How to naturally get fuller lips

Updated on March 5, 2013

Full lips

Full lips

Full lips lots of people want them and not everyone is born with them. Some women will go to great lengths to get fuller lips. There are lots of expensive products and procedures that promise big plump lips but these can be dangerous for your body and wallet. Luckily these tips are as simple as changing the way you apply your daily make up. You probably already have what you need at home if not these products are under five dollars.

Lip liner before and after

Lip liners

This is one of the easiest ways to get fuller looking lips and it takes only seconds. The first step is to choose a lip liner that is a shade darker than your usual lipstick. Next you apply the the liner along the very edge of your lips. Be careful not to go outside the perimeter of your lips or it will look sloppy and won't work. Now you are done with the liner you just need to apply you lipstick and you are all set. Another plus of using lip liner is that it makes your lipstick last longer!

peppermint oil

Natural plumpers

Lips are pretty sensitive and to make them fuller they just need to be slightly agitated. It does not take much at all. Strong oils like peppermint and cinnamon irritate the lips just enough to make them plump up. Adding these oils to your usual lipstick or gloss can turn them into lip plumpers. Just be careful and remember that you only need a very small amount. One or two drops for every couple of ounces should do the trick. Make sure that you test out your plumper to make sure that it is not to strong. When you try it out you should feel a slight tingling sensation but. If you start to feel like your lips are sore or burning then your mixture is to strong and remove it immediately. I use this trick at home all the time my favorite oil to use is spearmint.


Using lipstick

The way you apply your lipstick can make a difference too. Using shades that are only a couple shades off from your own look the most natural and work well in making your lips appear fuller. To make your lips look even more plump you will need to shades of lipstick very similar in color. Apply the lighter shade of lipstick to the center area of your lips and the darker on the outer perimeter. Darker shades make things look smaller and lighter shades make things look larger this is why this method works so well.

Lip gloss

Using lipgloss

Using a coat of lip gloss adds some shine and glamour to any look. This also makes your lips appear fuller. After applying you usual makeup try adding some lipgloss to your routine. This should make your lips appear to have more volume.
