Regardless of whether or not you have full lips, the quest for making your lips look fuller is something that I believe all women go through. And I don't know about you, but I refuse to use plumping lip products because, well, ouch! So I created this quick little tutorial to help those of you on a mission to get fuller lips. It's really quite easy!
This is me, pre-fuller lips. My lips are already pretty fully, but for the sake of this post, I want them to be fuller! But not crazy dramatic full. More like a "grrrl your lips look LUSCIOUS!" kind of full. Ya know?

  1. First things first: time to overdraw your lips. Now, I'm not saying to be over-the-top and overexaggerate your lip line (although, I will not judge you if you do)... Just draw your liner juuuuust outside of your natural lip line. It won't look as fake. I'm using my favorite pink lip liner of all time here.
  2. Once you draw out your lips... Fill them in! I'm not a huge fan of the chola look.
  3. Next, take the lipstick of your choice (which should be the same color as the lip liner you used, but again... you're an adult and are capable of making adult decisions on your own) and fill in your lips. You don't have to be as pretentious as I am in this tutorial by using a lip brush.. You can apply straight from the tube (by the way, I'm using this lipstick in Naked).
  4. Next, I'm taking a slightly darker lipstick to contour my lips (here's my tutorial on contouring lips if you're a bit confused here). You can totally do this with a lip liner instead.
  5. Take a light, shimmery eyeshadow and apply it to the center of your lips. I'm using this eyeshadow.
  6. Apply a light-reflecting or shimmery lip gloss just on the center of your lips. 
And that's it! Boom. Fuller lips. I kept things tame here with a neutral pink lip color, but you could totally do this with a red lip, magenta lip, blue lip... Whatever your heart desires.
