How to wear a deeper lipstick shade
Once you’ve decided on the colour of lipstick that’s caught your eye, we move on to the simple tips and tricks to fully rock the shade.
1. Exfoliate your lips
Winter can make your lips dry and flaky. Exfoliating your lips will help remove the dead skin cells and reveal baby-soft, hydrated skin that’s pouty-worthy.
Alanna Chocolate Lip Scrub will help the skin’s moisture by making it feel rejuvenated and plump on the go.
2. Use a lip balm or a lip liner
It’s always important to apply lip balm to keep your lips hydrated and prevent them from getting dry with liquid lipstick.
Use a lip liner to even out the edges of your lips for more volume, firmness, colour, and a smear-proof experience!
3. Apply translucent powder
With a loose translucent powder, you can instantly matte your lips without drying them out. Sprinkle some powder over the tissues and gently hold them with your lips. Remove it carefully to reveal a frosty, gorgeous finish!
Investing in lipsticks that are rich, vampy, and dark is totally worth the investment. But eventually, you do what you’re comfortable with. Understand what suits your skin tone. Make the switch to the dark side like a pro with us!
