It seems that big lips are the statement that is here to stay, and with everyone and their mother wanting to known how to get the perfect pout, here is our top five tips for doing just that.
If you don’t want to shell out a small fortune, aren’t sure you’re ready to commit, or are simply afraid of altering your natural pout, keep reading, to find out how to get a similar signature smile, without taking that leap.
Step 1. Exfoliate
By smoothing any dead skin from the lips with a simple lip scrub it means that not only are any skin particles not going to show up and dry out your lip make-up, the rough scrub means your lips will be instantly poutier and softer to boot.
Be gentle, and show caution when using harsh products too.
Step 2. Line
Slightly over line with lip liner.
Make sure the shade is only one colour above your own lip shade or it won’t look as natural as you would hope for.
Also make sure to only go slightly over your actual lip-line so as to avoid going over the top and keep everything looking as natural as possible.
Step 3. Matte lip
The reason why matte lips and liners come hand in hand in most ‘lip-kit’s‘ is because when used together in the correct way, it can give an instant lip enlarging effect.
Make sure you choose a colour similar to the liner, in maybe a shade darker to really increase the drama and make your lips pop.
Step 4. Gloss
Like anything, contour and highlighting your lips will help draw the eye and make your lips look way more full.
Apply a thin layer of a light gloss to the centre of the lip, then coat the lips fully in a similar shade gloss to your other lip products. This will ensure that your lips not only do your lips look shiny and nourished, but eye-catching too.
If you want to really draw the eye to your newly enhanced lips, simply dash some actual highlighter along the cupids bow and bottom of the lip to make them even more eye-catching.
Step 5. Plumper
This step is perhaps the easiest and most self explanatory of them all.
Any good plumping product might sting a little but is also the easiest and most efficient way to see a difference in your lips, no filler needed.
Simply top your lips off with a coat of this stuff off as either the finishing touches, before bed, or right before you apply your make-up and i’m sure you’ll notice results.
