How to Make Lips Look Fuller?
Full lips are a sign of youthfulness and fertility. There is a sensuality about full lips that attracts attention. Therefore it is not surprising to find that many men and women are looking for ways to make lips look fuller. On this issue, women have the advantage because they can use tried and true cosmetic application methods to make lips look fuller. There is no need to resort to lip plumping products or surgical procedures if you have a great tube of lipstick on hand. Here are a few ways to make lips look fuller using a few easy to do techniques.
It all starts with a clean slate. While brushing your teeth in the morning, take a moment to brush your lips as well. This accomplishes several things. First, it helps get rid of dead skin that may be making your lips look less than attractive. The brushing helps stimulate circulation and your lips may react to the mint in your toothpaste. Increase blood flow and the irritation factor will make lips look fuller almost instantly. Afterwards, wash your lips thoroughly and apply a moisturizing lip balm. In addition to protecting lips from the elements, this will trap moisture and help make lips look fuller.
When it comes to your makeup, avoid using dark lip colors. Remember, dark colors have a shrinking effect, which is why you wear black when you unintentionally gain a few pounds. Lighter colors reflect more light and can make lips look fuller as a result. Use a lip liner in a shade close to the color of your lipstick and line your lips just on the outside edge of your natural lip line. This will prevent feathering and give the appearance that you have more lip than you actually do. Afterwards apply your lipstick.
To continue the illusion and make lips look fuller, dab a little bit of lip gloss in the center of your lips. Use a color that is only one or two shades lighter than the color you are wearing. Use a glittery gloss which will reflect more light and make lips look fuller. If you are not afraid of using a little more advanced technique, get a light brown eyeliner and line just underneath your bottom lip line. This will give the illusion that there is a shadow under your lips which will, eerily, make lips look fuller. Make sure you blend to prevent it from looking odd.
