While Pinky is all set to make us groove, let’s try and embrace all things pink in our make-up stash too!
Read on to check out how you can find just the pink lipstick that will look prettiest on dusky Indian complexions and make you look as irresistible as the super-sexy Priyanka Chopra. To achieve the perfect pink pout you'll need:
• Lip Balm
• Pink lip liner
• Pink Lipstick
• Pink lip liner
• Pink Lipstick
Step 1: Hydrate your pout
Step 2: Outline lips with a pink lip liner
To make your lips look luscious, start by preparing your lips. Use a lemon juice-sugar scrub to gently exfoliate your pucker and smoothen lips. Then apply lip balm, paying special attention to the curve and corners of your mouth. Remember, no lip color looks appealing on dry, chapped lips. Leave the lip balm on for ten minutes before moving to the next step. I guarantee the end result will be softer, plumper lips.
Next wipe off the lip balm gently with a tissue. Then line your lips evenly with a pink lip liner that matches the color of the pink lipstick you plan to use. Never use a darker shade of lip liner because the end result looks tacky. Lip liners should always perfectly match the lipstick shade. If you want your lipstick to last longer, fill in your lips with the same lip liner after outlining your pucker. Then apply lipstick over the liner.
Step 3: Apply lipstick all over lips
Step 4: Tips for a more intense pigment
After lining and filling in your lips with the lip liner, apply lipstick either with a lip brush or directly from the tube. Start from the middle of your upper lip going towards the corners of your mouth. Repeat on the lower lip. Don't apply a thick coat as it can look patchy, uneven and overdone.
If you want more intense color that lasts longer, blot your lips once by pressing them with a tissue. Then reapply the lipstick (Step 3) to get intense color. Optionally you can apply a clear gloss for a shinier pink pout.
