How to Make Lips Look Bigger | 10 Makeup Tips for Fuller Lips

A bigger and fuller lip adds a special dimension to the beauty of the face. Some possess it naturally, some earn it with the help of cosmetic surgery.

But there is no need to feel upset if you are neither a proud possessor of a fuller lip nor can you afford the hefty cost of a plastic surgery.

There are simple makeup tricks that are sure to make your lips look bigger and fuller without many efforts and bring back smile on your face.

1. Keep Your Lips Hydrated

To get a plump and rosy lip, it is important to keep it hydrated always. The best way to achieve that is to apply chapstick on the lips before going to bed and leave it overnight.

The lip balm will moisturize the skin of the lips and make it look younger. This will also add a natural glow to the lips.

2. Exfoliate Your Lips Well

Take a toothbrush and rub it lightly on the lips in a circular motion. This will increase the blood flow to your lips making them look plumper.

However, a note of caution is that the skin on the lips is very sensitive and hence too much pressure should never be applied to them. Apply as much pressure as you need to tap your smartphone.

3. Priming

Pat some concealer or lightweight primer on your lips and slightly over the lip line, for a bigger base. Application of foundation is also a good way to ensure that your lipstick doesn’t slip off.

This thing provides a base on which you can decorate your lips the way you want.

4. Dab Some Lipgloss

Using clear lip gloss or a shade close to your lipstick color, apply a dab of gloss onto the middle of both of your lips. The shimmery product picks up light, making your pout look fuller.

5. Use Lipliner to Contour

Outline your lips with a lip liner that is 1 or 2 shades darker than your lip color. This will highlight the natural shadow of your lip and bring out a dramatic pout.

To make your thin lips look bigger, overline the cupid’s bow starting from the tip of the bow and down to the corner of the mouth using a thin line. The line should gradually merge with the natural lip line on both corners of the mouth.

For this, it is better to use a shade that is close to the original lip color to give it a natural look. Now, use the same color to fill up the gap between the new lip line and the original one.

6. Apply a Matte Lipstick

Finally, apply the lipstick. But to get a perfect appearance of bigger lips it is always better to use matt lipstick which never highlights the overlined lip line. Shades of red are best for perfect pouted lips.

If you don’t have a matte lipstick, dab translucent powder over the lipstick coat. You can also use skin- colored power on top of the lipstick.

7. Use Neutral Powder & Highlighter 

Once the lipstick is applied to dab a little highlighter at the center of your upper lip. Also, with the help of a concealer brush apply a neutral powder of darker shade below your lower lip.

The effect will be the appearance of an extra plumpness of the lips.

8. Taking Help of the Lip Gloss

You can apply a lip gloss at the center of your top and bottom lips. This technique will highlight your lips and make them look fuller.

9.Clean Up With a Concealer Brush

After application of the lipstick, you should clean up any harsh line using a concealer brush. This process will remove a sharp edge created by the liner and soften the lip line to give a natural look.
