Korean water-based gel tints that fully express sweet lips with a deep, rich ice cream color. They have the characteristic of giving you color without texture that is imposed on the lips.
Among the outstanding novelties are the lip tints, which are also found with names such as lip tint, lip tattoo (for the most intense ones) or lip stain, a name reserved for those who hardly leave an impression.
How to get the most out of them? Easy by following these steps…
1. The right preparation:
In the case of very dry lips, or those that tend to crack, it is important to prepare the mouth beforehand by moisturizing it thoroughly. It is as simple as applying a balm, massaging it lightly and letting it act for at least five minutes. Then, the excess is removed and voila!
2. Just the time to repent.
The inks do not contain greasy agents, so once they dry, they remain fixed. Therefore, if the stroke goes wrong when applying makeup, it must be corrected immediately. Then it is very difficult!
3. Alone… or accompanied?
One of the great advantages of lip tints is their dual character. They can be used alone, to achieve a matte color effect, or as a base. Because they last a long, long time, they can first be applied to bare lips and, once they’re dry, spread our favorite lipstick over them. Thus, as the color fades, the color of the ink will remain below.
4. Better little by little
Inks can be tricky: because they contain a lot of volatile agents, the color appears smoother as soon as you apply it. But then it can be super intense! For this reason, a thin layer should be spread first, let at least three minutes pass, and repeat the application if more intensity is desired.
5. The perfect ally for mouths
This style of makeup for the mouth, straight out of K Beauty, consists of graduating the intensity of color on the lips, with a more intense heart and much lighter contours, until it almost blends with the lip. For this effect, it is essential to have a product that is not only matte, but also fixed, as is the case with inks.
