Want to make a statement? I mean a REAL STATEMENT? Go for deep matte purple lips. You for sure will be noticed.
Apply your preferred highlighter on the cupids bow (the double curve on the upper lip). Since dark colours make lips appear smaller, this trick will make your lips look fuller. I recommend MAC Mineralize Skinfinish #Soft & Gentle.
Line the lips perfectly with Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip waterproof lip liner pencil #12C and fill them in. This will help the shape of the lips look perfect and keep the lip colour in place.
Fill the lips with NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil #Train Bleu. Even though technically it is a pencil but it’s too thick to achieve a perfect lip line. It will add the depth and slight hydration to the lips but will remain looking matte. Keep this in your purse and touch up the lips after eating (oil removes any makeup, so oily food will too).
