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 colours for days. Kylie Jenner trail-blazed a movement of lip-worshipping, and here at Primark our range of products sky-rocketed! With liquid lipsticks, new liners and more, the styling opportunities are endless. 2016’s trends ooze sophistication, and although we’re saying goodbye to the big pouts of 2015, we’re so excited for the new year of beauty…
2016’s lip is neat, smooth and styled to suit your look. But whether you love pop colours like coral and orange, or go for luxe with red and burgundy, don’t be afraid to push the boat out! And if you’re wondering how to get totally Instagrammable lips, at prices as amazing as the moment you finally get your cupid’s bow 100% even, we’ve got 4 easy steps just for you.
Lipliner £1 / €1.50 / $1.50
Step one: Starting with a clean, smiling base is absolutely essential. We recommend exfoliating with muslin, and applying a balm (SPF wins brownie points!). Finish with a dash of concealer, to act as a base for your colour and help it last longer.
Step two: Get lining! Stick close to your natural shape, but feel free to accentuate your cupid’s bow for a super-romantic look. We love this hot pink pencil, £1 / €1.50
Lipstick from 80p / €1.50 / 90¢
Step 3: Now for the fun bit: get filling your lines with colour (brushes work amazingly here)! We’ve gone for PS…Lipstick in a gorgeous bright pink. Did you know our lipsticks start from 80p / €1.50 / 90¢? No joke, and they’re gorgeously pigmented!
Step 4: Retouch and give your lips some finishing detail. If you still love 2015’s immaculate finish, grab a face wipe to clean up and perfect the outline of your lips. But, if such precision doesn’t fit your style, try gently softening the look with a lip brush or your fingertip.
And that’s it! All that’s left to do is pucker up for a selfie! Check out our other beauty how-tos below to finish off your look…
