Celebrities like Angelina Jolie have made full, pouty lips a beauty trend. Although surgery is available to increase lip volume, not everyone wishes to go down that route. Instead, many women wish to recreate the pouty look at home using makeup and beauty products.
Things You'll Need
Use a store-purchased lip plumping treatment. Lip plumpers are tubes of lipstick that contain ingredients like collagen to enhance the size of lips with prolonged use. They are available in a variety of colors, or simply as a clear lip treatment. There are also plumping glosses that irritate the lips and create an instant swelling effect.
Purchase a lip pump online or from a beauty store. Lip pumps are used by applying a coat of lip conditioner to your lips and then creating a seal around the lips with the pump. The end is then pulled out to pull blood into the lips and create a plumped effect that lasts a number of hours.
Mix cinnamon, peppermint or cayenne pepper with either olive oil or vaseline. Rub the mixture onto your lips for an instant plumping effect. These spices irritate the skin, making lips turn a red color along with swelling.
Create a plump look using just makeup. Start by lining the very edges of your lips with a lip liner slightly darker then your lipstick, and then apply a coat of lipstick across your lips. Follow this by adding a dab of clear lip gloss to the center of your lips to create the illusion of fuller lips.
