I love this because I have a much smaller bottom lip. I struggle with symmetry and lipstick transfer.
She starts with buffing a moisturizer on lips with a cotton swab. Using a rolling motion, she exfoliates and she pushes the moisture in. Dry lips flake and show lines.
Using L'Oreal - Infaillible Lip Liner - Always Toasted 708, she buffs in the color using circular motions. I think that this is key because it creates a softer line. It also helps to get the color into the skin and all over the lips in thin layers. Leaving a layer of pencil helps keep the lipstick last longer.
She also creates a red lip with similar techniques. She uses a matte lipstick to prevent seeing the lines from glossy reflections. She also suggests putting a thin layer of color on first to use as a guide. And using a lighter color as a brightener in the center of the lower lip to make it look fuller, instead of a gloss.
