Not sure the best way to get a long-lasting look on your lips? Here’s how:
Start by putting on some lip balm at least five to 10 minutes before you plan to put on your lip liner, gloss and/or lipstick. I used a balm by Yes to Carrots.
Before you begin to put on your lip products, wipe off most of the lip balm. You want the balm to soften your lips, but not get in the way of your product sticking to your lips.
Start with lip liner to give your product something to stick to.
To line your lips, use short strokes to trace around the border of your lips. I usually start from the center and work outward.
When you’ve finished outlining the border of your lips, fill in your whole lip with the pencil.
Next, add your lipstick and/or lip gloss. Press your lips together as you go.
Use a cotton bud or bit of toilet paper to clean up any goofs.
For this look I used a Stila Lip Glaze, but you could always apply a lipstick then gloss over the top. If you apply a lipstick, try out this powder trick I posted about last year to help it last longer.
Enjoy your perfect pout!
