Michaela Howie Makeup Tutorial – Red Lip from Alexis McKeown on Vimeo.

Step1: Exfoliate, you can make your own lip exfoliant by mixing half olive oil and brown sugar. Wipe off the dead skin with a tissue
Step2: Moisturize your lips to create a smooth base
Step3: Line your lips with a cherry coloured pencil starting from the cupids bow and working your way outward
Step4: Brush the colour of the lipstick of your choice onto your lips, starting in the center and working your way outward. This gives you the most control.
Step5: Blot your lipstick and repeat step 4.
Step6: Clean around the edges with a cue tip & conceal the edges with a small brush, powder over the top of that.
Step7: Use a coral brush to add colour to the cheeks and make sure the eyebrows are filled in so that the face is framed.
