How To Overline Your Lips For A Plumper Look
Exfoliate & Moisturize
Chapped and dry lips do not create a smooth canvas to work on, so prep and hydrate your lips, and don’t forget to wax the peach fuzz above the lip. Exfoliate with a toothbrush or lip scrub like the Fresh Sugar Lip Polish Exfoliator, and then follow up with a moisturizing lip balm.
Lip Shade
For a more natural full pout, go for a neutral lip liner or select a color that is just slightly darker than your actual lip. Avoid using lip liners that are nowhere near the same color as your natural lip color, and if you want a wine-red lipstick color, opt for a dark wine or dark brown lip liner.
Highlighting & Shading
Outline your lip starting from your cupid’s bow by drawing an ‘X’ over it and filling it in with the same liner, then add a highlighter over your cupid’s bow. Shade the edges of your lips because shading your liner in and out of the natural lip line prevents harsh lines.
Apply Gloss
Fill in the rest of your lips with matte or cream lipstick, but if you prefer the feel of your lip liner, you can use that instead. Finally, apply some gloss to make your lips appear extra plumped.
