There's something inherently sexy about a girl in a vampy lip (especially when the rest of her look is subdued or casual). Since I like bubble gum pop music, am drawn to the color pink, and have blond hair, I'm not exactly an obvious fit for such a moody vibe. But it's all about finding the right shade, keeping the rest of your make-up simple, and having the confidence to give it a try. Here are some of my application tips for a dramatic lip that stays put and doesn't smudge.

Step 1: Exfoliate lips.

Step 2: Line lips with a pencil and then fill the inside as well (this ensures the color will stay put for hours).

Step 3: Apply lipstick with a lip brush, as it offers the most control.

Step 4: Place your finger in your mouth, close your lips around it and then pull it back out to ensure any extra lipstick ends up on your finger and not smeared across your teeth.

Step 5: Touch up any mistakes by using concealer.

Lastly, make sure to throw the lip pencil, lipstick and concealer in your purse for touch-ups on the go.Products used: lip scrub, lip pencil (in Currant), lipstick (in Mercer).
