You don't need an injection to have lips that look fuller. Just follow these five steps.

A question we’re often asked in my line of work is ‘how can I make my mouth look better?’

If we put aside that people are not really meaning their mouth – in which case they need to visit a dentist – then we can assume they’re asking about lips. Most women want their lips to look fuller which helps them look younger. 

Here are five easy and quick steps to help get that fuller, fresher look without resorting to an injection. 

1.  Get rid of the existing lip line

This might sound odd, but for most people it’s best to get rid of the existing lip line with concealer or foundation. This means you can ‘do your own thing’.

Certainly, if we’re doing a professional make-up for a special occasion, we always do this.

2.  Re-draw

Using a neutral and natural-toned lip pencil, draw a line just slightly above the top lip and along the lower lip line. Don’t exaggerate it – just do it exactly as I’ve described it and don’t be tempted by a darker lip pencil. Your natural colour is best.

3.  Fill in the lips

Fill in your lips with lip liner except for the very centre of your both lips.

4.  Add concealer

Now here’s the trick!

In the centre of your top and bottom lip, dab a little concealer – then add your lipstick. What this does is mix the concealer and lipstick together, making the centre of your lips lighter which, in turn, makes them fuller.

By the way, there’s some very good lipsticks with an SPF factor built-in and I would recommend these.

5.  Shimmer

To finish it off, apply a light shimmery gloss to the centre of the lips over the lipstick. Make sure you blend it outwards.

This has the effect of helping lips appear even fuller because the gloss reflects the light.

Good luck!

I think it is better to choose a nude lip liner that suits your skin color. But I am not sure about the lip gloss.

It was much more notable than vulnerable to some element screening to get the subject yet the amazing author is the person that will undeniably see every little polished part of things together with what’s even, later on, appropriate alongside over that used it in some surprising kind. nursing home care
