Prep your lips by applying lip balm. Let it soak in for a few minutes then blot away any excess. If they’re too greasy the pencil line will bleed.
Using a lip pencil that’s as close to your lipstick shade as possible, draw a thin line around the natural curve of your lip. Don’t go over the line!
Then, using the same pencil, fill in your lips to create a stain. This will provide a good base for applying your lipstick and make it last longer.
Finally, use a lip brush to apply either a lipstick or lip gloss. Blot, using a tissue then reapply for staying power. Now you’re ready to pucker up!
