Top off your spring makeup look with full, shapely lips. In this video tutorial, our aesthetician, Kristen, shares how to achieve a perfect pout in a few easy steps with products from LovelySkin.
Choose a primer, cream concealer or liquid foundation to help prime your lips and create a neutral canvas for color. In our video, Kristen uses jane iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream. You can use your finger or a brush to smooth the product over your lips. Allow it to dry before moving on to Step 2.
Choose a lip liner pencil that closely matches either the lip color you have chosen or your natural lip color. This will help you get a fuller, poutier look. We chose jane iredale Lip Definer Pencil in Rose. Start off by lining your bottom lip. Next, use the liner to draw an X on your Cupid’s bow. This ensures an even shape. Once you have drawn your X, you can line the rest of the upper lip.
Fill in the rest of the lips with liner. This will help intensify the color, and it will also allow your lipstick to stay in place all day.
Apply lipstick directly to lips, or use a brush, like jane iredale Retractable Lip Brush, to achieve even more precision. Kristen uses jane iredale PureMoist Lipstick in Renee in the video.
For an extra plump and pouty look, choose a cream eyeshadow like jane iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow in Oyster, and use your finger to apply it to just the center of your lips. This acts as a highlighter, drawing attention to the fullest part of the lips and creating a plumper appearance. Be sure to rub your lips together to blend.
That’s all there is to it! Now you’re ready to sport your fun new lip look for spring.
