Top tips

  • Conceal the outlines of your lips for a blank canvas this means you are in control if you want to follow your lip line or overdraw your lips to achieve a fuller look. This also stops the pigment of the lip liner from bleeding. 
  • If you want a straight lip line draw from the edge of your cupid’s bow to the corners of your mouth from top to bottom.
  • For a curved lip line, draw from the corners of your mouth to the top of the cupid’s bow, in a motion from bottom to the top.
  • If, like me, you haven’t got a steady hand, outline your lips by drawing a cross on your cupid’s bow and dashes down the lip. Connect the dots gently and fill in with lipstick.
  • Always add your gloss to the centre parts of the mouth.
  • A darker outer lip and a brighter inner lip creates the illusion of a fuller lip.
