How To Fake A Lip Flip Using Just Lip Liner
The Botox flip lip has become a popular alternative to lip injections, but it can lead to weakening of the lip and even paralysis. Instead, mimic the lip flip look using lip liner.
Kim Kardashian's makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, says you can achieve this look by overlining the center of the upper lip, narrowing it as you move to the corners of the mouth.
Dedivanovic told Glamour to "slightly overline the center of the bottom lip line" and extend it "upwards toward the outer corners of the mouth" for the illusion of a lifted lip.
Once your lip liner is in place, blend it with a brush from the outside of the mouth inward. Unlike Botox, this technique has no drawbacks, only benefits.
