Discover How To Apply Liquid Lipstick Flawlessly

  1. Makeup remover in a clear bottle with text on it that reads, 'Take it all off' with a white-coloured lid.

    Step 1: Cleanse your Lips with Makeup Remover

    Liquid lipstick should be applied after your base and eye products and before blush and setting spray. When applying makeup, foundation and concealer can transfer onto your lips, so before you reach for one of my matte-meets-moisture liquid lipsticks, use my Take It All Off makeup remover to gently dissolve any makeup from your lips.

    With my SHAKE, SOAK and SWIPE technique, activate Take It All Off by gently shaking the bottle and then soak a gentle cotton pad with the makeup-melting formula. Dab your cotton pad onto the lips – being careful not to disrupt your foundation – and let the conditioning formula remove even long-wearing makeup.

    Tilbury Tip: If the foundation around your mouth is accidently removed, take Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer on the Lip Brush and precisely sketch around the shape of your lips to restore your flawless-looking base.

  2. A lip oil in a white coloured tube with reflective geometric patterns on it in silver colour and a rose-gold-coloured lid.

    Step 2: Hydrate and Condition your Lips

    Before applying any lip product, it’s important to hydrate and condition your lips with a skincare-infused lip oil like Charlotte’s Magic Lip Oil Crystal Elixir. Your liquid lipstick will look its best when applied onto well-nourished lips that look smooth and cushiony, and gliding on my magical, moisture-rich lip oil is an easy way to prep your lips before applying liquid lipstick.

    Squeeze the tube of Charlotte’s Magic Lip Oil Crystal Elixir to release the silky-smooth oil formula, then trace along the lips with the rollerball tip for instant hydration. The formula has the strength of a serum and the comfort of the oil, caring for the lips with my moisturising Magic 8 of skincare ingredients to feel an instant revival. It’s also infused with Swertian Leaf Extract which actively helps to reduce the appearance of lip lines, so your matte lipstick can look even smoother and more seamless.

    How to Create a Blurred Liquid Lipstick Look - Cloud Lips

    First, discover how to wear Airbrush Flawless Lip Blur for beautifully blurred cloud lips:

    To create the dreamily diffused look of cloud lips, apply Airbrush Flawless Lip Blur blurred. Apply liquid lipstick to the centre of the lips using the diamond-shaped applicator and swipe effortlessly towards the corners of the mouth to give your pout instant, full-coverage lip colour. Once you’ve applied your favourite shade, take your ring finger and gently blot the edges of your lips to get the soft, summertime look of cloud lips – the goal is to create an ethereal, just-kissed gradient that leaves the lips looking beautifully blurred like a wispy cloud.
