No need for lip injections! Here is how to create the fullest lip for you!
Sometimes we don’t make the most of our own assets! When it comes to the lips, it is an easy fix.
The older we get, the more the color of our lip shrinks away from the shape, but because the color has slipped away, the actual edge of the lip is harder to see. To remedy this, put a little foundation or concealer over your lip. Look for the bump of your lip. Use a medium to dark nude lip liner (depending on your coloring), and fill in the entire lip with it. If you are unsure of the shape, just go slightly above the natural lip color. Now apply your lipstick…a shade lighter than the liner. Final step is your gloss…again, lighter than your lip color to really plump them up, and only in the center. Gloss on the edges of the lips causes the color to bleed, and looks a bit messy.
If you want to save some time, and have your lipstick stay on all day, see my previous post on long wearing lip colors. You can see that article here:
I usually use them as my base color and then a regular lighter lip color in the center.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
