If you must increase the size of your pucker, here’s a safe guide for doing exactly that, no sucking action required. Read on to get the details
1) Line Your Lips
Tracing slightly outside the perimeter of your lips can create the illusion of a fuller pout, but it’s neutral shades with no red undertones that deliver the most realistic result. Taupe colors like Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics’ lip pencil in Sebastian are your best bet, as they mimic the look of a natural shadow.
2) Rethink the Placement of Your Gloss
Concentrating a small amount of an ultra-shimmery gloss like Bobbi Brown’s just at the very center of your upper and lower lip plays tricks on the light, and makes your pucker look larger than it actually is.
3) Try a Lip Plumping Oil
Turns out, your workout regimen isn’t the only place you can feel the burn. Bite Beauty’s Cinnamon Plumping Lip Oil imparts a warming sensation to your lips, which borders on more of a tingle than a burn, to give off a slight flush and leave you with a more massive appearance.
4) Get a Balm Infused with Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid works to plump up fine lines on your skin, and the ingredient gives your lips the same treatment. The Lip 20 Balm Hydrating Treatment by Kaplan MD has high-tech hyaluronic spheres mixed into the formula, so you’ll get a boost in hydration as well as volume.
