If you love the fuller lip trend, then you can get a more voluminous pout just with a slick of lip liner! When lining your lips, go very slightly over your natural lip line using a matching shade to your preferred lipstick. This will give you a plumped-up pout without a needle in sight!

When you’re out to the early hours, the last thing you want is to top up your lipstick every hour if you’re eating & drinking. Make your lipstick long-lasting by filling in your lips with the matching lip liner before applying your lipstick. This will help keep the color on, and if it does fade, then you have the lip liner color as a back up!


Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution & Hot Lips lipsticks are shaped specifically with a square-tipped angle so you can apply straight from the bullet for a precise pout! If you want to go one step further, then a lipstick brush can help sharpen corners and perfectly angle your cupid’s bow.
