Step 1: Prep your lips with a scrub. I love French Girl Organics Rose Lip Polish.
Step 2: Use a flattering nude to line and then fill in your whole lips. I think Glossier Cake looks amazing on everyone.
Step 3: Add a pop of color to your inner mouth. This is big in Korean beauty, and creates a pretty flushed candy-eating pout. For this look I used Zip, a cherry red.
Step 4: Apply a clear gloss to blend the color and add an appealing glossy finish. I like to use my fingers for this so I have a little more control of the blending, and so my applicator doesn't get gross.

That's it! I've been playing around with lots of color combos - a nice brown Leo with a pop of purple Jam in the center. Cake with Cherry Balm Dot Com. The possibilities are endless, and it's so fun to experiment. I came across this beautiful combo by just grabbing the first two that I could find in my makeup bag. For a matte finish, use a coat of instead of the gloss.
