This helps ensure that your lip color will look exactly how it does in the packaging on 3your lips; otherwise, the pink or red tones will alter how the color appears when you apply it.

Repeat on the other side of the upper lip (the uneven side) line just outside the natural lip line where it’s uneven and try to make this side as even possible as the other side. When you finish with the upper lip, start at the left corner of the bottom lip, just inside the natural lip line, and move outward to the middle of the lip and do the same for the right side. If the unevenness is too obvious, use two different tones of lipstick: use a lighter tone on the thinner side to pop it up and a darker one on the other. Don't forget to blend!
