No Photoshop: life hacks to make your lips look bigger with make-up
The flood of influencers showing off their lush lips has led many to go to Google to find out how to make them bigger without injections. Plump lips add femininity and sensuality to the image, so girls try to achieve a visual increase with makeup.
A contour and gradient, like the Kardashian-Jenner sisters, is a popular way to "puff up" the lips, but there are other tricks. OBOZREVATEL tells you what make-up techniques and cosmetics to use.
A colourless lip base increases the durability of lipstick, evens out skin texture and fills in cracks that take away volume. Bright colours attract attention and visually enlarge the lips. The choice of shades should be made carefully, as dark lipsticks with a cold undertone make the lips look smaller.
Using a pencil and even slightly going beyond the contour is another technique to create the effect of plump lips. This life hack was popularised by the owner of the cosmetics brand Kylie Jenner.
Another product that should be in everyone's make-up bag is gloss. One drop of glossy gloss will be enough to make your lips look bigger. Instead of this product, you can use a highlighter, which will give the effect of highlighting the lips.
A gloss plumper is a new product on the market that really enhances lips. The plumper contains menthol, cinnamon or ginger, which stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. After applying the gloss plumper, you usually feel a slight tingling sensation.
Using a pencil to follow the contour of the lips is a technique that is very old. However, the result looks natural only from a distance. To avoid being caught out, you need to disguise the natural boundaries of your lips with concealer and then draw a wider line with a pencil. It is important not to overdo it, 2-3 millimetres wider will be enough.
A gloss in the centre will make your lips look twice as lush. This life hack works even if you don't wear lipstick. A highlighter over the upper lip will visually "lift" it.
Make your lips look more voluminous with an ombre effect. Apply a darker lipstick along the contour and a lighter shade in the centre. Blend the boundaries between the two colours with a brush or your fingertips.
Avoid a matte texture if you want to add volume to your lips. Especially when using rich and bright lipsticks.
