How To Wear A Bold Lip

Updated: Jan 27

If you're used to wearing neutral or muted lip colours, branching out into a bold colour can seem scary! I remember the first time I wore a red lip I was like "WHOATHERESMYLIPSGETITOFFGETITOFF!!!" But now - I rock a bright red lip like it ain't no thang! Bright lipstick can make a striking statement and you should be prepared to receive LOTS of compliments!

If you're new to this concept, here are some quick tips to help you wear it with confidence!

1 . Choose a lip colour that's going to stay put and last!

The impact of a stunning statement lip can be ruined if it ends up all over your teeth or disappears after one glass of wine. LipSense® lasts 4-18 hours and stays exactly where you put it, avoiding those smears all over your glass/cup/significant other/teeth/face!

2. Prep your lips

Just like the skin on your face, your lips should be exfoliated and hydrated with a good lip balm on the daily so that when it comes to applying your bright colours they're smooth and plump with no pesky flakes. Using LipSmooth® Conditioning Polish in conjunction with LipSense® Moisturizing Lip Balm is the ultimate duo for achieving the smoothest, softest and hydrated lips possible.

3. Precision is key

Wearing a bold colour accentuates your lip shape, and any imperfections become immediately noticeable. Take time during your application to apply the colour precisely, especially when outlining your lips. If needed, use a lip brush or LinerSense® in a complementary shade to outline your lips before proceeding to fill them in with colour, Use Ooops! Remover™ to clean up any mistakes for a perfectly shaped pout.

4. Allow each layer to fully dry completely between applications.

You want opaque colour that stands out without distracting streaks of patches. The best way to achieve this is by applying THIN layers and waiting up to a full minute after applying each layer to allow the colour to dry completely. Top with your choice of moisturising gloss (I recommend Glossy Gloss) to keep your lips soft and healthy and lock in your beautiful LipSense® colour.

5. Keep the rest of your look simple.

Allow your lips to stand out by keeping your eyes and blush to a minimum. Stick to neutral ShadowSense® shades or go with EyeSense® eyeliner.

6. Fake it 'til you make it!

Even if you don't feel confident right away, give it time and learn to get comfortable with it!
