How To Fake Fuller Lips & Not Look Botched AF

Natasha Patel , 09 Sep 2019

Like the many, many beauty trends that gain momentum and then die a slow death, somehow faking fuller, more luscious lips isn’t one of them. From Kylie Jenner to Priyanka Chopra, plumped lips are practically the most beautified feature of a woman’s body since the Jenner millionaire sported them back in 2015. And as we all know the craze for big lips took off and never slowed down.

But while Kylie’s empire was practically built on her signature Lip Kits, her protruded pout were a result of lip filler and injectables. Which err… is not how we would like to achieve ours. So here are 4 easy and quick-to-achieve steps to enhance your natural lips by using the products you already have in your beauty vanity!

1. Conceal

While setting your base makeup, use the left-over concealer or foundation on the beauty blender and dab it to the center of your lips. This helps in building contrast and brightening certain areas, which will make them look fuller. Dab some to the edge of your lip line, and blend the top edges to seamlessly blend it all into your skin.

2. Line

Using a liner in a similar shade to your lipstick. Then start lining the top and bottom of your lips—The trick to a fuller pout is to apply the liner over your natural lip line to create a more oversized pout. Once you’re traced the outer line and corners of your lip, leave the center bare.

3. Fill

Take your lipstick and start by applying it first at the center and then blend it all together with lipstick with a lip brush or your fingers in a dabbing motion.
