The Ultimate Lipstick Guide For All Lip Types

Recently, celebrity YouTuber Lilly Singh a.k.a. Superwoman launched her liquid lipcolor shade called ‘Bawse’ in collaboration with Smashbox. And I won’t be lying if I say, “I’m a unicorn”. But here’s the thing, Lilly’s red looks smashing on her and on me it’s straight up odd. Why? Because I possess surrealistic blade-thin lips!Smashbox

Enter, the lipstick guide. What I mean is that if a red doesn’t look good on you, a russet might. And if a russet doesn’t, beige might. Follow this guide to pick out the shade that goes best with your pout.

 

  1. Thin Lips

Most people with thin lips may already know this, but for those who don’t, dark colors shouldn’t really be your pick. Go for lighter and more natural shades of pink, beige and nudes. Start by lining your lip and then fill it in for a gorgeous and fuller look.thin lips

  1. Full Lips

Read, perfection. Sorry ladies, but I am totally J. Simply because while you discuss the latest crimson shade by YSL and Louboutin, I am here retouching my clear gloss. But no hard feeling y’all! Oh and, as if it’s news but you chicas can carry off pretty much every color but leave the nudes for the rest. Pretty please?scarlet johannsen

  1. Top Heavy Lips

You, woman, are the reason the ‘pout’ came into existence. You make the ‘duck face’ look effortless to the extent of seeming legit. And although, your pout is perfection, it’s okay to want to turn down the fullness at times. All you need is a darker and a slightly lighter shade of the same color. Fill in the fuller half with the darker shade and the lighter shade on your lower lip. Or you could just use a dark tone throughout and still look like a million bucks!Moroccanoil  "Inspired By Women" Campaign Celebration

  1. Bottom Heavy Lips

One word, ombré. You can totally rock that trick on your fuller half. Simply fill in your lips with the desired shade and dab some white make up pencil or nude eye shadow on to the center of your lower lip. Blend lightly for a magically balanced and gorgeous look. Or, as mentioned earlier, go for a single dark shade and rock it. Ombré is cooler though. Just saying.1lily-collins-ombre-lip

  1. Large Lips

Although totally kissable and unbelievably attractively, large lips can at time overshadow other facial features. Turn down your lip volume by wearing a soft matte color on the lip and highlight prominent features of your face – eyes, brows, and cheekbones, et al.kim-kardashian-01-600x800

  1. Small Lips

Adorable as they are, small lips sometimes deserve due attention. Bestow them with some spotlight by picking up lip colors that have some shimmer, shine or gloss. These not only highlight your lips but also add a good amount of fullness.small lips

Important as it is to know your lip shape well and shades that suit you, it is also a good idea to practice some of these tricks before taking ‘em out for a spin.

 

5 Lipsticks That Will Up Your Pout Game

Before you give this read a pass, let me tell you that I am not enlisting this season’s hottest lipstick shades. This list is in fact a compilation of the craziest R&Ds in the lip care and make up arena. From color-changing sticks to annoyingly perfect lip tattoos, here are 5 lip products that are anything but ordinary.

 

  1. Fran Wilson Mood Matcher

The sticks are available in a bunch of regular and some not-so-regular shades. Here’s the catch though, once you wear the lipstick, it changes color. Now, I don’t mean like a traffic signal but more like different shades pink, russet, maroon, et al, depending on your “body chemistry”. Also, the stubborn 12-hour formula enriched with Aloe and vitamin E is not going to fade whether you eat, drink or scoff down an entire human.moodmatcher

 

  1. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Crème Colour Concentrate

The 100% vegan and cruelty free make up cake by OCC can be used as an eye shadow, blush and lip stain. Enriched with emollients and humectants including aloe leaf extract, cocoa extract, and vitamin E, the smooth and super velvety texture coupled with gorgeous shades like golden, silver and bronze give a perfect matte metallic finish.obsessive compulsive

 

  1. Berrisom Peel Off Lip Tint

A Korean trend (of course), the peel-off lip colours are brilliant, actually. The three-step apply, peel and pout process is slightly time consuming but the results are mind blowing! And though this one might not be advisable for the impatient but if you can live through the tad lengthy application process, it’s worth the lip exfoliation.berrisom_mt_001_light-500x500

 

  1. MAC Lipstick Halsey

Grey is subtle – it’s neither endearing like black nor overly tranquil like white. It’s gorgeous and it’s on a stick inside a MAC case! The offbeat yet gorgeous slate grey lipstick by MAC is not much, still everything. The sultry grey is bold and when it’s on that pout, it’s nothing short of unique and strong.Screen Shot 2016-04-18 at 5.24.14 AM

 

  1. KA’OIR Glitzstick

The Glizstick Collection by KA’OIR is the perfect reason to step out of your matte-fied comfort zone and indulge in some crazy glitter. The Glitzstick comes as a box of shimmery lip glitters that can be patted onto your favorite lip stain or you could go ahead and buy yourself an entire Glitzstick package wherein you get the base color, the glitz and a complimentary applicator stick. The shades range from a brilliant white to a bold black. If you’re one for a little less OTT, try their Sparkle from the Lip Pop collection. Less shimmer and shine but tantamount chic!
