I have a lip liner (from mom’s overstock train case) but I only touched it once. I traced my lips like a kid working on her coloring book, filled the shape in with a matching lipstick. Guess what! I looked like a duck with over-sized chappy lips. Eversince then I resorted to using lipstick, just that. I want my pout sharp and sexy just like the ones in magazines. What should I do to get sexy lips like the one in the photo above?

Dear Never Been Kissed,
Well we’re not surprised. You are not the only one. Though there are lots of tutorials online and beauty experts seem to say the same tips over and over again, girls are still having a hard time creating a perfectly luscious pout. Take our advice:
1) Thin lips or full lips? By knowing this basic info, you’re narrowing down the list of shades that fit you.
For thin lips, try light but not bright shades like ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Bon Bon and Micro Teaberry and anything that shimmers like ELES Liquid Lustre Lip Gloss. For extra plump lips, use ELES LipTox.
For full lips, try vivid red and earth shades like ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Red and Micro Melon.
2) Innocent or Seductive? Know the personality you wish to project on a particular date or event.
For innocent look, try anything pinkish like ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Tickled Pink and Micro Flamingo, ELES Super Gloss in Super Candy or ELES LipTox in Precious.
For seductive look, deep red would be perfect! Try ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Red and Micro Melon and top with ELES Super Gloss in Pomegranate.
3) Fail safe shade – go NEUTRAL.
For job interviews / office look, try ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Sachet and Bronze,
For first date and ‘Meet the parents’ date, try ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Flamingo and Micro Blush,
