What do Kylie Jenner, Angelina Jolie, Priyanka Chopra-Jonas and Rihanna have in common? Gorgeous, world-famous pouts! You may chalk it up to good genes or to fillers, but a full pout is what every girl wants. Your mind may instantly drift to thinking about lip fillers and other expensive (not to mention painful) ways of making your lips look fuller, but there are ways out there to fake a plumper pout without spending a single penny and without uttering a single 'ouch'.
Exfoliating your lips every morning while in the shower can make for a great hack to achieve plumper lips. Use a damp toothbrush and brown sugar and brush your lips gently in circular motions for a few minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water and follow it up with a lip balm. Doing so will slough off dead skin, making your lips softer.
Right before you go in with your lipstick, apply concealer on your lips to give your lipstick a base and to add volume to your lips. Your lipstick application will look neater and your lip colour will pop.
While most of us skip lip liner, it can actually make your lips look fuller. Overlining your lips is one fool-proof hack that can instantly make your lips look fuller. However, the risk here is over-lining which can make it look unnatural. We suggest you pick a lip liner that matches your skin tone. Draw a soft line to outline your lips and then fill in the colour.
Highlighter is one beauty product that can instantly up your glamour quotient and add fullness to your lips. Dab some on your cupid’s bow and at the centre of your lips and see a noticeable difference!
Prefer matte over gloss
Matte formulas work better in helping you achieve a fuller pout. However, if you’re a gloss fan, you still have a chance! Simply concentrate on the centre of your lips while applying your glossy lipstick and you’ll see how it takes your pout game to a whole new level.
