Do you want fuller lips that look natural? Here's what you should know.
Although there’s no issue with getting lip filler, there are many people that won’t do it. There is a solution for them. Here are 4 tips of the makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes for fuller lips, but without the injections!
1- Buffing the outline
To create the perfect canvas for lipstick application, start by buffing the outline of your lips with concealer. "Because I'm going to ignore that lip line today. I'm just dulling the perimeter down, I wouldn't do this with a full, opaque concealer. I'm just doing it on the perimeter of the lip so I can really create my own new shape,” explains Hughes.
2- Adding color
"I'm actually going to apply it with the bullet backward, with that bullet angled up toward my lip, that gives me this amazing amount of visibility on where I'm placing the tip of the lipstick. It's totally okay to overdraw with the tip of the lipstick," Hughes says.
3-Time to line
Contrary to every YouTube tutorial you may see online, Hughes suggests starting with the color and afterward line the lips. So starting with your bottom lip, use your lip pencil of choice to "contour and shade the lips to have a fuller kind of look," says Hughes.
4-Blend it out
Using a small, fluffy brush, blend out the contour lines created in step three to create a more natural effect. Hughes uses a patting motion along the line where the liner and lipstick meet to buff it out a bit, going back in with her lip liner if she over-blends.
