As much as we covet and adore lipstick, the relationship we have with our tubes can go from devoted to dismal in a heartbeat. That color you love so much might not stay on all day, or the matte texture you searched high and low for may dry out your lips. And, for some of us, the application process is right up there with at-home manicures on the list of things we dread.
In order to make your lipstick lives a wee bit easier, we've tapped esteemed makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury to help show us how to master the perfect pout — every time. Click through to read her tips and tricks, and get ready to put your best lips forward.
Editor's Note: Refinery29 is turning 10! To celebrate our milestone birthday, we're throwing a fabulous party and calling it 29Rooms.

Beauty buffs will want to check out Charlotte Tilbury's Read My Lips, a room filled with affirming messages, tips, and hashtags glistening on infinity mirrors and written out in red lipstick. See you next month!
