Hello everyone, my name is Joi, and I'm a Makeup Artist in New York. And today, I'm going to show you how to use highlighter above your lip to make your lips appear fuller. So, today, we're just going to use a little bit of concealer and we're also going to use our lip brush. So, what you want to do with this is pretty simple, you're just going to take your lighter colored concealer, dab it along the line of your lips and of course you'll do this after you have your lipstick already applied. "And turn this way for me", and I get a little bit more than what I wanted from there. So, I'm going to dab a little bit of it off, but what you'll do after you've got the right amount up there with just a little, a little thin line will do. You don't want to make it look you know, powdery; you don't want to have too much up there. But, you get your, your thin line close to your lips, in your lipstick as possible and then you just kind of blend it out. And you can use your lip brush or you can use a sponge and you just want to make sure that the line is soften. You never want any hard edges. So, I'm dabbing with my sponge a bit and that's also picking up some of that excess that I got on there and blending upward. And if you happen to get into your lipstick just a little bit, you can take your brush when you get finished and just kind of clean that up. So, I'm just going to take this and wipe it here, smooth out that lipstick, okay and dabbing the concealer. The point is you want to make the focus right above the lip to make it look a little bit fuller. You don't want a big white line up there showing. So, cleaning it up just a little bit here. So, I've got a little lipstick outside my line which is a no-no. So, we've got everything all cleaned up and if you're taking pictures or if you're on camera, you'll, you'll see just a little bit of a glow up here and it'll increase the fullness of your lips. So, I hope this works out for you all and thanks for watching. I'm Joi.
