5 Ways to Achieve a Flirty Pout

Who doesn’t love full, pouty lips that are so innocently seductive? I, myself am not blessed with a luscious pout that could rival Angelina Jolie’s. However, here are some of my well-loved nifty tips and tricks that will assist you with attaining the Best Kissers on Earth.

1.MOISTURISE

Dry, chapped lips aren’t your best friend. Apart from the fact that the flakey, cracked skin is plain uncomfortable and not visually pleasing, but anything that you apply on top will look less than optimal. Lipstick and lipgloss will not apply smoothly. To deeply moisturize and remove pesky flakes, I love to coat the lips with a thick layer of Lucas Paw Paw Ointment. Wait for 30 minutes before firmly wiping your lips with a warm washcloth. Ta-da! Hydrated, silky lips.

2. AVOID DARKS & MATTES

Just like your LBD makes you look 2 sizes slimmer, dark lipstick gives your lips the same effect. Steer clear of colours like deep burgundy, violet and brown. Actually, nobody should wear brown. Ever. Matte colours also automatically reduce volume, look dry and can leave your lips looking small and flat. Shades that you should look for include any light to medium hues in any intensity. If you don’t like a glossy or moist finish, you can opt for satin finish lipsticks that have subtle shimmer particles to add luminosity and amp up the volume. Shimmering lipgloss is perfect for extra oomph. If dark, sultry shades really are your thing, you can mix the product with a balm or gloss, leaving you a sheer tint that will keep you and your kissers happy. Win.

3. LIPLINER

A nude, one-colour-suits-all lipliner, such as M.A.C.’s Lip Liner in Spice is brilliant for enhancing and defining your pout’s shape, intensifying your lipcolour, as well as acting as a smooth base to apply your lipstick. Ensure you cover the lips completely with the lipliner, to avoid that that dreaded ‘ring around the mouth’ when the lipstick wears off. Ensure that you apply on the actual lipline. Drawing on lipliner beyond the border of your actual lips doesn’t fool anyone into believing that your lips have naturally doubled in size overnight. Plus, when you wear lipstick on top, you’ll have plenty of smudging, bleeding and feathering of the product, leaving you as sexy looking as The Joker from The Dark Knight.

4. HIGHLIGHT, HIGHLIGHT, HIGHLIGHT!

Add a shimmering white highlight to your cupid’s bow. Use a powder highlighter like M.A.C.’s Pigment in Vanilla or a liquid alternative like Benefit’s High Beam. This automatically draws light to the area, helping to add faux volume instantly. You can also dab a tiny amount on the middle part of the bottom lip to add the illusion of fullness. Don’t forget to blend it in.

5. FORGET COLLAGEN INJECTIONS, EXERCISE IS KEY.

Current research shows that if you regularly pout your lips (kissing action) in the mirror on a daily basis, the muscle around your lips, namely Obicularis Oris, increases in size and will naturally strengthen and amplify your pout over time. Recommended dosage of pouting exercise: 10 repetitions, 3 sets, 5 second holds, every morning and night for 2 months.

Just kidding. Only the first 4 tips will work on Earth.

Have a pout-tastic day!
