HOW TO CONTOUR LIPS

This 3D lip look packs the same sexy punch of a classic nude lip, but layers it with interesting, of-the-moment edge thanks to a special-effect play with color. And, though it looks hard-to-do, it’s actually surprisingly simple once you get the step-by-step breakdown. Best of all, it’s done entirely in long-lasting lipstick and liner formulas, so your contoured lip look will stay on all night, no worries!

HERE'S HOW TO GET THE CONTOURED LIPS LOOK

  1. HOW TO CONTOUR LIPS STEP 1: OUTLINE EDGES

    Outline lips with a warm brown lip liner, lightly buffing the edges so that the line is soft and diffused, not hard-edged.

  2. HOW TO CONTOUR LIPS STEP 2: START WITH DARK PINK

    Apply dark pink lipstick all over lips, concentrating color at the outer corners of the upper and lower lips. Go light on this color in the center of lips.

  3. HOW TO CONTOUR LIPS STEP 3: FINISH WITH LIGHT PINK

    Apply a light pink lipstick in the center of lips. Lightly diffuse the edges with a makeup sponge so that there’s no line of demarcation.
