- Starting in the centre, apply a lighter shade of lipstick that has a soft shine or gloss directly on top. This will blend the deeper shade and create a beautiful contour. Bio Lipstick Artemis Nude is pictured here.
- Finish by applying a lip gloss to the centre of the lip for a high shine that is the perfect finishing touch for creating fuller-looking lips.
