Hi guys! Today I am sharing my YSL Tatouage Couture lip routine with you. Since the Matte Lipstick trend appeared I’ve tried many of lipsticks but I always had to remove them after a couple of minutes because it felt like my lips got as dry as the Sahara Dessert.
So for me the Tatouage Couture is a revolution because it has a lightweight texture which gives me a naked-lip feel and doesn’t dry out my lips! Also as the name already implies its like a tattoo on your lips – it last for hours!
STEP 1: PREPARE YOUR LIPS
Exfoliate with a soft toothbrush or use a lip scrub to make your lips soft and even! Tipp: Use the YSL Top Secrets Lip Perfector as a primer, for an even better result! Expert Hint: Apply a thin layer 10 minutes before applying the lipstick!
STEP 2: HIGHLIGHT YOUR LIPS.
Contour the exterior of your lips with Touche Éclat and smooth it out. Perfectly shown in this video.
To define your natural lip line and to prevent your lipstick from getting smudged, use a good lip liner to define, reshape and perfect the contours of the lips. Don’t worry if the lines on the inside are slightly imperfect because the lipstick will cover them anyway, it’s the outer lines that matter.
STEP 4: APPLY THE TATOUAGE COUTURE
Once you finish all the above steps its time for the fun part! YSL created a new applicator for a very easy and accurate application. Use the high point of the tip of the applicator to line the lips and then turn it on its side to evenly spread it all over the lips. Works great!
About the colors: I am wearing No. 16 – NUDE EMBLEM in the pictures. I also really love No. 7 – NU INTERDIT, an amazing nude tone! My favorite red tones are: No. 9 – GRENAT NO RULES and No. 12 RED TRIBEN. A great orangy tone is: No. 2 -BLOOD ORANGE PACT! In Austria you will be able find the Tatougae Couture in 18 colors.
I hope you liked my little lip guide. (: Here are the products I’ve been using:
