3 Cross bow:
Draw an X on your cupid’s bow, i.e. the centre of your upper lip with a lip liner of your choice and then fully line your lips. This accentuates the shape of your mouth and makes your lipstick last longer.
4 Matte over gloss:
Give your glossy lips a matte finish. Cover your lips with a normal tissue and put some translucent powder on it using a brush. This helps your lip colour stay longer but also lends a matte finish to it.
5 The pout effect:
Cover your lips with concealer and trace just outside the natural lip line. Fill in your lips with a lip pencil and gloss to make them look fuller. You are now ready to take the perfect pout selfie.
6 Avoid excess colour:
To get rid of excessive lipstick that can stain your teeth, just put your index finger in your mouth and pull it out. All the excess lipstick will be on your finger. If you don’t want to spoil your finger, hold a tissue paper between your lips and voila you will be ready to pucker up.
