Plumper One of the easiest ways to plump up thin lips is to use a lip plumper. There are lots of different brands available to suit all budgets. They work by irritating the skin and making it swell up, but if they sting too much then they are best avoided. Liner Be subtle (and careful) when lining your lips. Using your lip pencil, draw just outside your natural lip line in light feathery strokes. This will give you that little bit extra fullness without looking like a clown.
Moisturise Your skin needs to be moisturised in order to plump it up, and your lips are no exception. Just look at the difference when your hands are dry, and when you’ve just applied hand cream. Moisturised skin looks so much better! So don’t neglect your lips – use a plain lotion to keep them in great condition and help them look fuller.
Exfoliate Your lips should be included in your exfoliation routine, but don’t use your normal scrub on them. This will probably be too harsh. There’s a much simpler and kinder way to get rid of the dead skin – gently rub them with a soft toothbrush. Then use moisturiser.
Then, a lick of your favourite lipstick, blot, apply again then gloss. VOILA......Ready for anything!!
