You spend all that time to pick out the perfect shade of lipstick, finish your entire makeup, and go to the party. Unfortunately, you look in the mirror and find that your lipstick has bled on your teeth. Not a great sight! So, how to prevent lipstick from getting on your teeth? Follow some simple steps to prevent a lipstick disaster.
Now that you know the different ways to prevent lipstick from getting on your teeth, here is a step-by-step procedure on how to apply lipstick properly so that it will not lead to any embarrassing situations.
You Will Need
Start the makeup by prepping your lips. Apply a lip balm/lip conditioner as this will make your lips appear smoother and softer. You can also use a lip scrub prior to the application of the lip balm for a non-flaky effect. Allow the lip balm to stay on for a good five to ten minutes for it to get absorbed into the lip.
Try to match the shades of the lip pencil and lipstick as this helps you to have a stronger base for lipstick application. It also intensifies the color of the lipstick.
Start applying it from the highest point of the cupid’s bow and outline your lips following the natural lip shape. Then, use the same lip liner and fill the entire lip. This serves as the base for your lipstick and prevents smudging.
Apply the lipstick all over your lips with a lip brush. You can also directly use the lipstick bullet for application. If you feel the lip balm applied previously is slicking off your lipstick, then apply some translucent or tinted loose powder all over your lips to provide a good surface for your lipstick. Then, run a clean, thin lip brush all over your lips to spread it evenly everywhere, even on the fine lines of the lips.
Once you are done applying the lipstick, gently suck on your finger, and as you pull out your finger, you will hear a popping sound. This technique removes the excess lip color from the inner part of the lips by transferring it onto the finger.
This is how you keep lipstick off your teeth. Wasn’t that a great makeup trick? No more embarrassing moments when someone points out your lipstick-infused teeth! Now, smile your way into people’s hearts!
