Plump lips is a trend that doesn’t seem to want to go away; if anything, the lips are getting bigger by the day. While it’d be great to have the luxury of drowning in lip fillers like all of our fave celebs, it’s just not realistic. We need quick fixes, we need simple steps we can easily take to try to fake the Kylie lip we don’t have. Some of us aren’t willing to go far enough to get our lips done; some of us aren’t particularly into the duck lips effect. We just want to give our lips some extra oomph.
Look no further, we’ve provided you a few tricks you can use to easily create the lips of your dreams. These tips can really be personalized; just experiment and have some fun on your way to your personal lip goals!
Brush & Buff
Not only is this going to plump your lips, but it’s also going to give them a natural flush and you can just stop here for a natural lip look! BONUS TIP: apply a little bit of toothpaste onto it when doing this, it’ll give your lips some cooling minty freshness and the mint will further plump your lips!
Well, apparently you can contour just about anything these days, so why not your lips? Contouring them is simpler than anything, it only takes one tool–your lip liner. Grab a lip liner that’s slightly darker than your natural lip color and begin by outlining your lips. Then, slightly fill in the edges to give you an ombré effect.
Ombré lip looks are on trend, but they’re also a perfect way to achieve fuller lips. Pick a darker and lighter shade of the same color, but make sure the difference isn’t too stark. Begin by applying your darker lippie on the edges and pat it inwards. Then add a few dabs of your lighter lipsticks right in the center of your lips to give it dimension. Leave them looking poutier than ever.
