It’s #NationalLipstickDay! Here are 5 tips to achieve that perfect pout

Happy National Lipstick Day! AKA our favourite day.


To celebrate, we’ve rounded up our top 5 tips for achieving that perfect pout. You’ll thank us later.

1. Always exfoliate

Cracked lips? No thanks. Ensure that your lipstick doesn’t sink into the lines of your lips by exfoliating beforehand. Just grab a toothbrush and lightly brush it over your lips to rid dry skin.

2. Use a primer

Ever wondered how makeup goddesses make their lipstick last all day? A primer will be your new best friend.

3. Draw an X to accentuate your Cupid’s Bow and trace lips perfectly


4. Use the correct coloured liner

Pick a liner that’s one shade darker than your natural lip colour.

5. Clean up the edges using concealer

Mistakes? Not to worry. Fix up the look and prevent colour bleeding by applying concealer around the edges of your lips.

That’s it! Now you’re ready to run the world like Tay.
