It seems like every actress I work with feels her lips aren't full enough. Rather than argue, I use this little technique to give any lip line a crisp, fuller look.
Start off with a touch of lip balm -- nothing greasy, just a waxy balm that will fill in crevices and have staying power.
Dab concealer along the lip line and feather up and out. See how much more prominent your lips appear already?
Now we're going to amp up the shape by lining along the lip line, or just slightly outside it, with a fleshy pink lip pencil. Don't be greedy; a little goes a long way. It's a fine line -- don't cross it (though tempting). Once you have the shape, fill in the entire lip. The pencil has more staying power because it's waxier than lipsticks and gloss.
Choose a shiny lipstick or, even better, a gloss. You want a shade that's neither too light nor too dark. I like to fill in the entire lip using a gloss with shimmer (which gives the most light-catching bang for your buck). Shiny, crisp lips always have a fuller appearance!
Product recommendations: I heart Rimmel's Tiramisu lip pencil for a good, fleshy base and Dior's Addict Ultra Gloss in Apricot Cloche for a medium-toned gloss.
This is a great tip for someone like Demi Moore.
