Aesthetic retouching aside, against which there is no makeup trick that can shade it, there are some low cost tips, also very effective , to visually increase the volume of your lips. From 100% natural home remedies to makeup tricks with products as simple as a profiler, a lipstick and an illuminator.
Here are 7 tricks so you can put it into practice and get juicy and more bulky lips.
Exfoliate your lips
It is recommended to exfoliate the lips at least 1 time per week to increase blood flow and achieve more intense lips. You can exfoliate your lips with a little brown sugar mixed with coconut oil, massage a few seconds and remove the excess with warm water.
It is essential that your lips are hydrated all day. Apply lip balm day and night. If not, you can create your own balm with some foods such as avocado or honey.
Peppermint or cinnamon oil
It helps improve blood circulation and naturally increase the volume of your lips. Apply one or two drops of cinnamon or peppermint oil to any lip balm and apply it whenever you need more bulky and intense lips. You can also use cinnamon powder and mix it with olive oil and let it act for about 5 minutes.
Opt for bright colors, such as red or fuchsia if you want your lips to appear thicker. Keep in mind that darker colors such as garnet or burgundy harden the features and also your lips, making them visually smaller.
Your ally to give volume to your lips is the profiler. Contour the lip with the profiler and draw vertical stripes to give volume. Then fill it with a lipstick of a less tone. Finally apply gloss or highlighter only in the central part of the lip to give a point of light.
Apply some concealer a lighter shade than the makeup base around the lips, and then redraw them with the profiler.
Mate vs. Glitter
Satin or gloss lipsticks can be an ideal complement to look dazzling lips and will highlight the thickness of the lips, but if you prefer the matte finish play with two shades to create that volume.
