During Oprah's makeup lesson with Reggie, she learned that "you can't have an amazing lip with just one lipcolor." Reggie says it takes at least three shades to attain amazing lips.
First, Reggie says to take the darkest lipstick and trace the line of your lips. Then, use the next darkest color to shade more of the lip—but don't go all the way in! Leave a little lip bare for the lightest color. Apply it through the middle of your lip, and then crown the lightest shade to the top part of the lip, as well.
