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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

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.
