We all want a plump pout but we all aren’t blessed with naturally voluptuous lips. And let be honest, fillers and surgery isn’t an option for us all.
But don’t worry. I’ve put together 7 make up hacks which will make your lips look bigger, plumper and more voluptuous.
1. Prep Your Lips
No one likes dry crusty lips. So first your going to need to exfoliate your lips using a exfoliating scrub and then use a lip balm to hydrate your lips. My favourite lip scrub is the Barry M Mango Lip Scrub and I hydrate my lips using the Carmex Lip Balm.
2. Contour Your Lips
By adding a darker shade underneath the centre of your bottom lip and above the top of your lips you’ll create a subtle shadow and give the effect of plumper lips. I like to use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit in fawn and don’t forget to blend it in.
3. Highlight Your Cupid’s Bow
By adding a little highlight on your Cupid’s bow it’ll add light and therefore make your lips look more plump. I like to use the Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette In The Golden Sands Edition and blend it with my finger.
4. Overline your lips
This is probably the easiest and most effective way to make your lips appear bigger. But you need to be careful you don’t overdo it or you’ll end up looking unnatural. I like to use the Mac Cosmetics Lip Liner Pencil In Stripdown.
5. Use a lip plumping gloss
For an instant boost in volume, use a plumping lip gloss that contains ingredients that’ll naturally increase the size of your lips. The gloss adds light to your lips making them appear bigger and the lip plumping ingredients will actually plump your lips. So it’s a win win. I like to use the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Gloss.
