    Pick an ice cream stick or a small wooden spatula and dip it in the wax. Now, gently spread the melted wax on your upper lip, ensuring it doesn't get into your mouth or cheeks.

    Note: In case if the wax gets on other areas of your face then you can simply wipe it with a wet tissue or a moisturizing wipe.

    Once you apply wax to your upper lip, top it with a cloth or waxing strip before it dries out. Use your finger tips to smooth the waxing strip and press it down gently for 2 to 3 seconds.

    Note: You really have to be quick in this step as you do not have to let the wax remain on your upper lip for more than 5 seconds.
