If there’s one thing we’ve learnt from the Kardashian-Jenner sisters (apart from their contouring skills, of course), is how a fuller pout can totally transform your appearance.
While you can opt for fillers and injections to get a fuller pout, there are ways to achieve pillowy lips with the help on makeup too. Let us show you how to fake a fuller pout in a few easy steps…
- Step 01: Exfoliate
- Step 02: Moisturise
- Step 03: Conceal
- Step 04: Line your lips
- Step 05: Apply the lip colour
- Step 06: Use gloss as a highlighter
Step 01: Exfoliate
Did you know that flaky lips reflect less light, making your lips look thinner than they are? It is, therefore, important to exfoliate your lips thoroughly. Simply mix together some sugar and honey and use it to give your lips a quick scrub.
Step 02: Moisturise
Just like your skin, you need to hydrate your lips post exfoliation as well. Dry lips tend to shrivel and appear smaller. Therefore, use a hydrating lip balm such as the Vaseline Lip Therapy Original Chapstick and allow it to sit on your lips for a few minutes before moving ahead.
Step 03: Conceal
A quick hack to make your lips look fuller is to blur the line between your lips and the skin around the mouth. Take a little bit of the Lakme Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer and apply it on your lip as well as around the skin on your mouth. This will help give you a seamless, fuller pout.
Step 04: Line your lips
Next, go in with either a nude lip liner or a shade that’s closest to the lipstick you’re planning to wear. Apply it just above your lips in the area where you have applied concealer. Remember to not go too far out because that will make you look comical.
Step 05: Apply the lip colour
Post applying the lip liner, you can go ahead and fill in your lips with the lipstick colour of your choice. The concealer and lip liner will provide the perfect base for your lipstick to cling on to, making your pout appear fuller. Additionally, your lipstick will stay on a lot longer if you follow these steps.
Step 06: Use gloss as a highlighter
This is the final step and one that makes a world of difference. Take a little bit of the Lakme Lip Gloss – Vanilla on your ring finger and then gently dab it right in the centre of your upper and lower lip. This little trick will help reflect light, thereby providing the illusion of a fuller pout.
