    Prep the Lips

    Before doing anything, soften and nourish your lips with a great lip balm.

    For a balm that has multiple benefits, try the Shiseido Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment. It contains powerful anti-ageing ingredients as well as being incredibly hydrating, giving you plumper, more defined lips.

    Liner First

    For a flawless pout, always use a liner first. It helps to give lipstick a base, stops any bleeding or feathering and defines your lip shape.

    Start from the outer corners in small strokes before filling in the whole lip.

    For a bright red, try the Shiseido Smoothing Lip Pencil in ‘Siren’. It even has a lip brush on the other end for perfect lipstick application.

    Finally you can apply your lipstick all over the liner base.

    For added impact, apply two layers. It will ensure incredible pigmentation and help make the lip colour last longer.

    For a rich glossy red lip, try the Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in ‘Sanguine’. It is the perfect rich, feminine red that is just ideal for date night!
