Makeup For Video Interviews 🖥✨#CheriePartner
As a May 2020 graduate, I’ve been doing a lot of interviews and phone calls over the quarantine period for jobs and internships. Along the way I picked a few key tips for achieving a flawless, professional makeup look perfect for video calls. All I want is to make the impression that I’m put together and perfect for the role! Of course, everyone has different kinds of makeup looks, and specific parts of makeup that make it “signature” to them (like a strong winged liner, or bold lip, or even a super bare natural face!). But for me, my “signature” looks is something quite fresh-faced, glowy skin, defined eyes and a tinted lip! Tips: 1) Stay true to yourself! If you never wear a red lip, don’t wear a red lip to the interview. If you always have a beautiful eyeshadow look on, definitely put some eyeshadow on! The truth is, when you feel most like yourself, the more confident you will appear to others. 2) Video calls tend to wash you out, so if you’re applying a color product maybe add a little more than usual! Here is what I used:

“No Makeup” Look for Video Calls✨ #CheriePartner
Looking like I’ve put in effort before a video call is good, but sometimes I just want to look a little more “effortless” for my more casual calls. This is my go-to “no-makeup” makeup look for video calls when I want to look put together but not overdone! ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer I always always use a bit of concealer for my undereyes as they’re super dark (thanks mom!). This creamy concealer gives plenty of coverage and leaves a radiant skin-like finish. I apply a dot under each of my eyes and on any discoloration or acne scars on my face, and then blend it in either with my fingers or a fluffy brush. COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Pencil COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Gel Defining the brows helps to frame the face! I love these Brow Boss products from Colourpop because they’re inexpensive but perform just as well as any high-end brow products! The pencil is waxy but still creamy enough to show up in the brows. The gel is more of a whipped pomade texture and helps to lift and hold up the brows for a fluffy look! COLOURPOP - Super Shock Blush Adding a little bit of a blush to the cheeks AND to the outer crease of the eyelids will create a youthful look. I love this blush from Colourpop! It adds a natural radiance and color to the cheeks. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Lip Pop A glossy, tinted lip balm can also help to make you look more youthful and awake! This lip balm from Glow Recipe has AHA ingredients to exfoliate the lips and keep them soft. I also love the soft pink color that this gives the lips! What is your go-to look for video calls?

My Natural, Cream Highlight & Contour Routine💖✨
We’ve all seen the super high contrast liquid highlight and contour routines on the internet and although they look amazing in photos and video, they don’t look the most natural in person. I love a good contoured and highlighted look, but I think keeping it natural is most important to me. Here’s how I cream highlight & contour for a naturally sculpted look: 1) Apply your cream contour product to areas of your face where you’d naturally have a shadow ￼￼I like it under my cheekbones, along the forehead, under the jawbone, and along the sides of my nose 2) Apply your cream highlight product to areas of your face you’d like to highlight ￼￼I like it under my eyes to brighten and conceal darkness, and also along the bridge of my nose to brighten 3) Blend your cream contour first and then blend your highlight *I actually don’t find I need to apply any foundation or base product before this. Instead, I just use a concealer to do any pin-point concealing on spots I want to cover! One of my favorite contour creams: NUDESTIX - Nudies All Over Face Color Bronze + Glow in Terracotta Tan I wouldn’t recommend using a shade that’s super cool-toned (as most brands contour shades market it like). I find that a neutral tone looks the most natural and skin-like (something not too cool or too warm). This formula by Nudestix is so creamy on the skin but blendable and sets down. It’s super long lasting but is still undetectable and seamless looking on the skin. One of my favorite cream highlights: ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer in 2W I know this is just a concealer but why not “kill two birds with one stone” (that’s a horrible saying but idk how else to describe it!). When I highlight my face, I might as well also use a product that will add coverage and improve my complexion too? This creamy, medium-coverage concealer is beautiful on the skin and never looks dry or cakey. I use it almost everyday and it never fails me. Its very blendable and disappears into the skin while perfecting it.
Declutter With Me! CONCEALERS 💖✨ (Pros & Cons)
What I’m Keeping: MAKE UP FOR EVER - Full Cover Concealer in 6 This is my go-to concealer for blemishes and spots. It’s super waterproof and long-lasting so it’s perfect for keeping things covered all day! MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer in 30 A great all-rounded concealer that is buildable and natural looking while still providing great coverage! ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer in 2W This medium to full coverage concealer leaves skin looking radiant and glowy without being overly dewy. I love using this under my eyes to brighten and conceal! The finish is perfect so I tend to use this everyday. ARMANI beauty - Power Fabric Concealer 5.25 This concealer is a tad dark for under my eyes but it’s the perfect thin consistency for mixing with my other concealers (when I’m more tan). The coverage is medium but buildable and has a natural satin finish. Glossier. - Stretch Concealer in G9 My favorite concealer for when I don’t want to put a full face of makeup on, but still have some spots I want to cover. It’s super emollient and creamy so it melts into the skin providing a hint of coverage and leaving a “makeup-free” looking glow. What I’m Decluttering: FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Concealer in 170 This concealer is too drying and full coverage for my preference. I don’t even have dry skin but everytime I apply this, whether on my face or under my eyes, it dries and makes my skin look crepey! benefit - Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer in 2 This is super similar to Tarte Shape Tape and Fenty’s concealer. The formula is slightly less thick than Fenty but thicker than Tarte. I find it looking to heavy on my face as I prefer more medium coverage concealers with a dewy finish. REVLON - Photoready Candid Antioxidant Concealer in 505 The formula reminds me of a liquid version of Glossier Stretch and as I’m keeping the glossier one, I don’t feel the need to keep this as well. The only difference between the two is that the finish of this isn’t as dewy as Glossier, so if that’s what you prefer, try this! The coverage is light to medium. rms beauty - Un" Cover-Up Cream Foundation in 22 I couldn’t justify keeping two cream pot concealers and I just prefer the more emollient formula of Glossier. This is a harder formula that takes some warming up and it dries slightly more satiny on the skin. The biggest downside is that this product contains coconut oil, which sometimes breaks my face out. Coconut oil seems to work fine on my body as a body oil but on the face, it’s a little too heavy for my skin to tolerate!
EXTREME Quarantine Glow-Up✨💖💨 #CheriePartner
I’m gonna be honest- I put on makeup maaaybe 1-2 times per week to go out. Wearing a mask everyday means I focus mainly on only my eye makeup as it’s the only part of me people can see. But it’s always mood-boosting to put on some makeup, fix up my hair and walk around the house with a “full on” look! The picture on the left is me basically on most days. I have all my skincare products on, my SPF and a sheer skin tint like ILIA - Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 . It’s my favorite skin tint for most days because it’s sheer and adds a little extra SPF. My hair is also a greasy mess because it’s usually in a bun on top of my head. The picture on the right is me with my old “go-to face of makeup”, slightly waved hair and a white linen shirt. I say old “go-to” because it’s not my “normal” look for everyday anymore! I have no place to go! *sigh* This look consists of: ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer in 2W A medium coverage concealer that offers a smooth, radiant finish on the skin. HOURGLASS - Illume Sheer Color Trio A creamy, pigmented and long-wearing set of cream cheek products to bronze, blush and highlight. CHANEL - BAUME ESSENTIEL Multi-Use Glow Stick A high-shine highlight stick that has zero glitter and offers a reflective finish on the skin. COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Pencil A super skinny brow pencil with a waxy formula that can draw on hair-like strokes through the brow. COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Gel A whipped brow gel with amazing hold- and super affordable! DollyWink - DollyWink Liquid Eyeliner The best waterproof, extremely pigmented liquid eyeliner that doesn’t smudge, flake or bleed! MAYBELLINE - The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara A high-hold waterproof mascara that keeps your lashes long, volumized and curled all day. Hair: ghd - Rose Gold Platinum+ Styler Set I put a few waves in my hair by bending a section of hair backwards and forwards. This creates a super soft wave effect for naturally volumized hair. Nature Lab. - Perfect Shine Oil Mist This lightweight, shine-boosting oil is a heat-protectant and style finisher all-in one! What is your go-to routine for a “Glow Up”?
MAKEUP TIPS FOR ZOOM CALLS #quarantinemakeup
With all meetings and classes being held online on Zoom now, I have realized the essential makeup tricks to make myself look presentable and glowy on-screen! I know with social distancing no one leaves their home anymore (including me!) but a little makeup always makes me feel mentally prepared to tackle anything! 1) Conceal darkness! Webcams always accentuate the dark circles under your eyes or any dullness in the skin. So concealer is always a must! ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer in 2W This is my go-to concealer. It has medium/full coverage and a natural satin finish. It never looks cakey no matter how much I build it up and always makes my skin look smooth and flawless! 2) Define the brows! Brows frame the face. So if I want to define my face, it starts with the brows! Even if it’s just “beefing” them up with a volumizing brow gel or filling in the gaps with a skinny pencil, a little goes a long way with brows! benefit - Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer in 4 This is a great skinny brow pencil. It’s a little creamier compared to my favorites (Fenty Brow MVP & Anastasia Brow Wiz) which tend to be more waxy. Though it lasts really well and works fast! 3) Flutter those lashes! Mascara is a huge game-changer for my face. It adds depth to my eyes and definitely makes me appear more awake on video calls (I’ve tested it out!) HONEST - Extreme Length Mascara + Lash Primer This is one of my HOLY GRAIL mascaras! Surprisingly it’s not waterproof, but holds a curl very well and adds length and volume! I love that it’s a primer/mascara duo because it just allows me to really build up my lashes and fully customize my look! 4) Add a glow!✨ To me, glow means color and shine on the cheeks; a little bronzer or blush and some dewy highlight on top. HOURGLASS - Illume Sheer Color Trio My favorite cream cheek palette ever! The shades are perfection for someone with a light/medium skin tone. The formula is extremely creamy and dries down to a nice satin finish that doesn’t budge! CHANEL - BAUME ESSENTIEL Multi-Use Glow Stick in Sculpting I love the glow that I get from this highlight! It’s pure shiny, dewiness and I love the way it finishes off my cheeks and adds a literal *glow*! 5) A touch of color on the lips! My natural lips are quite light and can sometimes make me look a little unwell on camera if I don’t apply anything with color. Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick in Like This is favorite MLBB lip color! The formula is a soft-matte formula with a unique creamy texture. The result is always nothing short of a fade, blotted stain on the lips- I love it!

This product was lightweight and made my lashes look longer. It’s one of the few formulas that doesn’t irritate my lashes. I don’t even need to curl my lashes before using this. Definitely get this
Simple Look Friday
Hi Cherie! I hope you’re all having a great Friday!! my favorite look is a “natural” look. I love dewy looking skin, but I don’t like looking like I’m wearing so much makeup! My current go-to look has been quite simple! I wash my face with CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin & then I use I'm from - Rice Toner Once that fully absorbs, I’ll lightly pat The Ordinary - Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% over my skin. Finally, I’ll put ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Marine Cream all over my face & neck. I LOVE this stuff. It hydrates & moisturizes without being too much & it smells amazing!! That’s it for my face. Then I’ll move on to my eyes. I’ll put trèStiQue - Conceal, Cover & Correct Crayon & then use MAYBELLINE - Hyper Easy Waterproof Liquid Liner In Pitch Black in the top corner of my eyes, I do this to highlight the mascara I’ll be adding next. Finally, after curling & brushing out my lashes, I will put MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Mascara Full Fan Effect on my top & bottom lashes. Finally, I will use WINKY LUX - Limited Edition Flower Balm on my lips. This goes on clear but then turns this pretty bright pink color! I love it because it always keeps my lips hydrated! & that’s it! My natural makeup routine! Thanks so much for reading & I hope you guys try out my look! Talk to you soon! 💖💋
Eyeshadow Sticks - Laura Mercier and Nudestix
NUDESTIX - Magnetic Luminous Eyeshadow Shades: Smoke, Burnish, Nudity Love how easy these eyeshadow sticks apply! But be warned, they set fast so you will need to work one eye at a time, and quickly! I like burnish and nudity a lot but find myself reaching for smoke quite often as eyeliner. These are great for travel - I always throw one or all in my makeup bag. I just use my finger to smudge out for that lived in look. Usually I use these when I can’t be bothered with powdered shadows. I’ll apply one or two colors all over the lid. laura mercier - Caviar Stick Eye Shadow Shades: Intense Moonlight, Intense Cooper, Intense Rose Gold, Intense Amethyst These are very creamy and blend out quite nicely. They had quite a sparkle to they eye. I love using intense moonlight in the center of my lid, probably my favorite shade out of the bunch. It’s a pearl/champagne color and really catches the light. These are very pigmented and very smooth!The one thing I don’t like about this is that there are pretty big chunks of glitter and when it gets in my eye (in the middle of the day) it is irritating, which is why I docked off two stars as it seems to happen almost each time I wear these. I do want to try their matte formula since these are so so creamy and blend out nicely! Overall, I would repurchase new colors in the nudestix formula but would pass on these specific Laura Mercier ones.
BRAND SPOTLIGHT: NUDESTIX
Nudestix is one of my favorite makeup brands, if not my favorite. They come out with products that I feel are so wearable, easy to use and perfect for on the go! And almost every product can be used several different ways! The Hits: The Magnetic Eye Colors (Matte & Luminous) are some of my favorite cream eyeshadows for day-to-day looks. They are so creamy to apply, super pigmented and once they set, they won’t budge. I have the shades Nudity, Burnish, Smoke, Copper Foil, Rustique, Immortal, Army & Cocoa. I love the Nudies Bloom/Matte/Glow/Bronze Colors because they are also super creamy & soft to apply and blend seamlessly into the skin. They come in so many beautiful shades that work well with all skin tones. The Bloom formula leaves a subtle sheen, Matte is matte and stays on the longest, and Glow looks wet and dewy on the skin. I have the shades Poppy Girl, In The Nude, Bareback, Sunkissed, Hey, Honey, Illumi-Naughty & Bondi Bae. The Lip Glaces are some of my favorite lip glosses because of 1) the colors- I love Nude 06 (a my-lips-but-better shade) and Cherry (for a pop of juicy red) and 2) they’re moisturizing and glossy on the lips. They’re not sticky and look plumping on the lips! The new Plush Paint formula is beautiful. I have the shade St. Tropez and I can wear it on my eyes, cheeks and lips. This is the perfect shade for a multipurpose product because it looks just like a warm nude on my skin tone. It’s super lightweight and silky feeling and blends softly into the skin. Not pictured (because I forgot it was in my makeup bag when I took the photos), but I love the Magnetic Nude Glimmer in 99% Angel. It’s a super pretty non-glittery highlight that adds just the perfect amount of glow. I like it wear it on my brow bones, cheeks and cupids bow! The Misses: I had high hopes for the Nudies Tinted Blue Stick because I loved the idea of a light/medium coverage stick that’s easy to use and quick to apply for my daily makeup routine. But when I tried it out, it felt greasy on my skin but drying and mattifying at the same time. It provided almost no coverage too. It’s a great touch-up mattifying stick though, but just not good for what it’s marketed as. I have the shades 03 and 04. I’m over the dry, matte lips so the Magnetic Matte Lip Color really did not impress me. I have the shade Boho and it’s a beautiful color, only the formula is way too drying. It drags on my lips when I apply it, and really won’t budge once it has set, but it just makes my lips look like sandpaper!
BEST LIPSTICKS FOR BLOTTED LIPS
I love a soft, blurry lip look because it looks so effortless and natural, but super long-lasting and low maintenance! Here are my top choices for a blotted lip: 1) lisa eldridge - True Velvet Lipstick in Velvet Muse This velvet lip formula is super creamy and pigmented, but doesn’t cling to dry patches! I usually dot it on the lips and pat to blend! 2) Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick in Like & Cake This lipstick was formulated to give a blotted, stained effect to the lips. It’s incredibly creamy but sheer - a very unique formula compared to all my lipsticks. Just one layer of this gives a very natural stained look- a few extra swipes makes it more of a pigmented matte lip! 3) COLOURPOP - Ultra Matte Lip in Doozy This liquid lipstick is super sheer and lightweight so it gives the lips a soft wash of color without being too overpowering. I usually wear a balm underneath because it tends to be more drying than the Lisa Eldridge lipsticks and Glossier Gen G lipsticks.
TIKTOK #MAKEUPHACKS: FAKE BIGGER LIPS💋
There are SO many makeup hacks on Tiktok- and I wanted to try out a few~ The first hack I wanted to try was “faking big lips”! Step 1) Slightly over-line lips with a nude lip liner and don’t define cupids bow (just draw a straight horizontal line). KKW BEAUTY - Peach Lip Liners in Nude 1 I love this lipliner so much- it’s so creamy and easy to blend- the shade is also PERFECT for my lip color! Step 2) Fill in the rest of the lips with a lipstick. lisa eldridge - Velvet Fawn in Velvet Muse This lipstick is probably the best matte lip formula I’ve ever tried. It’s super creamy but has a soft-matte finish that can be sheered out for a stained look or piled on for more of a full-on look. Step 3) Use a brow pencil to fill in the corners of the upper lip, draw a thin line above the cupids bow and below middle of bottom lip. benefit - Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer Weirdly, this was a great contour shade for my lips! And this brow pencil blended into the lipstick easily. Step 4) Add a gloss to the cupids bow, and down the center of top & bottom lips. NUDESTIX - Magnetic Nude Glimmer Highlighter I love this gloss- it’s so shiny and adds a tint of color! There is a slight minty feeling that fades after 5 mins. Step 5) Smile! I loved this makeup hack! I’ve definitely seen similar tricks before but the eyebrow pencil was mindblowing! It’s a great shade for contouring my lips without having to buy a separate lip pencil! My lips definitely looked much bigger after trying this technique and I would probably do it again (but only for a photoshoot or for specific makeup looks- it’s not an “everyday” look for me)! Would you try this Tiktok makeup hack?
Full(ish) face of ILIA
ILIA has become one of my favorite beauty brands over the past year due to their gorgeous products, clean beauty stance, and amazing formulations. I’m wearing nearly a full face from them minus the brows (benefit gimme brow) and bronzer (milk baked, but they just came out with their own). - Super Serum Skin Tint: 8/10 This skin tint contains spf 40, niacinimide, squalane, and hyaluronic acid so its a three in one product perfect for busy mornings. I find it to be long wearing about 8 or 9 hours of wear, which is pretty high for a skin tint. This gives the skin such a glowy, hydrated look. - Color Haze Pigment in Stutter: 9/10 Used here as a blush these also look gorgeous on the lips. Stutter is my favorite of all the pigment shades, it is a deep burnt orange that is very rare to find. The pigment itself is probably the thickest cream blush I’ve ever used but that just means you need the smallest amount, a little goes a long way. - Liquid Light Serum Highlighter: 6/10 This product can be a kind of hit or miss with me, sometimes it looks so gorgeous and natural and other times it accentuates the texture of my skin so badly. My favorite ways to use this is either mixed in with a base or under the super serum skin tint. These methods of application allow the highlighter to appear more skin like and dewy. - Limitless Lash Mascara: 10/10 My favorite mascara ever! This gives amazing length, doesn’t get clumpy, adds volume, and last for hours. This is truly the best mascara I’ve tried by far.

My fav face palette, brings me the perfect look
This is my favourite full-face palette: Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette from Hourglass. I know how hourglass is famous for its highlighters but let me tell you, although this palette looks like containing three highlighters, this is not a simple highlighter! I bought this after reading tons of positive reviews online and it really doesn’t let me down. What does it have: Absolute strobe light Pure strobe light Lucent strobe light How to use them: This is not only a highlighter, as I said. And since I love the glow so much, I have explored multiple ways to corporate this palette into my makeup and this is amazing how this always looks good at almost every place on my face lol. Here’s a detailed guidance. I use the first powder as an all over powder. It can blot down shininess and never looks like you powdered your face. People always say that they can’t see the “product” on my face and I guess that’s why this palette has the name because it’s ambient! The powders are meant to give your skin a natural-glow-within type of look. I use the powder in the middle as a highlighter, especially good for the under-eye area. And since it is the most glowing one in this palette, I’ve also tried to use it as a shimmer to apply on the corner of the eye, which really compliments almost every eye look. And for the final powder, the darkest shade, I use it to accentuate my contour or bronzer. I would also use all the 3 to apply all over my face. My thoughts on this product: I know many brands have their own face palette. The reason I opted for this one is that I am so drawn into the nice subtle glow of these three powders. It’s really hard to describe: It’s not shimmery or metallic-y. I hope the pictures could let you have a sense of it. It is sold at $64 at Sephora. I know it’s little pricy and I do believe you can purchase a similar product for a lot less but, personally, it’s definitely a staple in my makeup collection and I don’t regret buying it at all!

How to Use a Red Lipstick 💄as a Concealer?
Need a color corrector to help cover your under-eyes? I have a wheatish skin tone and shadows of dark circles under my eye. Today I want to share how I use a red lipstick as under-eye bag concealer. This beauty hack is aim to ideally cover and masking signs of fatigue under eye area..I’ve seen a lot of tutorials and tried it out myself, I do found that those dark circles will be gone in no time. I read many reviews and did see a lot of complaints on this hack as a fail. However, it is the techniques that’s makes the difference on fail or holy grail. You can use red lipstick to conceal dark under eye circles. What I did is to apply a thin layer around my under eye area, Dab a little under the eye lids with my fingers. I am using a creamy semi matte lipstick from loreal. ( I just found this one that I havent been using for at least half a year)Then, I use a small makeup brush to evenly blended out and gently pat it in. After that, I would cover with my concealer! This way it covers the redish. You can also choose to blend it out together with a beauty blender. Then I just apply a thin layer of foundation and use loose powder to finish it up. This hack does a great job on covering my green eyebags than normaly concealers. However, I do found that my overall makeup has a more pinkish finish than normal. My hacks here would be #1 choose the right texture of lipstick, a creamy one would make it easier to blend out without a gooey feeling. #2 choose the right color. Orange-based concealers will counteract the blue undertone of dark circle Overall this hack does work for covering dark circles under eye, however, it is a lot of extra work that you’ll need to do. I dont know how I am gonna rate this technique. let me know what you think! L'ORÉAL - Color Riche Ultra-Matte Lipstick MAYBELLINE - Instant Anti Age Eraser Concealer

My Go-To Pallet gives you a Kim K-worthy contour
Who doesn't enjoy convenience? We're human. We love convenience in all shapes and sizes. Why do you think delivery apps are skyrocketing in popularity? While I love a good meal delivered to my front door, I can also appreciate an all-in-one makeup pallet. My Go-To All-In-One Face Pallet: The Kevyn Aucoin Art of Sculpting + Defining pallet is my #1 choice for a natural everyday pallet that gets the job done fast. I find myself reaching for this pallet when I know I don't have much time to spend on my day's makeup. The pallet retails for $59. Is It Worth It? For me, the creme de la creme of face pallets is the 'The Contour Book Volume II' by Keyin Aucoin. As a longtime fan of his Sculpting Powder, which gives you a Kim K-worthy contour, this pallet comes with my beloved chiseling power and a cream version, highlighters, and four eyeshadows. Altogether, you get a total of eight pans. Naturally, the face products are larger than the eyeshadows. I love almost everything in this pallet. I'm personally not the biggest eyeshadow person, so I use the shadows as an inner corner highlight instead! Plus, the darker eyeshadow shade can double as a brow powder for me. It comes with a huge mirror, too, making great for travel or minor touch-ups. There's also a handy guide that teaches you how to sculpt your cheekbones out and use the eyeshadows to naturally shape and define the eyes. Tip: I love layering the Candlelight Cream and Candlelight Powder. The subtle shimmer in the powder really makes the cream highlight pop. Plus, it makes it last longer! Final Thoughts: I love this pallet, and I ultimately think it's worth it. If not for anything else, I continue to buy this pallet for the Sculpting Powder alone. It's seriously THE BEST contour powder I've ever used.

How I make my 👄 look bigger
This trick to make your lips appear bigger is SO easy, and truthfully works better than I expected! 1) start with clean exfoliated lips. You don’t want flaky or crusty skin up in here 2) take your lip liner/ lip pencil *side note I use NARS - Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil they are my absolute favorite lip sticks. They are pointy like a liner but full enough to use as a lipstick. They stay on and seriously lasts for hours! Color used here is in shade “Cruella” Ok and we’re back. Take your liner and trace the outside of your lips starting at the corners and up the sides. Stay ON your lip line for these areas. Once you reach your Cupid’s now slightly over line past your natural lip. Repeat the process fir the bottom lip on the sides by staying on your lip line. Once you reach the fullest part of the bottom lip over line again here. 3) fill in your lips! 4) Viola! Beautiful full, voluptuous lips without looking fake.
