Mario Dedivanovic, one of the most acclaimed, followed, and influential makeup artists in the world, has created a new lip liner technique—Mario’s Lip Lift—that has gone viral on TikTok. With this new technique, Mario wanted to show everyone an easy, inexpensive, and less-permanent alternative to the surgical “lip flip” treatment we’ve seen taking the beauty world by storm. It’s actually super easy to do with the right steps and the right products. We got the lowdown on exactly how to achieve this technique from Mario’s team themselves.

Slightly overline outside the upper lip line, paying most attention to the Cupid’s bow area – the Cupid’s bow should be more overlined then the outer corners. This makes lips appear fuller, more enhanced, and shortens the space between nose and lip.
Next, slightly overline the center of the bottom lip line, then extend the liner upwards towards the outer corners of the mouth, moving the liner inside the lip line. This creates the illusion of a lifted lip, some even say .
Finish by applying a dab of your foundation or concealer to the brush, then clean up the edges of the lower lip (if necessary) so the liner is crisp – this creates an even greater lifted effect. Set the concealer with translucent powder for extended wear.
Finally, complete the look with the Makeup by Mario Ultra Suede™ Lipstick in your preferred color.
