The M·A·C Icon

A Bold Lip

Step 1:

Apply primer first to condition the lips, whilst creating a matte base for the lipstick to stick to.

M·A·C Pro Tip: Apply the primer all over the lip, and over the lip edge to prevent bleeding. Allow the product to go tacky before you apply your other lip products.

Step 2:

Line your lips in your desired shape. It will glide perfectly over M·A·C Prep + Prime Lip.

M·A·C Pro Tip: Focus on lifting the outer corners of your lip for a fuller appearance.

Step 3:

Create the perfect bundle by matching your lip pencil to your Matte Lipstick. Swipe lipstick onto lips directly form the bullet for a high-impact pout.

Step 4:

Layer with Clear Lipglass for a luxurious, lacquered finish.
