Full, Sensual Lips: Lip Care and Contouring Tips
Posted on January 18 2016
Everyone wants full, sensual lips. However, not everyone is blessed with them. Here's where the magic of makeup comes into play. With the right lip care and makeup techniques, you can also enjoy full, plump lips.
It's All about the Lip Care: Exfoliate your lips before you apply makeup. This would do two things for you: it will remove dead skin cells and prep it for makeup application, and the exfoliating process will also stimulate blood flow to the lips, increasing its plumpness. When brushing your teeth, quickly swipe your toothbrush across your moist lips a couple of times to remove dead skin cells. It is important that you do not overdo it - you do not want to have a rash. A second way is to create a quick, but effective lip scrub. Mix a bit of honey with granulated sugar and use it to exfoliate your lips. If you have particularly sensitive lips, use less sugar. Rinse your mouth with cool water to remove any remnants.
Contouring Your Lips for a Fuller Pout
Apply lip balm onto the lips. Use a lip liner that is the same shade as your lips. Fill in your lips with the lip liner. The lip liner will act as a foundation for your lipstick, offering a lasting effect. Once you've applied the lip liner, go slightly beyond the sides of your cupid's bow to accentuate it. It's important that you do not go more than just a couple of millimeters when contouring your lips. Overdoing it will look very obvious to anyone who is standing close to you. You can also go a little bit beyond the sides of your lips to create a larger effect. Apply a little bit of a lip gloss in the center of your lips to finish off the illusion.
