1. Prep
Beautiful smooth lips need to be gently exfoliated on a regular basis to ensure even coverage and long-lasting effects. Follow exfoliation with a moisturizing balm.

2. Smooth
Use a cotton ball or swab to apply a little foundation along your lip border and blend. This creates the illusion of fullness, helps smooth your lip line and keeps your lipstick on longer. Blot very lightly with powder to set.

3. Line
Apply liner from the middle of the cupid’s bow of your lip to the outside border, covering your entire lip. Liner helps lipstick to stay on longer because it contains less wax.

4. Fill
Apply lipstick over lip liner with a lip brush, be sure not to go over the borders of your lips. Use lipstick that is the same color as the lip liner so the border isn’t an obvious different shade.

5. Blot
Blot your lips with a facial tissue, this will help press the lipstick onto the lip so it stays on longer. If desired, apply another layer of lipstick on top of that. If you want to accentuate the shape of your lips, apply a gloss to the middle of your lips.
