LIPS & TIPS TUTORIAL
The Trick: To make this pairing feel fresh, nails should be short and ultra glossy.
Expert Instructions: Sutter filed Ejogo’s nails into a short, square shape with rounded edges, coated them with a light base coat and then applied two coats of Tom Ford’s Nail Lacquer. Allow each application to set for two minutes before adding the next. For the highest shine, finish with YSL La Laque Nail Lacquer Base et Top Coat.
Expert Instructions: To achieve this soft matte effect, apply Hourglass’ Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipcolor in Muse with a lip brush, painting on numerous thin coats, blotting each with a tissue. (About four thin coats should do it.) Dempsey’s technique creates a stained look, but retains the natural texture of the lips. It also creates the softest version of the color. Top with a light coating of balm to ensure the lips look hydrated without a glossy sheen.
