Here is a guide that will help you look like a glam Goth:

  • Make sure your lips are moisturized with a thin layer of any lip balm and Vaseline of your choice.
  • Use a lip liner that matches your lipstick, lightly trace the inner part of your lips and make sure it’s neat.
  • Apply the desired lippie in the middle part of your lip. Gently slide on each sides and make sure not to smudge it up.

The difference between matte and gloss

The trickiest part of buying make up is not knowing the difference between a matte and glossy lippie finish. With so many formulas and finishes, lipstick comes in a wide range of shapes, sizes and aroma. It’s a challenging task but there are so many options available. Opt for a glossy look if you suffer from dry lips, try to avoid matte brands because once applied they cause thin cracks on your lips and you might end up bleeding. However, if you want a more subtle look that lasts longer and gives you perfect coverage, go for matte.
