Help! How Do I Get Pale Lip Colours To Show Up On Pigmented Lips?

Have you fallen in love with a pale or sheer lipstick/gloss and are afraid it won’t show up at all on your pigmented lips? Or maybe it does show up but your natural lip colour gives it a brownish/purplish tint? That can be really annoying, but luckily it is easy to fix.

How to get pale lip colours to show up on pigmented lips

All you need to do is apply a thin layer of concealer or foundation to your lips before you apply your lipstick or gloss. This will cover up your natural lip colour and allow your favourite shades to apply true to colour. If you find that your concealer or foundation is too drying, dab on some lip balm to moisturize your lips. Or use a nude lip liner instead. That will do the trick too.

Do you have dark lips? If so, what do you do to get lipsticks and glosses to show up true to colour on your lips?

      Aya, I think the concealer is slightly more effective too but a lip liner will do in most occasions. :)

      Makeup Morsels, oh no, I’m sorry about your allergic reaction. I usually use a cheap lip liner from Wet n Wild. I don’t like to spend a lot of money on lip liners and Wet n Wild ones do a good job for the price.

      Xin, yes, the taste is not that good, which is why I prefer to use a nude lip liner. Still, it does the trick. :)

      Renea, I’m sorry to hear that. Have you tried to apply a thin layer of concealer on your lips before applying lipstick. The concealer will neutralize your natural lip colour and ensure that your lipstick applies true to colour. Hope this helps.
