Tools: pink-hued gloss or a natural shade lipstick, nude lip-liner, concealer, lip plumper. Just because your lip-color is barely there, doesn’t mean your lips have to be. Ask Jennifer Lopez, who has led the charge of nude-colored lips on the red carpet in the last few years. A lip plumper is the key to a full, natural pout. Apply it like a lip balm and let it sit for a few seconds before moving on to a concealer. Dot a makeup sponge with a lightweight concealer that closely matches your skin tone, and buff both top and bottom lips as if you were dotting your face with a powder. This will lock in the natural color you're about to apply. Next, apply a nude lip-liner around the edges of your lips to create definition. Make sure the point is sharp so the line you draw is thin and exact. (You want to avoid a Kim Mathers thick liner look at all costs!) Finally, apply a nude or “natural” colored lipstick that matches the shade of your own lips. For a shinier look, choose use a clear gloss with a hint of pink.
