So you’ve got an especially well-endowed set of lips? Most women would be panting with jealousy, as there are bajillions (seriously, bajillions) of products designed to make your lips appear larger than they really are.
However, let’s say that you aren’t comfortable with your lip size, and possibly for certain occasions, would like to minimize their appearance rather than highlight them.
Glinda is here for you.
I’ve done a bit of research for you so that you don’t have to wade through articles that tell you to commit to an exercise routine for your lips so that you can get rid of their extra fat. Yes, someone actually DID write that.
Anyhoo, for those times when you would rather your lips not take so much of the spotlight, here are some tips:
1) Use matte colors, no shine.
2) Try applying foundation on your lips before lip color application. This can help reduce their outline a little bit.
3) Soft neutral colors rather than dark or intense ones.
5) Highlight another part of your face to draw some attention away from the lips, but don’t overdo it. It’s a fine line, to be sure.
There seems to be some disagreement about the use of a lip liner, and I myself am torn. Usually a lip liner is used to make lips larger, but I could see that it could help define a smaller lip when using the foundation trick.
