Buff your lips with an old toothbrush or flannel so your lips are flake free.
Maybe use the tiniest smudge of chap stick to work as a base.
If you want to, draw a faint line in lip liner on the natural line of your lip.
Try to get the lip stick and liner very similar shades.
Apply one coat and blot lightly with tissue.
Some people prefer to use a lip brush as opposed to putting the lipstick straight onto the lips.
This means you get a gradual and even build up of colour.
Keep on applying and blotting until you get the shade you're looking for.
Use a product such as Lipcote [which I highly reccomend] to make sure the colour stays.
