Who doesn’t want picture perfect lips ladies? Here are three simple steps to get the perfect pout.
- Draw the line.
Define the shape of your mouth using a lip liner. If your lips are naturally full, there really is no need to line outside the natural edge of your lip. Choose a shade that complements your favorite lipstick. Now color in your lips with the liner to get color that really clings. For my ladies with two-tone lips, feel free to go lighter with the liner application on the darker lip or skip it all together.
- Choose the right color and formula.
Matte lipsticks give off intense color, but can be drying. Crème lipsticks deliver great color and keep lips moisturized. Whatever formula you choose, make sure to evenly apply the color, covering the liner and blotting any excess. We’ve found paper towels work well here as opposed to facial tissue which, depending on the brand can leave lint.
- Set the look.Finish off with a little dusting of translucent powder and a second coat of lipstick or a coat of lip gloss. Or start off by using a transfer-resistant lipstick to help color stay put and perfect for hours.
Now if you’re looking for the picture perfect full pout watch the video below. There are a couple of extra steps but it’s still really simple and easy to do. The hardest part might be picking out a shade. Check back each week for a new beauty tip.
Another drawing from aspiring artist ASP. This is a cat inspired by a kitten she saw approximately three years ago and another Sonic character named Blaze.
A little information about the artist: ASP is 11 years-old and has been drawing since the age of 4. She has yet to have any formal art training although options are being explored since her departure from ballet classes.

July 20, 2020 UPDATE
ASP has taken to referring to herself as Ash and created her own website for her art.
I’m posting artwork by a young aspiring artist called ASP. She is a huge fan of the trademarked Sega character from the 1990s Sonic the Hedgehog.
All of the drawings that we’ll post in the future are her original renderings of various characters from the Sonic universe. The first is a picture of the hedgehog that started the franchise…
Absolutely loving the blog post Losing Wait from Mary Kay’s CMO Sheryl Adkins-Green! Obviously she’s not talking about the weight that most people resolve to lose every new year, but the “wait” she mentions is just as if not more important.
