There is something about full lips that looks so luscious and kissable. Is that why men (and women) go gaga over plump bee stung lips like that of Angelina Jolie. She seems to be the ideal for lips that everyone strives for. Well, I don’t but that’s me 🙂
Still, here’s a tip to help you fake that full lipped look with makeup instead of using collagen injections which are painful and can go horribly wrong as numerous celebs have shown us.
You just need a couple of items which you will already have in your stash:-
- Lip balm
- Lip gloss
How to fake full pouty lips with makeup:-
- Apply a layer of lip balm on your bare lips.
- Apply lip gloss in the center of your lips and blend outwards
- Using a lip brush, apply lipstick only on the outer edges of your lips by the sides – the 4 outer corners of your lips and blend.
- Dot some lipgloss in the center of your lips
This was a tip shared by Joyce the senior makeup artist at Estee Lauder at the Estee Lauder Beauty Gossip event which is currently ongoing at MidValley Megamall.
Did it work? Do I look like I’m puckering up my lips? Speaking of which “pucker up your lips” always makes me think of one of my favourite Disney characters – Sebastian from The Little Mermaid.
You know the scene where he’s trying to tell Ariel how to go about kissing the Prince? “You gotta bat your lashes like this. Your gotta pucker up your lips like this!” Cracks me up every time 🙂
I think the reason why they suggest you only apply lipstick on the outer corners of your lips is to create light and dark like in art. Lighter parts (with lipgloss) look higher and thus more pouty. Darker more matte sections (with lipstick) create depth. So, put it all together and you should get lips that look lush and pouty and puckered up “like this” *makes pouty face* Did it? 🙂
Incidentally, this little tip for lush full lips that I just showed you is not part of the tips you’ll learn. I’ll call it a bonus tip for you 😉 There are 12 other tips you can learn though and I’ll share some of my favourites in upcoming posts because well… its good to share isn’t it? 😀
