In our ‘Ask The Experts’ series we’ll be chatting to the hairdressers, stylists and make-up artists to find out the insider tricks that you can easily incorporate into your daily routine. This week’s it’s a fuller lips make-up tutorial.
To find out how to perfect the perfect pout, we chatted to the talented Ruby Hammer, one of the best known and most respected make-up artists in the world. Ruby’s worked on shows like Britain’s Next Top Model, 10 Years Younger and This Morning, as well as co-founding cult beauty brand Ruby and Millie.
We’ve not all been blessed with Angelina Jolie-style full lips, but with a little bit of clever make-up you can boost your pout and create the illusion of bigger, fuller lips.
Starting with a sugar scrub, buff away any dead skin to create a smooth surface for your products. It will also boost circulation, meaning naturally your looks will look fuller.
Next, apply a glossy balm to add some moisture. Choosing a nude liner, line the lips going slightly over the natural lip line. Next fill in the lips with the liner.
Choose a bold shade for your main lip colour. The key is to choose a matt shade, with a slight sheen to add the illusion of fullness. Fill in your lips using a brush – this will give you more control.
Next, apply some gloss in the centre of your lips for some added volume – and you’re good to go!
