Kinds of Lip Makeup
Lipstick contains pigment and emollients that moisturize your lips and make it easier to apply the colour.
Lip crayon. One of the most convenient lip products – you just “draw” in the colour and you’re done!
Lip stain. It has more pigments, and a watery base. It’s less likely to fade, but can bleed if you don’t apply properly. Your lip texture will show through.
Lip gloss. Lots of emollients give more shine, but also means it’ll fade faster.
Lip balm. This has a beeswax base that heals and hydrates the lips. Some of the best lip balms also contain SPF.
Liquid lipstick. It has lots pigment and a special “wet finish”.
Lip pencil/lip liner. You can use this to line the lips to prevent lipstick from bleeding, or to fill in the whole lip – it will act like base that helps any other lipstick last longer.
Lip primer. Like foundation primer, it fills in lines in your lips for smoother application, and helps your lip products last longer.
Kinds of Lip Makeup Finishes
This feels soft and comfortable on your lips, and is very moisturizing too! However, it fades faster and can bleed – use lipliner and blot well!
This was a top lip Singapore trend! You can’t beat the rich, intense colour, but it can be drying. You need to use lip treatment or lip balm to prevent flaking and cracking, and exfoliate with a lip scrub.
While this isn’t as pigmented as matte lipstick, it’s less drying and feels lighter on the lips.
No, this lipstick product doesn’t come in powder form – rather, it gives a soft, blurred and powdery finish.
These also became a huge lip Singapore trend. They’re really easy to apply (just swipe them on for lots of shine and spark!) but they fade quickly and can feel sticky.
Lip makeup tips
To prevent early expiration/contamination: Use a clean lip brush instead of applying it directly on your lips. Once every two weeks, scrape off the top of the lip product with a cotton bud.
To help it last longer: apply several thin layers, blotting in between. This deposits the pigment into your lips while removing the emollients that can make it fade and smudge. You can also fill in your lips with a matching lip liner – it intensifies the colour and creates a waxy base for pigments to cling to.
For smoother application Twice a week, exfoliate your lips with a lip scrub (make your own by mixing sugar and honey or olive oil). You can also apply lip balm, and gently scrub the lips with a washcloth or a soft toothbrush.
For better colour. Apply a thin layer of foundation on your lips with a damp sponge before applying lipstick. You can also use a nude lipliner.
