Lipstick tricks for your perfect pout, Kylie Jenner style

While I wouldn’t call myself an expert on creating the perfect Kylie Jenner lip, I am a huge fan and am always striving for the perfect lip shade and shape. Frequent trips to the various beauty departments and stores have provided me with a couple little tricks that help me create a ‘perfect pout.’

Smooth as velvet
One big thing for me, especially during the winter, is making sure my lips are soft and smoothe. I like to exfoliate my lips whenever I do my weekly face masks. I use the popcorn flavored lip scrub from Lush, which is edible. So you rub your lips with the scrub and then you can lick it off. I know others who simply scrub their lips with a washcloth in the shower, or if you have a Clarisonic just brush it on your mouth as well. Then I always follow it up with lip balm or vaseline if my lips are really chapped.

Prepping for greatness
When it comes time to putting on my makeup, the first thing I do it put on lip balm. If you are wearing a matte lipstick this is even more important because it can dry your lips out more end up looking cracked. Then I extend my foundation coverage to my mouth. I try to keep it light, too much can dry out your lips. But still make sure to keep a light layer over the entire lip. Once I look like a complete creep or a ghost, then I put on my lipstick.

Aiming cupid’s bow
The biggest lipstick game changer for me was learning how to best apply to my cupid’s bow. Once a Sephora expert showed me to apply the lipstick or lip liner around the ledge of the cupid’s bow only but keep to the actual lip for the rest I finally became happy with my lip game.
