The mouth is an important part of the face, reflecting our individuality. The mouth brightly expresses sensuality, mood and character, therefore its correct and aesthetic make-up is of great importance. If the shape of the lips in something does not suit or even upsets – despair is not worth it, the disadvantages are straightforward to correct with the help of decorative cosmetics.
To solve the problem we need tools – a contour pencil and a brush, as well as lipstick and shine. And you also need to study your lip shape and determine what you want to emphasize in them, and what, on the contrary, disguise.
First of all, put a tonal foundation on the lips and lightly powder it. Then proceed to the piping. To more accurately and confidently draw a line, it is better to lean your elbow on the table. Lips should be in a relaxed state – slightly closed, but not compressed. Begin to trace the lips along the edge along the natural line with small touches of a pencil or brush in the direction from the middle of the upper lip to the corners. To achieve a more rounded shape of the lips, a little do not finish the line to the end. The same is done with the lower lip.
How to fix the shape of the lips?
If the lips are too full, you can visually reduce their size. To do this, powder the skin around the lips and draw a new contour below the natural line.
Accordingly, with too thin lips line we draw just above the natural line. We use not too dark pencil – it will visually increase the volume. Lipstick, on the contrary, choose bright. Shine is superimposed on the middle of the lips in a small amount.
If the mouth is very small, draw its outline to the very corners. We use bright lipstick and do not regret shine.
The mouth with the lowered corners gives the face a frustrated and tired look. Correcting the situation, applying to the corners tonal means more light tone than used for the face. We draw the contour line so as to raise the corners of the upper lip, then pull the line of the lower lip towards them. Shine is applied only to the middle of the lower lip.
If the lips have different completeness, we correct them by piping. For a more complete lip, use a pencil and a lipstick of a darker color, for a thin one – a lighter color. To make the lips visually more prominent, we use several tones of lipstick. At the edge of the lips and in the corners we put the tones darker, in the middle – brighter and lighter. We put the gloss in the center.
A cheerful expression gives the person a crescent-shaped mouth. In a strong correction this form of the mouth does not need, but if there is a desire to make it more serious, you can proceed as follows. We bring the lower lip to the very corners. In case the upper lip is thinner, make the line of the liner wider on it and apply a little shine on it. Shine overlap only in the center of the lower lip.
