Getting the perfect look-at-me pout can be done in a few easy steps. You don’t even have to buy the most expensive lipstick in the store to be sure it will last all day. To get the perfect look, follow these simple steps: When putting on lisptick, it is better to start at the center of your mouth and work your way outwards, stopping just before hitting the corners. Keep your hands steady by resting your elbow on a flat surface, like a table or a countertop. To ensure that the color stays put, blot the first application with a tissue, dust with translucent powder and layer on a second coat.
