How To Apply Lipstick Perfectly: 4 Methods For Beginners

For decades, lipstick has been the most popular cosmetic, and there is a good reason. If you know how to apply lipstick properly, you can immediately improve your image, make your makeup look brighter, and make makeup fancier. Therefore, it is not surprising that women cannot live without it! A popular proverb says, “give a woman the right lipstick and she will conquer the world.” However, not everyone knows how to play with this magical stick.

It is an art that requires precision, skill, and practice. If you are new to lipstick and lip color, here is all the help you need. This article lists some tips and tricks for those who are trying to master the applied art of lip color.

Method 1: Apply Lipstick Regularly And Gradually

Step 1: Prepare Your Lips

This is the first and most important step. Of course, you don’t want to walk around with cracked lips. Exfoliate with a soft, moist toothbrush and apply moisturizing lipstick to replenish moisture, leaving lips soft and healthy. After that, you can apply lip gloss primer to keep the lip gloss longer and prevent bleeding.

Step 2: Apply Foundation Make-up.

If you are worried that the lipstick will change color or the lip color is uneven, it is very important that your lipstick has a base. This is to ensure that your lipstick does not penetrate your lips.

Choose a concealer that matches the color of your lips and apply it gently with a flat brush or a small furry brush. Apply some sealant to this to seal the base. It can also help keep your lip color longer.

Step 3: Use A Lip Liner

In order to define your natural lip line and prevent your lipstick from becoming messy, use a good lip liner to define, reshape and perfect the contour of your lips. In this way, you will get a clearer, more accurate, and more refined appearance. From one corner to another, outline your natural lip liner with eyeliner that matches your skin color to prevent feathers (sometimes depending on how it matches the lipstick you decide to wear). To make Cupid’s bow more prominent, create an ‘x’ shape on your upper lip just below Cupid’s bow.

Don’t worry if the inner lines are a little imperfect, because lipstick will cover them anyway — but the most important thing is the outer lines.

Step 4: Apply Lipstick

Once you have completed all the above steps and selected your lipstick, put some products on the lip brush and apply them evenly to your lips. Don’t miss the inside corner. Be sure to apply to the corners of the wrinkled lips. You can wear them one by one and deepen the color according to your preference. Usually, a good layer of lipstick is enough.

Step 5: Add A Definition

Use a small concealer powder Blusher and work on your edges to correct the shape of your lips.

This is optional, but if you want your lips to look wrinkled, you can add a little subtle lip gloss.

Now that you have a basic idea for preparing your lips and applying lipstick perfectly, let’s introduce some other basic ideas you can use.

Method 2: How To Apply Lipstick Without Lip Liner

If you don’t have a lip liner in your makeup box, don’t worry, because there is a secret to applying lipstick perfectly, not using lipstick.

Step 1: Use Your Fingers

Rub your ring finger onto the lip color of your choice, then press this finger directly on your lips and move along the natural lip line. This allows you to achieve accuracy without padding.

Step 2: Finish Modeling

For the inside of the lips, apply the color directly from the lipstick tube or with a lip brush. Isn’t that simple? This trick will come in handy when you are in a hurry! Let’s look at some other simple tips to help you achieve the purpose of lipstick.

Method 3: How To Apply Lipstick on Small Lips 

If you want to make yourself look fuller with a little lipstick, there are many cool makeup shortcuts to meet your wishes.

Note: there are also lip enriching and lip warping products on the market, such as lipstick.

Step 1: Exfoliate 

You can exfoliate with nourishing lipstick or natural sugar scrub. Gently massage the scrub onto your lips and slowly move in a circular motion.

Step 2: Prime 

The primer can be used to obtain a uniform background color, thus extending the service life of lipstick.

Step 3: Line 

Use a lip liner that matches your lipstick color. Avoid using too dark colors because they will only make your lips look smaller.

Step 4: Highlight.

Once you apply lipstick, be sure to highlight your lipstick. Just as highlighting affects your face, highlighting makes your lips look fuller. To increase the touch, put some lip gloss on your lip color. Lip gloss is a godsend for small or thin lips.

Method4: How To Apply Lipstick In The Corners Of Your Mouth

Apply lipstick, starting from the center of the lips and moving outward to the corners of the mouth. If you start at the corner of your mouth, you may end up drawing lines, which will not form the desired beautiful appearance. Starting from the center and moving outward will give you more control.

How To Achieve Long-Lasting Lipstick

  • After applying lipstick, put your fingers into your mouth and suck the inside of your lips dry. Close your lips around your fingers and pull out your fingers. This technique can prevent lipstick from getting on your pearls.
  • Now, sprinkle the powder on your lips to make it last. Before applying translucent styling powder, press it on your lips with a paper towel. Do this after the first layer of lipstick and then apply the second layer.
  • Clean the outer edges of your lips with a concealer that matches your skin tone. Use a brush to outline your lips and mix them outward. This will also prevent your lipstick from being smeared and make your lips look more prominent.
  • If you want to highlight your cupid bow, use a white or ivory highlight pencil to draw it over your lips. This will highlight your cupid’s bow.
  • If you want to make your lips look fuller, you can put lip gloss on lipstick. This will not only add some luster but also make your lips look fuller. But make sure not to apply it to your lips, but only to the center of your lower lip, which will give people the illusion of full lips.


A touch of color on your lips can brighten any dull day. But it is not so easy to apply lipstick perfectly. It may get tricky, and you may end up with some terrible mistakes. We have shared with you some tips and tricks to make you apply lipstick like a professional. These tips will also help keep your lipstick as it is, making you look radiant and lasting.
