If you’re Latina, you’ve most likely heard your mom or abuela tell you to keep tus labios hydrated. On that note, always prep your lips with a nourishing lip balm, like LUNA MAGIC's Lip Balm Duo, for a smooth and hydrated canvas. Apply a thin layer before applying your bullet lipstick to ensure a comfortable and moisturized feel throughout the day.
2. Lip Liner for Definition

To achieve a crisp and defined lip shape, don't skip the lip liner. Choose a shade that matches your lipstick, or opt for a neutral shade that complements various hues. Lining your lips not only enhances the longevity of your lipstick but also prevents feathering or bleeding.
3. Blotting for Longevity

To make your lipstick last even longer, try the blotting technique. After applying your lipstick, gently press a tissue against your lips and lightly dust translucent powder over it. This trick helps to set the color and absorb excess oils, resulting in a matte finish that lasts hours.
4. Ombré Lips for Dimension

Add depth and dimension to your lips by creating an ombré effect. Start by applying a darker shade on the outer corners of your lips and a lighter shade in the center. Pucker and gently blend the colors for a seamless gradient. LUNA MAGIC's Red Collection Bullet Lipstick offers different shades that can be mixed and matched to achieve stunning ombré looks.
5. Creating Custom Shades
Get creative and experiment with custom lip colors. Don't limit yourself to the shades you have in your collection. Mix different shades to create your own unique hue, like a mauve blended with LUNA MAGIC's Matte Liquid Lipstick in ‘Gostosa.’
