Whether you think she's had work done or whether you think she's just genius at applying lip liner, one thing's for sure, everyone is obsessed with Kylie Jenner and her lips.
I don't think any one of us will ever really know if she's had her lips done but regardless, I am about to show you a teeny bit of makeup trickery that will give you that Kylie Jenner look without the surgery or the price tag.
Lip liners are so important and I don't think women realise the necessity of having them in their makeup bags or what they can actually do.
When used they can create illusions to make your lips look smaller, bigger, darker or pouty, depending on your choice of colour and application.
When creating the Kylie look, I would always go for a shade of lipliner slightly darker to whatever colour lipstick you are using because this is the easiest way to help define or exaggerate the contours of your lips. Also, when used with lipstick they help prevent feathering, bleeding or cracking.
First of all, start by warming up your lip liner by moving it back and forth on the back of your hand - this will make it nice and soft and waxy and it will just glide onto your lips. To get the Kylie look you must draw outside of your natural lipline to give the illusion that your lips are bigger than they actually are.
Use your natural lip line as a guideline but turn your pencil flat on its side rather than in a delicate sharp point and slide down and across the lips. This creates a really thick lipline outside the original perimeter of the lips.
To create a natural contour, I then used my lip pencil to gently shade in the upper centre, bottom centre and outer corners of the lip. Next I applied my lipstick but left enough room between that and the contrast of the thick lipline.
I smudged my lips together, blended out any harsh edges with my lip brush and voila!
Do you like the Kylie look? Have you tried to copy it but ended up looking more like Pete Burns? Will you give this method a try? Let's hear it in the comments!
