Prime the lips - for a smooth and long last application you need to make sure your lip and free from any flakey skin. Use a sugar scrub or even a tooth brush to exfoliate and then apply a lip balm to nourish and sooth.
Define your lips - using a red lip liner define the lips by tracing around them, being carful not to over draw.
Add the colour - Apply lipstick in the centre, layer to get the coverage and intensity you want.
Blot with tissue to help remove excess pigment.
Powder over the top with a translucent powder and a small fluffy brush - this will help lock it in so that your lipstick doesn’t budge.
And there you have the perfect, long lasting red lip!
