It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian prefers an oversized nude pout. And the social media star took to her app to show fans the exact products it takes to create her signature look — how-to on faking fuller lips, included! Keep reading for Kim’s top lip tips.
Kim Kardashian, 35, is about as well known for her oversized lips as she is for her use of contouring, so it makes perfect sense that in her latest beauty how-to she’s combining the two for one super enhanced look. With makeup artist and BFF Mario Dedivanovic explaining his step-by-step secrets as he gives Kim the finishing touch to her makeup look, you can fake fuller lips, too, even if you don’t have a cosmetic surgeon on speed dial.
1) To start creating fuller lips, Mario said he starts with the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Pencil in Iconic Nude, lining the bottom lip from the outer corner in, and then repeating with Kim’s upper lip.
2) While Kim prefers a creamy lip, Mario says if you prefer a matte lipstick then continue working with your lip pencil to completely fill your lips in. For Kim’s signature look, after outlining her lips, Mario applies Tom Ford Lip Color in Sable Smoke. To make it look more matte, Mario presses a tissue to Kim’s lips to take away the shine.
