The Kylie Jenner lip, Part Two...

After the success of my first Kylie Jenner lip post I thought I'd do a part two back for you, this time her bold dark lip. (For those of you who haven't seen my original post, please click here!) I know her make up style isn't for everyone but it's one of THE most talked about things of 2014, and is still popular two months into 2015. I've heard that Miss Jenner does most of her make up herself, hence all of those selfies on Instagram. I've gone for a slightly toned down version of her round full lips to make this slightly more wearable although I did feel like I looked a tad Miranda Sings.

I'm still not quite sure how she manages to create such a 'natural' full looking lip, as it took me ages to try and perfect this one, and I still couldn't quite create the same effect! I used three main products for these lips and then used eye-shadows and powders to create more depth. First I started off by really over lining my lip shape as you want them to seem as big as possible, I used MAC Whirl to do this. To create the dark plum colour I used a combination of the Laura Mercier lip stain in Mulberry, and Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in the shade Black Cherry. Using a lip brush will give you much more control of the product and will stop you from smudging your lips, I used the Real Techniques lip brush. As you can see in the photo above I used the back of my hand as a palette to mix the two colours together and I even put a swipe of black eyeliner on there to create more definition in the corners of my mouth. This is not an easy look to do and will take a fair amount of practice, I would recommend for you beginners to start gradually lining your lips and then begin to build up the lip colour. I finished off the look by using the enhance shade in my Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette to add an authentic 90s look,using a shimmer/lighter product in the centre of your lips will also make them look fuller.

  2. This looks amazing but this maybe a look for the experts - over lining can go so wrong when I try it on myself
