The Dos and Don’ts of Liquid Lipstick

Liquid Lipstick Dos and Donts

Liquid lipsticks are THE trend and we love flaunting a sleek matte, liquid lipstick anytime and anywhere. But we can’t deny the fact that liquid lipsticks dry out our lips and crack up leading to bleeding and feathering. Liquid lipsticks are a great pick when you feel like trying a nuanced lipstick texture as compared to your regular glossy ones. The richly pigmented colour with an intense finish lasts long and makes liquid lipsticks a must-have and a must-try for every makeup lover.

We’ve all caught ourselves envying people around us who have a perfect pout all the time. And when we see our friends rocking liquid lipsticks with ease, we too dream about sporting them with utmost sass. But if you’re someone who can’t, we’re with you on that. Applying liquid lipstick the right way is nothing less than acing that winged eyeliner. Just like your winged eyeliners, we have our lucky days with liquid lipsticks. So, if you’re looking to nail this trend on the very first try, we’re here to help! In today’s class, we’ll be going over liquid lipstick do’s and don’ts for perfect application. Here’s how to get a red carpet-worthy pucker with existing liquid lip colours in your stash.

Do: Exfoliate and keep your lips moisturized

Matte lipsticks, sometimes, tend to get dried when applied, thereby increasing the chances of lip lines and chapped skin. One way of avoiding this is by moisturizing your lips well and getting rid of all the dry skin with a lip scrub. This will provide a smooth and soft canvas for lipstick application. Not only will this make your lipstick look better, but it will also ensure your lips don’t feel dry throughout the day.

You can try our SUGAR Lip Service Sugar Scrub that is infused with fine sugar crystal granules that gently buff away dead cells and flakes from your lips while the shea butter moisturises and nourishes the lips.

Once you’re done, ensure your lips are well moisturized with a nice lip balm. Try the SUGAR Tipsy Lips Moisturizing Balm for the perfect prep and all day long nourishment. Choose from 7 lip-smacking variants from the range and get started. Apply a light layer of lip balm all over your lipstick to keep them soft even with heavy-duty liquid lipsticks on top.

Don’t: Over-apply it

When applying liquid lipstick, it’s very difficult to stay inside the lines. And since liquid lipsticks are much more pigmented and prominent compared to bullet lipsticks, drawing outside the lines can easily look shabby. To prevent that, line your lips first and then apply an even, thin layer.

Do: Outline with a lip pencil

It’s always safe to trace the edges of your lips with a lip pencil before applying your lipstick. Whether you’re using a liquid lipstick or a bullet lipstick, a lip liner creates a nice guide for application. For this, you can either use a lip pencil in a corresponding colour or a nude lipstick that blends well with every shade. Try the SUGAR Lipping On The Edge Lip Liner range that comes in 8 splendid shades that are perfect for all your lipstick moods!

Don’t: Immediately rub your lips together

This is a big no when using liquid lipstick. If you rub your lips before the lipstick completely dries, it’s going to get patchy and uneven in seconds and then proceed to dry in that state. So keep your lips parted till the lipstick dries and you’re all set.

Do: Start applying lipstick slowly

When it comes to makeup, it’s always better to start slow and build as you go. Similarly, when you’re applying lipstick, you need to start with a thin layer and then build the intensity and opacity as you go. And most of the time, liquid lipsticks are pigmented enough to give you your desired results in a fine, thin coat.

Don’t: Reapply before the first layer dries

If you want to layer your liquid lipstick, have patience. Wait for your first layer of lipstick to dry completely before applying the second layer. Reapplying before the first layer completely dries will make your lipstick look thick and heavy.

Do: Let the lipstick formula dry

After applying an even coat of lipstick all over your lips, wait for the lipstick to dry before pursing your lips together. Keep your lips slightly parted till the lipstick dries to avoid smearing or creating patches.
