Striking Lipstick Techniques: The Art of Perfect Lips

The art of lipstick application is essential for flawless makeup and can dramatically enhance your overall appearance. At Mon Lis Studio, we master the technique of applying lipstick not just for durability but also for a spectacular look. In this article, we share some of our most effective techniques for the art of perfect lips.

Basics of Perfect Lipstick Application

Before applying lipstick, it's important to create a good base. Well-prepared lips ensure smoother application and longer-lasting wear of the lipstick.

1. Exfoliate Your Lips

Start with a lip scrub to remove dead skin cells and make your lips smooth and soft. This is especially important in the colder months when lips are prone to dryness and cracking.

2. Moisturize

After exfoliating, apply a nourishing lip balm to moisturize and condition your lips. Let the balm absorb for a few minutes before continuing.

Techniques for Application

Perfect Outline

For a precise lip shape, start with a lip liner that matches your natural lip color or your lipstick. Carefully outline your lips to define the shape and prevent the lipstick from "bleeding".

Color Application

Apply the lipstick from the center of the lips outward. Use a lip brush for greater precision and control. For more intense color and longer wear, apply a second layer.

Set with Powder

To extend wear time, place a thin tissue over your lips and gently dab with translucent powder. This sets the color and prevents smudging.

Advanced Techniques

Ombre Lips

An ombre technique, using two colors that gently blend into each other, can make your lips appear fuller. Use a darker shade at the lip edges and a lighter shade in the center.


Adding a little highlighter on the cupid's bow (the upper middle of the upper lip) and in the middle of the lower lip can visually enlarge your lips and give them a fuller look.

The techniques for lipstick application are diverse and can vary depending on the desired effect.
