1day beauty: guide to flawless liquid velvet application
Hi guys! Corinne here. Sharing my favourite way to apply our Liquid Velvets for a flawless application.
With 7 shades to choose from, you've got options. My recommendation is always to go for a shade that is slightly darker than your complexion to achieve that my lips but better look. If you need help finding a shade, you can message @1daybeautyco directly, live chat with us here, or shoot us an email at email@example.com. As someone with a medium complexion, my go-to is Sand lipliner X Dainty liquid velvet.
Lets get started!
STEP 1: EXFOLIATE
Exfoliate your lips! (1day beauty lip scrub coming soon). Don't skip this step! You want your liquid velvet to apply as smoothly as possible, and starting with exfoliated lips ensures you'll have the perfect canvas.
STEP 2: HYDRATE
Hydrate your lips with your favourite lip balm! I LOVE dabbing a conservative amount of Cat Calls to the centre of my lips. Because its enriched with rich emollients, it preps my lips with the perfect boost of hydration.
STEP 3: APPLY
Start by filling in your bottom lip with one dip of your liquid velvet. Our liquid velvets really are a one-dip-wonder, and you'll get full colour payoff with one swipe.
STEP 4: PRESS
Step 4: Press your lips together to distribute some of the pigment to your upper lip. This is my favourite trick for avoiding excess product.
STEP 5: DEFINE
Line the outer edge of your cupid’s bow while transitioning to the outer edges of your upper lip. You can use the doe-foot of your liquid velvet, or a lip brush for a more precise finish.
STEP 6: FINISH
Finish with 1day beauty topper of choice. For a satin finish, try our lipliners. For a glossy finish, top with Cat Calls.
