Been demoing lips this past week - This is one I did on myself, a combination of three looks the students sent me.
They thoroughly enjoyed trying this one out.
I took all the eye catching features of the lip-looks they loved, and put them all together!
This one lip look contains texture, striping, ombré, pigment, matte, and vibrant colour clashing!
This is a close up of the lips from my recent shoot with Martin Higgs & Sam Englebrecht.
On the lips are Lime Crime’s ‘Kaleidoscope’ & ‘Candy Apple’.
Resembles a galaxy, what with all the glitter from the gloss!
I lined the lips using MACs ‘Nightmoth’, colouring in the outside edges. Then I took MACs ‘Brick’ pencil and coloured in the centre of the lips.
Lastly I took the two Lime Crime lip glosses to coat the top of the lip pencil. I used ‘Kaleidoscope’ first and coloured the outside edges, then I used the ‘Candy Apple’ shade to colour in the centre of the lips. I used my Kryolan lip brush to feather the edges of the glosses together. Check out my YouTube Channel for creative makeup looks: www.youtube.com/smiles2310
Check out these lips I created!
I wanted to create some plump over the top lips but without them looking like the model has had fillers.
One key factor when emphasising the lips with Lipliner is make sure the corners meet.
For this particular look, I found it worked best by drawing the top line above the natural lip line, and making this the furthest point at the corners (by a millimetre).
Then drawing the bottom lip line in a very slight curve at the corners, to tuck in nicely underneath.
If you were to draw the bottom lip line outwards to be the furthest point, it would make your model appear like she was falsely smiling - a bit too clown like.
I chose to white out the face, to make the lips the focal point.
