Some call it a Popsicle lip, others refer to it as a gradient or blotted lip. Regardless, blurring the edges of your lipstick or lip tint, like Peripera Ink Airy Velvet, is sure to give you a soft, anti-liner vibe. Instead of using your germy fingers to create the look, Ciucci advises grabbing a small Beautyblender instead. After swiping your preferred lip product onto the center of your lips, work the pigment outward with the sponge.
Fix Your Glitz
Whether you’re using a glitter balm, such as Lemonhead LA Spacejam or a pot of loose glitter to add some twinkle to your look, a beauty sponge could help you minimize mess and maximize your sparkle. “It grips more product and disperses it evenly,” Ciucci explains. Be sure to use a spare, damp one, though, because washing away all the glitter from a sponge could be tricky.
