How to make lips look paler?

I really adore (and envy) girls with lighter/pale lips. As for my own, they are fairly dark. I was wondering if anyone knows or have tried natural ways of lightening lips?

If it doesn't work out for me, does anyone have recommendations of lipsticks, balms, stains, etc., that do the job but are somewhat "lightweight"? I'll try just about anything, but I have to mention that I really dislike glossy lip products.

I have this problem as well. I also have dry lips

 

the concealer trick does work BUT make sure to use a concealer that is really emollient and hydrating otherwise your lips will just end up flaking like crazy.

Hi Mazio,

 

I like to use a TINY bit of concealer to nude out the lips first before lip products. You get more of a truer color for the lipstick to go on top of. You can also pick a matte nude lip color, which works well too!

Blot it on for a smoother/more sheer finish.

I have more pigmented lips, too. When I want to nude my lips out, I use NARS Pure Matte lipstick in Madere or MAC Myth lipstick. That pretty much erases my lips. Then I usually put a lighter gloss on top to add a bit more life back to my face. That's a lot of upkeep throughout the day though.

 

For lightweight lip products, I would recommend anything from the Bite Beauty line, Revlon lip butters and lip stains. Good luck finding something that works for you!
