The Perfect Pout
Full lips are a trend that has taken the world by storm as of late. Kylie Jenner is arguably at the forefront of this mass desire for a fuller pout. It is safe to say that full lips have progressed past fad status and has solidified its place as a fully-fledged trend in the beauty industry.
There are other reasons why people are opting to get lip fillers (aside from emulating their favourite celebrity) and these include reducing the appearance of a gummy smile or giving the mouth area the anti-ageing treatment.
Whatever your reasons, these two methods will allow you to experiment with the look of fuller lips before deciding whether or not you would like to go ahead with lip fillers.
Enhance your lips with this makeup method:
Step 1: Exfoliate your lips using a lip scrub to ensure that you have a smooth surface to work with.
Step 2: Apply a lip balm and allow some time to soak into your lips.
Step 3: Fake your lip line using concealer. Pat some concealer on your lips just a little above the lip line. This gives a larger appearance to your lips and makes the lipstick easily stick to the concealer giving an appearance of fuller and bigger lips. Alternatively, you may wish to slightly overline your lips with a lip liner that matches your chosen lipstick.
Step 4: Apply your lipstick with the lines created with your concealer/lip liner.
Step 5: Apply shimmer lip gloss to the centre of your lips to make them pop and give the illusion of a fuller pout.
Peppermint essential oil can be used as a natural method to slightly enlarge your lips. Peppermint works by gently irritating your lips – minus the swelling. You get fuller lips without any side effects. As an added benefit, it will have a soothing effect on your skin.
Method: Dilute a little peppermint oil with some water, and apply on your lips. Leave it for a minute or two, and then wash off.
