Is time to go back to coloring your lips, because nothing like color can brighten up these forced days. And never mind if they will not be visible due to the mask, on the other hand at the moment the most important meeting occasions are those online, where fortunately it is allowed not to wear it. To kick off the color operation, the secret is to focus everything on lip colors, make-up already famous among make-up addicts, but still unknown to many women. So here’s everything you need to know about it.
LIP TINTS: WHAT ARE THEY?
These are liquid, light and impalpable, almost imperceptible colors. They have an oily consistency similar to liquid lipsticks, but compared to the latter they have the ability to “cling” to the lips more effectively, like a tattoo, so much so that sometimes they are even difficult to remove and require the use of an oily cleanser . Summarizing the pluses, we could say: long-lasting color.
Lip tints: difference between lip tints and liquid lipsticks
It’s always a question of texture. Liquid lipsticks, even non-transfer ones, have a soft, creamy consistency that is perceived by the lips, even if the result is matt. In any case, whatever your choice, it is important to have soft and cutic-free lips. That’s why rule number one is: never apply lipstick to a dry or cracked mouth. During the day, a coffee is enough to ruin the color of the lips: to keep it perfect for a long time, the watchword is hydration. In the morning, therefore, it is necessary to prepare the mouth well for the application of the tint, first with the application of a delicate scrub that eliminates the cuticles, then with a moisturizing balm, to be left on before moving on to make-up.
It is also important to apply a primer. So, after removing the balm with a disk, apply a veil of lip primer or alternatively the concealer, in order to ensure the adherence of the lip tint with a homogeneous and thin layer. If you want more coverage, after making sure that the first layer is dry, then proceed with a second pass.
LIP TINTS: HOW TO APPLY THEM
But how do you use lip dye? Like a normal lipstick, you could answer, but with some special precautions. Here are the tips to do it better.
Since the brush just extracted is always full of color, it is better to start from the center of the lower lip and then spread it up to the sides, leaving the edges empty, then proceed with the upper lip always starting from the center. When the brush is almost dry of color, the contours of the lips can be drawn with more precision, but above all without smudging.
