First off, before we get into today's post, let me apologize for the lack of posts this last week. I have really bad tonsillitis and an infection in my throat so I have been down and out on medication and haven't gotten out of bed. I'm finally starting to feel better though (thank god) so I finally had the energy to get up and make a post! So...let's get on to how I overdraw my lips!
I know I'm totally the last person on earth to address this topic but...I love over lining my lips. Overdrawing your lips has especially become popular during the last few months because of Kylie Jenner.
Kylie finally admitted to having lip injections in one of the last episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (big surprise, right...) but I still love how she draws her lips in general. Her signature 90's browny-nude color is to die for!
Now, I don't have thin lips by any means but my lower lip is definitely bigger than my top lip. I love to overdraw my top lip so my lips become more even and full. I feel like it adds a lot more balance to my face and it just looks awesome, in my opinion!
Plus, overdrawing your lips is actually really easy and only requires a few products.
All we need for the perfect overdrawn, "Kylie Jenner" lip is two lipsticks and a lip liner.
We're going to need a brown toned nude, a lighter nude, and a brown-nude lip liner.
I used MAC's Velvet Teddy but two good affordable dupes would be Wet n Wild's Bare it All or Rimmel's Mauve It Over. I also used MAC's Naturally Eccentric (a limited edition color) but any basic light nude, or even a concealer, would work!
For my lip liner I used Rimmel's Exaggerate liner in Addiction - a close dupe to MAC's Whirl or MAC's Soar.
Step 1: Start out by having moisturized and exfoliated clean lips. We're going to be using a few products so we don't want our lipstick to stick to dry lips.
Step 2: Take your dark brown-nude lip liner and line your lips. Instead of lining right on your lip line, try to line right above it. This will create an illusion of fuller lips.
Step 3: After outlining your lips, take your lip pencil and draw three vertical lines on your lower lip. This will give the illusion of a pouter, "split" lip (like Angelina Jolie!). You can also line the inside of your top lip to create more depth.
Step 4: Next, take your brown-nude lipstick and apply it all over both your lips up to the new lip line that we created.
Step 5: Last, take either your concealer or your lighter nude lipstick and apply it to the center of your lips. This will give an illusion of light hitting your lips which makes them look fuller! Kylie's famous lip look doesn't have a lighter color in the center but for us thinner lipped people, it helps make them look more full!
And that's it! The easy way to getting full, plump lips without lip injections!
What do you guys think about Kylie Jenner's famous lips? Love them or hate them?
