The Perfect Bold Lip

Achieving the perfect bold lip, no matter what colour it is, is sometimes hard to achieve. It can be really frustrating and stressful, making sure that it looks perfect and smudge free. While following these simple tips, you will be rocking the perfect bold lip.

 Step 1: Prepping The Lips
Making sure your lips are flake free is the first step in rocking a bold lip. To get a smooth mouth, exfoliate with the Fresh Sugar Lip Polish followed by a hydrating balm like the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15. These two Fresh products are seriously amazing and the lip treatments also come in other colours as well and with it being an SPF is also a bonus.

To keep colour from bleeding, outline your lips with a clear wax lip liner like the Bite Beauty Line and Define Lip Primer.

Step 2: Choose Your Colour
Apply your bold lip colour straight from the tube to the center of the lips and then use a tiny lip brush to spread the colour to the outer corners of the lip. Blot a few times and reapply the colour and blot again.

Step 3: Clean Up The Edges
Instead of using a lip liner that matches your lip colour, use a concealer stick {with a pointed tip} like the Josie Maran Argan Creamy Concealer Crayon to outline the lips to create a cleaner look. Lightening the perimeter of your lips, highlights the shape of your lip and creates more of a natural finished look.

Step 4: {OPTIONAL}
A lot of lipstick brands have oil in their lipsticks. If you are the type that likes a "matte" finish but doesn't like wearing "matte made" lipsticks, then blotting papers will be your best friend like the Sephora Mattifying Blotting Papers. Dabbing these oil absorbing sheets over a bold lip creates a flattering matte stain.

Thank you so much for stopping by, xo!!


  1. I always agree that prepping the lips is the most important factor when embracing a bold lip! No one wants chapped lips under their lipstick. Exfoliating is a must for sure.
    And a lip liner! I can't recommend that enough to clients.
