Moisturize Your Lips.

Use Concealer On The Edges Of Your lips.
Use a brush to blend out your lighter shade of concealer evenly on the edges of your lips. This creates attention to the lips and creates a contrast between the skin and the red lip color. Don’t forget to blend the concealer out to achieve a natural look.
Shape Your Lips With A Lip Liner or Pencil.
Lining your lips gives you a particular working space for you to apply the lipstick and where not to apply. Start with the lip outlines and eventually fill in the lips entirely with liner. You can use a red or nude lip liner.
Apply the lipstick.
Now you can apply the lipstick, either with a brush or directly from the tube. Make sure you get a total coverage of your lips. If you want more dramatic lips, you can add gloss but if you just want a matte look no need to apply gloss.
