Make-up Pencils vs. Fingers

Hi Everyone

Choosing the right tools to apply your make-up typically depends on what kind of look you are going for. For a natural, deliberately imperfect appearance that is soft and some what toned down, it is always best to apply lipstick using your index finger. Just dab the lip color on from one corner of the mouth to the other. Using your fingers to apply lip color gives you a natural look, but they also provide a natural feel because the heat from your fingers heats up the product to give you a softer look. This finger “tip” is great for everyday wear at work, shopping with the gals, or a trip to the movies.

For a more dramatic look, you can always use a lip pencil. Not only do pencils create a clean and smooth lip line, they help prevent your lipstick from bleeding into the small wrinkles around the mouth. Lip pencils are also known to look great with matte lip colors. Using a lip pencil is perfect for dates, special events, or wedding days.

For a Perfect Pucker:

To correct droopy lips, apply concealer at both corners of the mouth and then line the lips with a pencil and apply lipstick as needed.

To improve thin lips, apply a thin line of beige pencil just beyond the natural lines of the mouth. Stick with natural, light, and iridescent colors because they will make your lips look fuller. To make your lips look even fuller, apply a dot of clear gloss in the center of your lips.

For full lips, layer foundation on your whole mouth. Line the natural lip line and fill in using natural soft colors. Try to avoid dark colors because they attract attention but not necessarily in a good way.
