But there's no need to stress because we're sharing with you the only tips and tricks you need to know for a perfect lipstick application to create the perfect pout.

Always start with a clean slate. To guarantee a flawless lippie application, make sure that your lips are soft and moisturized. You can exfoliate your pucker with a lip exfoliator or apply a balm first. Don't forget to blot your lips with tissue afterwards.

Know what lip formula works well on your lips. There are a lot of different types of lippies. From matte to creamy, and even stains. Matte lippies are all the rage these days, but if your lips are sensitive it can dry out your lips faster. Experiment with different bullets so you will know which formula works better for you.

Boost your lip color with a lip liner. If your eye makeup has an eye primer to make sure that the color stays longer, lipsticks have lip liners to do that. Plus, it boosts that colors of your lippies by neutralizing your natural lip color, too.

Blot, blot, blot. Blot your lips with tissue after every swipe to make the color last longer. Don't put the tissue in between your lips because this will cause your lip color to fade unevenly. Pat a tissue over your lips gently instead.

No to lipstick on your teeth. You've probably heard your mom say this once or twice already, but it's worth repeating once more. To avoid lipstick stains on your teeth, put your index finger in your mouth and gently pull it out to remove excess color.

Highlight it. Further define your lips by highlighting your Cupid's bow. You can use a handy highlighter or a trusty light concealer can do the trick, too.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
