Applying Makeup on Lips
You think you know how to work the best on your lips? But you can do even better!
What Would You Need?
A narrow, flat ended brush, a selection of finely sharpened lip pencils, lip gloss and lipstick (either the conventional tube lipstick or the cream type with a sponge-tip applicator). If your lip color is uneven, then you will need a special lip base or balancer-use a lighter tone on the dark areas and a dark tone on the light areas. These balancers also form a base for lipstick and help to keep the color of the lipstick pure and clear.
Use the Lip Pencil to contour your lips. Always start at the middle of the upper lip, carefully correcting the heart-shaped symmetry of the lip (1 and 2), then work on the curve of the lower lip (3) and extend the line to the corners (4 and 5).
- Lips that are too Thin
To make thin lips look fuller, draw the outline 1 to 2 mm outside the natural contour with the Lip Pencil.
Lips that are too Thick
Conceal their natural outline with the Concealer Pencil, and redraw the contour inside the lip line with the Lip Pencil
Restore balance by correcting with the Concealer Pencil and Lip Pencil
Mask the corners using the Concealer Pencil, ending the line about 1 mm above the actual corners. Then draw the outline of the lower lip with the Lip Pencil, ending the line about 1 mm below the lip corners.
