Arabic lips tutorial




I love the typical Arabic lip, nude-ish brown, slightly matte and big on volume! I only use two tools for this, a lipliner and a nude lippy but to really make it 'pop' you could always highlight your cupids bow and go around your lips with concealer. I dont have a very full top lip in comparison to the bottom one, so the lip liner really helps with that lol

BEFORE


AFTER




I have touched any of my pics up, I took pics in the bathroom and living room so the colour isn't the same in both pics lol The best example of the colour is in the tutorial pics. I didn't use flash in any of my piccies :]

I used a lipliner from N.Y.C, not sure what it's called but it's a lovely medium creamy brown, love it <3 I also used MAC innocence beware lippy.


Start off by outlning your lips, lightly go around the outside of your lip...


Big difference eh lol

It should look like that ^^ when you're done..


Then lay your lipliner on it's side and colour in your lips...


Keep the inside of your lips bare so when you've put the lippy on it'll add some dimension.


Go over your lips with the nude lippy one and then build up a couple of layers in the centre of your lips.


TADA! sorted :] Hope you liked!

I think I might have to try this. Both my bottom and top lip are fairly thin - I wonder if I could get this to work on me. x

It really does work. I can imagine with a red lip how dramatic it would look.

Omg!! Love it, but I just don't know how to use lipstick, my lips is kind of thick but small mouth length. So I end up like a geisha (only for the lip part) lol
