Exfoliate your lips in case your lips are dry. Apply a soothing conditioning balm to moisten the lips so that you can get a smooth surface to apply the lipstick evenly. Dot concealer over the outer edges and then blend it across the lips with a brush. Always choose a liquid concealer, as it is easy to cover the cracks and lines on your lips. Once you apply an even layer of concealer around the edges, apply a bright red or pink lip color on the inside of your lips and finish it with a lip gloss.
Blush will augment your natural beauty by giving a youthful glow to your cheeks. You can choose liquid, powder or cream based product depending on your skin type. Powder works well for those with combination or oily skin while cream is best for dry skin. Dot a bright pop of shade onto your cheeks and then tap the cheeks to even them out for a pretty blushing effect.
