These days, full lips are all the rage on social media. Everyone wants a picture-perfect pout, just like certain celebrities on Instagram. One way to get full lips is getting lip injections, which is a process in which lips are injected with a filler compound to give the appearance of fuller lips. This method is the way most celebrities turn to; however, there are other safer methods to achieve the desired results. Thatâ€™s why today Iâ€™m going to talk about how you can get the pout of your dreams without ever visiting the plastic surgeonâ€™s office
Firstly, you should invest in a plumping lip balm. Not only do these balms work wonderfully to hydrate the lips, but they also have various ingredients that will enhance the looks of the lips by increasing blood circulation and making them look fuller. Look for products that contain collagen or peppermint, as collage has a naturally plumping effect while peppermint increases blood circulation. The tingling sensation you feel when applying these balms is due to the rush of blood to the lips, like when you eat spicy food and your lips look swollen.
Another thing you should do is use a lip scrub regularly. A lip scrub gently exfoliates dead skin cells and smooths out the appearance of your lips. It also manually stimulates the lips to increase blood flow and works similarly to a plumping balm. After a few minutes of gentle exfoliation and voila, you will have fuller lips.
Do you want more? If you’re going to take this one step further, you can try a microneedle face roller on your lips. Essentially, it creates micro-punctures that kickstarts the skin’s healing response by producing collagen and elastin. Proceed very cautiously with the method and start slowly to see how your lips react to it. Make sure you select the proper microneedling device and properly sanitize it before and after each use. Applying hyaluronic acid after microneedling can also help achieve plumper lips. Be sure to protect your lips with a safe topical antibiotic and/or protective lip ointment for at least 24 hours post-treatment to allow your lips to heal before applying any make-up. It will take multiple treatments initially, along with treatments every few months, to maintain the effect.
All of these methods are great for enhancing the appearance of your lips and increasing the size; however, they will not significantly alter the shape of your lips. So if you want your lips to look full and have an attractive shape, then you should use makeup to highlight and define your lips along with these natural plumping methods. Iâ€™m going to walk you through some makeup tips so you can rock that pout every day!
Using a moisturizing primer on your lips will provide the proper foundation for your lip makeup to go on smoothly. This is a step that’s often skipped, but lips can often end up looking very dry, or the lip color may appear uneven.
2. Lip Liner
Find a lip liner that matches the shade of your lipstick (it shouldn’t be noticeably darker) and lines your lips smoothly. While lining, overdraw ever so slightly but resist your temptation to go overboard.
Carefully fill in with a matte or satin finish lipstick to get full coverage. Be sure to apply it in thin, even layers. It’s better to put two thin layers than a single thick layer.
From here, you need to apply a highlighter to your cupid’s bow to define your lips and cupid’s bow, and this will look pretty.
Finish off by using a clear gloss or a gloss that is one shade lighter than your lipstick and placing it right in the center of your lips to give a gorgeous contrast between light and dark. You will instantly get full-bodied lips!
My lovelies, always remember that you are gorgeous, and your natural lips are stunning. No celebrity should influence you to go under the knife! With these simple methods, you can get full, spectacular lips, so go ahead and try them out!
