Top Tips for Instagrammable Lips
There’s no doubt about it: 2015 was the year of the super-lip. We’re talking overdrawing, plumping products, and a million colors. Kylie Jenner led the lip-worshippers, and here at Primark our collection of products skyrocketed! With liquid lipsticks, new liners and more, the styling opportunities are endless. 2016’s trends ooze sophistication. And though we’re saying goodbye to the big pouts of 2015, we’re totally excited for the new beauty year…
2016’s lip is neat, smooth and styled to work with your look. Whether you love bright colors like coral and orange, or like to go luxe with red and burgundy, don’t be afraid to go bold! Wondering how to get totally Instagrammable lips, at prices as amazing as finally getting your 100% perfect pout? We have 4 easy steps just for you.
Step 1: It's absolutely essential to start with a clean, smiling base. We recommend exfoliating with a cotton cloth, and applying a balm (SPF wins brownie points!). Finish with a pat of concealer: it acts as a base for your color and helps it last longer.
Step 2: Get lining! Stick close to your natural shape, but feel free to accent your cupid’s bow for a super-romantic look. We love this hot pink pencil, $1.50
Lipsticks starting at 90¢
Step 3: Now for the fun part: fill in your lines with color (brushes work amazingly here)! We went for PS…Lipstick in a gorgeous bright pink. Did you know our lipsticks start at less than $3? No joke, and the pigments are gorgeous!
Step 4: Correct any mistakes and give your lips some finishing detail. If you still love 2015’s perfect finish, grab a face wipe to clean up and perfect the outline of your lips. But if sharply drawn isn't your style, try gently softening the look with a lip brush or your fingertip.
And that’s it! Now pucker up: time for a selfie! Check out our other beauty how-tos below to finish your look…
