How to Do the "Perfect Lip" Technique from TikTok
Step 1: Take your go-to brow pencil and use it to line your lips. You can keep it as light, dark, blurred, or defined as you want. Quick tip: make sure to properly moisturize your lips, especially if your brow pencil is on the dry side!

Step 2: Fill in the center of your lips with the same blush you used on your cheeks. I used a light layer of Rom&nd’s See-Through Matte Tint in the shade Maple Red for this look.

Step 3: Top it off with your favorite gloss! You can use a clear gloss to make your blush shade the star of the look, or a tinted one for an extra wash of color. I went for Issy & Co.'s Hydragloss in 911 for bit of a peachy shine.
