If your full pout is top heavy, your task is to make them seem smaller. With the help of the lip pencil, fill the pout inside their actual line. Finish off with the pout put.

Or even simpler. Just opt for dark pout put, and the tone will do the trick and make the lip appear a bit smaller.

Is your pout bottom heavy? Such lip shapes are tricky. Apply one shade of pout put on both lips. Now look at your upper lip and find its centre. Ready? Now simply dab the centre with either creamy matte eyeshadow in a nude color or white pencil. Voila, thus the evenness and balance is achieved.

You can also achieve that desirable balance if you just apply pout put in a dark shade.

We all dream about cupid’s bow. But what if your pout is flat?

As for pout put shades, it is advisable to give your preference to lighter rather than darker ones if your lips are flat.

When outlining the lips, you can step over the edge for a fuller effect.

Pout put with frosty and shimmery textures can grant you more volume.

The combination of two pout put shades, like ombre, will provide more volume to your lips, as well. In this case, a darker pout put shade is supposed to frame a lighter shade which will be in the centre.

Thin Lips

If you have thin lips, it is better to avoid pout put in darker shades as they make your lips appear even thinner than they are. Go for lighter tones instead.

To make thin lips appear fuller, go over the edge when applying the lip liner. Then smudge the line a bit.
