Some say that thick lips are the sexiest but we beg to differ. Thin or petite lips are very sexy too, they look so adorable and angelic such that a lot of people with this feature don’t have to waste much time trying to figure out how best to apply lipsticks so as to be perfect on their lips.
Well, whether you have always been thin-lipped, have a petite lips, or are suddenly experiencing a loss of volume which could also be an unfortunate side effect of aging, you should keep in mind, a few makeup and skincare tips.
Here are the five practical makeup tips for ladies with petite lips;
Skipping Deep Red Lipsticks: As a lady with thin lips, you ought to go for nudes and soft pinks, which you should make your best bets. To apply this, use a flesh-toned pencil to trace just slightly outside your natural lip line. Then fill in your lips completely with the pencil. Top them off with a creamy neutral lipstick in a similar shade and enjoy the magic of optical illusion.
Being Strategic About Shine: Avoid adding gloss all over. Just apply a touch of gloss to the center of your top and bottom lips. This will reflect light and give them a 3-D effect. Finish with a dab of highlighter on your Cupid’s bow (the peak of your top lip) to add visual depth. This looks great!
Bringing Focus To Your Eyes: Fluttery lashes, smoky shadow and bold brows: Never be afraid to go big on the eyes to counteract your petite lips. And since you are going neutral on the lips, a heavier eye won’t look too overdone.
Treating Lips At Night: Consider a nighttime lip treatment that has peptides and hyaluronic acid to help plump lips and soften lines while you sleep. Anti-aging skincare shouldn’t just stop with your eye cream.
Regularly Boosting Circulation: Before ever putting on lip colour, take a toothbrush (or a washcloth) and gently rub it over your lips in a circular motion. Not only does this help nix flakes, but it also promotes circulation which actually does temporarily plump them up.
Every lady with a petite lips should get acquainted with these practical tips in order to stand out with your makeup.
