Full, pouty and plumped lips… we all want them but not all of us are born with Angelina’s plumped pout. But don’t worry now you can achieve that pouty look instantly, no I am not asking you to book appointment with surgeon for fillers because they are risky. With some makeup tips and tricks you can actually get fuller and bigger lips instantly naturally.
Exfoliate: After brushing your teeth, brush your lips as we’ll; to get “pouty effect” instantly. Brushing lips will not only remove dead skin cells and make your lips smooth but it will also plump them up due to increased blood circulation. To enhance the effects, first apply Vaseline and then brush for nourished and hydrating look.
Light Shades: It’s believed that wearing black makes you look slim, in the same way wearing light shades on lips gives an illusion of fuller and pouty lips. I know “hot red” shade is very much in trend but choose a bright red shade if you have thin lips instead of deep-red or burgundy-red. Use nude or clear shade for instant pouty effect.
Clear Gloss: After wearing your lip color, dot clear gloss in the center of your top and bottom lips. This actually gives a 3-D effect to your lips and makes them pop. If your bottom lip is bigger than your top lip then you can apply gloss only on top lip to create a proper proportion. The gloss bounces light which gives and illusion of fuller lips.
Highlight: take shimmery highlighter or any light-colored concealer and apply it above your cupid bow on the “V” shape of your upper lip. Blend it really well so that no harsh lines or whiteness is left. This trick gives an illusion of fuller lips because the concealer reflects lights and causes lips to appear fuller.
Cinnamon: cinnamon actually creates a warm sensation that increases blood circulation and gives a temporary fuller look to lips. Make a paste using one tablespoon of granulated sugar, cinnamon powder and coconut oil each in a spoon. Mix well and scrub your bare lips using this cinnamon scrub for 1-2 minutes. Rinse it with warm water and you’ll see instant pouty-effect. The effects will last for 4-5 hours.
Lip-liner: Kylie Jenner’s gets her fuller lips by over-lining her lips using a nude lip-liner. You can also accentuate your lips using nude colored liner. Create a shadow by “over-lining” your bottom lip, just slightly outside your natural lip-line but don’t over-draw your upper lip because it will look fake. Once you are done with lining, fill in your lips using the same nude lip-liner and brush the edges to get rid of any harsh edges.
