Plump Up Your Pout Without A Lip Job

13 Mar

What is the first thing you notice when you look at Angelina Jolie’s or Kylie Jenner’s face? Their plump pout, right? Bee stung lips have become a rage over the past few years and with this trend, lip liners have got back into the limelight. Unlike the 1980s and 1990s, lip liner is no longer about complementary colors. In fact, it is more about contouring – to produce the delusion of plumpness.

Of course, another way to get plumper lips is to get a lip job. Yep, the good ol’ lip job that turned several good-looking celebs into walking nightmares. With all the money to turn you into a monster, none would want to go over there. There’s another way; you can also use lip plumping devices. As far as the results are concerned, they’re not guaranteed to give you those perfect Kylie lips. Risk it or leave it! However, we all know that as strange as it sounds, the lip liner tricks have been the old school of the vanity fair all along. Even Marilyn Monroe used lip liner hacks to top the beauty standards across the globe. So, what do you say?

Slay The World With These Tricks

Want to flaunt a fuller, more defined pout? Here’s how you can plump up your lips with as little exertion (and cost!) as possible:

  1. Moisturizing The Lips

No matter what you believe, you can’t deny the sexiness of smooth, moisturized lips. You’d be surprised to see how plump your lips will look if you apply a hydrating layer before anything else. Look for a lip balm that includes a substantial amount of peppermint oil. It helps in improving circulation naturally, thereby, allowing increased blood flow to your pout. Let your favorite moisturizer or lip balm sit for about 5 minutes so all the dead cells can easily be removed.

  1. Exfoliating For a Better Pout

Now it’s turn to exfoliate your lips. You can use a toothbrush or a lemon-sugar combo to scrub your lips gently. Toothbrush works by slightly irritating your lips, which makes them swell and appear more defined. Therefore, choose a toothbrush with softer bristles to avoid serious irritation.

Scrubbing in circular motions will allow increased blood flow and will make your lips apparently look slightly plumper than before. By the way, Angelina Jolie is rumored to be using toothbrush to scrub her lips every morning. So, you can’t get wrong with this trick!

  1. Conceal, Don’t Reveal Those Lips

For a smoother lip color application, you need to make sure there’s a base beneath it. You can make your lips brighter by using a foundation or a concealer base. It gives you the upper hand to add layers to highlight your preferred pout.

Adding a base will not only give your lipstick a slicker texture, but also help you maintain your plump look all through the day.

  1. Over- and Under-line

Make sure you use a lip liner that’s a shade or two darker than your natural lip color. Drawing your desired shape, start from your cupids bow and taper down to your natural lip line. Don’t forget to under-line a little lower than your lower lip to make it appear bigger.

Using a lip liner that is slightly darker than your natural lip color will create the overall appearance of your lips more genuine and gorgeous.

  1. Fill The Lip Space and Contour

Once you’ve made as far as forming a pouty lip line, you can fill the inner lip space with the same shade with which you drew the outline. It will make your new lip line appear more natural. Moreover, you can always contour to add some drama to your nice pout.

  1. Top it off with Layers of Lipstick and Gloss

If you want to get bigger lips, avoid using darker shades and opt for lighter colors. Dark shades tend to make your pout look flat. Use pale pinks or nude shades to create the illusion of plumper lips.

Add a clear gloss on top of your lipstick for a more defined look. Lip gloss tends to reflect light and makes your lips appear fuller. So, the next time, dab your beloved gloss on the center of your lips for a highlighting impact.

In Conclusion…

Apart from these tips, there are many others you can use to make your lips appear fuller. Just because you haven’t got a pout, doesn’t mean you can’t make one. So, go ahead and rock the world – obviously without having lip injections!
