How To: Fabulously Full Lips with NYX Professional Makeup

Matching your liner to your lip colour is the ultimate shortcut to full, fabulous lip looks – and the gorgeous {@xthuyle} (Thuy Le) has made this easy with an array of products from NYX Professional Makeup. Follow these simple steps to recreate her sumptuous, rich berry-rouge lip look…

Before you turn your attention to the main event, ensure you’ve created a flawless base with NYX Professional Makeup’s {Total Control Drop Foundation}. After this, sculpt out some supermodel cheekbones using {Highlight & Contour Pro Palette} and achieve Thuy Le’s signature gleam by picking up the highest points of your face with the beautiful {Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette}.

Once you’ve aced your base, create immaculate arches with the {Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade} (Thuy Le is wearing ‘Black’) then enhance your eyes with the {Ultimate Shadow Palette – Smokey}. This stars no less than 16 stay-put satin shades for endless looks – but to channel your inner Thuy Le, use the burgundy hues to add depth and definition, before defining the cut-crease with bronze tones and lining the eyes with {Epic Ink Liner}.

When you’ve completed your eye artistry, it’s time for the star of the show: that timelessly alluring lip look. Line, define and sculpt your lips with {Suede Matte Lip Liner} in ‘Copenhagen’, drawing a fine line just outside your natural lip outline to create the illusion of increased fullness. Then, use the matching {Soft Matte Lip Cream} in ‘Copenhagen’ (it’s the perfect shade of rich berry red) to fill in lips – and pucker up, gorgeous!
