Juicy,full lips are the ultimate trend and the beauty industry knows – always knows. There is no reason to try every “fuller lips in 5 secs” product or get injections or fillers when all you need is in your beauty bag.
With the right lip treatment and only 3 makeup products you can create a chic , full pout avoiding all the pain and of course spending less money.
Lip care is as important as makeup
If your lips are dry and dehydrated then no amount of makeup will make them look good. Remove any dead skin by gently brushing your lips with a toothbrush or use a lip scrub 1-2 times a week. Then apply your favorite lip balm or a lip butter for extra moisture – my top product is the Avène Cold cream-and you are ready for the next step – makeup .
Lip pencil-Lipstick-Lipgloss – That’s all you need
Lip plumpers,35 different lipstick and lip pencil shades for ombre effects, who has time for that?I use only 3 products , I just choose the texture and the shades that help me to create a juicy look .
- Nude Lip pencil . I line my lips following my natural shape and this nude-brownish tone creates a shadow that gives me more volume – in other words Lip Contouring . Shiseido Smoothing Lip Pencil no701
- Light(but not “concealer looking” light) Lipstick . Darker lipsticks make your lips look smaller so choose light,nude ones close to your natural lip colour . I prefer peachy-pinks as they look great with every makeup look. NARS Audacious Lipstick Brigitte
- Lipgloss . The magic product that creates the 3D effect as it catches the light perfectly and your lips look healthy and moisturized.Clear or coloured, apply a small amount on the centre of your lips and blend the lip pencil and lipstick together.Hourglass Lipgloss Reflect
Keeping up with the trends is great but you should adapt them to your own style and personality . Just be the best version of yourself and not another clone of some celebrity or influencer.
Please no more duck lips!
