To create the perfect #AvedaKiss, we’ve enlisted the help of Janell Geason, Aveda Global Artistic Director for Makeup, who’s all about bold and beautiful lips to honor the season of love.
Bonus: this tutorial uses products from our new limited-edition Spring 2015 Makeup Collection, Rare Bloom, featuring gorgeous shades of pinks and orange, that practically scream spring!
Here, Janell shares how to achieve full and flirty #AvedaKiss lips:
1: Prep lips with Aveda Nourish-Mint Renewing Lip Treatment.
Pro Tip: To help prevent feathering from fine lines around mouth, apply a small amount of powder around the mouth before applying lip liner.
2: Apply lip liner by following the natural contour of lips. First begin on the inside of the outer corner of top lip, working toward the center of the lip; repeat on the other side of the mouth. Create the ‘m’ at the center of the top lip.
Begin the bottom lip at the inside of the outer corner, working toward the center of the lip; repeat on the other side of the mouth. Finish by filling in the entire mouth.
Pro Tip: Clean up edges with a pointy cotton swab or a dab of concealer on a small brush.
3: Apply lip color following the natural contour of the lips. Start in the center of the lops and blend towards the lip lines. Fill in the entire mouth.
Pro Tips: for greater control when shaping lips, use Aveda Environmental Retractable Lip Brush for applying lip color. For added longevity, blot with tissue and reapply. For added fullness, apply a dab of lip gloss in the center of the lips.
