In The Nude: Kylie Jenner Lip Tricks!
Kylie Jenner has had the most talked about lips in history!
Are they real? Are they fake? What is her secret to achieving the perfect plump pout and nude lip?
Well I have a few tips using my fave lip products so you can create the ultimate nude lip too!
No matter what lip look you want to create it helps to work on a soft, smooth base! Pull out your fave ChapStick, Lip Smackers, Baby Lips or one of the many million lip balms you own and prep your lips at the start of your makeup routine. That way by the time it comes to applying your lip liner/lipstick at the end, your lips with be soft and conditioned and will make for an amazing canvas to work on. Nobody likes chapped, cracked lips especially lipstick!
Lip liner is definitely key! As the name suggests, traditionally you would line the outside of your lips to eliminate your lipstick bleeding BUT now filling in sections or the entire lip using the liner is the way to go. Using a lip liner can help to create shape, definition and contour your lips creating the illusion of a plumper pout. Like they say - fake it til you make it!
TO LIPSTICK OR NOT TO LIPSTICK - THAT IS THE QUESTION!
Now you have a choice - if you love the look a solo lip liner creates then you can skip the lipstick/gloss but if you want to layer up apply your fave nude lipstick. Again this does not have to be over the entire lip, you may choose to apply it only to the center to draw attention to the middle of the lips and have the liner create shadow and depth on the sides. Or if you love the liner look and you want to add some shine, dab some clear or coloured gloss subtly over the top. Keep in mind the type of lipstick you apply over the top will ultimately change your lip look too. Matte or liquid lipsticks will create a more muted look while a lipstick with shimmer will add shine.
To further enhance the size and shape of your lips add some highlighter to the cupids bow and contour under the center of the lower lip right against the lip line - this will create light and shadows for depth.
Remember there are no rules in makeup so experiment until you find the lip look you have been longing for!
