Burning Question: How do you make lips look fuller? 

1. "Lightly buff the edges of the natural lip line with concealer to soften the shape," explains make-up artist Lynsey Alexander.

2. Slightly cheat the size of your lips with a natural-coloured lip liner using tiny circular movements rather than straight lines. "Pay particular attention to the top lip, which naturally tends to be smaller than the bottom, and then fill in the lips completely with a lip pencil similar to your chosen lipstick," says Alexander.

3. Finish by applying a layer of lipstick straight from the bullet rather than using a brush.


Concealer: Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage, Dhs152, offers great coverage.
Lip Liner: Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Cheat lip liners, Dhs90, are loved by editors and make-up artists for a reason. The formula is like nothing we've ever tried, and it lasts.
Lipstick: For strong pigment and long-lasting lipstick that won’t dry your lips out, look no further than L’Oreal Paris Perfection Colour Riche Lipstick, Dhs40.
