Natural makeup tricks can enhance lips

Natural makeup tricks can enhance lips
If you want luscious lips there are a few tricks of the trade that you can use with natural makeup to get the perfect pout.

Writing for the Huffington Post, renowned makeup artist Napoleon Perdis recommended dabbing a light shade of concealer on the outer corners of the mouth.

'This creates a lifting effect that makes you look like you're slightly smiling all the time - it's an old trick pioneering makeup artists used in the golden era of Hollywood,' he explained.

If you've got thin lips, there are ways of creating the illusion of fullness using natural makeup, Mr Perdis continued.

He recommended highlighting the centre of the pout with lip lacquer or some shimmering loose eye dust to reflect the light.

You can also use colours that are lighter and then shade the corners of the mouth with a darker hue to make lips look plumper, he said.

Celebrity makeup artist and Pearl Drops spokesperson Ariane Poole has also said if you decide to use bright colours on your lips then you need to make sure that they are applied absolutely perfectly.
