Lipstick has the ability to change our look, shift our mood, and give us confidence. So, in honor of National Lipstick Day, we have some tips on how to fake a fuller pout.
The first step to getting fuller lips is exfoilating your lips. Here is a quick DIY HACK.
Here’s how it works: Work the toothbrush in circular motions on your lips. This helps get the blood flowing giving your lips a natural volume, and a healthier looking rosy color. Plus, it helps get rid of any dead skin, making for a smoother lip application.
TIPS USING LINER FOR FULLER LIPS:
Tip 1: Stick with a neutral tone.
Tip 2: Start by shading in the corners
Tip 3:Don’t go too far outside your natural lip line
Tip 4: Blend out the edges (pat/ blend with fingers)
Tip 5: Fill in the center with a matte lipstick
