Flip through any magazine and you’ll see models with gorgeous, plump, kissable lips. You too can get a pout worthy of the front cover. Here’s how!
Step 1: Prep your lips
Start by removing all the dead skin from the surface of your lips. How? Just use a gentle exfoliating product for the face. The results will be silky smoothness all the way!
Then, apply a thin layer of foundation. This will hide any imperfections in the contour of your mouth and even out the colour of your lips.
End with a touch of pressed powder to extend your lipstick’s staying power.
Step 2: Line your lips
Using a well-sharpened lip liner, trace the contour of your lips. Make sure the shade of your pencil is the same as the colour of your lipstick. For even easier application, choose a lip liner that matches the colour of your bare lips. Once you have lined the contour of your mouth, apply your lipstick.
Good to know!
To get a plumper pout, some women make the mistake of lining outside the natural contour of their lips. Don’t! The best way to emphasize thin lips is to select a soft shade of lipstick. Avoid purples, burgundies and magentas, since dark hues tend to make lips look smaller.
Step 3: Add shine
For a glowing smile and full lips in a flash, add a touch of sheer gloss to the centre of your lips. This will attract light in just the right places. The end result will be absolutely fabulous!
You’ve opted for a vibrant lip colour or gloss? Make sure you choose a more neutral shade for your eyes. The golden rule in make-up is that you should emphasize either your lips or your eyes, but never both!
