Get it right- Juicy lips.

High self esteem aside, let's face it, we all want to look like Angelina the Great. And while she has killer eyes, perfect bone structure and the rest, if I had my pick of one pair of lips, it would be hers.

They're so damn pouffy, pillowy, full, voluminous and soft I want to build a monument for them! Praise the lips!

Thankfully, for us lesser mortals, cheating our way to yummy lips is a cinch. Follow these steps:

  • Everyone has an old toothbrush lying around. Apply whatever moisturiser you have, body lotion, or even Vaseline generously to the lips, and gently brush lips in a circular motion. This exfolitates dead skin or rough patches. Alternatively, just use a damp washcloth.
  • Pat on a lip balm to soften lips. Can't go wrong with Blistex.

  • Take a neutral coloured lip liner and trace slighty above the lip line. Please dont go overboard, the shaky nanna lip is just too tragic for words.

  • Colour in your lips with the pencil, and as lip pencil tend to be quite drying, use one with something like almond oil or shea butter.

  • You can either pop some peachy-pink shimmery gloss, or a lipstick thats a shade or two darker than your natural lip colour, then dab clear gloss in the center of your bottom lip.

And hey, presto! Angelina Jolie without the tribe of kids.
