This M.A.C. video tutorial showed up in my inbox this morning and I'm loving it.
It's a quick, easy way to make it look like you have the fullest, most luscious lips in town -- and you probably already have the products to do the job in your makeup drawer.
Check it out after the jump!
My favorite secret is the one about highlighting the cupid's bow of your lip with a cream base. I would probably use a bit of undereye concealer there, which would be just a tiny bit lighter than your normal skin tone.
The concealer also helps keep your lip gloss from feathering in the cracks of your lips, which is helpful since you're not wearing lip pencil with this tutorial.
I also like the idea of using a slightly lighter color on your bottom lip than on your upper lip.
The most important tool in this tutorial is a lip brush. M.A.C.'s lip brush is $19.50. I invest in a couple of M.A.C. brushes each year. They're expensive, but they last for years and they really do make a difference in makeup application.
However, the makeup artists I work with at Salon Nfuse here in Nashville (who do the makeup of lots of celebs here) say that if you can't afford expensive makeup brushes, Sonia Kashuk's makeup brushes at Target are a great cheaper alternative. Good to know, right?
So what do you think of this video tutorial? Will you try it? I can't wait to!
