If you're obsessed with K-pop idol's heart-shaped smiles, you're not alone. Celebrities such as V, Jisso, and D.O. express their love for their fans in a unique way: with their attractive lips.
Heart-shaped lips are the new trend among K-beauty fans. The primary idea behind this type of lips is providing an all-over plumping effect focusing on the middle area.
It's essential to understand that every lip-type is beautiful. Lips determine the aesthetics of your face. That's the reason why it's necessary to learn how to boost its features with proper care and makeup. Besides, it's possible to naturally get the shape you want in your lips if you want them to look more attractive.
Heart-shaped lips have a prominent cupid's bow. Great examples of these types of lips are Korean idols Nayeon, Jaehyun, and Ha Sung Woon. You can notice how their upper lip has a pronounced dip in the middle and a heavier lower lip.
Exercises To Shape Lips Naturally
Besides makeup and proper care, it's possible to shape lips naturally by performing the following exercises at home. Make sure to perform these exercises in front of a mirror to ensure you're targeting the area you want to improve.
Close your lips firmly and try to squeeze them up softly. Then, move the lips to the right, hold on a second, and move them to the left. Keep doing the same movements for a minimum of 10 repetitions.
Smile with your Mouth Closed
Smiling with your mouth close is fantastic to lift the edges of your mouth and prevent drooping. Cover your teeth with your lips. Then move the corners of your mouth upwards like you're trying to smile wide. Keep smiling this way for 15 seconds, and then relax. Repeat the exercise 10 times, trying to widen the smile each time.
Use your Thumbs
One of the best exercises to make your lip look fuller is placing your thumbs in the middle of your top lip. Make sure your thumbnails lie softly against the gums. Carefully pull the upper lip down, trying to cover the thumbs. Hold this pose for approximately seven seconds. Repeat the movement for at least 10 minutes.
How To Create The Perfect Heart-Shaped Lips
Follow these steps if you want to discover the secret of the perfect heart-shaped lips.
Step 1: Make an X.
The first step is to achieve a solid lip foundation by marking the area. Identify the highest spot of your natural upper lip. Carefully draw a diagonal line across your upper lip. Repeat the procedure, now starting from the lower lip. This will create an "X" in the middle of your mouth.
The area below your "X" represents the middle of your lower lip. Carefully trace a line from the center of your bottom lip outward. Then go sideways by drawing a slight "V" to connect your upper and lower lips.
Now it's time for you to connect all the lines. We recommend using a brush to create a fine line.
Step 2: Apply Concealer.
The secret to achieving flawless lips is to prepare a spotless canvas by applying your favorite concealer.
It's recommended to use a top-quality concealer such as THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF28 PA++ to make your lip colour look better and get rid of wrinkles and fine lines. Choose a concealer similar to your natural skin tone.
THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF28 PA++ comes in three shades: clear beige, rich beige, and natural beige making it perfect for people with pale to medium complexions.
Step 3 Put In your Favorite Lip Colour
We recommend using a lip gloss or lip tint if you want to achieve the perfect heart-shaped lips. These products are easy to blend and provide a glossy effect.
Start applying your favorite lip colour in the middle of your lips. It's best, to begin with, a tiny amount and then build up from there. Make sure to apply it all over your lips. Then use more lip colour in the centre of your upper and lower lips.
Repeat the process until you achieve the intensity you want.
We love 3CE Velvet Lip Tint because you can use them in many different ways as a dewy and natural tint, as a unique gradient, or layer them several times to build a bolder colour.
Finish your look by pressing your lips together to blend the lip colour.
