Kylie Jenner looked red hot with red lips at ‘The Gallows’ premiere in Los Angeles, Calif. on July 8, but this can be a tricky look to pull off. We’ve got expert tips on how to keep your lipstick perfect below!
Kylie Jenner, 17, rocked a bold lip look at the movie premiere, which she attended with mom Kris Jenner. Her makeup was bold and beautiful and we’ve got a celebrity makeup artist to talk about how to copy that look.
Kylie wore a black crop top and pants, covered by a long white Kimora Lee Simmons coat at the premiere. Her hair was sleek and straight and she wore sunglasses to combat the L.A. sun.
How To Keep Lipstick Off Your Teeth — Expert Tips
To get perfect red lips like Kylie, we’re going to the experts. Celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine spilled her tips on TheBeautyDepartment.com:
“Nothing is worse than rocking a gorgeous bold lip then walking into the bathroom and seeing it all over your teeth! AGH! So annoying. If you choose a matte formula, most likely this won’t happen; but choose a bright satin finish or a liquid lacquer and you’re in trouble. Luckily there’s a little quick thing you can do (and should do) every time you wear lipstick. Simply place your index finger in your mouth, close your lips around it then pull the finger back out. Any lipstick that would have ended up on your teeth is now on your finger instead. I test every lipstick with this trick before I leave the house and maybe a third of the time there is nothing on my finger.”
Here is what to do:
“1. Apply the lipstick along the top, really coating while following the shape of the cupid’s bow.
2. Apply it along the bottom as well, being sure to coat the inside part so you don’t have bare lip peeking through. This is the area that tends to end up on your teeth, but not an area you want to skip when wearing a bright lip color. Which is why this finger trick is a life saver!
3. Place your finger in your mouth and wrap your lips around it. I tried to take a picture of this step to show you but, let’s just say it doesn’t photograph well! Then pull your finger out and all of the lipstick that would have ended up on your teeth is now on your finger.”
Will you try this trick next time you wear lipstick?
