While scrolling through your Insta feed, have you ever stopped to look at a celebrity or model’s lips and wonder how on earth do they look so well-defined? I know I have. After observing tons of pictures, I noticed that they all had one thing in common: a perfectly defined cupid’s bow.

That’s right, ladies! Enhancing your cupid’s bow can give your lips a fuller and well-defined appearance. Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating the perfect cupid’s bow.

How to:

Step 01: Take a creamy lip liner like the Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Lip Liner - Vermillion that glides on easily. Beginning at the highest point of your natural lips, draw a straight line and extend it downwards on both sides to create an X

Step 02: Place the lip liner at the centre of your bottom lip and draw a horizontal line to define it. This will ensure your bottom lip is perfectly and evenly lined

Step 03: Open your mouth slightly to part your lips then draw two sideways V, one on each corner of your mouth. Your lipstick shouldn’t go beyond this point

Step 04: Using quick and short strokes, connect the spots you’ve marked in the first three steps. Make sure you don’t cross the areas you’ve marked, or it might end up looking unnatural.

Step 05: Fill in with a lipstick in the same shade as the lip liner to complete the look. The Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color - LC MR1 Red Coat will look stunning on you.
