How to get the perfect pout

You'll need a few different tools of the trade: a lip brush , a lip pencil, a lip gloss and a lipstick color of your choice. 

The first thing you need to do is line the lips with the lip pencil. Make sure that your pencil is freshly sharpened because this will give a better result and better shape to the lips. Draw an outline on the lips taking care to ensure you've got the perfect Cupid's bow.

It might help sometimes to stretch the skin  particularly if you are more mature  and then you can draw a much more even line.  This part does not have to be too perfect at this stage because we can always come on after we've applied the lipstick and put some more lip pencil on to even everything up.

The next thing  you need to do is load your brush with our chosen lip colour  apply the color all over the lips on top of the lip pencil that you've already applied. Remember, if you make any mistakes at this stage, you can always correct them.   Then take your  your lip pencil again and  refine the edges by drawing your Cupid's bow and the outline of the bottom of your lip

Now to get that perfect pout and really make the lips pop, apply a bit of clear gloss to the bottom lip in the center. You don't need too much on the brush for this, it will just give a  bit of shine and making the lips look plumper. This is ideal for someone that hasn't got such a full bottom lip.
