Treat Lips Injuries
In case of an injury the lips begin to swell and appear bigger. These lip injury can occur due to anything from a punch in the face to your lip biting habits and in some cases even from a fall. But if these injuries are not taken care of properly at that time then they tend to leave a permanent mark or a permanent damage. So one must take care of these injuries as soon as possible if the injuries are large like separated from the middle then immediately see a doctor and if the injuries are minor like some cuts or bruised a little; then rub some ice on it.
Makeup to make lips smaller
Although it is very hard to get smaller lips but what we can do is we can make our lips appear smaller with the help of some make up and some other techniques which can help people to notice you but not your lips if you don’t want them to. In this step I will help you to make your lips appear more attractive which in turn will help you look more beautiful and sexy than you already are.
Applying foundation can help as it will tone down the bright color of your lips that comes naturally and will also blur the edges of your lips. The more blurry the lips the better as it will prevent any other person from knowing where you lip line begins and hence making your lip appear smaller. In order for this to work properly you must use a cosmetic sponge and take a little foundation. Apply it to your lips and then let this foundation to be completely dried before making use of any complementary makeup on the lips.
Lip concealer will help you to conceal your lips more naturally. First you have to select a lip concealer that matches the color of your skin on lips. With care fill out a slender line of concealer to the upper line of your top lip and the same way apply it to the bottom edge of your lower lip. With the application of narrow sponge or if you don’t have that than you may use your fingers. Mix the concealer utilizing a to and fro movement to ensure that the edges of your lips properly merge in with your skin properly and appear more natural. Without a doubt, the concealer will take care of an integral part of your lip pretty much inside the genuine lip line and will make your lip appear smaller.
If you don’t want to makeup lips with a concealer than you may use lip liner for giving a smaller shape to the lips. Use a pale, neutral color and outline a millimeter down the actual lips line. Pick a color that is couple of shades darker than your natural skin color, but never draw a very dark line because this may form an illusion of bigger lips. Apply this lip liner of your chosen color just 1 mm from the genuine lip line and do not make it obvious. I recommend concealer as it seems more natural than a lip liner, but if you prefer lip liner than be subtle with it.
A proper lipstick can help in forming an illusion and thus get smaller lips on your face. So when you choose a lipstick you must choose a color which is light and which would not draw more attention to your lips. One can choose a color like light pink or brown just make sure that it is just some tones off your genuine tone of lips. Avoid using lipstick shades that are pearlier, glossy or shiny as get your lips to look even bigger. Instead try a lipstick which has a matte or creamy texture like finishing. And one more thing never use lip gloss, but if you do want to use, then only apply it over the middle part and not the entire lips. And for better result you might want to utilize this lipstick making use of a lip brush and not directly as it could smear the other product.
There has been quite a debate on whether a lip exercise can actually help to make lips smaller, but some say they can so we might as well try it. These are some simple exercises like trying a tongue twister over and over again to tone your lips. Second putting your lower lip above your upper lip and give a wide smile without the upper lip falling from lower lip and the third would be to force yourself to smile while pulling the corners of your mouth down. Repeat these exercises 10 times daily to get smaller lips naturally. You may not see the result until couple of months and when you do it will be very little for you to notice but someone else might notice it but it is better than nothing I guess.
