With the deep lip trend taking off, beauty brands everywhere have developed a vast variety of shades, tones, and finishes to compliment the look desired and overall skin tone.
A bold, beautiful lip doesn’t need any frills. Stick with simple eye makeup when you’re out and about with your deep lips--consider a voluminous mascara and a black eyeliner. Who thought looking so chic would cut down on your makeup prep time?
While you’re debuting your deep lip, keep a few things in mind.
1. Always choose a shade and finish that plays well with your skin. There’s nothing worse than a lipstick that completely dries out your lips.
2. Make sure you exfoliate with a lip scrub before application. This gives you the perfect pout to start with.
3. Line your lips. This locks in the color and prevents any feathering.
4. Fix any imperfections with a tiny brush and a bit of foundation. This keeps your lips looking crisp and clean.
