How do I get the best application of lipstick?

 

Use a lipstick brush.

By applying lipstick directly from the tube you lose control of where you put it. You don’t get the precise coverage you get with a brush.

For best results outline your lips with a lip pencil. Then using a lipstick brush with lipstick on it,  apply it to your lips. Start at the center of your top lip and work your way out on either side. Next, do the same techniques on your bottom lip. Then blot your lips with a tissue.

Using a lipstick brush to apply your lipstick will make the lipstick last longer and look better.

My secret is the type of brushes I use. I am also a watercolor artist.

I discovered Escoda brushes from the late- Carol Ann Sherman. She was the princess of Yupo, an extraordinary watercolor artist and also a cosmetologist . One day we were girl-talking about makeup and my clientele. She had just received a shipment of Escoda brushes from Spain, generous as she was, she gave me a few brushes to try.

The first time I used them to apply makeup I was hooked! My favorite brushed are Escoda. Immediately, I began using them on my clients.  I think they do custom brushes for cosmetics.

 

This is Escoda’s catalog of the vast array of handmade brushes they design. I think they do custom brushes for cosmetics.
