Little white lies every now and then never hurt anyone, especially when it’s just about makeup. For example, have you ever cheated with your lip liner by using it to make your pout look bigger? While it’s not something you should do every day, a little fudging on occasion can make your lips look fuller and much more glamorous. Here’s how.

According to The Beauty Department, you should start with a nude lip liner that’s a shade or two darker than the natural color of your lips. Use it to trace your pout – but instead of going right over the line, make your marks slightly outside where your natural lip outline is. It should still touch your lip line, but you can feel free to make your cupid’s bow a little more pronounced by slightly exaggerating the arches.

When you’re satisfied with the shape, use the liner to fill in the rest of your lips, then top with the colorful lipstick or lip gloss of your choice. If you choose lipstick, you can add even more volume by applying a dab of gloss on the center of your bottom lip. This will create dimension that will make your lips downright kissable!

Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
