We've talked lips before - luscious lips and lasting lipstick - but the same rules don't apply when it comes to sporting that loud lip. This TIP TUESDAY Bethany explains how to achieve a bold lip with a bit of a different technique - combine with the previous TIP TUESDAYS above and you're sure to have a perfect pout!

Get a hard edge for the fall with a strong lip look. To really carve it, sharpen your pencils gals! Make the most of your lip line by using the side of the pencil tip rather than the dead on point. Rest the side of the pencil in the center of one side of the lip and use a windshield wiper motion to get the tip onto the edge of the lip line. If enlarging the lip, just go to the outer lip edge for the most realistic look. Make any corrections with short sketchy strokes. 

Filling the lip in with pencil before lipstick gives extra staying power. To take that to the next level, powder the lip through a single ply of tissue before lipstick. Want the most budge proof lip, blot the lip with a powder paper folded lengthwise, powder side out, then apply lipstick.

Would you rather have a strong glossy mouth? Apply gloss directly over penciled in lips.
