How to Get the Perfect Lip Look: Sure-Fire Tips to Apply Lipstick to Thin Lips
Most girls with skinny or thin lips dream of having fuller lips. And this year they are in luck! You can take two approaches to get the perfect lip look.
First, contour them with a liquid lip liner right outside of your lip line. Just, don’t go overboard! Blend it towards the lips to avoid any harsh lines. Then apply the color lipstick of your choice, preferably with a brush.
Now apply a dab of a lighter lipstick to the center of the lower lip. And finally, give them an illusion of roundness by applying a pearly color, glitter or gloss on the center of the lower lip.
For the second approach, draw your outer lip line with nude liquid lip liner, apply rose-gold or nude liquid lipstick. Now grab some glitter or shine and add a highlight right above your cupid’s bow and in the center of your bottom lip to really plump it up!
Tip: If you have thin lips, avoid matte lipstick because it will make your lips look even thinner. Pick a glossy lipstick instead.
Makeup Tricks for Full Lips or Wide Mouths
The trick to disguise a wide mouth or full lips is basically the same. Apply a makeup base on the lips and then outline them with a color as similar to your skin as possible following the outline inside them. You can use any lipstick kind, but ideally go for more matte and non-glossy lipsticks. Gloss will make your lips look bigger.
How to Get the Perfect Lip Look for Irregular Lips
Irregular or asymmetric lips can happen when one of the lips looks much bigger than the other. To make them look the same size, delineate the outline of the smallest lip outward or the larger one inwards to make them look even. If the lip corners are dropped, the makeup trick is to draw the outline a bit upwards to give them the opposite look.
Apply glitter to your Cupid’s bow for a plumpier, glossier lip. Remove the extra glitter with some scotch tape. If it’s already pronounced, skip this step and add some shine to your lower lip!
Lipstick & Bold Makeup Trends for 2018 you can Pull Off
This year lips shine and the trend is towards frosted or glittery lipstick – it’s all about romantic sparkle and metallics – in your fav shade.
Gloss, gloss and more gloss (a la Rihanna!) in gold, nude, silver, peach, rosy or moody tones like burgundy and copper. Dare to mix deep reds with orange glitter. Keep scotch tape handy to remove the glitter that falls onto your skin.
Ditch brightly colored lipstick in favor of colors that closely match your lips. Avoid the perfectly lined lip look and go for liquid lip liner, hydrating lip tints, balmy lipsticks, and fuller, juicier lips.
If you love bold red lips, the only way to do it in 2018, is to have a very barely-there rest of the look makeup. Let your lips tell the story and be the center of attention.
You can also go for a cherrybomb lip look where the majority of color is concentrated on the lower lip, whilst the upper is given just a subtle stain and finish with lipgloss (obvs). There’s a lot of fun to be had on lips this year!
