Lipstick Tip, Make It Stay ALL Day by Giovanna

Begin by prepping your lips with concealer to create a base and to cancel some of your skins natural pigmentation, then set with a light dusting of translucent powder. I prefer Aveda's Inner Light Concealer, and Aveda Inner Light Loose Powder as a combination.

Line and lightly fill in lips with liner using Aveda's Nourish-Mint Liner.

Apply a cream lip color out of the tube or use a lip brush for a more precise application. A great combination... Aveda Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Color or Sheer Mineral Lip Color, Aveda Flax Stick #11 Lip Brush or Retractable Lip Brush if your "on the go".

Using your finger, tap a lighter colored frosted powder (eye shadow works great!!!) onto the center of your lips to create a full pouty, matte, shimmery look. Aveda Petal Essence Single Eye Color is my shadow of choice.

This technique will lock in your lip color for a look that will last all day! Did someone say "Wedding" ???
