Just like your face, your lips need to be prep before applying any lipsticks. If you have the time, scrub your lips first. Then, apply a layer of lip balm to soften the lips and make them supple.

Step 2: Apply Lip Primer


Apply lip primer to ensure the lip colour stays longer and doesn’t bleed easily.

Step 3: Put on Your Base

Why do we put a base, you ask? This is so that we can even out our lip colours. Choose a concealer with a shade that is closest or matches your lip colour, and apply it with a flat brush. Don’t forget to apply some compact powder over it to seal the concealer.

Step 4: Line Your Lips

Get a lip liner that matches or complements your lipstick and carefully line your lips. This is to prevent your lipsticks from feathering. Outline your lips from one corner to another corner on both upper and lower lips.

Step 5: Fill the Lips with Lip Liner

Though it is called a lip liner, you can actually fill up your lips with the lip liner. By doing so, it will hold the colour of your lipstick and make sure the colour stays longer.

Step 6: Apply Your Lipstick

How To Apply Lip Gloss

Once you are satisfied with your liner, it’s time to apply your lipstick! Take a lip brush and brush it over the lipstick of your choice, and apply it on your lips. Always start from the center of your upper lip and move outwards to the outer corners. Repeat the same process for your lower lip. Take your time to apply your lipsticks and make sure you apply it within the outlines of your liner.

Apply the lipsticks in layer so you can control the intensity of the colour.

Step 7: Define Your Lips

Use a flat brush and clean up your lips by working on the edges of the lips. Gently blend the concealer and make sure it blends well into the skin. Not only you are cleaning up any lipstick that has “bleed” out of the liner, but you are also correcting the shape of your lips and defining it.
