1- Apply a concealer or eye primer to the lip to nude out your natural color and to help hold the lip liner an lipsticks in place.
2- Take your lip liner and start shaping the bow of the lip. Then proceed to shade under neath the line to create depth.
3- Drag lip pencil very very lightly down the lip line towards the corner of the mouth. This shouldn't look like a defined line at all, just a small touch of shade.
4- Move to the bottom lip and start in the center of the bottom lip line and very softly drag the lip pencil up the lip line towards the corners of the mouth. Again, only a soft shade.
5- Softly shade the outer corners of the lip and start shading the space in between where your lips meet. Go all the way from one corner of the mouth to the other.
6- Next I blend the liner with my finger for a very blended look. I want my lips to look full, not lined.
7- I take my nude lipstick and apply it with a longer flat eyeshadow brush because the round edge fits perfectly into the shape of the lip. I use the brush to lightly blend the lip color on.
8- Lastly, I take the same brush and grab my bright coral lipstick and apply the coral color with the brush to the center of my bottom and top lip for a pop.
Taking these steps will give you a natural looking shape and volume to the lips. Not all liner needs to be dramatic. It can be used to emphasize your natural lip shape which in my opinion.. looks better. Enjoy!
