Full lips have long been a desired feature, but it’s only been over the last few years that it seems such lips are more in demand. Every girl wishes to have full and plump lips like Angelina Jolly and Kylie Jenner. It’s true that we all are not blessed with full lips from birth and not everyone among us has the desire to go under the knife or take injection for getting full lips. Thankfully we can do it by using some smart makeup tricks. So if you’re trying to get that bigger and plump pout like Kylie Jenner, just use these tricks which I have used for getting full lips.
1 – Exfoliate
Flaky lips reflect less light, dry lips can make your lips look smaller. For getting rid of flakes, you should exfoliate your lips first, brush them lightly with a toothbrush. Exfoliation will boost the blood circulation and make them clean and pink. You can use sugar for you scrubbing your lips. it’s a natural scrub.
2 – Apply A Plumping Lip Balm
The second trick you have to use is applying a plumping lip balm which could provide extra hydration to your lips. It gives your lips a refreshing, tingling sensation and a glossy, visibly fuller appearance. I have used Rouge Bunny Rouge Kiss Elixir Lip Balm which works great on my lips.
3. Use concealer
Use a concealer on your lips to fake a larger canvas, for this at first apply concealer onto your lips by patting and then spread it a little over your lip line. This will make your lipstick look-alike and your lips will look thicker and larger.
4 – Color Outside the lines
This is the most important part of this method. At first draw an “X” over your cupid’s bow, then trace slightly outside your natural lip line using a lip liner. I only overdraw on my upper lips but if you have very thin lips, you can do it at the lower lips line. This is the key to make your lips look bigger.
5 – Now color your lips
Now apply your favorite colored lip gloss. Layering on lip gloss is a great option for achieving full lips. If you want to apply lipstick first and then top it with lip gloss, you can do it. I have applied a pink colored lip gloss only and satisfied with the effect. I have used L’Oreal Paris Infallible Mega Gloss – 109 Fight For It. Lip glosees are shiny and the shine of it reflects light helps to make them look plumper and fuller.
6 – Keep the rest of face simple
When you are focusing on your lips, keep the other parts of your face simple. I keep my eye makeup soft and natural, just apply eyeliner and a purple kohl in the waterlines of the eyes. I gave a light touch of pastel-colored blush to achieve a soft look. No contour, no highlight, just a flawless and natural makeup.
You can also use these tricks to achieve such look. I know that there are more professional tricks for getting full lips but I don’t want to make it complicated. Try these simple steps and believe me, you will love your fuller, bigger and plumper lips.
