Kylie Jenner Lip secret? Lip contour tutorial..
So my most popular request on tutorials and blogs is the Kylie Jenner lip! And one of my pictures went viral in 2014 (unfortunately I wasn’t credited as an artist in a lot of posts though so many don’t realise this is MY signature lip trick invention) … People thought perhaps this was Kylie Jenner’s secret. Just to clarify this picture below is mine ! 🙂
(products used – Rimmel lipliner in ‘cappucino’ and mac plushglass in ‘ample pink’
So I wanted to talk through the steps..
1st I over draw my lips slightly with a darker shade than the all over lip product to create a shadow/contour.
Then I line the creases in my lips – Why though?
Well take a look at this picture of Angelina Jolie’s lips:
Now you can see that where they are so juicy and plump they have folds in the lips. So we want to emphasise/fake this in ours with a simple lip contour. This will create an illusion of plump pockets of pure juiciness in your lips.
Now we don’t want the lines to appear harsh so we need to blend – just like went we contour our face with highlight and contour; we blend don’t we? So thats what I have done and then just apply desired lipstick or gloss over the top!
If you cant see the contour at all after because the lipstick is too dark then you can do these steps in reverse too.
You can find your natural creases by pouting and seeing wheres best to draw and follow a few of your lines.
Please note you should NOT just be drawing stripes. You are stratigically contouring creases in a just a couple of effective places.. Please see a couple more pics below.
Please see my instagram for product names and also heres the lip contour in action below…
