Fuller lips are undeniably the sexiest part of any face but sadly, not everyone’s got ‘em. There are beauty products like lip plumpers that give you temporary fullness but might cause irritation or reaction in people with sensitive skin. If you’ve been dying to get the JLo lips or the Bebo pout, good news for you, it’s super easy and achievable with the art of lip contouring. Just follow these steps to contour like a pro for a plumper pout.
Wash your lips using a lip scrub to exfoliate. This will remove dead skin and increase blood circulation, leaving them soft and plump. Rinse and apply lip balm on the lips, especially if you’re working with matte lipstick.
Grab a lip liner and mark an X on your Cupid’s bow, the centre of your upper lip. A sharp Cupid’s bow adds dimension to the lips. Outline the lips with the same lip liner. You can overline a little outside the natural shape but be sure to keep it natural and even.
Take a lipstick matching the shade of liner and fill the lips starting from the sides blending in to the centre.
Take a lip shade lighter than your lipstick and dab onto the centre to highlight the untouched areas. This will create an illusion of light and make your lips look accentuated and luscious.
Take bronzer and apply just below your lower lip to give the shadow effect. Apply liquid or shimmery highlighter on the Cupid’s bow to give your lips extra glam.
Lastly, finish the look by using concealer to define the lines and cover any out-of- line blunders.
And there you are! Full, kiss worthy lips you can flaunt!
