Let’s be real: A girl can never have too many shades of lipstick at her disposal. But as a lipstick lover, you’ve probably come across a variety of issues from fading to getting color on your teeth. Ugh, so annoying! It turns out that there are some common mistakes you could be making when it comes to applying lipstick that are preventing you from getting the gorgeous pout you’re after. From choosing the wrong lip liner to swiping your color on the wrong way, here are five lipstick mistakes you could be making. 

#1: Choosing a Lip Liner That Is Way Too Dark

Lip liner lesson 101: Unless you want your lips to look like a coloring book that needs to be filled in, don’t choose a liner that is too dark. Avoid this questionable look completely by choosing a lip liner that either matches your lipstick color or is in the same color family of the hue. In order to achieve a well-defined lip with a deep liner, color in the entire lip—yep, both the top and bottom. Filling in your lips with the liner can help give your lipstick a smooth base and also help you avoid the “ring around the mouth” look once your color starts to fade. After you’ve finished applying lip liner, blend your lipstick all the way to the edge of the liner to get a seamless look. Need a lip liner rec? Try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lip Liner

#2: Applying Lipstick Starting at the Corners of Your Mouth

Think about where you start when you apply lipstick: There’s a good chance it could be at the corners of your mouth. But where you start applying your lipstick actually matters. A good rule of thumb to follow: Always apply lipstick starting at the center of your lips, moving outwards. If you start at the corners of your mouth, you can end up drawing it outside the lines. Starting at the center and moving outwards affords you more control.  

#3: Not Creating a Cupid’s Bow the Right Way

Follow these five easy steps to get the perfect lipstick application, including defining your cupid’s bow, each and every time. 

Step 1: Find the highest point of your natural lip and draw a straight line extending down from that point with lip liner. Do the same thing on the other side of your top lip to create an X.
Step 2: Define your bottom lip. Now that you’ve create an X, you’ll see that the center of your bottom lip is directly below the center of the X you just created. Create the next line across that point to define your bottom lip. 

Step 3: You’re going to make two Vs. Part your lips slightly, and draw a sideways V connecting your top and bottom lips at both corners of your mouth.

Step 4: Use short strokes of the pencil to connect the lines together. For precise application, angle the pencil and hold it vertically, flat against the lip, with the tip of the liner pointing outward.

Step 5: Finally, it’s time to fill in the lips with your lipstick. Go over your cupid’s bow with a swipe of lipstick and you’re all set. 

#4: Choosing a Color That Makes Your Lips Look Smaller

It’s time to figure out what colors can make your lips look fuller, not smaller. Have naturally thin lips? Choosing a bold shade may not a good idea, since this can have the opposite effect of what you want. Instead, opt for a bright shade that has transparency and shine to help make your lips look fuller.

#5: Not Taking the Rest of Your Look into Account

When choosing a lip color, think about the rest of your outfit and how the hues will play against each other. For example, if you’re wearing a red dress, it might be a good idea to try that bright pink lipstick another time since the two might clash. Or, if you’re going for a bold smoky eye, let that be the center of attention by choosing a nude lip.
