#1. Outline your lips

Choose a lip liner which is the closest to your natural lip colour and outline your lips. Do not forget to accentuate your cupid’s bow that sits right under your nose. Now go ahead and trace your lower lip too to give an instant lift and definition to your lips. While you are outlining your lips make sure you are not applying it too far from your natural lip line or using too dark a shade of your lip liner otherwise, it will give an impression that you are too hard to fake plump lips.

#2. Fill the lips with nude colour

Once you’ve outlined your lip line, use a nude lipstick shade to fill both your lower and upper lip.

#3. Blending is the key

With the help of an angled lip brush, blend the lipstick and the lip liner. You will automatically notice that this defines your lip shape even more than if you were applying the lipstick directly along your lips.

#4. Highlighting  

Focus again on your cupid’s bow and using a thick, flat lip brush highlight it with a bronzer. Apply bronzer using the same brush under the bottom of your lip to create an illusion of fuller, plumper lips.

#5. Adding a glossy touch

From your makeup kit, pull out your nude lip gloss. Depending on what sort of a lip gloss you have applied it on your lips, but it’s best to use an applicator. Do not apply it to your entire upper and lower lip. Just pat some on the centre of your lower lip with the applicator or your finger to draw attention to that area for it makes it look fuller.

Other things to keep in mind:

  • Say no to matte-finish and dark lipsticks for they weigh down your lips and draw all the attention to your lips, and also makes them look smaller and accentuate the original shape of your lip which may be thin.   
  • Dump those shimmer and sparkly lip glosses in the bin because they add age to your face.
  • Exfoliate your lips with a sugar scrub to get rid of dead skin. Another advantage is that it increases blood circulation to your lips. If you don’t have a lip scrub, use a soft toothbrush and gently exfoliate.
  • Your go-to shades should be all shades of nude.
  • Learn the art of contouring your lips (refer to step 2 and 3 above) because apparently contouring isn’t just for cheeks and nose.
  • Invest in a bronzer, if you don’t have one already.

We hope that all your questions to sport fuller lips have been answered and the secret is in your vanity kit! What more are you waiting for? Just get going and be pout-ready for a stunning selfie.
