STEP 1

Exfoliate lips to remove any dead skin and avoid your lipstick caking up, then smooth with a little primer.

STEP 2

Starting at the outer corner, line the lips, working your way along the natural lip line. Draw a cross shape on the cupid’s bow and then colour in the full lips before blotting.

STEP 3

Smile to stretch lips while applying so it gives full coverage and gets into the creases for a much fuller pout. Work the colour from the middle out to the lip line and blot.
