How to make lips appear fuller?
Use a pencil or lip liner to define the outermost part of your lip line.
Apply your lipstick with a professional lip brush, blending the lip liner,
and add a slightly lighter color in the center to create contour.
Avoid dark-colored lipsticks.
Next, apply a bit of lip balm, then, using a basic nude-colored lip
sketch along the Cupid's bow of your upper lip making sure not
to go over
your natural lip line.... then draw along your bottom lip,
starting in the center
and following the line one third of the way
toward the corners of your mouth.
Drawing in only one third of each lip line is crucial - go any further
and you'll make your lips smaller. Use a cotton swab to smudge the line
slightly before applying a creamy pinkish-nude lipstick over your lips.
Finish with a dab of gloss in the center of your bottom lip to give you
full big lips, and natural sexy looking lips.
Select a light or bright pencil shade. Line lips outside the natural lip line.
Apply a light, bright, and/or frosted lipstick to make lips look more prominent.
A lip gloss will also make lips appear fuller by reflecting light.
Use lip liners to increase lips by "over-painting" the cupid's bow and
slightly beyond on the top lip, and lowering the centre of the bottom lip.
Luminescence gives added roundness and dimension to flat lips.
Try using a lipstick with built-in luminescence to reflect light even
on the smallest lips. A lip gloss will also create this effect.
Bright shades of lipstick and lip pencil draw more attention to the lips,
while dark muted shades make lips fade.
Balance lip shape by lining with a pencil outside the lower side of the lips
and inside on the higher side of the lips.
Apply lipstick, covering the pencil line,
in the shade of your choice.
Using a muted lip pencil shade, outline lips slightly
inside the natural lip line. Use a muted shade of lipstick in a matte,
long last or creme formula.
Light lipstick requires a stronger blush colour. Dark or vivid lipstick requires
softer blush colour. Lip colour should be in the same colour family as the blush.
Make sure lips are free of moisturizers and/or foundation before applying long
lasting lipsticks. Otherwise they will not adhere properly.
Let long-lasting lipsticks 'set' before applying a gloss. When using long
lasting lipstick daily, make sure to use a lip conditioner every night.
