Tricks for creating a perfect pout

Impeccably applied lipstick can make or break a look, but painting a pout perfectly can be tricky. Luckily, InStyle magazine came up with a few tips on how to get the ideal look without a lot of effort.

With a plethora of colors to choose from, finding the perfect pink for your lips may seem overwhelming. However, selecting a color can actually be quite simple as long as you use your gums as a guide.

"Just smile," the news source suggests. "Your perfect shade is about the same color as your gums - no lighter."

To ensure that your lipstick lasts all day, fill your entire lip with a neutral pencil and then apply lip color. Blot excess color using a lint-free paper, reapply the product, and then blot again to create a durable lip stain.

Though women often want their lipstick to look the same on their lips as it does in the tube, the natural color of their pout can alter the lipstick's hue. To avoid this, the news provider recommends that ladies prime their lips with a foundation, which will give them a blank canvas.

Armed with the perfect pout, women who want to subtly emphasize and define their eyes to fade can try an acrylic-based mascara that will lengthen their lashes and intensify eyes.
