Kylie Jenner‘s lips have been getting a lot of attention lately. And it’s no wonder…
Just a year ago, Kylie boasted a cute pair of normal-sized lips (which was already plumper than most thanks to those incredible Kardashian genes).
But fast-forward 12 months, and the reality TV star’s impossibly full pout – seen splashed all over Kylie’s Instagram account – has been making massive waves in the beauty world. Just how has this happened?!
While surgery and lip filler rumours are abound, it could also simply be the result of some very clever make-up artistry.
We all know the Kardashians are total pros when it comes to beauty – hello, Kim Kardashian‘s savvy contouring tricks – so it would come as no surprise to learn that little Kylie’s picked up a few illusion-making tips of her own.
Surgery or not, a good lip pencil and some clever drawing can give anyone a Kylie-style pout in no time. Here’s how:
1) First, prep your lips with a moisturising balm to create a smooth base before applying colour. Try Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No Shine Lip Balm (£9).
2) Next, line your lips with MAC Lip Pencil in Spice (£12.50) starting from the outer corners going up towards the cupids bow, drawing slightly above the lip line to create the illusion of of a fuller, plumper pout.
3) After repeating the same process on the bottom lip line, fill in your entire lips with the pencil to give a ’90s-style matte finish.
4) To finish, dab a tiny bit of MAC’s Moisturecover Concealer (£15.50) on the centre of yout bottom lip and blend well with your finger to highlight your pout.
And there you have it. Now that you have the dirty deets on how to achieve Kylie’s epic ’90s lip look, go try it out for yourselves.
