Liquid lipsticks are the latest hype in makeup world nowadays. The beauty market is saturated with different liquid lipsticks of different colours and I personally can’t get enough of them.

Apply Liquid Lipstick like a Pro with These Easy Steps
Always exfoliate before applying liquid lipstick. Because liquid lipstick tends to make lips dry and it looks patchy if not exfoliated.
Things required for applying liquid lipstick like a Pro
- Liquid Lipstick of your choice
- Lip Liner
- Angled Liner Brush
- If you can create perfectly coated lips with the applicator, that’s good, however, for some who find it a bit challenging, a lip brush might work better for you. Just deposit a small amount of product on the back of your hands and dip the lip liner from there.
Outline the Lower Lip
Using the lip brush and a small amount of product, outline the lower lip first be careful not to overline it at first because you can start building up once you get the lower lip shape done. Use a thin coat of product to ensure you’re liquid lipstick won’t crack or look too heavy.
Outline the Cupid’s bow
After the lower lip has been outlined, take your lip brush up to your cupid’s bow and line them also. Don’t be in a hurry to fill in your lips, it takes a little bit of patience to create perfectly coated lips with liquid lipstick.
After outlining the Cupid’s bow, start connecting it to the lower lip by using small strokes starting on the outer corner of your lips as this tutorial shows us.
Fill it up
When you’re happy with the shape you’ve created, you can fill it in with the remaining product on your brush. For a more vivid colour, take the liquid lipstick applicator and put on another coat of colour on your lip, careful not to go over the lip shape.
Clean the edges using an angled brush and concealer. It’s important to let the liquid lipstick dry out completely as it can mix with the concealer.
These were the easy steps to follow to apply a liquid lipstick like a pro. Hope you find it useful and try these steps. Do let me know if you know any other tips to apply liquid lipstick.
