Tips For Beautiful And Sexy Lips

Jan 19, 2008
No matter what the ethnicity, her lips often define a woman's sex appeal. The size and shape of the lips can label a woman as "hot" or "not". Unfortunately, not all women are born with voluptuous and perfectly shaped kissers. Some try to enhance their petite lips with collagen using surgical procedures. Others may purchase lip-enhancing makeup that promise to plump up and add character to the lips. But the bad news is that, these methods, tried and true, may require more money or time than you may have bargained for. The good news is that you can employ these sexy lip tips at home with the products that you probably already own to enjoy sexy and fuller lips.

· To make your lips appear fuller: It is best to line your lips with a neutral colored pencil to create a fuller lip. Be careful not to draw outside of your lip's natural line, but rather right on top of it. This will prevent you from wearing the "clown look". After you have lined your lips, apply your lip color, then add a high shine lip gloss. If you prefer not to wear gloss, use a high shine lip color. Lip-glosses add that pouty look that so many women desire. You may also try this tip: line your bottom lip with a liner about 2 shades darker than the color of your chosen lip-gloss. Try a plumping lip-gloss. They work pretty well. Choose a shade that is complimentary to your lipstick shade.

· To Even out Crooked Lips: First, coat your lips in face foundation, then lightly powder. Even out the thinnest lip with a liner that is the same color as your lip color. After balancing out the lips, even out the powder and liner with a softening sponge to make the look more natural. If you want a more pouty look, use a darker pencil and add a line just slightly underneath your bottom lip. Careful with this, the trick is to blend it so that you don't get that clown effect.

· For Dry or Chapped Lips: A tried and true method for dry and chapped lips is to apply a natural shea butter lip balm each night. When you sleep at night, you are sure to retain some of that moisture and lock it in before you wake up to apply your make up. It is important though, to use a lip balm underneath your lip color or gloss in order to maintain that gloss throughout the day. Aloe Vera gel and vitamin E oils are great for coating your lips, as well. Use a lip exfoliator once a week to ward off cracked dry lips, even if you don't suffer from this problem. Sally Hansen makes a great lip exfolliant.

· To shape your lips: Where your lips need definition, cover your lip line with face foundation. Follow up with a powder. If your lips lack the V formation, draw a V at the middle portion of your lips. Apply lip color, just beneath your liner. Lastly apply your gloss, (if desired). Remember, a darker liner creates more of a pouty look.

·Moist or Matte: Matte lipsticks tend to have more staying powder and look great as day wear. Moist/glossy looks top off that evening look sensationally. But what you wear depends greatly on how long you need your color to last and how much definition you need added to your lips. (Glosses add more depth to lips, but require more applications) There really are no rules here. Remember, no matter which choice you make, less is still more.

Your lips can be sexy even if you weren't born with Angelina Jolie's package. Work with what God gave you and enhance your own kissers. Take care of your lips and treat them with love by keeping them hydrated and moisturized, and your lips will thank you for it!
