The world has gone crazy for the Kylie Jenner lip, in fact, the lip liner she uses to do the look - Soar by MAC is now sold out worldwide, or so I have read anyway. The look where you can transform your average looking, normal, lip shape into an amazing looking, exaggerated pout. Why would you want to do this I hear you ask? Well, I didn't really, until I read that the lipstick Kylie Jenner uses to create her mega lip look is MAC Twig, a lipstick which I've loved for a long time now so I decided to give the look a go today and it was actually kind of fun to do I have to admit! My lips aren't thin or anything but I would love if they were a bit bigger, I'd never use any kind of cosmetic surgery on them though so I love that you can enhance your natural features and even transform them completely if you want just by using makeup.
I started by outlining my lips beyond my lip line with Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob which I think is a pretty good dupe for MAC's Soar. I only outlined just on the outside of my lip line though as I didn't want to go overboard and end up looking like a clown. I then filled in the whole of my lips with the lip liner to make them all one colour to match the outline. Then I covered all of the lip liner with MAC's Twig lipstick - it really was as simply as that. I haven't perfected the look by any means, this was just a first go but I have to say I did love it! I don't know how Kylie Jenner manages to blend the liner with her natural lips but I'll figure that out in time, it's not noticeable in reality though, just in the pictures... which of course it had to be when I want to show them on my blog, thanks camera!
I think I'll be adding the Kylie Jenner lip to my makeup routine, although probably not for an everyday look. It's a great one for when I'm out and about with the other half, going to dinner and out with the girls of an evening. I think exaggerating my lips like this did change my face a lot, the same way in which darkening and elongating my eyebrows does so yay for that, I love looking so different and all just because of makeup.
Are you a fan of the exaggerated lip look?
