Before everyone throws their hands in the air and goes crazy, I did not get my lips done – or did I?
I do use a technique that I have seen on various beauty blogs that gives the illusion of fuller lips. This technique is simple, and can be used for everyday or when wearing strong pigmented lipstick.
I don’t use this technique everyday. I normally use it when I’m wearing a bright lipstick and that is usually when I go out for drinks or to a birthday party.
What you will need for this fake lip augmentation:
Lip balm – It is really important that your lips are smooth and moisturised. Chapped lips and lipstick is not attractive. I apply my lip balm about ten minutes before I start, giving it enough time to set into my lips.

A lip liner – I use a nude lip liner as I end up going over it with the lipstick anyway. It is cost effective and I have too many lipsticks to find the matching lip liner for all of them.

Lip stick – Use any colour you want! For everyday you can use a neutral colour but for going out – be brave and try something fierce!

OK! After you have let your lip balm set in for about ten minutes, you grab your nude lip liner and outline the shape of your lips. Start from the middle and work your way out.
Begin to outline above your real lip line to create a new one with the lip liner. Essentially, you are drawing on new lips. I normally prefer to do just the top.
Once you’re done with the outline, apply your choice of lipstick and you should appear to have fuller lips – surgery free!
One of my favourite beauty blogs is The Beauty Department. They also have instructions on how to create fuller lips and I’ll post the link below for you to check it out!
