begin with a fresh canvas. this means applying your liquid foundation over your lips and dusting with a pressed powder. doing so allows you to create your desired shape or stick to the shape you already have.
choose your colors. i am using Revlon ColorStay pencils in Red and Nude.
outline your lip shape with your red. my upper lip is a bit thin so i go just slightly outside my natural lip line.
take your nude color and pencil over red outline and fill in the rest of your lip. don't worry about being too uneven, applying a gloss once finished "glosses" over any imperfections.
present your pout. here's mine, colored in and glossed out.
|i tried smiling but then you couldn't see the color as well. this awkward stare will have to make do.|
