If you were born with perfect lips…no need to read further. For the other 99%, here are some ways to enhance what nature has given you and look beautiful.
Uneven Lips: Cover the lips with a base. Recommended: FACES Smoothing Lip Primer which is flesh tone in color and will smooth creases and fine lines for a perfect pout every time. Next, with a slightly darker liner, balance any uneven parts by outlining the desired shape. Now fill in the area between the pencil line and the natural lip line with a dark lipstick in the same range as the slightly darker liner. Powder and then apply a lighter lipstick over the entire lip area which will include the area with the drawn line.
Thin Lips: Apply a lip base over the lips. Outline the shape you want just above your natural lip line. Choose a lip pencil a shade darker than the lipstick you will wear. Now, use a lip brush to apply a shade of lipstick in the same family as the pencil used in the area between the pencil line and natural lip line. Powder and apply your color of choice over the entire area including the original darker pencil line you created.
Thick Lips: Apply lip base to cover natural lip area. Use a pencil liner half a shade darker than the lipstick you will be wearing. Now draw your desired lip shape just inside the natural lip line. Powder to soften the line and fill in the lip shape you have created with lipstick.
Flat Lips: Shine, shine, shine! Fill in with color, except at the center. Use a lighter, more iridescent shade at the center and add gloss here too. Do NOT powder as this will take down the shine and it is the shine that adds body to these lips.
Puckered Lips: Stretch your lips between your second and third fingers. This will smooth out the tiny vertical lines. Outline lips with a “dry” pencil to decrease bleeding into these tiny lines. Powder over the pencil and fill in with lipstick but, just to the rim of the pencil line.
