If youre sad, add more lipstick and attack Coco Chanel

There are few things in the world that can instantly spice up both the look and our attitude, and one of those things is lipstick. Lipstick not only helps to make a statement, but its also a fun way to play with different looks, all while improving your mood.

But what if youre not a lipstick fan? Well then, what better way to spend World Lipstick Day than by reading our guide on how you can get the perfect lipstick?

Theres nothing more uncomfortable (and unsightly) than a lipstick that dries out your lips and leaves them with a caked appearance. This is why its always important to choose a lipstick thatll not only make your lips pop, but itll also keep them moisturized.

The Revlon Super Lustrous Glass Shine Lipstickis a great lipstick thatll help keep your lips moisturized, thanks to its blend of aloe and hyaluronic acid both of which have hydrating qualities.

A creamy lipstick not only provides a vibrant look, but also makes application easier. If your lipstick isnt creamy, then it wont glide as easily on your lips, leaving you with a patchy appearance.

The NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Creamnot only gives off a vibrant color, but its soft and creamy coverage provides a beautiful matte finish.

How many of us have time to pull down our masks and reapply our lipsticks? That said, if you really want to invest in a lipstick thatll still look good 8 hours after youve applied it. This lipstick should still look flawless after a day of face masks, air kisses, healthy lunches, and endless ZOOM meetings.

The Rimmel London Lasting Finish is a great budget lipstick that not only provides long-wear, but its soft and creamy finish will have you wanting to reapply it just for the feel.

In the world of face masks, the last thing you want is a lipstick that flies off your lips as soon as your lips come into contact with something, be it a face mask, your teeth, or someone elses cheeks.

The KVD Vegan Beauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is a vegan product that provides a long-wear and transfer-proof finish.

I dont know about you, but I dont wear lipstick for the feel of it. If my lipstick doesnt color my lips, then why bother? The last thing you want is to have a lipstick with a poor color payoff, which will then force you to apply more layers to build up color, and thatll just waste product.

So, its important to find a lipstick that has a great color payoff, like the PatMcGrath Labs MatteTranceLipstick, which not only has an amazing color payoff but its lightweight and hydrating formula is long-lasting on the lips.

The last thing you want is a lipstick that forgets its place and decides to bleed outside the lines of your lips.

The last thing you want is a lipstick that glues your lips shut. The texture of a lipstick can cause stickiness, so youll need to choose a product that has a smooth texture and it doesnt make it feel like your lips have been bound together for life.

The Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstickprovides a polished formula, thanks to vitamin E and safflower seed oil, thatll leave your lips smooth and hydrated.

Now, while it shouldnt smell good enough to eat, theres no reason as to why your lipstick should smell like plastic. If it does, then its probably expired, or it contains ingredients that you and your lips should not be touching.

If youre a coffee-lover, then youll definitely enjoy Maybellines SuperStay Coffee lipstick that not only has an enticing coffee scent, but its also long-lasting and transfer-resistant.

No matter how good a lipstick looks on the shelf, or on the makeup lady at the counter, that doesnt mean thatll look good on you too. This is why its important to choose a lipstick that complements your skin tone.

How can you do this? Simple choose a lipstick that flatters your skins undertone.

If your veins appear to be blue or purple, you probably have cool undertones. Choose lipsticks that have blueish and purple shades berry colors, such as the RMS Russian Roulette vegan lipstick. If youre looking to wear red lipstick, choose a shade thats more cherry red.

If your veins appear to be green, you probably have warm undertones. Choose lipsticks that have orange hues fiery reds, terracotta browns, and bold oranges. To get that fiery red look, try the Trust Me from Colourpop Lippie Stixas its a great vegan alternative to Macs Ruby Woo.

If they are a mix of both, you may have neutral undertones): You can play with a variety of shades, from mauve shades to pink hues to berry colors. As such, we recommend the Champagne on Ice shade from Revlon.

Now that you know how to choose the perfect lipstick, heres a how-to guide on how you can flawlessly apply your lipstick.

Mix honey with some sugar, dipping a wet toothbrush into the mixture, and then gently rubbing your lips with the mixture.

Using a lighter foundation or your concealer, apply a small amount all over your lips. This wont only act as a primer, but it also hides any hyperpigmentation on your lips, as well as prevents bleeding.

A lip liner will help to provide definition, so make sure to apply lip liner around your lips. You can also put lip liner all over your lips as this will provide definition.

Its the part youve been waiting for. Start by placing the lipstick in the center of your upper lip and then work outward, moving the lipstick across your upper lip from the center to both corners, until the entire lip is covered.Repeat the same thing on the bottom lip, starting from the center and working outward.

If your lipstick isnt transfer-proof, blotting it can help to reduce the transfer. To blot your lips, grab a tissue or napkin, hold it in between your lips and gently press down.

If you dont have a tissue or napkin, you can use a setting powder to blot your lips. Grab a brush, or your fingers, and lightly tap a small amount on your lips.
