If you want fuller lips, collagen isn't the only option.
With a little makeup and a few tricks of the trade, you can achieve a plump pout in seconds.
Makeup artist Lauren Cosenza shares her pro tips for faking fuller lips for day or night:
- Extend lip liner just beyond your natural lip line. To give the illusion of a fuller lip, Lauren recommends using a flesh-colored lip liner that's also a lip stain.
- Apply clear lip gloss to the bottom lip. The light that reflects off the gloss will give the appearance of fullness and dimension.
- Dust highlighter across the cupid's bow. This will enhance the natural shape.
- Opt for ombre. Using a darker lip liner, extend the line just beyond the natural lip. Fill the lip with a brighter shade and blend into lip line. This trendy look is perfect for evening.
