Hullo, today I’m going to teach you what I
do to deal with having disappointingly thing lips. If you’ve got thin lips and you want
to make them look thicker, I’ll teach you all the tricks I’ve learnt about how to create
the illusion of having thicker lips. You might also want to try a plumping lip gloss? Can’t
hurt. Just using normal makeup, pencils, lipsticks, and things. I’ll show you what I do!
See what I mean? Much thin. So disappoint. You want to keep your lips healthy in general,
so you should drink plenty of water and give them the occasional exfoliate with a cloth.
Use a chapstick too. First trick: which I like. Take a dark coloured eyeshadow, some
sort of natural colour. Brown. This one’s Revlon… the same one I use on my cheeks!
Just put a teeny weeny bit on your fingertip and dab it in the corners of your mouth. It
creates a kind of slightly doll-like look. Not too much, just enough to make a little
shadow. Now, dark colours will make you lips look
smaller, dark gives the illusion of … making things look smaller. So ideally you want a
lighter colour. I’m going to use a… brownish, pinkish kind of…. thing. So, come a little
bit closer… you want to do a line around your lips in pencil, but, go beyond where
your lips actually stop. You want to be able to create a sort of roundness. By accentuating
the middle. Just watch. Yeah? Looks a bit crazy at the moment. Not the outside, just
the middle. Fill it in a bit. This is just a brown pencil, the brand’s been worn off.
Next I’m going to fill that is with a sort of… nude coloured lipstick. This is a Revlon
one. “Sparkling Cider”. How nice. There. This trick is very good: next you want
a white pencil. Again, can’t tell the brand. But whatever who cares. If not white, if your
skin’s dark, use a lighter shade than your skin. And … the two wee… lines, I’ve forgotten
what they’re called! That go between your nose and your mouth. Draw lines on those.
Like this, all the way up from your lips to your nose. Then use the white pencil to outline
the lipline that you’ve already done. Like that. Another thing you can do, is take a
darker colour, I’m going to use black cause that’s all I have, and put that one the outside
corners. And blend it thoroughly. Next take a black pencil, or a darker shade than the
lipstick you have on, this can look bad so be careful, try and create a little U shape
at the bottom of your top lip. Dunno if you can see that…
And blend it. Like that, but less terrible.
Now this last step will require practice. Try doing it a few times before going into
public with it. What’s a good illusion, is to make it look like your lips are casting
their own shadow. Go about half an inch or so below where your lips stop, and draw a
tiny, tiny, tiny little line. Tiny! Tiny. Using a smudgy stick, or fingertip,
blend it in so it looks more like a shadow. And kind of push it downwards.If you over
do it, you can even it out by putting powder over the top. Or more white pencil. Sorry
if I’m squinting a lot. It’s hard for me to see the screen. Another trick related to highlights,
is to take the white pencil, or white eyeshadow, or I dunno, I white lipstick? And put a little
highlights in the centre of your lips. So you’ve put dark on the corners and light in
the middle, which you know… you’ll see! Do that all the way down. To the bottom, even
the part that’s not your real lips. And lastly, but but least, lip gloss! Here’s two different
Loréan ones I like at the moment. It’s best to use a clear or pearly white one. Don’t
slather it on, but do cover up. Very carefully, don’t want to smudge your beautiful work.
And there we are! Done! Doesn’t that look better? I hope. So yeah, do practice and if
you give this a go, let me know how you get on. Stay spoOky. Bye!
