Tips & Tricks: How to Get Flawless Vampy Lips (VIDEO)

Hello Gals!

A couple of posts ago, I shared with you a few of my favourite vampy lip shades...you can take a peek here. 

Today I want to give you all some quick tips on how to achieve sculpted and sexy vampy lips. These tips are not limited to just vampy shades, they are really a good guideline for any bold lip colour that you wish to sport.

Makeup tutorial on how to get flawless Vampy lips





Exfoliate: This is such an important step as wearing a bold lip colour instantly brings attention to your lips and the last thing that you want people to notice is dry flaky lips....so not cute! Exfoliating will ensure that your lips are smooth, flake free and supple before adding your lip shade.  

Moisturize: Apply a thin layer of lip balm to your lips  after exfoliating to keep them  hydrated, then gently blot with a tissue to remove any excess glossiness. 

Prime: Next apply a lip primer, this will help lock the moisture into your lips at the same time it will provide a barrier and create a smooth base for lipstick application. Some primers will also prolong and intensify your lip shade, which is always a plus.

Apply Lip Liner: Now line the outer perimeter of your lips to define and sculpt the edges.

Fill In Lips: This step is totally optional however, shading in the lips with the a lip pencil first prolongs and intensifies your lipstick. I personally swear by this step as you can eat and drink and you lips won't fade. 

Apply Lipstick: Now that you have prepped your lips, it is time to apply your fav vampy lip shade. I find apply it straight from the tube gives me the best results.

Clean and Sculpt: The final step is to clean up around the edges, where you may have coloured outside the lines :) Take a q-tip with a little makeup remover, be sure it is oil free, and clean up any mistakes. Now take a lip brush with a little concealer and go around the edges of your lips, this will gie you lips a crisp finish.

Finishing Touch: Add a little highlighter to the cupids bow of your lip to define and make them look supple.

The end result.... Beautifully sculpted, sexy vampy lips!

Thanks for watching Gals!

  1. Yay to another video and completely agree with all your steps and tips here, Keisha. I do almost all of it with the exception of using primer and filling in the whole lips with lip liner. I should try adding both steps into my routine and see what differences it makes. Thank you!

    1. Oh my gosh Deedee, that has happened to me once where my model has had really dry lips...so difficult. Ever since then I carry a lip scrub in my kit so I can exfoliate my models on the spot if they have dry flaky lips. Thanks for watching!
