--- SMALL LIPS ---


► Make the most out of your small lips by using light to mid-tone shades with an added pearly shimmer.

► Start by highlighting the cupid's bow (that little dip in the centre of your upper lip) and at the centre of your lower lip with a bit of highlight shimmer to pick up some light. After, with a feathering motion, apply a light lip colour that glows.

► Avoid applying very dark shades or matte formulas as they will make your lips to recede.

► You can add a bit of intensity too by using a mid-tone shimmery lipstick and then adding some sparkling lipgloss to the centre of your lower lip, this will make create the illusion of been thicker or plumped.

► If you really love reds or deeper hues, go for sheer lipsticks, glosses or tinted balms under those colours.
