Women love their lipsticks and they can’t imagine stepping out of the house without wearing one. From the glam and hot reds to the pale nudes, the color will depend on the occasion and the mood, but one swipe of lip color is all that a woman needs to feel confident about herself. We are always curious to experiment with lipsticks. Here is a list of some innovative ideas that you can use to get it right with them:
How To Make The Perfect Lip Lining:
Before applying the lipstick, you must outline your lips. Let's get to know how to start a lipstick line:
Start by making an X with your lip line at your Cupid’s bow.
Tracing the outline of your lips from the top of each side of the X draw a line downwards to the corners of the mouth.
Fill the center of your bottom lip with a small line of lip liner.
Following the outline of your bottom lip, draw lip line from each side of the small line, reaching to the corners.
You are done with lip lining. Fill your favorite lip color and you are all set to rock the world.
How To Make Lipstick With Eyeshadow:
You can use your eyeshadow as your lip color if you may want to experiment with colors like green, black or blue that are hard to find in lipsticks. Just follow these steps:
Take loose or compact powder-based eyeshadow. Scoop it into a bowl.
Mash it properly and remove all the lumps with the back of a spoon
You can add a little shimmering eyeshadow to this powder if you want to get some glitter in your lip color.
Unlike lipsticks which are FDA approved and safe to use eyeshadows can be harmful if we use them on our lips as most of the eyeshadow contains ultramarines, ferric ferrocyanide, and/or chromium oxides. One should never use such eyeshadows as lip colors. You can, however, experiment if your eyeshadows contain safe iron oxides.
Make Lipstick With Petroleum Jelly And Eyeshadow Powder:
Mix lump-free fine eyeshadow powder with petroleum jelly.
Take1 tablespoon of petroleum jelly and 1 teaspoon of eyeshadow powder in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the bowl in the microwave until the mixture melts and becomes runny. Stir it thoroughly to distribute the color thoroughly.
How To Wear Blue Lipstick According to Your Skin Tone:
Blue lip color is not for the weak-hearted; only the bold risk-takers can take up this challenge. And if you are one of those, then here are some guidelines for you that will help you to know how to wear blue lipstick and get the look right:
