Five steps to Fuller Lips

Get fuller, younger-looking lips in a New York minute. Our resident makeup artist Rebecca Restrepo, shares 5 easy tips to make the process as smooth as your lovely lips are about to look.

1 Why admit your weakness, when you can smooth them over and move on.
Dab and swipe a smidge of concealer or foundation over lips. Not only will it redefine your lipline, but also keep color in its place.

2 Color slightly outside the lines.
Next, use a natural, neutral-colored lip pencil and draw a line slightly above your top lip and slightly below your bottom lip. Don’t exaggerate; you just want to create a little bit fuller lip.

3 Fill in for fullness.
Use the same lip liner to fill in color everywhere EXCEPT for the very center of your upper and lower lips. Use a dab of concealer in the center of upper and lower lips before applying lipstick. This makes the center of your lips lighter, which makes them look fuller.

4 Layer on luxurious, lush color.
Smooth a creamy, high pigment formula stick over lips to help seal in moisture and plump the look of lips.

5 Finish strong with gloss.
Start at the center of the lips (can you tell this area is important?) and apply a light, shimmery lip gloss and blend it outwards. The reflected light helps lips appear even fuller.
