Blurred Lips Are The Sneakiest Makeup Trick For Faking A Kylie Jenner Level Pout
Because fillers definitely aren't for everyone.
If that's you then never fear as there's loads of ways to fake bigger lips - starting with spring's hottest lipstick trend: blurred lips.
As a subtle ombre applied to unlined lips, it not only contours but helps to create the illusion of the fuller pout you could achieve using artificial fillers.
Sneaky but effective, the look is also super easy to do and all you'll need to nail it is a neutral lipstick or concealer and a bolder shade of lippy to blend with.
Because you want a blurred edge to the lip to make it appear larger and more rounded, steer clear of lip liner as this will create to much definition.
Starting with your concealer or neutral lipstick, pat colour around the edge of the whole lip going over the natural line and blending into your complexion. You don't need to bring the colour all the way to the centre of the lips and just need a rough line about a centimetre in width both inside and outside the natural line.
Then, using your bolder lipstick, use a brush to apply colour to the area at the centre of your lips with no colour on. Take it about two thirds of the way out towards the edge of the lip and then use a brush to gently blend the colour into the neutral using a patting motion. Et VOILA, that's how simple this really is.
