With a little practice you can apply the lipstick perfectly. Since you need a steady hand. You may place the elbow on the make-up table while you work with the hand holding the lip brush. With the other hand, you may support your chin. Lip colors look different on every face and always complement the natural skin tone. If you want your lip color to last longer apply the base foundation first. The base foundation serves as a protective covering. Powder your lips very lightly and outline your lips using a lip pencil. For the upper lip, start from the centre and line outwards. For the lower lip, outline from side to side stroke your brush or applicator on the lipstick and proceed to fill the lips with color. Once again, begin with the centre of the upper lip and move to the sides. On the lower lip, color in from side to side. Blot with tissue by placing the folded tissue in between the lips and pressing them together. Lip liners may be used for correcting the lip shape and to prevent lipstick from smudging the lip line. Reapply color: For that extra glossy shine - apply frosted highlighter or gloss on the centre bottom lips.

Shaping lips

• Thin lips or less broad lips may be easily corrected by outlining them with a lip pencil a little outside the natural lip line. Alternatively, lip gloss may be applied on the upper lip. This will lend a fuller appearance to your lips.
• Outline crooked lips either below or above the natural shape depending on the fault.
• Full, thick lips Line your lips inside the natural shape with a lighter shade of lipstick and fill in the outline with a shade brighter. Lipstick with a rotate finish helps to give the illusion of smaller lips. To obtain a matt finish look, apply lipstick and then place a thin tissue over your lips. Now dust powder over on it. Remove the tissue.
• If your lip line is droopy, outline it upwards with the lip pencil in a shade slightly darker than your lip color. Use lip gloss to touch up the centre.
