Say good bye to your lipstick “feathuring” onto your face and hello to perfect perky lips. No matter what color you want on your lips, follow these 3 easy steps to get the perfect lip every time!
Step 1 – Concealer
Using my concealer brush with a small amount of concealer, I make back and forth motions along the outside edges of my lower lip. I focus on swiping my brush up to make my lips look perky. I don’t use my concealer brush along the middle of the lower lip, only the outside. This will help create a full bottom lip.
Step 2 – Lip Liner
This is the only lipliner I use for all of my lipsticks. It’s a clear wax lipliner from OCC. The clear wax creates a barrier on the edge of the lip, so the lipstick can not “feather” onto the face. Apply to top and bottom lip. You don’t have to be perfect with this, it can be a little messy and it won’t make a difference in the final look.
Step 3 – Lipstick + Lipgloss
Apply the lipstick carefully, it’s going to be exactly where you put it for several hours. Make sure the lipstick is even and don’t apply to much, we don’t want it to look cakey or come off on your teeth. Lipgloss is optional. I love the look of a glossy lip and I like the extra moisture.
