for women, playing a key role in enhancing their beauty.

Despite its easy accessibility, many women struggle with its application.

Regardless of age or occasion, lipstick is a must-have to complete any look.

It is not just a final touch to makeup, but the foundation of a stunning beauty look.

The key to success lies in getting your lipstick application right.

To help with this, GhanaStreetJournal has compiled a detailed guide on common mistakes and how to avoid them.

1. You Aren’t Scrubbing Your Lips

Your lip base is just as crucial as the rest of your makeup. Avoid chapped lips with flakes, as they will result in an uneven and patchy finish. Begin by exfoliating your lips with homemade sugar scrubs or lip scrubs to remove dryness and prepare them for colour application.

2. You Aren’t Picking Yours Carefully

Not all lipsticks are created equal, so it’s important to carefully select the right colour and formula for your planned look.

Neon and light shades are ideal for daytime, while bright and dark shades can make a statement at night. Consider the lasting power of the lipstick based on the length of your day; opt for a stain for shorter periods and a matte formula for longer wear.

3. Your Lips Are Feeling Dry

Continuing on the same theme of the significance of your base, after exfoliating your lips, it is essential to keep them moisturized to prevent them from becoming chapped again. To avoid this, you can either use a clear lip balm before applying lipstick or remove it before applying the colour to prevent it from affecting the formula.

4. You Are Overlining Your Lips Too Much

Kylie Jenner’s tip of overlining the lips for a fuller look can enhance your pout slightly, but excessive overlining can result in a strange appearance, giving the impression of poor makeup application, which is definitely not desirable.

5. You’re Applying It Wrong

Proper application of lipstick is crucial, especially when dealing with liquid formulas. To ensure a smooth application, remove any excess product from the wand by wiping it on the neck of the bottle before applying a thin coat of colour.

This technique prevents the lipstick from layering too thickly, making it easier to add another coat if needed. Complete the look by neatly lining the edges of your lips.
