Lip Contour Tutorial

When perusing Instagram and your favorite red carpet photos, it might seem like everyone else has been blessed with incredibly pointy Cupid's bows and strong lip lines that make every lipstick look perfectly painted on. But the cat's out of the bag, thanks to tutorials by beauty stars like Nikkie and Huda Kattan — we now know it takes strategically placed concealers, liners, glosses, and sticks to create that pouty effect.

But if, like me, the idea of applying more than two products on your lips seems totally daunting and impossible when you have just minutes to get out of the house and elicits an "I'd rather sleep than have an enviable pout, thanks," we have the easy DIY you've been waiting for.
