Nothing impresses your friends more than a simple lip stroke, because it is the most difficult makeup application to make. Keeping your mouth closed, lightly trace the lip outline with the lip pencil to see it barely, but you can use it as a guide.
Hold the brush horizontally to draw along the line of the lips and do a little at a time, drawing back and ironing. Do not try to get all the line at one go. The best lip brush is a sand with a slightly tapered edge, not straight.
This gives more control and a cleaner line. If you're really in a hurry, apply lipstick only on the lower lip and press your lips together. Then mix the lip contour with the edge of a lip brush, not the tip, to get a precise line, or use a moist cotton swab to get a soft and natural lip line.
Once finished, instead of dabbing the lips by biting a cloth, lay the fabric on both lips while your mouth is closed. This will print your lips, including the edges of the mouth where the lipstick usually bleeds. Perfect!
