Luscious, full lips are symbol of sensuality and youthfulness. Many women spend hundreds of dollars on painful, expensive lip injections in the quest for a perfect pout, with results that are often more ﬁsh face than fabulous.
For natural, shapely lips with extra “oomph” there’s no need to needle.
The Ultimate Pout Volumising Lip Kit features two specially created soft-touch pencils to shape and enhance the lips. One is a strobe highlighter for accentuating the cupid’s bow and creating dimension on the lip itself, while the other is a lip deﬁnition pencil for shaping.
Both are super long wear formulas that set instantly for all day wear. The lipstick is a rich, creamy nude in 5 universal shades that complement every skin tone, from pale to dark. The long-lasting formulation locks in moisture for a silky smooth ﬁnish that stays fresh all day. For next level highlight and deﬁnition, the signature luminous gloss adds a touch of youthful hydration exactly where you need it.
To apply, start with the lip deﬁnition pencil. Pro tip alert: when applying lip liner, you can work just above the natural lip line, but only in certain areas. Always keep the line inside the borders of your lips at the outer corners.
For the top lip, as you work up towards the cupid’s bow you can gradually move the lip line outwards so that from about half way between the outer corners of your mouth and the centre of your lips, the line is placed directly above the natural lip border, never any higher.
For the lower lip the same rule applies. Start inside the lip borders at the outer corners and move the line slightly outwards as you work towards the centre, so the line extends just above the natural lip border from about half way to the mid-point. You are trying to create the illusion of a shadow while retaining the natural contours of the lips.
When applying the lipstick, you want to blend it in with the lip liner to create a natural gradient from the lip borders inwards. The formula can be layered for added intensity, so you can work from sheer to opaque with a single product. To highlight the cupid’s bow above the lip liner, work the strobe highlighter into the high peaks of the cupid’s bow, then down into the ‘V’ in the centre.
To highlight the lips, use the strobe pencil to draw two little circles on the lips, placing one directly under the lip peak on either side, about the size of your pinky nail.
For the lower lip, keep the highlighter placement central but go bigger, about the size of your index nail. Apply the gloss in sweeping circles over the areas you have just highlighted.
