2. Moisturize them lips! Don't apply your lipstick on dry lips.. Ever. I suggest you apply lip balm before you apply eye or face makeup, so you let it soak in your lips and if there is any excess lip balm after this, just wipe it off with tissue.
4. Line your lips with a lip pencil. I think this point is crucial for darker lipsticks to prevent bleeding and smudging. Fill your lips with it, too.
5. Now it's time to apply lipstick. You can use a lip brush, it can be more precise, but I don't have problems applying it directly.
6. Take a paper tissue and bite in it with your lips to get rid of any moisture. Reapply your lipstick.
It may seem a lot of steps, but trust me, they are all important to prevent any problems dark lipstick may cause you.
