How to use a lip brush

When liquid lipstick hit the market, it was an instant success. For starters, the pigmentation is usually better than a traditional lipstick, plus it lasts a lot longer. Sadly, one of its biggest shortcomings is its difficulty level. Liquid lipstick applicators are highly saturated, and if you don't have a very steady hand, you're likely to apply too much product in some places and not enough in others (such as inner corners).
Despite this downside, mastering the art of applying liquid lipstick comes with the added benefit of knowing the color will likely last all day long. So, finding a way to apply it accurately is important. If you've never used a lip brush before, you'll be amazed at how much better it applies color. After watching the quick tutorial, you'll be sporting a beautiful lip in no time.

Materials
- Liquid lipstick in your favorite color
- Small lip brush
- Liquid brush cleaner (optional)
Instructions
1. Remove the applicator wand from the liquid lipstick. Gently run the lip brush over it to pick up the color.
2. Start at the center of your lower lip and apply the color from the middle to the corner. By working in sections, you'll be less likely to "color" outside your lip line.
3. Reload the lip brush if necessary and repeat on the other side and the upper lip. Take your time. Liquid lipstick can be difficult to remove, so you don't want to make a mistake.
4. Fill in any sparse spots until you achieve the desired effect.
5. Spray the lip brush with liquid brush cleaner and wipe it gently onto a clean, lint-free towel. This last step is optional but highly recommended. It will keep the lip brush in tip top condition (and avoid potentially combining different colors down the road).
