Tutorial – Lips

This tutorial is designed to show you how to apply lip liner, lipstick, and lipgloss to create full, plump looking lips.

Skill Level: Beginner

Products used: Pink Treat cremestick liner, Mari-sheeno lipstick, Poetique lipglass

When applying foundation to your face, feel free to buff a little bit of the excess onto your lips. This acts as a primer, if you will, and it will also help intensify the color of sheerer lipsticks and glosses. You could also use products like MAC’s Prep and Prime Lip.

Apply Pink Treat cremestick liner around lips, making sure to stay within the boundries of your lip. My lips are fairly full as is, so the last thing I want to do is line outside of my natural lip line! You can see that I wobbled and got some liner on the bottom lip – not a problem. Liner helps lipstick from bleeding and increases its staying power, but it does not need to be precise necessarily.

Apply Mari-sheeno lipstick over lips, staying inside the lines, and gently going over the lines to help blend the Pink Treat cremestick liner into the lip color. We aim for precision, but if you aren’t perfect, it’s okay – we still have one more layer to go. If you don’t want to top with a gloss, use a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover to clean up any frayed edges or a lip brush to help fill in remaining portions (like in the picture: the bottom left portion of the lip is a bit sheer compared to the rest of the lip).

Apply Poetique lipglass all over the lips, using the brush/wand to blend all three lip components together for a glossy lip.

This is your finished product.
