older woman with fuller looking lips

As we age, we lose collagen, which can mean our lips become thinner and less plump. But you don’t have to spend your golden years looking wistfully into the mirror and dreaming of the past. A few little makeup tricks for mature skin from celeb makeup artist Cassie Lomas will show you how to work your way back to pout perfection. Follow these four simple steps to combat the signs of ageing and feel incredible. 

Correct

Using B. Pro Lip Corrector, line your lips to create a barrier that stops your lipstick feathering and ensures a neat finish. Feathering tends to happen when your lips are dry, so apply balm in the mornings and before bed to keep your lips supple and hydrated.

Shape

Shaping your lips will help to highlight your Cupid’s bow and give your pout a plumper finish. We recommend the B. Lip Liner in Nude, a soft, creamy pencil with great colour payoff. Use light, feathery strokes slightly wide of your lip line, to help create the illusion of a plumper pout.

Colour

Sweep on B. Cassie Lomas Matte Liquid Lipstick in All About Me, a neutral shade that will make your lips look naturally larger. The lipstick has a luxurious, velvety feel and is also a liquid, which means you won’t need to keep reapplying it – once it dries, it won’t move.

Shine

Liquid lipsticks are great for laying down a base of colour, but you want to add shine to accentuate your pout. Apply B. Lipstick in Baby Boo on top, to create visual fullness by picking up the light and making the colour pop.
