How to apply lipstick

  1. First prime your lips with a good base of foundation and powder to remove all color from your lips.

  2. Outline your lips with a lip pencil-The same shade or just a shade darker than your lipstick. Define the center curve on the upper lip with two precise strokes.
  3. Continue the line of the upper lip, keeping your mouth closed and relaxed. Use short strokes, as they are easier than a continuous line on the lower lip. Work from the center to the corners.

  4. Work some lipstick into a brush and fill the outline of the lips. Work gradually towards the outline; don't cover it with a lipstick.

  5. Open your mouth wide and brush the color into the corners, so that there are no unfinished edges. Blot with a tissue paper.

  6. Touch up with some more color. For a more natural look for the daytime, blot again lightly with a tissue. But if you like the shimmer on your lips for the evening, do not blot after the final application.


You may also use the tip of your lipstick to outline your lips and then fill them. Remember not to use the tip to fill the lips.

Removing lipstick
