Prep Your Pout
Taking the time to properly prep your lips will make a HUGE difference! Sure, it takes a few more minutes, but it is completely worth it. Here are “5 Steps to The Perfect Pout”.
There are many common lip shapes and depending on which one you have, you can follow some simple steps to make them look their best.
Use brighter, lighter colors. This will make your lips appear fuller. To increase the size of both the upper and lower lip, use a Lip Liner to outline lips with a soft curving line just outside your natural lip line. Then use a complimenting lipstick color.
Use darker, more muted colors to minimize the fullness of your lips. Use a lip liner to outline just inside your natural lip line. Then fill in with a complimentary lip stick.
To give the illusion that the lips are larger than they actually are, you will want to build up the outside edges of the upper and lower lips by lining outside your natural lip line. Then be sure to extend the corners of your mouth outward. Then use a complimentary lipstick to fill in the rest of your lips.
You will want to balance the shape of the lips. Use a lip liner and outline the upper and lower lips to build up the area that is uneven. Then fill in with a complimenting lip color.
Line the top and bottom lips at the actual lip line, lifting the line up slightly at the corners, then fill in with a lipstick that compliments the lip liner.
