What is Lip Stain?

Lip stains are a type of cosmetic product that are applied to the lips to give them color and oftentimes a glossy finish. They come in a variety of colors and shades and can be found in both liquid and gel formulas. Lip stains can be applied with a brush or directly from the bottle/tube. Some lip stains also come with a built-in applicator.

Lip stains are typically long-wearing, meaning they will last for several hours without needing to be reapplied. They can also be waterproof, making them ideal for those who want their color to last through eating and drinking.

When choosing a lip stain, it is important to find one that suits your skin tone and personal preference. It is also important to make sure that the lip stain you choose is compatible with your other makeup products, such as your lipstick or lip gloss.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Lip Stain Shade

When it comes to choosing a lip stain shade, there are a few factors you need to take into consideration. Here are the main ones:

Your skin tone:

This is probably the most important factor when it comes to choosing a lip color. You want to make sure that the shade you choose compliments your skin tone, otherwise it runs the risk of washing you out or dulling your complexion. If you're not sure what shades work best for your skin tone, consult a makeup artist or simply experiment until you find something that looks good.

The occasion:

Another important factor to consider is the occasion. If you're going for a more natural look, then a nude or light pink shade would be best. However, if you're looking for something more dramatic, then you can go for a darker shade like red or burgundy. It's all about finding the right balance for the occasion.

Your personal preference:

At the end of the day, it's important to choose a shade that you personally like and feel comfortable wearing. It doesn't matter if it's trendy or not, if you don't like it then don't wear it! Experiment with different shades until you find one that YOU love.

How To Apply Lip Stain Correctly

Lip stains are one of the hottest new beauty trends, and for good reason! They’re long lasting, hassle free, and incredibly versatile. But if you’ve never used a lip stain before, the process can seem a little daunting. We’re here to help you get the perfect pout with our guide to applying lip stain correctly.

Before you start, it’s important to choose the right lip stain for your skin tone. If you have fair skin, go for a light pink or nude shade such as au Naturale’s Su/Stain Semi-Matte Lip Stain color Paris. If you have medium skin, try a coral or orange-hued stain, try au Naturale’s Su/Stain Semi-Matte Lip Stain color Bangkok. And if you have dark skin, go for a deep berry or red shade. Once you’ve found your perfect color, it’s time to apply!

Start by exfoliating your lips with a sugar scrub or lip balm to remove any dead skin cells. This will help the lip stain go on evenly and last longer. Next, apply the lip stain directly to your lips using the applicator wand. Be sure to start in the center of your lips and work your way out toward the edges. Allow the stain to dry for a few minutes before adding any additional colors or topcoats.

And that’s it! With just a few simple steps, you can achieve a long-lasting color that will leave your lips looking gorgeous all day long.
