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

Suggested: Bobbi Brown Art Stick (Brown Berry, Rose Brown, Rich Nude); Christian Louboutin Safki Lip Definer; Anastasia Beverly Hills Nude Awakeningbobbi brown

 

  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

Suggested: Rouge Louboutin Velvet Matte; YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick; Dior Addict Lipstick (Black Tie)christianlouboutin-rougelouboutin-8052001_X001_1_1200x1200_1438602535

 

  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

Suggested: YSL Rouge Pur Couture Kiss & Love Collection (Fuchsia); Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet (La Diva); MAC Mattene LipstickYSL Pink

 

  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

Suggested: Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick (Noir Revelateur); Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayonbite beauty

 

  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

Suggested: MAC Lipglass Viva Glam Ariana Grande; Dior Addict Milky Tint; Chanel Rouge Allure (Pimpante)dior gloss

 

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.

How To Work Pop Into Your Make-Up This Season

Unless you are Nicki Minaj or someone with the confidence like Lady Gaga, the mere though of a bright pink lip or turquoise eye lids generate an image in your mind that looks like this:

While this is a great look to pull off at a spectrum-themed party, it’s not your everyday look. But if we can work with shimmer and shine can pop be far behind? Here are 5 techniques to add a dash of pop into your makeup palette and not look like a rainbow.

 

  1. Tomatina

The safest bet when it comes to turning up the saturation is bright lips. And the safest of safe bets is a tomato red lip. It’s a blend of crimson and orange, so if you can’t find the right bright, just do some mixing to come up with your own tomatina shade according to your skin tone.TomatoMAC

  1. Cornered

Caking your eyelids with a bright tiny is a trend right out of the 80s so let’s crank up the classy and turn down the retro. Opt for a vibrant shade like pop pink, lilac, lemon yellow and the likes, and highlight either the inner or outer corner of your eyes. This way your face gets just the right amount of pop sans the Cyndi Lauper effect.

  1. Line Up

Not too sure about an electric, pop or hot anything on you face? Simply turn down the quantity. For starters, begin with a colored liner and gradually experiment with brighter shades and, wing lengths, thickness, et al. It’s a good idea to pair your colored liner with a slightly tinted (contrasting or a different shade of the same color) eye shadow.7-ways-to-Rock-that-COLOR-EYELINER-without-looking-GAUDY-cover

  1. Peachy Cheeky

This one’s a great trick to brighten up your face with just a few brush strokes. Let the rest of your make up be as f, just swap your blush for a shade that is more on the peach or rose side. Pink cheeks not only make one look fresher but are also an excellent way of highlighting the cheekbones.20131205-153624

  1. Mascara(de)

If all else fails for some reason, this one trick will be your knight in shining armor. Just pick up a mascara tint that is far far away from black. Like an electric blue or violet and dab it onto your lower and upper lashes. Skip the liner and go for bold brows for max effect.color-mascaras-00c
