Here's how you can perfect the "blurred" look.

Unlike creating a winged liner or putting on falsies, using a lip tint is pretty easy. Most of us would simply apply a bit of the tint to the lips, spreading it using our fingers for that effortless type of look. But it turns out, there's a better way of applying your lip tint, especially if you have dry lips!

If your lip stain tends to look patchy, here are some useful tips we learned from Korean makeup artist and founder of Romand (a K-beauty brand that's known for their lip tints) Saerom Min:

1. Prep your lips!

Every night, Saerom Min recommends applying a liquid lip balm or lip mask, which will help loosen your dead skin. Using a cloth or a cotton pad, gently wipe your lips to get rid of flaky skin. This way, your lip tint will glide on smoothly and spread evenly.

2. First things first: Apply the lip tint to your bottom lip.

For an even application, avoid pressing your lips together to spread the tint. (Don't worry. We're guilty of this, too!)

Using your fingers, blend the outer edges of your puckers for that cute "blurred" effect.

Then, add another layer to the inner part of your lips. This will help you achieve that ~gradient~ look.

3. Time for the upper lip!

Repeating the second step, apply the lip tint to your entire upper lip. Then, add another layer of the product to the inner part of the lips. Don't forget to blend its outer edges using your fingers!
