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 look, so women try to achieve visual enlargement 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 makeup techniques and cosmetics to use.

Cosmetics

A colorless lip base increases the durability of lipstick, evens out skin texture, and fills in cracks that take away volume. Bright colors 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 a plump lip effect. This life hack was popularized by the owner of the cosmetics brand Kylie Jenner.

Another product that everyone should have in their makeup bag is gloss. One drop of it will be enough to make your lips look bigger. Instead of the product, you can use a highlighter, which will give the effect of highlighting the lips.

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.

When choosing a lipstick, you should focus on the glossy effect

Techniques

Using a pencil to draw the lip contour is a technique that is very old. However, the natural result looks only from a distance. To avoid being "busted," you need to mask the natural boundaries of the lips with concealer, and then outline the wider ones with a pencil. It is important not to overdo it, 2-3 millimeters wider will be enough.

A gloss in the center will make your lips look twice as lush. This life hack works even if you don't wear lipstick. A highlighter above the upper lip will visually "lift" it.

You can buy special cosmetic products with a volume effect

Create a fuller lip with an ombre effect. Apply a darker lipstick along the contour and a lighter shade in the center. Blend the boundaries between the two colors 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.
