Welcome to the all-new!

There are generally four kinds of lip shapes. Your pout may fall under one category or be a mix of two. Check out this helpful illustration I got from Max Factor UK’s Facebook page:


1. Curved

Makeup tips: All you need a little more defining of your lip shape. Using a lip liner in a shade that’s lighter than your lipstick, outline your lips. Don’t be afraid to go slightly outside the lines. Fill it in with a bold lipstick, starting over the line your just drew. Gloss is optional.

2. Strong

Makeup tips: You and your lucky Angelina Jolie-esque lips! You don’t even need a lip liner. Just apply a strong lip tint or bold lipstick color then top it off with gloss for a seductive finish.

3. Thin

Makeup tips: Make lip liner your best friend. For fuller lips, outline using a dark lip liner. Fill in your lips using a dark shade (such as wine or ruby red), starting over the lip line and onto the inner part of the lips. Blend a lighter shade of lippie in the same color family onto the inner part of the lips. Top with gloss. The two-toned color (not exactly ombre) will give the illusion of fuller lips.

4. Full

Makeup tips: Define the bow edges with a lip liner, and then fill in your lips with a strong lip color.
