Step 1: To prepare lips for a perfect lip color application, exfoliate by using a lip scrub , removing any dead skin. Try VS Makeup PRO Smooth FX Lip Scrub & Balm.
Step 2: Apply lip balm. "This is an important step when using red or dark lip colors as they will grab any dead skin and make your lips look blotchy and dry," says Runne.
Step 3: After your lips have marinated in the balm, apply VS Makeup Perfect Lipstick in Showstopper. "Use a lip brush when applying the lip color as it allows for precision and clean lines along the outer lip area," says Runne.
