How To Accentuate Lips Makeup Tutorial:

Apply your favorite foundation and set it with compact to create a flawless makeup base. If you have hyper pigmentation around the mouth area, you should use a darker concealer and conceal all your imperfections to make your lips stand out. Then, apply your favorite lip balm and moisturize your lips. Moisturizing lips is a must prior to lip makeup. It helps in creating an even and neat finish for the lipstick.
Pick a matte lip liner matching your lipstick color. Here, I planned to use a gorgeous bright red colored lip gloss, so I picked a matte red lip liner. Then, start applying the lip liner at the highest peak of your cupid’s bow and gently draw a stroke of diagonal line facing downwards.
Now use the lip pencil to create another diagonal line downwards on the left peak of your cupid’s bow. You have created a perfect cupid bow shape now, which will look like a “X” shape.
Use the same lip pencil and create a neat thin line at the outer perimeter of your lips. Create smaller strokes and then connect it together if you don’t have a steady hand in drawing lines.
Now if you are using a lipstick, then take the lipstick in a thin lip filler makeup brush or if you are using a lip gloss, then use the lip gloss wand like a brush for precise application. Start filling your lips by placing the wand or lipstick brush at the right of your “X” pattern and then fill the left of the pattern to complete filling the upper lip. Then, completely fill your lips by following the natural curve shape of your lip.
Now pick up a highlighting concealer or a lighter colored concealer. The lighter colored concealer should be at least 3 shades lighter than your natural skin tone. Start by outlining your entire lip with the concealer using a thin brush. Carefully outline your lips without pulling in the concealer inside your lip area. Then, use your fingers or a sponge and blend the concealer seamlessly for a neat and natural finish and set it with a compact powder to prevent fading or creasing of the product.
Then, take a matte medium brown eyeshadow in a medium sized flat eyeshadow brush and apply it gently to the center of the lower lip area. This trick is to create a plumper lips effect. But, you should remember to blend the eyeshadow evenly with a fluffy blending brush to make it appear natural. If the matte eyeshadows look slightly stark against your skin tone or if you are not comfortable working with it, then you can replace it with a darker foundation or concealer. The darker concealer has to be at least 3 to 4 shades darker than your natural skin tone.
And there you have it—perfect lips! The shape is just the way lips should look! Who needs botox when you can make your natural lips look so good? A little practice is all you need to get this look just right!
