My top lip is a lot smaller than my bottom lip too!
Lip liner my friend, lip liner is the answer.
Lip liner will allow you to draw a bigger top lip. I always slightly over draw my top lip and create a fuller top lip to balance out my larger bottom lip. I just draw a little above my natural lip shape, trying to create a new lip shape will make it look a little too fake.
I have a lip liner that matches my lip color to wear every day and I’ll throw some lip gloss or a sheer lipstick on top. But I also have a pink and nude lip liner that will match with most lipsticks when I want to wear actual lipstick. For bold/bright lipstick a lip liner is a must! I have a red and deeper red/wine shade and they match with most of my bolder lip colors :)
Try Sonia Kashuk’s Undetectable Bronzer in Warm Tan (the lightest shade)
I have the darker shade because i’m a medium skin tone and it blends flawlessly! You can blend it out to where its very natural or build it up. Its about $10 at Target. Or you can just use a cream/liquid foundation a few shades darker than your skin tone, I recommend the Maybelline Fit Me foundations sticks because they are easy to apply in the hollows of your cheeks :)
For powders try something like NYX Taupe or Maybelline’s Fit Me Bronzers!
NYX Taupe is a really cool brown/taupe. It’s not super pigmented so it goes on somewhat sheer but you can build it up! It will never look orange or muddy.
The Maybelline Fit Me Bronzers are also very light weight! Not too dark, very natural looking. I’d recommend Light Bronze, the lightest color.
Lastly, try Too Faced Milk Chocolate bronzer, it’s lighter than the Chocolate shade and great for contouring!

I LOVE the Queen Helen’s Mint Julep mask, super cheap at only $3 too! I use it about once or twice a week and it makes your pores a lot smaller and helps with acne and blackheads. I can’t say one bad thing about it!
I get mine at Ulta, Walgreens or online :)

Yes you can totally use them wet like a beauty blender! They are just harder to clean so you cant reuse them. But they will give a similar effect when used wet as the beauty blender. Using dry will give better coverage, using wet will give a more natural finish. Try using them dry or slightly damp under your eyes to blend out concealer!
Using them wet also prevents the sponge from soaking up too much product so you don’t waste any foundation or anything. Just make sure to squeeze out as much water as possible you don’t want it too wet :)
