1. Use Chapstick and a toothbrush to exfoliate your lips
Coat your lips with your favourite Chapstick then use a new toothbrush to slough off dead skin from lips. Finish by wiping lips clean with a cleansing towelettes or a damp paper towel.
2. Use a concealer as a lip primer and set with a translucent powder.
Prep your lips for lipstick by pressing a nude concealer into your lips using your finger. Set the concealer with a translucent powder.
3. Use a lip liner as a base.
Line your lips and fill in the base with a lip liner that is one shade darker than the lipstick you plan to wear. Before drawing a line with the lip pencil, begin by dotting it at various points along the outline of your lips. Then, drawing very lightly, use the liner to connect the dots.
4. Make any lipstick matte.
Take any lipstick from cream to matte by topping the lipstick shade with a mattifying product. Apply with your fingers for easy application.
5. Blot with your finger to avoid lipstick-stained teeth.
After applying lipstick, cup your lips around your index finger and draw your finger out to remove any excess lipstick.
6. Clean up your lips with concealer.
Trace the perimeter of your lips with your favourite concealer to perfect smudged or bleeding lipstick.
7. Use translucent powder to make lipstick kiss-proof.
Dust lips with a translucent powder to improve longevity of lipstick and prevent colour transfer throughout the day.
