Kylie Jenner - Queen of the Selfies
Seriously though, she should write a book on how to look that amazing in a picture, seeshhhh! Everybody everywhere knows the youngest of the Kardashians / Jenners for her statement pout so I'm here to show you how I achieve my version of the 'Kylie Jenner' lip.
Most people tend to skip the lip liner step when applying lip products, slap on a bitta lipstick and it'll be fine (I was of that opinion until earlier this year too)... but that is pretty much the most important step in recreating Kylie's killer lips. Apparently she hasn't had any fillers and simply overdraws her lip line to make her lips appear larger (I'm not so sure). She's also revealed that she uses only lip liners - no lipstick.
But I have adapted Kylie's routine to suit my own lips and my routine goes as follows:
- Line the lips with a darker lip pencil than your lipstick (mine is 'Stripdown' from MAC - Kylie uses this liner or 'Soar' for her pinker tone).
- Fill in the lips with your chosen lipstick (mine is 'Myth' from MAC).
- Go back in with your lip pencil and begin to blend the lip pencil into the lipstick.
I tend to not overdraw my lip line - I look straight up stupid when I do - so I find that the two toned nude effect works best for me! What a difference a lip pencil makes.
Want to try out the look without committing yourself to the MAC prices? Just pop down to your nearest drug store and try something out in similar tones - go on, give it a whirl! :P
Are you a fan of the 'Kylie' lip?
