HOW TO: Big Lips

Create the illusion of bigger lips with these 6 simple steps. Psst – anyone can do it, guaranteed!:

Products I Used:
Concealer – Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer No.04 Medium
Lip Liner – Make Up For Ever Aqua Lipliner #1C
Beige Lipstick – MAC High Def
Sparkle Gloss – NARS Lip Gloss Luminous Glow in Albatross
Shimmer Highlighter – Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polished

Step 1 – With a sponge, dab concealer on lips and mouth area until fully blended (this will act as a primer and fill in cracks and fine lines around the mouth area).

Step 2 – Line lips with a nude lip pencil, starting from the middle of your lip drawing out.

Step 3 – Fill in lips with the lip pencil, starting from the corners of mouth to just before the middle.

Step 4 – With a lip brush, fill in lips with a beige lip color. Make sure to keep the color lighter in the middle.

Step 5 – Apply clear gloss to the lips. Gloss with sparkle is a bonus.

Step 6 – Dab a shimmering highlighter cream on the cupid’s bow (the V above your top lip), and in the center of your bottom lip. This will focus light to the center of lips giving them the illusion of appearing bigger.
