Make Your Lips Look Fuller

Written by GuestAuthor

Materials Needed

You’ll need lip liner, foundation or lip base, and lipstick that is a shade lighter than your lip liner.

Create the Full Lip Look

There are cosmetics that really do make your lips fuller, but they can still look small if you don’t apply your lipstick correctly. Those cosmetics contain allergens so that your lips essentially have an allergic reaction and swell a bit. They may even tingle. Feel free to use that type of lipstick if you like, but by applying the technique here you can make your lips look even fuller, though not like you just cam out of a bitched cosmetic surgery job.

Begin by applying the base. Whether you use foundation or a lip base, this is an important step to make your lipstick last longer. It can also help prevent the bleeding of lipstick into the lines around your mouth.

Once the base has been applied, it’s time to work on the lip liner. Think of your lip liner the same way you thought of the crayon or marker you used top use to outline pictures. You’re going to do the same thing with your lips. Outline your mouth at the very edge of your lips.

*Tip: Unless you are going to be on television, never take your lip liner or lipstick outside of your lip line. They can get away with it on television and in pictures because those are 2D images. In 3D (the way we see real life) it just looks like a small child put your makeup on for you.

Take your lip liner to the corner of your lips, where the top and bottom meet. Fill in about a 1/2″ on either side, on both the top and bottom, using your lip liner. You are really just filling in the thinner parts almost to the point where your lips begin to get a bit fuller. Always work toward you lips and mouth rather than toward the outside of your lips.

Now, fill in your lips with the lipstick. Work from the outside to the inside instead of going all the way across your lips. Once the lipstick is applied, blend the line from the lip liner, pushing toward the inside of your lips. When you get done, the outside of your lips should be a shade darker than the inside, but should not be showing a line.
