Bold and big is the way to go as far as lips are concerned. But if we’re all not blessed with those picture perfect lips how can we get that perfect pout? Well, we’ve got you covered! Here are some easy hacks that can make your pout fabulous! Line those Lips
If not blessed with full lips then lining is the trick you need. Lining your lips is the perfect way to adjust the shape of your lips. A quick hack you can try is creating an “X” right at your cupids bow for the perfect upper lip shape. You can also use a lip liner
to slightly over line your lips, depending on where you’re lacking some lusciousness, and create that desired lip look.
Go bold or go home
This might be our easiest hack! Go bold with your colors. For everyday it’s common to opt for nudes and mauve lipstick shades
to compliment a more professional look, but they aren’t necessarily the stand out colors you need. Bold reds, corals and pinks are always sure to stand out on your lips and with minimal effort will make your pout look fuller. See: Perfect Curves Chubby Matte Lipstick
