To fill your lips evenly draw the shape as in the pictures on your cupid’s bow and lower lip. If you want to easily define the cupid’s bow area draw an X there and afterwards line the edges of the lips.
Step Three: Filling in The Borders
Next, fill in the borders of your lips with the liner, and add a few lines to the lips where they are fullest.
