OK, CUPID – 3 SMART HACKS FOR FULLER LIPS
Hacks that highlight the Cupid’s bow are the quickest way to a reality TV-worthy pout—no lip kits necessary.
X MARKS THE POUT
Yes, the perfect Cupid’s bow is possible: Just make an X. Using any lip pencil, draw a diagonal line that extends down from the highest point of your top lip. Do the same thing to the other side of your lip. Continue your lip-lining as usual then fill in with your favourite colour.
Add highlighter to the centre of your top lip and in the V between. Next, slick on lipstick or gloss. The added shimmer from the highlighter creates a show-stopping illusion of bigger lips.
Use a lipliner to slightly overdraw the Cupid’s bow but don’t over-line the sides. Instead, fill in the inside corners of your lips so they look darker than the rest of your lips. The extra shading adds depth to make lips look fuller. Follow with a creamy lipstick or gloss in the centre of your lips to emphasise your pout.
