You can make lips that create youthfulness depending on your technique
Plump, full lips are a symbol of femininity. For the Arafif generation, where aging signs such as dullness and dryness are noticeable, lip makeup that restores plumpness and a good complexion is necessary. The right amount of thickness and the corners of the mouth that are full of happiness can be achieved depending on the technique. Create soft lips that look youthful and look good with a smile.
How to apply adult lipstick
[Step 1] After moisturizing, erase the outline with foundation
Dry lips and noticeable vertical wrinkles… For such signs of aging, moisturizing before applying lip makeup is important. During your skin care routine, apply lotion to your lips before applying lip balm to restore luster and exfoliate.
Apply a thin layer of foundation or concealer to the contours of your moisturized lips. By erasing the boundary between the skin and lips and blurring them vaguely, you are ready to correct the lip troubles of the arafif generation.
[Step 2] Dot the lip in 3 places in the center
Plump lip peaks give a richer and more feminine impression. Apply lipstick directly from the lipstick to the two central areas below the peak of the upper lip and one central area of the lower lip. It has the effect of making the lips look three-dimensional by having a dark color in the position where it can be seen from the front.
[Step 3] Quickly apply lipstick with the “A” mouth
Start applying from the corners of your mouth toward the area where you placed three lipsticks in Step 2. By having a fixed end point, you can reduce the number of lip makeup failures.
While opening your mouth in an “ah” shape, apply lipstick from the corners of your lower lip to the center, then from the corners of your upper lip to the center.
[Step 4] Blend the lip color with your mouth
Put your upper and lower lips together so that they form the shape of the “n” sound. Move your lips left and right to spread the applied lipstick over the entire area and let it blend naturally.
[Step 5] Erase the lower corners of the mouth with concealer
The muscles around the mouth weaken with age. The corners of the lips tend to droop and the lips of the arafif generation tend to look older, so it is better to use a concealer with more coverage than foundation to erase the drooping corners. Lips with tight corners are full of happiness and give a lively impression. Aim for a gentle smile on your lips.
[Step 6] Add upper lip with lip pencil
Use a lip pencil to draw the “pseudo-mouth corners”. By re-drawing the corners of the mouth so that it protrudes from the edge of the upper lip, the corners of the mouth look raised, giving the impression of a smile.
For those who feel that their lips have lost some volume, draw over the lips to make them look fuller.
On the other hand, if you have thick lips, apply lip balm on top of your lips to blur the outline.

Recommended lipsticks and lip liners for adult lip makeup
If you can’t decide which lipstick color to choose, avoid whitish colors and choose a slightly dull color. Bright colors look good when you are young, but lip colors with dullness are more natural for mature skin that is starting to get dull.
The lipstick also serves as a link to the outfit, so for example, if you want to wear it as an accessory, you can wear it in bright red, and if you wear yellowish clothes, you can choose orange or coral.
