The perfect base for a heavy lip shade? A flawless complexion of course! Start by prepping your skin with an illuminating primer and wait for it to absorb properly into your skin. Then apply your liquid matte foundation with a brush, moving the brush in circles out towards the hairline to get a streak-free finish.

2 Colour Riche Le Brow Delicate Deep Brown

Team your bold lip shade with a bold brow for a high-impact look that's still natural. Fill in the brow with short strokes of the pencil, making sure to match the pencil shade with your own hair color. Then blend and define the brow with the brush attachment.

Next step: the lips. Define the lips lightly with a lip liner that matches your chosen shade before applying a lip stain rather than a lipstick. This will give a berry-like color and a real long-lasting effect without the constant transfer and re-application issues of regular lipstick.
