Make sure lips are moistened with a lip balm since skin in this area is prone to dryness (my fave is Rosebud Salve Lip Balm. 8oz Tin). Apply a lip liner that is the same color or in the same color family as the lip color you chose. Apply a small amount of foundation to your lips to create an even base and mute out your natural lip pigmentation. In addition, it will help the lip color stand out. Use a lip brush to apply the lip color. The brush will give your lips not only a fuller effect, but it will cover all parts of the lip that the actual lipstick applicator may not reach. Covering all the NOOKS and CRANNIES of the lip is a must! For a finishing touch, lightly apply a lip gloss (my fave mac clear lip glass) across the lips to seal it all in! Then its complete.
