Use a small concealer blush and work on your edges to correct the shape of your lips. This is optional but if you want to give your lips that pouty look, you can add a subtle hint of lip gloss.

Now that you’ve got a basic idea of prepping your lips and applying lipstick perfectly, let’s cover a few other essential ideas that you can make use of.

Method 2: How To Apply Lipstick Without Lip Liner

In case you don’t have a lip liner in your makeup box, don’t fret because there exists a secret to applying lipstick perfectly, without using a liner.

Step 1: Use Your Finger

Rub your ring finger into the lip color of your choice and press this finger directly onto your lips moving along the natural lip line. This way you achieve precision without a liner.

Step 2: Finish The Look

For the interiors of your lips, finish off by applying the color either directly from your lipstick tube or using a lip brush.

Wasn’t that simple? This trick also comes handy when you are in a rush!

Let’s look at some other simple tricks to help you achieve lipstick that is so on point.

Method 3: How To Apply Lipstick on Dark Lips

If you have dark, pigmented or discolored lips, with a few simple hacks, you can still conquer your lip color. Do not shy away from light colors or sheer pinks because these tricks do work if you just put in some effort.

Step 1: Conceal

The key here is to neutralize pigmented lips using a concealer that exactly matches your skin tone. Where there’s darkness, there’s always concealer, so it’s not odd to use one for your lips. You will be amazed at the difference it makes.

Step 2: Add Some Extra Coverage

If a little concealer wasn’t of much help, you can dot a little more of the product onto your lips till you achieve your desired effect.

Step 3: Line Your Lip

Use a lip liner that goes with the lipstick color and carefully line your natural lip line making a cross or an ‘X’ right under the cupid’s bow to enhance the shape of your lips.

Step 4: Layer The Lipstick On

Apply your lipstick in layers if required. Use a non-glossy formula for better results. Also, those have a much greater staying power than creamy or glossy lipsticks.

Now you can wear any color that you wish to!

That’s not all, we have a few other hacks for the beauties whose lips are on the smaller side.

Method 4: How To Apply Lipstick on Small Lips

If you are someone who wants to achieve a fuller look with the help of a little lipstick, read on.

There are so many cool makeup shortcuts that can grant your wishes.

Note: There are also products in the market for lip enhancing and pouting such as lip plumpers that temporarily give your lips a fuller appearance.

Step 1: Exfoliate

You could use a nourishing lip scrub or a natural sugar scrub for exfoliation. Gently massage the scrub onto your lips in slow circular motions.

Step 2: Prime

Use a primer for an even base and to increase the longevity of your lipstick.

Step 3: Line

Use a lip liner that matches your lipstick color. Refrain from using very dark colors as this will only make your lips appear even smaller.

Step 4: Highlight

Once you’ve applied your lipstick, make sure you highlight. Just like what highlighting does to your face by creating dimensions, highlighting makes your lips appear fuller.

For an added touch, use some lip gloss over your lip color. A lip gloss is a godsend for small or thin lips.

How To Remove Lipstick?

There are several ways to remove lipstick. Ideally, you can use a makeup remover that you will find in abundance in the market. I personally prefer Neutrogena’s Eye and Lip makeup remover as it does the job effectively, yet gently and Neutrogena’s products are very reliable.

We must be gentle with our lips, and while removing lipstick, we must always ensure that we don’t damage or dry out our pout in the process.

Method 1: Apply Vaseline Petroleum Jelly

Just dab some petroleum jelly onto your lips just like any lip balm, let it sit for two minutes. Use a wet wipe or a cotton ball to wipe away the lipstick. This also works for your liquid mattes!

Method 2: Use Coconut Oil/ Olive Oil

Slather on some coconut oil onto your lips which is nourishing and also one of the most natural makeup removing agents out there. With the help of a cotton ball, wipe away any product on your lips.

Method 3: Lotion

If you have nothing else available, you can try using some of your face lotion or body lotion and gently massage it onto your lips. After letting it sit for a couple of minutes, wipe it off with a cotton ball.
