How do I make my lips look plumper and fuller?


Hydration equals maximum lippage


Drinking enough water and properly moisturising the lips are the first steps to a plump pout. How much water should you be drinking daily? About 3 litres (13 cups) for men and 2.2 litres (9 cups) for women.

Not ready to commit to that much? Pick up a reusable water bottle. Splurge on something aesthetically pleasing that you'll enjoy carrying daily, and refill it as often as possible. If you love your water bottle, you’ll want to keep it by your side, and you’ll wind up drinking more water.

A good, solid hydrating lip balm is also a must for full lips. Just as the face loses volume when it lacks adequate hydration, so do the lips. Short of surgery, keeping lips moist 24/7 is the best way to ensure peak plumpness without any additional products that may irritate the lips.

Check out some of our lip balm options for beautifully hydrated lips. For an additional boost, choose a formula containing peptides, such as HydroPeptide Perfecting Gloss.

Try out some plumping products


In the short term, lip-plumping glosses and balms can provide a fuller lip. These products often contain ingredients such as cinnamon, peppermint, and capsicum from hot peppers. These products temporarily fatten the lips by increasing blood flow to the area. Perfect for a hot date or special appearance.

While products such as DuWop Lip Venom – 2nd Sin are effective in the short term, they can also be irritating. Lip plumpers work by stimulating the lip tissue, which can be uncomfortable for some. Luckily, there are other ways to give the lips a fuller appearance if you’d rather not deal with the tingling sensation.

 

Cosmetic lip-plumping techniques


For some, plumping products are too harsh, and hydration may not do enough to give a full, sexy lip. Luckily, you can achieve the appearance of a fuller lip with cosmetics and without the tingle!

Lining the lips just outside the natural lip line is an easy way to give the lips a fuller appearance. Use a liner, such as Jane Iredale Lip Definer, that matches your natural lip colour.

Line just outside the natural lip line, shading out a little further on the Cupid’s bow and the centre of the bottom lip. This draws the eye to the centre of the mouth and makes lips appear fuller when your lip colour is applied.

Another technique used by the pros is to dab a slightly lighter shade of lipstick or a gloss over your regular lip colour. This highlights the centre of the lips, the largest part.

So there you have it! There’s an option for everyone. Now go rock that plump pout, girl!
