Isn’t true that a creative person is not confined within the normal patterns and limitations of stylistic rules and regulations? In the name of creativity, can’t you have free reign to doodle and construct as you see fit?
Meaning: you don’t have to stay in the lines while coloring—in the name of creativity that is. . .
I feel I have been cursed to this humble state of creative genius regarding all beauty and craft endeavors.
Meaning: I can’t stay in the lines to put on lipstick, nor can I cut a straight line while crafting.
So what’s a product junkie to do given this handicap? I could either resolve to only wear nude lipstick and clear gloss all my life, or I could fight this ailment. I chose fight.
Don’t get me wrong, “my lipgloss is poppin;’ my lipgloss is cool.” But there’s something magical about a perfectly applied lip—without the distraction of luscious gloss.

Hint: you don’t have to spend big bucks to get the perfect color. I’ve done the searching and found awesome shades in high and low price points. Often, I prefer drugstore over designer. Check it out!
2. Tip two: brush concealer or foundation over and slightly around the outside of your lips. This helps set the lipstick, and also makes it easy to wipe off if (or when, in my case) you get “outside the lines.”
3. Tip three: apply lip liner –—This part my sound a bit strange, but if I don’t have a lip liner to match (which I rarely do) I use my eye brow pencil to line for a darker shade and a pinky-nude (close to my natural lip color) for a lighter shade
4. Tip four: put on lipstick (use a small lip brush for the edges)
5. Tip five: place a Kleenex over your lips and lightly brush on loose powder. This helps set the lipstick and gives it a matte look.
6. Tip six: add a bit more lipstick
