Step-by-Step: How to Contour Your Lips

Contouring your lips can make them look fuller and more defined. But what’s the best technique? Check out our step-by-step guide!

1. OUTLINE YOUR LIPS
Start by outlining the outer edges of your lips with a lip liner. Make sure you choose a colour that matches the lipstick you will use later.

2. EMPHASISE THEIR SHAPE
Use your lip liner to draw a V on your top lip. The end of the V should meet the middle of your lip. Then draw a vertical line in the middle of your bottom lip. Together they create a Y. This creates the illusion of fuller lips.

3. DAB ON LIPSTICK
Use a dabbing motion to apply lipstick over your entire lips. Make sure its well-blended with the lip liner to avoid strong contrasts.

4. FINISH WITH LIP GLOSS
Finish with a lip gloss in the same colour to tie the look together. Start by dabbing it on, then use a sweeping motion to even out the colour.

And there you have it – contoured lips with perfect definition!
