How to Apply: Prep your lips with a lip balm. To begin applying your liquid lipstick, take the wand out of the barrel and apply it first to the outer corners of your lower lip. Then, line your lower lip and fill in with a few swipes. Take a dip in the barrel and using the tip of the wand, start applying on your upper lip from your cupid’s bow. Line the upper lip and similarly fill it in gently with swipes. Dab excess with the brush of the wand. Viola!
