The technique has been used on celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber.
If you've been wanting to achieve the look of fuller lips while maintaining the shape of your natural lips, this hack might be worth a try. Yes, it's a lip lining hack, but hear us out—this one doesn't give the lips an obviously over-lined look. It's actually a technique made famous by celebrity makeup artist Mary Phillips, who has done makeup looks for stars like Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber.
In a viral TikTok, Phillips (@makeupbymaryphillips) walks us through her technique, explaining the details of the look. The clip has gained over a 3.3 million views, with hundreds of users posting their own renditions of the technique.
One user, Dacey Cash (@daceycash), posted her go at the look, and ended up loving her results. "It adds so much vertical fullness to the lip," she said in the clip.
How to Get The Look
For Mary Phillip's lip lining technique, make sure your lip liner is nice and sharp—this will ensure ultimate precision. Begin by lining the outer corners of your upper and lower lips, following the natural lip line. Then, line the center of your lips, emphasizing the outline of the cupid's bow and lower lip. Take a fluffy makeup brush and blend out the liner to smooth out any harsh lines. Use concealer to clean up any product that may have landed outside of the lips. Finally, apply your favorite lipstick, oil or gloss, and voila: fuller lips.
