Worried About Using Lip Liner Perfectly? Follow Few Steps

Using a lip liner seems fairly simple, however there are some steps that one must follow to get that million-dollar smile, say experts.
Bhavya Sharma, Beauty and make up expert at UrbanClap.com lists down few ways to get the lip linear right:

* Remove dead skin: Well-hydrated and smooth lips are essential for a neat finish. Apply lip balm to moisturize your lips. And to remove dead skin, gently use a soft toothbrush over your lips. Once this is done, use a tissue paper to blot your lips and to remove the extra balm.

* Choose lip liner: The lip liner should be of similar shade as your lipstick. This way it blends in well with the lipstick and does not stick out.

* Outline the lips: Draw an ‘M’ shape on your upper lip where the two arches converge. Do this slightly above your natural lip line to make your lips fuller. Be precise and do not overdraw.

* Line the lower lip: Keep your mouth wide open and tighten your lips. Start outlining the lower lip from the middle and gradually move outwards to the sides.

* Apply strokes: Now that you have outlined to lips, it’s time to move inwards. Start by drawing small strokes on your lips. Use your lip liner to fill in the lips smoothly.

* Blend it: If you want to sport a matte look, then you are done. Just apply some lip gloss and you are set. But, if you want a strong shade, apply a lipstick of the same shade. Blend the lipstick with the liner using a lip brush for an even-toned look. Clean the edges using a tissue or cotton bud.

Thicker as well as more oily skin needs a proper cleaning to keep the pores and the sebaceous ducts open. Using a good facial cleanser is most important before going to sleep, followed by a moisturizer to retain the skin’s moisture. Cleansing is essential to sanitize your skin and eliminate dead skin cells, adds cosmetic surgeon Dr Mohan Thomas.

Shaving

Shaving should be done only after washing the face with warm water and mild soap. It is usually better to shave immediately after taking a shower as the hair is soft and can be cut closer to the skin for a smooth shave. Use a mild aftershave for that absolutely clean look.

Incorrect shaving can lead to an uneven skin tone, rough texture, and ingrown hair. Wash your face with warm water before shaving and do not shave against the grain. Experts suggest that the best time to shave is after the shower when the skin is moist, the pores open, and hair soft. Cut down on aftershave. After shave lotions containing alcohol were used in ancient days to prevent infections caused by razors. Instead, use a moisturizer or face tonic after shaving for a softer and healthier skin.

Exfoliation

Exfoliation of skin has to be done on a regular basis so as to remove the layer of dead cells which can cause bacterial infection on your skin. Removing dead cells from the skin’s surface leaves the face radiant and healthy. Once a week, one should use a gentle but granulated face scrub to help smoothen the skin and eliminate dullness. This will also allow the moisturizer to get absorbed better. Gentle exfoliation will get rid of the impurities, cleanse the face, and revive the skin.
