    • Line lips with Artistry™ Automatic LipLiner Pencil. Start by outlining the side-by-side arched curves in the center top lip (the Cupid’s bow) and the center of the lower lip. Complete the line by starting at the outer corner of the upper lip and etch inwards toward the Cupid’s Bow. Repeat on the bottom lip.
    • Use a lip brush (or your ring finger) to blend and soften the pencil inward and onto the lip itself.
    • Apply lip color: start at the outer corner of the lip and work toward the center.

Get full lips

To get fuller-looking lips, every time, reverse the usual order of application.

  • Apply Artistry™ Lip Gloss to your lips
  • Follow with a coordinating lipstick
  • Applying the lipstick over the gloss creates an added illusion of fullness

Thin Lips Trick

For even more full effects — without injections? Begin with liner.

    • Choose a shade of Artistry Automatic LipLiner Pencil close to your own lip shade or a little lighter. (avoid darker shades of LipLiner and Lipstick as they will make lips look thinner and smaller.)
    • Line the entire lip, just outside the natural lip line.
    • Then follow the “Get Full Lips” steps: apply gloss, followed by lipstick.

Turn Up a Downturned Lip

Create a more lifted look with liner placement and light, bright shades.

  • Use Artistry Automatic LipLiner Pencil to line lips; emphasize the Cupid’s Bow and the center of the lower lip line. Avoid following the natural droop of the mouth; stop lining before reaching the corners of the mouth.
  • Fill in lips with a bright shade of Artistry Signature Color Lipstick or Artistry Signature Color Sheer Lipstick. Bright shades help draw attention to the center of the mouth.
