This afternoon's post is the first of a bumper sized series that we can't wait to share with you over the coming weeks. If you haven't guessed from the header of this article already then you might be a little bit pleased to know that we'll be sharing lots and lots of beauty and hair DIYs to take you through the next few months to Christmas and beyond. It's something that we've been meaning to do for a while now at RMW HQ given the popularity of our past beauty posts but we just hadn't quite gotten round to doing it. It took a ruddy long planning meeting with all members of the RMW team to get our backsides into gear and produce what you see on your screen in front of you today. And we'll let you into a secret...we're actually really proud of this beauty DIY series. It was imperative to all of us that the tutorials be super simple and easy to follow so that even the most cack-handed amongst us could pull off the looks with aplomb. Hopefully you'll agree... So let's begin. Have any of you lovelies decided on what your pout might be doing for W-day? Perhaps you're looking for a spot of beauty inspiration for when you're off out to lunch with the girls? Might we tempt you with something a little bit bright, a little bit BOLD? how-to-lips 1. Prime the lips with a lip balm of your choice using a cotton bud to gently exfoliate.

Apply your lipstick with a lip brush for an accurate and precise finish. 5. Use a concealer to tidy up any mistakes and further define the lip line 6. Blot with a blotting paper (it takes away some of the oil in the lipstick leaving just the pigment. 7. Repeat and blot again. 8.
