This Is The Beauty Trick You Need To Step Up Your Lip Game
Lips have always been one of the focal points of any beauty look through the years. But with the emergence of new forms of lippies—from mattes to liquids—and lip queen Kylie Jenner, a lipstick is now a non-negotiable makeup product for most girls. While lippies are known to step up your lip game in a snap, lipsticks aren't the only things you can use to create the illusion of luscious lips! Apparently it is possible to contour nearly face because lip contouring is now all the rage in the beauty scene for instant fuller and plumper lips! So give your lips more depth and dimension by trying out these easy tips and tricks and score an A+ in the beauty department without breaking a sweat.
Using a lip liner that is slightly darker than your lippie shade, line just a little bit outside of the border of your lips to create the illusion of more depth.
This tip is great for an easy every day look—especially when you don't have the luxury of time. Make sure to blend the liner and lippie together so you don't get a harsh contrast.
Dark lippies make your lips look smaller, so opt for lighter or nude colors instead!
Try: Powder Mattes in Touch of Nude P299, Maybelline
If you're the type of girl who wants a simple beauty routine, but still want to score a fuller pout, then this tip is for you! Although dark shades are gorgeous and edgy, they also tend to make your lips looks smaller and flatter than they actually are. So when in doubt, go light!
But if you really insist on a dark lippie, a combination of light and dark hues will do the trick!
There's definitely more upkeep required for this trick, but the effect will make your lips fuller STAT! It's all about applying a darker lippie to the outer parts of your lips and applying a lighter shade on the inner middle part of your lip. Blend it all together for a K-Beauty-inspired gradient effect that'll leave your puckers plumper than ever!
Highlight the center of your lips with some lip gloss.
Try: Plush Rush Lip Gloss in Pillow Talk P938, Butter London
You can use this trick together with any other method you use to color in your lips to create an instant illuminating effect! If you're not a fan of lip gloss, then dust on some highlighter instead for added shimmer.
Highlight over your cupid's bow and shade below your bottom lip.
Try: Feeling Sculptacular Face Contour Kit P1299, Happy Skin
Dabbing on highlighter on the cupid's bow and blending in some contour powder below your bottom lip to make your lips pop in all the right ways.
"M" is the magic letter!
To those who want to go all out with their contouring routine, this is for you! Thickly line your lips in three areas: the upper lip, the hard-to-reach sides of your lips, and the bottom lip. For the upper lip, draw on an "M" (kind of like how you would draw birds back in grade school) by the border of your upper lip following your natural lip line. Draw the same "M" on the upper side of your bottom lip. Swipe on a lippie two shades lighter and you'll instantly notice how your lip liner creates subtle shadows to help your lips pop!

There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
