Using Highlighters To Get Fuller Lips

If you're like many women, you may be wondering, how to get fuller lips? While some women are born with big lips, some of us were not and have to use lip highlighting or contouring to create fuller lips and that's o.k., as long as you do it right. Lets' do it right.

Here are six simple stages to fuller lips 

Step 1: Before you start highlighting, it’s very vital to prepare by moisturizing your lips. Lipstick and dry lips do not blend well, so make sure you prepare your lip first.

Remove any dead skin cells and have a smooth canvas to work on, apply a lip scrub onto a clean lip brush or toothbrush and use a circular motion to gently exfoliate your lips. If your lips are really sensitive, a child's toothbrush can be your go to...

Next, grab your non-oily lip balm and apply it from the focal point of the base lip first towards the corners.  Once you’ve prepared and moisturized your lips properly, you can proceed with step two.

Step 2: The secret to highlighting your lips is applying highlighter powder on your entire lip area until it is totally matted. This makes lipstick last longer by giving it something to stick to.

Step 3: Then, grab a dark color (brown) lip pencil and follow the normal edges of your lips, beginning at the middle best and focus base of your lips and after that work outward. In the event that you have to refine the lines, just draw over these area with your lip liner and blend where required.

Step 4: Now, center around the cross contour lines that, for most lips, are unmistakably noticeable..  Then, trace your lip lines and highlight them with your dark pencil. Smudge the lines a bit with your fingers to relax the shading. Daintily fill in your lips using the darker pencil.

Step 5: Use a highlighter and apply it on the areas of your lips that get light.  The perfect spots to feature are appropriate over your Cupid's bow and around the edges of your lips.

Step 6: In order for your lip contouring to last longer, apply a few layers of gloss with a brush. It will highlight your lips and create an astonishing, lustrous  finish to your makeup look. Just one swipe should be able to provide a mind blowing set of colorful contoured lips (view lip contouring video by Maryam Maquillage).
