Simple Petal Lips Tutorial16:44:00
I love to apply lipstick in different ways and love mixing lip colors to create different new shades. Today am going to show you a quick and really simple tutorial on petal lips that can be worn any day. It's a very soft-focus lip tutorial with no harsh lip liners or something.
If we talk about the lip trend this season (winters 2013/2014), its all about wine,berry, dark plums and pinks that are more towards fuchsia. A more smudged and less perfect lip look is preferred this season. I noticed many international makeup artists used the petal-stained lip look at different fashion shows. Dark wine and berry colors are more noticeable this season, but for a more soft and feminine look different shades of pink are also used.
This season petal-stained and wine stained lips were popular on the ramp. Different makeup artists used wine, pink or crimson lipsticks with the darker color dabbed in the middle which was diffused towards the outer sides of lips. That kind of lip look makes me look washed out and very pale. Such lip colors give more like a vampy look to me. lol..!!! So I created a much simpler petal lips look that is decent, simple and very quick. I used only two lip colors to create this. One is "Revlon matte lipstick in mauve it over" and other is "ELF essential lipstick in Gypsy"
1.Start with well exfoliated lips. You can use any lip scrub, any soft tooth brush, or wet towel to exfoliate the lips and then apply your regular lip balm.
2. Now apply the Revlon matte lipstick in "mauve it over" all over your lips. You can use any nude color which you like. You can see that I didn't apply the lipstick properly in the mid of the lips. It's not important. Just focus more on the corners. Here is how the lips will look.

|ELF gypsy applied in the center of lips and blended|
|Foundation applied on the outline of lips|
There you have your soft-focus petal lips:
