How To Apply Lip Liner, Lipstick & Lipgloss ~ Tutorial


Here's a requested tutorial on how to apply lip products & get that perfect pout. 
I'll be using these products:
eos Honeysuckle Honeydew Lip balm, Bourjois Levres Contour Lip liner in #11 Enjoleuse, Bourjois Sweet Kiss Naturel Lipstick #06 Rose Tendre, The Body Shop Retractable lip brush, , Bourjois Effet 4D Gloss #64 Rose Metallise


Step 1:  Prep Lips
Prep your lips by applying your favorite lip balm for smooth application. If the lip balm is too glossy, pat excess with a tissue, to prepare your lips for lip liner.


Step 2: Lip Liner
A mistake-proof way of applying lip liner, is to smile with your mouth closed. Start at the center of your bottom lip...then draw from the outer corners from each side and join with the line you've drawn on the center. Line your upper lips starting with your cupids bow & then do the sides like you did on your bottom lip. Fill your lips with the lip liner. The lip liner will act as a base and help your lipstick stay longer. But if your lip liner matches your lipstick, it's fine if you don't fill all over your lips.

Step 3: Lipstick
Don't stop smiling yet! Apply lipstick right out of the tube, or use a lip brush if you want a lighter and even finish.


Step 4: Lipgloss
To make your lips look fuller, apply lipgloss only on the center of your bottom lip & cupid's bow. If you prefer to apply gloss all over, that's fine too...no rules :)
** I suggest you avoid locking your lips too much/tightly in between applications to prevent streaking and unevenness. 

And you're done! Muah...!

  13. U've always been my make-up guru, so what can I say:) BTW..I got the naked eye palette from Urban Decay. The colours r gr8, can mix and match for day or night look too, but still not sure whether it was worth all that fuss. I mean I love it, but still it's not the end of the world:)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
