By following these simple steps, you can apply lip stick with confidence, no matter your level of vision.
Let’s start with lip liner. Keep the tip sharpened and hold the liner tube close to the tip as you apply.
Place the index finger of your other hand in the middle of your upper lip, right where you feel the dip. This is where you’ll begin to apply your liner, just below your finger.
With your lips parted slightly, lightly trace the lip liner along the edge of your upper lip. Use small strokes as you go and press lighter as you reach the corner.
Move back to the center of your upper lip and repeat these steps on the other side.
If you need help keeping your hand steady, try holding your elbow close to your body. You could also try resting your elbow on a flat surface.
Now, gently rub your finger along the edge of your upper lip to remove any stray lines.
