Plump, Luscious Lips
Do you want plump, juicy lips? Or just fancy changing up your look today? There are so many tricks you can do to emphasis and plump up lips without having to go under the knife. I love how easy it is to play around with lip colour and shape depending on the look you're going for.
Let me share some fun tricks and steps for you to try out.
Firstly, you want to prep the lips. I like to gently exfoliate my lips with a toothbrush and warm water, just to get rid of any dead skin.
Optional step: If you want to really plump up those lips, take a teaspoon of coconut oil and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Mix them together and apply them to lips, this will feel tingly as it brings blood to the surface of the lips, plumping and giving them that just kissed look. Leave the mix on the lips for up to 10 minutes.
As you can imagine, your lips can feel pretty dry after that so I immediately apply a lip balm or serum. My current fave and lip savior is INIKA's organic lip serum.
Use a concealer such as BWCs cream concealer pencil, to line the outside of your lips to give them that super 3D effect 3. Blend the line out so its not too harsh and looks natural.
Line lips with your chosen lip shade. Over line lips if you want them to look even plumper. Using a lip liner gives that clean lip line and longer lasting colour. We recommend PHB's organic lip crayons or Barry M's lip liner.
If you prefer matte lipsticks then I'd recommend blending two lipstick shades. Use a darker liner and lipstick on the outer edges of your lips like a contour, and a lighter shade to use on the higher points like a highlighter. Matte Me Up Lip Paint from Barry M and Zao's certified organic, Matte Lipsticks are my absolute favorites on a daily basis.
Highlight the high points of your lips, so your cupids bow and the middle of your bottom lip to give further definition. There are so many highlighters I love right now, but currently I'm loving this illuminating palette, particularly the shade 'Iced Pink'... it's so pretty!
Optional step: Add a bit of bronzer just under your bottom lip to use like a contour
