WHAT YOU WILL NEED

Lip Balm / Conditioner
Concealer
Compact Powder
Lip Liner
Lipstick
Brushes

STEP 1. PREP YOUR LIPS

Apply a lip primer to create a smooth canvas, this will also make the colour last longer and avoid the colour from bleeding.

If you do not own lip primer try using a lip balm / condition to make your lips soft and supple. This will also help give you an even application for the lipstick and reduce crevices.

STEP 2. APPLY A BASE

Choose a concealer that is the same shade as your lip colour, and using a small fluffy or flat brush apply the concealer over both lips.

This step is optional but will help the colour stay on the lip longer.

STEP 3. LINE IT UP

Taking a lip liner that matches or complements your lipstick start from one corner to the other on both top to bottom drawing the outline of your lips.

Once you have lined both lips, fill the entire lip area with the same pencil. This helps hold the colour of the lipstick and will stay put for longer.

STEP 4. APPLY THE LIPSTICK

Apply an even amount of lipstick from the center of the lip starting at the cupid’s bow moving it onto the outer corners. Repeat the step above for the lower lip.

Filling in the rest of the lips apply the product within the outlines of where you have applied the lip pencil. To intensify the lip colour apply the product coat by coat to create your desired look.

STEP 5. DEFINE IT

 To make your lips more defined and correct the shape of your lips use a concealer on a small flat brush working on the edge of the lips blending it gently into the skin for the perfect finish.
