The Spring Lip Trick You Haven't Tried Yet

When it comes to creating the perfect spring lip, there's more than shades of rorange to consider. (Although, if you're still searching, we can certainly help with that.) As Stacey Nishimoto demonstrates today over at Into The Gloss, this season is all about using your makeup to play with the shape of your kisser.
Turns out, you can contour your lips just as you would your eyes or cheekbones. Whether you're craving a fuller look or a bee-stung flush, the right products and techniques can totally transform your entire face. Case in point: Nishimoto demonstrates six completely different looks, and her lips really do appear to morph with each lipstick change. The Chocolate Cupid's Bow look creates a heart-shape. And when Nishimoto uses a fire-engine red to make a fuller pout, her lips appear to be impossibly pillowy. Whoever said that bright lipstick makes your mouth look smaller was obviously not up on her lip-liner game.
