Step 1: Before you begin, it’s very important to prepare and moisturise your lips. In order to remove any dead skin cells and have a smooth surface to work on, apply your favourite scrub onto a clean toothbrush and use a circular motion to gently exfoliate your lips.
Step 2: Next, grab your non-oily lip balm and apply it from the centre of the lip first towards the corners.
Step 3: Add a light layer of your favourite highlighter in a dotting style across your upper lip.
Step 4: Then, use the finger or a blending brush to gently blend the highlighter.
Step 5: Line the lips with a purple liner, preferably light colour. Investing in a high quality brand will make your makeup last longer and your lips look fuller all day.
Step 6: Again, apply the product using short, light strokes across your upper lip.
Step 7: Do the same for the lower lip. Don’t go too close to the outline! If you do, you will lose the effect that you are trying to achieve and you will have to start over.
Step 8: Create a base with a violet lipstick and fill in the lips with short strokes from outline to centre.
Step 9: When you fill in your lips with the pencil, gently blend it with your fingertip using circular motions.
Step 10: As a final step, apply your favourite purple lip gloss all over!
Have a look at the finished look! If you want a more dramatic look, then use a darker pencil and lighter lipstick. The choice is yours on how subtle or dramatic you want your lips to appear. Also, this type of technique can be used for any lipstick colour. You can create this look with light lipsticks or darker ones. Just follow the steps above and see what suits you best.
