How to get fuller looking lips

Hello everyone!

So one of the most popular trends going on right now is big and full lips. I unfortunately wasn’t blessed with big full lips so I’m going to share with you some tips that I use to achieve a fuller lip look.

Here’s a quick look at each step to the process!

steps

  1. To start I like to have fully exfoliated lips because this helps the lip products go on nice and smooth and makes your lips look more supple. To exfoliate I use Lip Sugar Scrub in Pink Lemonade that I got locally in downtown Fredericksburg at a shop, LadyBurg. If you are local and haven’t checked this place out I highly recommend it because they have so many nice homemade beauty products. If you don’t have a lip scrub you can use a tooth brush, just wet it a little and gently scrub over your lips. That will also work to get all the dead skin off.
  2. Next I just quickly put on a lib balm to make sure my lips are moisturized. I use Blixtex Medicated but any lip balm will do.
  3. After that I line my lips. I used Maybelline Pencil Lip Liner in 20 Nude. After I outline I fill in my lips a little with this lip liner to spread the color so there isn’t a hard line.
  4. Next I add on some lip stick, I used Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Stick in 920 Nude Lust. Make sure you rub your lips together to blend the lip stick and liner so there isn’t a harsh edge.
  5. For the second to last step I put on a little bit of NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm. Make sure to blend this as well. This lip cream gives such a nice color and compliments the lip stick and lip liner very well. (If you want more of a matte finished look you can stop here at this step)
  6. Finally for the last step I added some lip gloss to finish it off, I used Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss in Fearless. Make sure to blot and you’re all done!

All of the lip products I used were in a nude color tone because nude/natural colors helps makes the appearance of the lips larger, while non-natural colors makes the lips look smaller. If you don’t have these specific products don’t worry, really any lip liner, lip stick, and gloss in similar shades will do.
