Just like eyes, lips get smaller when you apply dark colors to them. But color is just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to getting a bee-stung effect--the other is texture. A glossy, watery finish reflects light and creates the illusion of grandeur. Gonzalez suggests first outlining the perimeter of your lips using a concealer brush dipped in bronzer two shades deeper than your skin tone: "It yields a more natural result than pencil." Then, top pout with gold, peach, or coral gloss. Used on model: Victoria's Secret Bare Bronze Collection Flawless Glow Face Bronzer and Clinique Full Potential Lips Plump and Shine in Play-Full Plump.
