Lip Tip #3--Application

Now that you've prepped your lips and found the perfect red lipstick, let's talk about flawless application.

When all eyes are on your lips, you want them to look fabulous.

Start with a lip liner that closely matches your  your lipstick, or a reverse lip liner. Blend the line into your lips using a lip brush. Fill in the rest of your lips with the lip liner--this acts a base and will help your lipstick last longer. Apply lipstick with a brush for more precision. Blot your lips and lightly powder with your face powder, reapply lipstick. Super glossy generally doesn't work well with reds; if you want to add a little shine, just dab some clear gloss in the center of your lower lip. This also makes your lips appear bigger.
