How to Get 1920s Cupid's Bow Lips

I am starting a new series on this blog called Lips of the Decades, beginning with the 1920s lips look, and ending with the 1980s. This series will be updated every Friday.


This look is so cute and flattering, you won't want to reserve it just for a costume party! In fact, the Cupid's Bow lips look is one that I almost always go for, whenever I wear red lipstick. It just gives your face a bit more character and intrigue, don't you think?

When wearing this look, it is best to keep your eyes simple. Just a simple smudge of black kohl or matte black eyeshadow around your entire eyes, with some black mascara, and you're ready for that party!

What you will need:

Lip balm.
A red lipstick of your choice. Here, I used Deborah Lippmann's "Bite Me" lipstick, from the True Blood collection.
A lip brush.

Step 1: Mark your upper lips with three dots, as demonstrated below.


Step 2: Connect the dots in very exaggerated curves, resembling a -- what else? -- cupid's bow. Stay inside of your lip line!


Step 3: Fill in the rest of your lips. Do not go outside of the line.


What lips look are you rocking these days? Leave your answer, and if you have a blog -- leave a link, too!
