Having fuller, plump lips is the popular look among celebrities. Along with bigger lips, matte lip stick is the latest trend in the world of makeup. Therefore, you need healthy soft lips to apply the product on top of. Also because it is still chilly outside lips can become extremely dry and flaky. Having boring, pealing lips is not only annoying but it is not very cute.
The first tip is getting rid of rough dry lips. What I like to do is use a lip scrub. Similar to a body scrub, a lip scrub exfoliates the dead skin off. There are lip scrubs available in the stores but there is a much easier and cheaper way to make the same product yourself. All you need is equal parts of coconut oil, raw honey, double the amount of raw or granulated sugar and a hint of lemon juice. Mix this all together and gently rub around on the lips. Then simply rinse off the residue and just like that you have soft kissable lips. This homemade lip scrub is easy to make and use. Not to mention it taste pretty good too. (The photo on the left shows how smooth my lips look after the scrub and before I applied any lipstick.)
With this in mind, I like to get a supple look without obviously getting cosmetic surgery. A trick I have to get fuller looking lips is to apply a lip volumizing gloss by Soap and Glory. It is called “Sexy Mother Pucker XL Extreme-Plump” and it has natural ingredients that give a fuller lip look. It is priced at around ten dollars which is a cheap solution to achieve this look. Also there is the secret of over lining the lips. This trick does work as well but only if it is done right. The way to pull this off is to only go over our natural lips at your cupids bow (highest point of the upper lip) and the lowest point of the bottom lip. If you only over line the lips in the middle areas of the lips it looks more realistic than going over the whole boarder of the mouth. (The photo below is what it looks like after applying the plumper and doing the over lining trick on top of it)
