Jane Iredale Lip Definer for a Softer, Sexier Pout
There’s nothing sexier than lips covered in luxurious color. Before you merely swipe on lipstick and leave the house, though, remember the importance of using a lip pencil! It seals in your lip color and accentuates your lips. Here are some tips on how to use it for maximum pout appeal.
Prepare Your Lips
Lip liner is a great way to define the shape of your lips. Before using a lip pencil, however, it’s always a good idea to exfoliate dry skin from your lips with a toothbrush that has been placed under warm water and then gently rubbed over your lips. You also want to apply a lip balm for extra moisture so that the finished result is soft and luscious.
Smooth Lip Service
A lip pencil that has a drying effect on your lips is a no-no! This can be caused by the pencil being too hard. The Jane Iredale Lip Definer pencil is silky soft while containing oils and waxes to seal in your lips’ moisture and prevent lip color from drying out. These ingredients include luxurious shea butter and nourishing macadamia seed oil.
Plump Your Pout
When applying lip liner, part your lips a bit and use short and light strokes with the pencil. Move around the border of your lips, accentuating their natural shape. You can draw slightly over your natural lip line but avoid the impulse of overdrawing too much as this will look strange!
If you want to give the impression of naturally plumper lips, fill in the entire lip with your lip liner – the bonus is this will also make your color last longer. Then, finish off with a lipstick color that’s one shade darker than your lip liner. When applying lipstick, you want to do so heavily in the middle of your lips, then use a lip brush to move the color to the rest of your lips. This helps to blend the lipstick with the pencil and prevents color bleeding.
Skip the Lipstick!
You don’t always have to wear lip liner with a lipstick. A Jane Iredale Lip Definer in a color such as ‘spice’ is a gorgeous shade to wear on its own. Since the pencil is so hydrating to lips, it won’t look harsh if you choose to wear it solo. If you don’t want to slick on some clear gloss to finish off the look, that’s okay too – matte lips look sultry while balancing out your makeup if you’re wearing glittery or shiny eye shadow. Remember: if your eye makeup is very dramatic, you want a more subtle lip, and vice versa.
It’s convenient and good value for money when a makeup product can be used on more than one part of your face. The Jane Iredale Lip Definer works to make your mouth more luscious but it can also be used as blush or a warm hue on your eyelids. The pencil doesn’t contain any FD&C dyes that are potentially harmful to health so it’s safe for use all over your face.
With some clever makeup hacks and the use of Jane Iredale Lip Gloss or Definer, you can achieve eye-catching lips and longer-lasting color power so your pout won’t let you down.
