2. Thin lower lip : Extend curve of lower lip to balance.

3. Thin upper lip : Build up curve of upper lip to balance.

4. Thick lips: Draw the outer line a little way inside the natural contours of the mouth. Use a darker shade in the centre, a slightly lighter one outside to make the mouth look smaller.

6. Uneven lips: In this case one side of the lip may be shaped quite different from the other. Observe your mouth closely and try to correct faults before mirror.
