- Make an “X” in the center of cupid’s bow (yes that’s what it’s called, I don’t make this shit up). This is going to be how you get that coveted definition at the top of your lips.
- line the outer corners of your lips making sure you don’t go past your natural lip line.
- Line the very bottom, center part of your lip. Do not over-compensate here! This is where, if you don’t follow your natural lip line, you are going to look like you had a run-in with a vacuum cleaner hose.
- Line the rest of your outer lips connecting the lines you made in steps 1-3.
For extra long-lasting lipstick fill in your entire lips with the liner before applying lipstick.
