1. Exfoliate with a Washcloth or Toothbrush
Exfoliating your lips is a great start to getting gorgeously full lips. It also helps to get the dead skin off to reveal prettier lips underneath. Exfoliating your lips gives them a temporary but slightly swollen appearance, which makes them look lovely and full. You can use an actual lip exfoliating product, but you can also achieve the same results with a wet washcloth or toothbrush. Gently rub the wet washcloth or toothbrush across your lips for a few minutes and you’ll notice a big difference.
2. Line Your Lips Just outside the Line
This one takes some practice. Many women don’t use a lip liner today, but it’s key to achieving a sexy, plump lip. Line your lips just outside the natural line. You don’t want to go very far outside the natural lip line or it won’t give you a good result. You may want to try this on days you’ll just be at home a few times before you feel ready to wear it this way in public. It makes a huge difference in how full your lips look.
3. Use a Bit of Concealer to Blend the Liner around Your Lips
Concealer can help you to make lining outside your lip line look more natural. You only want to use the smallest amount of concealer, though. Using a brush to apply it is the best choice here. Use a very small amount of concealer dabbed onto a brush to help blend the lip liner. Set with powder afterward.
4. Fill Your Lips in with Lipstick
After you have your lips lined, you want to carefully fill them in with lipstick. You can do this straight from the tube or with a lip brush. You may want to blot your lips and apply a second coat to ensure that your lipstick has more staying power. Everyone has their own technique for applying lipstick. Do whatever is most comfortable for you.
5. Apply a Dab of Lip Gloss in the Middle of Your Lips
This little secret can really pump up your lips. Don’t apply lip gloss over your full lip. Instead, just dab a small amount of lip gloss in the middle of your lips, especially concentrating on the middle of your lower lip. It helps create the illusion of very full lips. You can use a colored gloss that goes well with your lipstick or a clear lip gloss. Either one will give you the same result.
6. Eat Something Spicy
Spicy foods are something else that’ll temporarily plump your lips. There are many choices that would work here. A meal at your favorite Mexican restaurant probably gives you this effect and you just haven’t noticed. Be sure to look in the mirror after your next Mexican meal and observe the difference. Cinnamon does the same thing so enjoy your favorite cinnamon bread or toast.
7. Kiss More
This is a very fun way to get the sexy, plump lip look. Enjoy smooching with your partner and the after effect of full lips. This gives you two benefits in one. Of course, this can mess up your lipstick! Maybe you can just leave the lipstick application off till afterward. These are 7 secrets to getting sexy, plump lips. What tricks do you use for this? I’d love to know your secrets!
