Hey Bratz fanz, Cloe here to give you a lesson in luscious lip-wear! Do you know the difference between lip-gloss, lipstick, lip stain and lip balm? There are so many options for the perfect pout that it can get confusing. I’m here to help you understand it all! Let’s begin!
Lipstick: Lipstick comes in many different colors, from shades of pink and red to nudes, corals and plums. You can go for a natural look or pick an intense shade depending on how you’re feeling. Here are my top tips for applying lipstick:
- Lip liner is important if you’re experimenting with dark shades like red. Pick a matching lip liner and trace over the natural line of your lips. Don’t use lip liner when applying light colors.
- Use a lip brush to smooth on lipstick within the natural line of your lips.
- Blot! Get a piece of tissue paper and blot off excess color by smacking your lips together.
Lip gloss: I’m a total lip gloss addict! I think I have like 7 in my purse right now, lol! When you want something easy to apply with a high-shine, go for lip gloss. They come in lots of colors, they go on smooth and they leave your lips glistening! Just glide onto your lips and go!
Lip stain: Stains give a wash of color to your lips without the shine of gloss or the strong hue of lipstick. They’re super long lasting and perfect for all-day color without the worry of reapplying. They usually come in the form of a felt tip marker. My tip for applying lip stain is to draw the line of your lips first then color in the rest. So cute, so kissable! Muah!
Lip balm: These are the easiest to wear and come in lots of fun flavors! Lip balms are made to moisturize and protect lips. There are even tinted lip balms if you want to add some extra color. My favorite is cherry flavor with pink tint.
Now that you’ve got the lip-wear lowdown it’s time to try new things! If you normally go for lip balm, try lip gloss instead! If lip gloss is your go-to lip-wear then experiment with lipstick! Being a fashionista means always trying new things!
