“Lipstick is a form of self-care that raises your vibrations and makes you feel good. It’s an emotional pick me up.”, says global makeup artist Sir John.
Lipsticks are invitations to a world of exploration and limitless color play. Confidence built in a bullet, our Luxe Organic Lipstick transforms your look and attitude with a single swipe. Saturated with endless possibilities, pulling off a flawless lip look may be daunting if you are new to makeup. However, you can now put your worries to rest as top makeup artists reveal their best-kept secrets to a perfect pout.
Chapter 1: Pick A Shade
Are you wearing your lipstick during the daytime or nighttime? Do you wish to achieve a casual understated look or create stunning evening glamor? Keeping the occasion that you will be wearing your lipstick in mind can help shortlist suitable lipstick shades that best fit your lifestyle. When you are ready, follow these easy tips to find the best match that accentuates your features.
Try on lipstick colors on your lips instead of on the back of your hand. Your lips are not of the same color as your skin and you may be surprised at how different lipsticks can appear on your lips.
If you have brown eyes, cool blue toned lipsticks, such as our Luxe Organic Lipstick in Deep Plum, are great complements.
If you have blue or green eyes, choose warm orange-reds or corals to make your eyes pop. We recommend our Luxe Organic Lipstick in bestselling shades Spiced Poppy, Peachy Pink and Coral.
Nudes are not meant to be pale and pasty. When going after a natural look, choose beiges that are slightly deeper or brighter than your skin tone so that your lips do not disappear into your skin.
Achieve a brighter smile by applying lipsticks with a cool undertone. A blue-toned red lipstick, such as Luxe Organic Lipstick in Pink Hibiscus, is best at minimizing the yellow tones on your teeth.
Chapter 2: Lip Care Matters
A perfect pout goes beyond choosing the right lipstick shade and mastering application techniques. Before you put on your lipstick, take these extra steps to nourish your lips to ensure a smooth canvas for effortless application and exceptional stay-on power.
Dry and flakey lips do not mix well with lipstick. Use a gentle lip scrub or wet washcloth to slough off dead skin cells.
Slather on a generous amount of lip balm past your lip line and onto your skin. Leave it on for a long as possible so that your lips are intensely nourished and hydrated before putting on lipstick.
Apply a lip primer or concealer as a base to fill in fine lines and prepare a smooth canvas for lipstick application.
Chapter 3: Choosing Your Lipstick
More than just a pretty face, there are many factors besides color that come into play when choosing the right lipstick for you. Our Luxe Organic Lipstick is designed to deliver glamorous looks and more!
Choose lipsticks formulated with hydrating ingredients. Our Luxe Organic Lipstick is infused with nourishing Castor Seed Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Beeswax and Shea Butter which continues to moisturize your lips throughout the day.
Lipsticks with matte finishes will make great options for people who will be wearing masks. They are generally more transfer-resistant than shiny liquids such as lip glosses.
If your skin is prone to irritation, use lipsticks that are free of toxic chemicals that can trigger allergic reactions. Luxe Organic Lipstick is free of parabens, talc, phthalates and other harmful compounds.
Chapter 4: Application Techniques For Beginners & Pros
Now that you have nailed your lipstick match, it is time to put these makeup tips and tricks into practice to achieve a flawless lip look.
Add a touch of lightweight concealer around your lips to prevent lipstick from migrating or bleed into fine lines.
The natural color of your lips may come through when using a lipstick with sheer coverage. Applying a thin layer of concealer over your entire lips can help to ensure that your lipstick stays true to color.
To achieve a soft natural lip line that is still defined, skip the lip liner and use a lip brush to apply your lipstick.
A luscious pout can be achieved by drawing outside your natural lip line with a lip pencil. For fuller lips that look natural, choose just one area of your lips to overdraw, either your cupid’s bow or the center of your bottom lip.
Another way to achieve fuller looking lips is to blend a secondary lip color in a lighter shade at the center of your upper and lower lips.
Pressed for time? A quick and easy way to add color to your lips is to apply lipstick directly onto the center of your lips and blend out the edges using a clean finger.
Perfecting a lip look is easier than you think. Find your dream lipstick from our collection of Luxe Organic Lipstick and follow these pro tips by top makeup artists and you will be flaunting flawless pouts in no time.
