Get Fuller Lips the natural way #kyliejennerchallenge
23rd April 2015
Sucking shot glassess and bottles are not my idea of creating fuller lips but it seems the #kyliejennerchallenge is not going away but gaining momentum !! So as Makeup Artists our job is to give you the best makeup tricks and tips for getting fuller lips the natural way and not damaging sensitive lip tissue.
Peppermint oil gives lips increased fullness. Peppermint oil irritates lips enough to cause slight swelling and add a temporary flush of color without causing serious harm.
Apply cinnamon essential oil in a circular motion to give your lips an extra boost. As an added bonus, your lips will retain the enticing aroma of cinnamon throughout your day.
Capsicum Oil ,the component of red peppers which gives them their spice, improves blood flow and circulation. When applied sparingly to the lips, capsicum oil acts as a natural plumping serum and so your lips look extra full.
Try homemade remedies such as exfoliating with a mixture of brown sugar and coconut oil. This will increase circulation to your lips, naturally increasing their volume while giving lips a rosy glow. Try the Lush Lip Scrub in a variety of delicious flavours €6.95 from LUSH !
Highlight & Shine
Apply highlighter to the cupid’s bow of your lips and a shimmering balm to the centre of your bottom lip. The shimmer will reflect light and give lips the appearance of being much larger than they are.
BeesWax / Bee Venom
You may have heard of the latest celebrity craze surrounding bee venom, but honey or beeswax are equally beneficial, especially when it comes to your lips. The honey will give your pout an enviable fullness.
Instead of putting down the toothbrush after brushing your teeth, turn the brush on your lips next. Lightly brushing lips will increase blood flow, and in turn make them temporarily fuller.
Makeup Artistry Tricks
To create the illusion of fuller lips, apply a pink-toned lipstick, followed by a lip liner slightly darker than the lipstick, and top off with a light-reflecting gloss. MAC Soar or Spice lipliner followed by MAC Brave, Twig or Faux Lipstick are perfect near lips shades to create the illusion of fullness!
If all else fails ?????!!!!!
Grinning & Smiling exercises your lips enough to lift and plump them. Blow a kiss, smile a lot get your lips moving !!!
