Tips and Tricks for Down-Turned Lips

Having an issue with down-turned lip lines? Let’s see if we can work a little makeup “magic” to help camouflage, or at least deter that feature from being a head-lining act. What do you say?

Having down-turned lips and lip-lines can occur at any age, and may be the beautiful way God created you, so there’s nothing to feel badly about. But, we do have a few tools in our kit, so to speak, to help our down-turned lips not look like a big frown when we’re wanting to wear bright lipsticks out on the town.

So, let’s go!

We’ll begin with our prep:

Step 1 – Moisturize those gorgeous lips! I’m using Avon’s Moisture Therapy Lip Treatment. It’s perfect to keep my lips moist without being greasy, so I can wear it underneath my lipstick.

Step 2 – You’ll want to have some liquid concealer, preferably with a wand. I’m using Avon’s Cashmere Complexion Longwear Concealer in Cheesecake. This has a soft focus matte finish, and is also water resistant.

Step 3 – Simply draw upward with your concealer wand along the outside corner of your lips. We’re looking to help cancel out that downward look of our natural lip line.

Step 4 – Use a slightly damp makeup sponge to blend. I already had on my foundation, so this is done atop your already-in-place foundation makeup. You can set this with powder after application.

Next, let’s apply our lip color products:

Avon Lipsticks

Step 1 – You’ll need your favorite lip lining pencil. For this look, I’m using Avon’s Ultra Luxury Lip Liner in Currant.

Step 2 – And this is where some of the magic comes in. I am lining my lips all the way to the (inner) corners, but rather than following my natural lip line to the outermost corner, I am going to move inward a bit, and not stay right on my natural outer lip line (in the corner areas – top and bottom). If I were to follow my natural lip line to the outer edges, my lips would appear to be even more drastically down-turned, kind of like a clown’s frown. It takes a little bit of practice to get used to not lining right on the outer ridge of your natural lip line, but you’ll get it! And I always like to fill in my lips with my liner. It helps with color depth and a longer wearing lipstick.

Step 3 – Choose your favorite lipstick! You do not have to be afraid of going dark and dramatic now. We’re keeping those lips looking more upturned now. I’m going all out wearing Avon’s True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Candy Red.

Step 4 – Apply your lipstick within the lines of your lipliner. Be careful at the corners not to go all the way to the very outer corner area.

And you’re ready to go! Woo Hoo! Have fun!

But before I let you go, I’ll share my very favorite and top, top, top #1 tip to help down-turned lips: S-M-I-L-E!!

That works every time!

Till next time, stay fabulous, follow your joy, and always smile!
