Lip make-up advice for small, thin lips


> Colours to adopt
When choosing a lipstick, go for light colours that reflect the light and create a volumising effect. When it comes to gloss, a pearly gloss is ideal for giving the appearance of more volume.
> Colours to avoid
Dark colours which will make your lips look even thinner than they are.
> Expert advice
A lip plumper is a must-have for beautiful lips. It contains ingredients that naturally provide lips with volume and, on top of that, it increases the staying power of lipstick or gloss. Apply every morning for lips that are (almost) as plumped up as Angelina's!

Extra tip: use a lip pencil to cheat a little; Recreate a new lip line outside your natural lip line, going no further than 3mm out. Draw the line slowly and gradually until you obtain a precise line. Choose a shade that's the same as the shade of your lipstick. Then, finish off by applying a touch of gloss to the centre of your lips.
