A Trick For Small Lips

And no, it’s not “inject a filler.” C’mon. So yeah, it’s holiday season and nothing says holidays! like a great red lip. The only problem for some of us? Thin lips. Not to worry, Teen Vogue got a few tips from celeb makeup artist Tina Turnbow (a Jessica Szohr prettifier) on how to wear a bold lip when your lips are big and bold—all you have to do is: “Pick a shade that is close to your natural lip color, only with a bit more pink. Then, pat illuminating shimmer in the middle of your lip—doesn’t hurt to give a plumper look. Also, a nude lip pencil to line a slight bit outside your natural lip line (I like a heart shape upper lip) then fill in. This will give an illusion of a fuller upper lip, without looking obvious.” The illuminating product I love for this? You have to have Benefit Moon Beam—and it’s a multi-use make-up, anywhere you need a little shimmer, this is your product. [Teen Vogue]
