Makeup Trend: Sheer Lipstick

Want your makeup to look polished without the constant upkeep of lip liner and stain throughout the evening?

Sheer lipsticks offer the best of both worlds since the colour is shiny and pigmented without requiring too many touch-ups throughout the day or night. If you want to start on your own collection, a blushing pink is a must-have since it’s interchangeable for every occasion, and will never go out of style.

Tips

  • Before applying each lipstick, it is essential to prep your lips with an exfoliator. Gently rub a clean toothbrush over both top and bottom lips, then finish off with a nourishing balm.
  • Since these lipsticks are all sheer, they don’t require a lip liner. Simply apply a thin coat to top and bottom lips, and you’re ready-to-go!
