Here's all you need to know about getting irresistible lips in 4 simple steps

1. Moisturise your lips, ideally with a colourless, vitamin E-infused lip balm or chapstick. For the Indian climate, it helps if the balm has SPF as well and is not water-based.

Line your lips

2. Lining your lips is not always necessary, but if you have small lips and would like them to be bigger and poutier, you will need to line them.

Draw the outline a little outside your natural lip line carefully. Either use a liner that matches the colour of your lips or that blends with the colour of your lipstick.

Colouring your lips

3. Now apply lipstick. Your lipstick should complement your complexion.

Medium to dark skin tones are perfect for nude shades with a peach undertone.

Lighter skins can pull of a range of pinks.

Dark lipsticks like red and orange are loud and are best left for late night parties.

Gloss it up

4. If you have chosen to keep your lips thin, finish off with a light layer of lip gloss on the centre of your bottom lip and the cupid's bow on the upper lip to add a polished and pouty touch to your look.

Pucker up!
