We would be lying if we said that we wake up every morning with enough time to make it out the door perfectly polished and put together. Because, really, who does? It's just a bummer that one of our favorite looks — a classic matte red lip — always seems to take us the longest, what with having to use lipliner and stay in the lines.
Lucky for us (and you), we have friends in high places. We asked Nico Gullis, one of our favorite makeup artists, to let us in on how she always has a perfect crimson pout. Turns out, it's as easy as one majorly convenient product and 10 seconds of your time. Watch as she shows us just what to use and how to use it.
