Step 1: Outline to perfection
This seems really simple until you pick up that pencil and your hand is shaking like you're about to go into surgery. Dramatic? I know. Just relax and try and follow within the lines of your lips to the best of your ability. Make sure your lipstick pencil is the same shade as your actual lipstick. It helps to buy the lipstick and pencil in the same packaging.
Step 2: Apply Your Lipstick
This is the easiest and hardest part because you are basically just moving the lipstick across your lips but you also have make sure that the lipstick does not stray from your lip line,that is why you need to apply lip liner first, to help you.
Choose between gloss or matte:
You would have already made this choice in the beginning but if you want to make any changes, here are some suggestions.
If you want a matte lip, it is best to just buy a matte red lipstick and you can make your lipstick even more matte by dabbing a tissue on your lips.
If you want gloss lips, you can apply red lipstick and then apply red or clear lip gloss over it.
You can then make your red lips pop by applying concealer around your red lips with a small makeup brush. You can use any concealer you have.
That's a wrap!!
