Before starting, you ensure your hands and nails are well cleaned. File your nails if necessary, so that there are no snags. By doing this you prevent damages on the face and risk of infection.

Always work using clean materials (sponges, brushes, spatulas, water bowls) and change the water regularly.

Protect your models clothing with a hairdressing cape or a towel.

There is a wide range of matt shades of Lipstick (Pure), including Base Pure - a clear lipstick that can be mixed with all other shades to make them more transparent.
Beside the matt colours there are many glossy Pearl tints.

If the lips are dry, first apply a thin layer of Grimas Lipstick Base Pure.

If you apply a basis make-up using Foundation or Crème Make-up, work it out over the lips as well.
For older skin, Camouflage Make-up is applied over the edge of the lips to prevent the lipstick leaking into the vertical cracks around the mouth.
Draw with a pencil to draw the outline of the lips. Work from the outside inwards for the upper lip, and from the inside outwards for the lower lip.
