Don’t we just love how celebrities seem to get all things right, perfect outfit, perfect up do, perfect make up especially the lips, their lipsticks always seem to be a natural part of them. They have they perfect pout we all love (to have).

Here are tips from Hollywood’s makeup artist Robin Fredriksz, who has used the techniques on celebrities.

Make Lipstick Last

To keep your color in place, fill the entire lip with neutral pencil before applying lipstick. If necessary, roll the tip in the palm of your hand to warm it up and prevent hard lines.

Create a Custom Shade

Turn any lip color into a shimmery new shade: Swipe sheer golden gloss over lipstick, it instantly warms up every color

Use Powder for the Perfect Nude Lip

Start with a pale pink shade, then dust translucent powder on top for a matte effect.

Shape Lips Without Liner

Give the illusion of two perfect peaks without lining lips: Just dab concealer in the groove at the center of your upper lip and blend well.

Make Your Own Stain

Turn any lipstick into a durable stain by blotting, reapplying, then blotting again to remove excess oils. Blot with lint-free blotting paper rather than tissue for a more natural, long-lasting look.

Prime Lips for Spot-On Color

If you really like the way a lipstick color looks in the tube, prime lips with a touch of foundation before applying; that way, you start with a blank kind of foundation. The end result will be exactly what you see in the package

Find Your Perfect Pink

Love lipstick in pink and not sure of which shade is best for you? Just smile; your perfect shade is about the exact color as your gums, not a shade lighter.
