How to Get Instagram-Ready Lips
Pics or it didn't happen.
Whether you're a glam makeup devotee or are just partial to a statement pout, we've partnered with Burberry to help you get your lips photo ready. Great makeup deserves to be seen and Instagram is the perfect platform for showing off an edgy lip look.
Not sure which lippie to post on your feed? Burberry has you covered with the launch of Liquid Lip Velvet. This brand new bold lip colour boasts an innovative formula that gives your lips intense colour, a conditioned, lightweight feel, and eight hours of wear. The secret to this gorgeous lip colour is the light, fluffy texture. You'll get the matte cream look you love without the dryness, cracking, or flaking that comes with other formulas.
3 Steps to Statement Lips
1. Use a lip scrub
No matter what your lipstick style, you can't take a great selfie with flaky, dry lips. Grab a sugar scrub and gently buff away any flakes.
2. Prep with lip balm
Once your lips are smooth, a conditioning balm will lock in moisture and help your lip colour stay put.
3. Contour and colour
Faking fuller lips with shadow and colour is easier than you think...Begin by lining the outer edges of the lips with a lip liner that's a similar colour to your Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet shade of choice—we love Burberry Lip Definer Lip Shaping Pencil. Carefully line your lips with the point of the pencil, then, gently smudge the colour inwards with your fingertips.
Next sweep Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet all over the lips and then take a slightly lighter shade and apply it to just the centre of the lips. To finish, use a brush and blend the lighter shade out towards the edges of the lips for a subtle ombré effect.
So, how does this technique work? It's a simple play on shade and light. Defining the outsides of your lips with a darker colour has a minimizing effect, allowing the lighter center of your lips to look more pillowy.
Now, you're all set to take your best selfie yet.
