Create a nude base for the lip color. To make vibrant lip colors pop, prime your lips first with the same foundation you normally use on your face.

3. Lip Liner

Line your mouth. Outline your pout with a bright, colored lip crayon that has long-lasting wear. Continue to fill in your lips, fading out the color toward the center of your lips.

4. The Effect

Create an ombrรจ effect. Place the tip of a long-wearing lip crayon inside the center of your lips and fade it into the other shade, creating a slight gradating effect.

5. Finishing Touch

Finish with a glossy stain. Give your lips that patent leather sheen by applying a dab of a glossy lip stain over the center of your lips. The shine in the middle of your mouth also gives the illusion of a fuller pout.
