It may feel like the whole world has gone crazy with their obsession with plumped up lips. Whilst most of the celebrity lips you envy have probably had the help of a little bit of filler, you don’t have to go under the knife for a plumper pout. Follow these three hacks to make your lips look fuller, no needle necessary.
1. Line along your lip
You’ve probably heard about over lining your lips with lip liner but you’re only getting half the benefit if you stick to your outer corners. Smile to stretch out your lips and then draw one line down the centre of your bottom lip and two additional lines on either side of it. This will add dimension and the appearance of volume once covered with lipstick.
2. Wear nude lipstick
We know that harsh reds and dark shades of plum and maroon are totally in vogue right now, but they aren’t doing anything for your lips. Just like how darker colours of clothing make you appear slimmer, darker shades of lipstick have the same effect on your lips. Wear a shade of nude slightly deeper than your natural lip colour for the fullest looking pout.
3. Get contouring
Contouring isn’t just for cheekbones ladies! Brush a little bit of darker contour powder underneath your bottom lip to add depth, and brush on some highlight along your cupids bow. This gives the appearance of full, pouty lips in the same way it helps you to achieve gorgeous high cheekbones.
