I've had so many girls compliment me about my lipstick and it always ends with "I wish I could pull it off." I say the same response to every one which is: "YOU CAN!" All it takes is a little confidence and a smile. Oh, and a lip brush and steady hand don't hurt, either. Most girls slap it on their lips, giving them that "just made out" look or sometimes what I like to call the "Kool-aid mustache" which is so not sexy. I use a lip brush, this one to be exact. It was only $1 and works fantastic. I use it to perfect the edges, make straight lines and to be sure that the color doesn't bleed. If necessary, practice the application so you can perfect it when you're ready to rock it.
