Since Angelina Jolie rocked that sexy pucker, everybody went crazy trying to get a fuller-looking pout. Some women, depending on certain factors like genetics and race, have naturally full lips while others have thinner ones. Full lips are sexy. They’re very seductive and sensual-looking and that is why a lot of women try so many different cosmetic surgery procedures just to get them. However, as we all know, cosmetic surgery can be quite expensive. There’s also a possibility that the procedure would go wrong. Read on below and discover how you can get fuller looking lips naturally, right in the comfort of your own home.
- Exfoliate regularly – exfoliating your lips regularly does so much more than just give you smoother and softer lips. Exfoliating your lips regularly also boosts circulation which triggers it to plump up and become fuller. Of course, the results will not last forever which is why you are advised to do it regularly. You can exfoliate your lips using things that you would normally find at home. One of the easiest ways to exfoliate is to mix a bit of sugar with Vaseline, honey or olive oil, put the mixture on your lips and then take an old toothbrush (or a new one with soft bristles like that of kiddie toothbrushes) and start brushing your lips in small circular motions. You can do this 2 to 3 times a week.
- Create the illusion using a lip liner – if you want fuller looking lips all day, every day, make sure you have lip liners on hand all the time. Use your lip liner to trace and line your lips before you put on lipstick and gloss. First, follow the natural shape and size of your lips and then gradually move outwards to achieve the shape and fullness that you want. Once you’re done, fill it in with lip liner and top it off with lipstick.
- Avoid very dark lip colors – yes, darker colors make your look a whole lot sexier but if you want to make your lips look like they’re bigger and fuller, steer clear of dark lip colors as these tend to make your lips look thinner. Instead, go for light lip colors and choose glossy lip sticks in addition to using lip gloss. A light lip color and a coat of lip gloss is perfect if you want to create the illusion of fuller lips.
- Use natural lip plumping ingredients – if you search your cupboard or your pantry, you’re sure to find one or two items that are sure to help plum up your lips. Some of these ingredients include cinnamon. Chili powder, and menthol. Choose one of these ingredients, take a little bit and mix it with honey then dab it onto your lips. Leave the mixture on for 5 minutes and then wipe it off and apply lipstick as usual. You may feel a slight stinging sensation on your lips, just like you would if you used commercial lip plumpers, because the ingredients will mildly irritate your lips to make them swell and look bigger and fuller.
