Introduction

When it comes to makeup, I’m a huge fan of contouring. It’s the perfect way to enhance your best features without looking like you’re wearing too much makeup. But while most people know what contouring is and how it works on the face, there are plenty who don’t know how to do it correctly when it comes to their lips. So today we’re going over all the essential tips for creating the perfect lip contour!

Contouring the lips helps define their shape and make them look fuller.

Contouring is a great way to enhance your best features, whether you’re trying to create a more defined cheekbone or plump up the apples of your cheeks. Contouring can be done with makeup or with makeup brushes (like our favorite contour brush), but it’s especially effective when done with lip liner or lipstick that matches your natural lip color!

You can use any shade of brown eyeshadow as long as it’s matte–this will give you an even finish without any shine so that there isn’t too much contrast between your face and neckline. Make sure not to apply too much product at once; instead use small dabs from different angles until you get an even line across each side of both lips (you may need another layer).

Use a contour brush to define the top line of your lips, then use a small brush or the tip of your finger to fill in the rest.

  • A contour brush can help create a sharp line, but if you don’t want to spend money on one, that’s okay! You could also use any small angled makeup brush and it will work just fine.
  • You should start by defining your cupid’s bow (the V shape above each lip) and drawing an upward curve at the outer corner of each lip before filling it in with color using either the tip of a small angled brush or even just with your finger–just be careful not to blend too much! This will give you that coveted Kylie Jenner pout without having to overdo it on liner or liner alone.

Pick a darker shade than your natural lip color, but not so dark that it’s unnatural.

If you’re not sure what shade to use, go to a makeup counter and ask for help. There are many shades available for darker skin tones!

If you’d rather not visit a store or prefer buying online because it’s convenient and saves time, there are also tons of websites dedicated specifically to selling makeup products for people with darker skin tones (and even more general sites like Sephora). These sites often have free shipping options as well!

If all else fails: use lipstick in the same shade as your natural lip color.

Apply concealer first to ensure your lips are clean and free of any oils or residue that might prevent makeup from adhering properly.

Use concealer on a brush or finger to cover any imperfections on your lips. Make sure to blend well so that the concealer looks natural!

You may also want to use a lip liner pencil in order to define the shape of your lips before filling them in with lipstick or gloss.

To complete the look, apply a highlighter on top of your contour for an instant plump effect (we love Maybelline New York Color Sensational High Shine Lip Glosses).

Use a small brush or finger to apply it in the center of your upper lip and blend outwards. This will give you fuller-looking lips without making them look too heavy or overdone. The key is finding a shade that’s lighter than your natural lip color so that it doesn’t compete with the rest of your makeup but still adds dimension and shine.

Contouring is a great way to enhance your best features!

If you want to draw attention to the eyes and cheekbones, contouring can be used. If you have a round face, or would like to create the illusion of having a slimmer face, this technique will help define the shape of your face.

Conclusion

We hope these tips helped you learn how to contour your lips. If you want to make sure your look stays put all day long, try applying a lip primer before applying any other products. This will help keep your lipstick from smudging or bleeding onto other areas of your face when eating or drinking water!
