Top tips for lips

Hi Beauts.

As we know summer is (hopefully) heading this way pretty soon, which means it's time to break out the bright and bold lipsticks. Which means those pout need to be looking pretty and perfect. 

The tips I'm going to share are some that I've heard make up artists swear by, and some that I've found work through trial and error. Let's get into it shall we?

Tip 1:

If your going for a bold shade, such as red, or a matte lipstick make sure to exfoliate your lips and get rid of any dry dead skin. The Lush lip scrubs are perfect for this, or you can mix a little sugar with olive oil to make your own.

Tip 2:

For a fuller pout, use a lip liner that matches your chosen lipstick (or one that matches your lips) and line your Cupid's bow - the pointed part of your top lip, and the centre of your bottom lip. Don't forget to fill in the rest of your lips too, then apply your lipstick or lipgloss.

Tip 3:

If you want fuller looking lips but don't have a lip liner, apply your chosen lipstick or gloss then chose a shade of gloss that is lighter and has a little shimmer. Apply this only to the centre of your top and bottom lip, doing this gives a highlight effect and makes your lips appear bigger.

Tip 4: 

If you have a fuller bottom lip and a thinner top lip, take a lip liner and draw a straight line along the highest points of your Cupid's bow, making sure to fill in the rest of your lips with the liner followed by your favourite lipstick/lipgloss.

Tip 5:

And finally, for a longer lasting lip colour start off my blotting your lips to remove any moisture. Next apply your lipstick and blot again. Apply another layer of lipstick, and finish off my applying a ting amount of loose translucent powder.

Do you have any favourite tips to keep your pout looking pretty?
