31 Days Of Basic Beauty

Day 5 - Working With Your Lip Shape

For some weird reason, lip shapes seem to be the toughest shape chart for me. There are a heaps of different opinions out there about lips shapes, and to be honest I got a bit overwhelmed at times. However, I have taken slow deep breaths and made my own attempt at helping you out with lip shapes and identifying one that best describes yours.

Thin Lower Lip - If you have a thin lower lip the aim is to create an illusion of a plumper lower lip to even out the mouth. draw your lip line just outside the lower lip and inside the upper lip.

Oval Lips - Colour the centre upper lid into a slight cupids bow.

Thin Upper Lip - Gently build up the curve of the upper lip to make it look balanced.

Downturned Lips - Draw in the upper lip at the corners of the mouth.

Thin Lips - Create a fuller appearance by tracing around the outside of the lip in a gentle curving line.

Large Full Lips - Brush lipstick inside of lip line, keep the colour sharp near the corners of the mouth.

Small Lips - Extend the sides of the mouth by building out the sides of the top and bottom lips.

Sharp Lips - Fill in most of the cupids bow then widen the top and bottom lip to create more curve.

Uneven Lips - Fill in areas that need to be evened out.
