What you need:
Foundation or concealer
1. Create a base for lips with a light wash of concealer or foundation.
2. Apply lipstick to the tip of a lip brush and create a clean outline using light, feathering strokes. Then load up the brush with lipstick and coat the entire lip, from the outside in, gently stretching your lips for more control.

Matte, gloss or liquid?
