I like to start by drawing an X at my cupids bow with lip liner, which helps create even peaks to the top lip. The height of the peak will contribute to how overdrawn your lips will be.

Next, start working the line from the peak in a rounded motion toward the inner corner of your lips. Never bring the lip liner outside each corner.

Filling your lips in completely with liner creates a base for your lipstick to last longer. Layer your lip color of choice on top, either the same color or slightly lighter than your liner.

My favorite trick: Use translucent powder on a small brush and pat at the borders of your lips to conceal your natural lip line under the lipstick, making the overdrawn effect look more natural.
