Makeup Monday | Quest for Plump Lips – part I

There’s no way around it- I want plumper lips! So, I’m on a quest to achieve the appearance of plump, pouty lips WITHOUT lip injections, because no thanks. So, my first attempt was to just master the illusion with the power of makeup, and more specifically- lipstick. Heres what I did:

step one:
Line your lips with a nude lip liner. I slightly over lined mine and corrected any areas that are not naturally symmetrical on me (like my cupids bow).

step two:
apply your nude lipstick, and blend it in with your lip liner!

step three:
take a darker lip liner now, and pucker up! You are going to draw lines to emphasize where your lips crease. I draw three on top and three on bottom. (see photos 3 & 4)

step four:
blend those darker lines into your lipstick, and you can even add just a light layer on top with the lipstick.

step five:
add a little gloss JUST in the center of the lips.

BOOM! Plump lips!

This was just my first option for having plumper lips. I’ve got plenty more ideas to achieve this look, so stayed tuned for more ideas in the very near future! If you have any ideas for me to try, comment down below!

As always, thanks for reading. Be sure to like and share my post and show me the love!

  1. Have you tried a derma roller? The effects are gradual. I suspect in a couple of years time my lips will be bigger. You have nothing to lose from doing it, but rather gain! 🙂
