While we have Kylie Jenner to thank for the fabulous lip obsession, we cannot all be blessed with Angelina Jolie’s natural showstopper pout. But now it is easier than ever to plump up your lips! With the right products and makeup application you can go from drab to fab in a matter of seconds. Check out these tips on how to get the perfect lips every day.

First: Plump

The process of plumping your lips should be your new best friend. Do not be alarmed, but this means causing your lips to swell–in a good way though.

There are many ways you can do this. For a natural approach, add peppermint or cinnamon oil to any of your pre-existing lip balms or glosses. Both oils cause a tingly sensation that activates the blood flow in your lips, which causes them to appear fuller.

You can also purchase a variety of lip plump products from any makeup brand. No matter what method you choose, you must remember to apply consistently for the best results.

Second: Lipstick Application

When it comes time to apply your lipstick, remember to pay close attention to detail. You should always start with a lip liner to outline your lips and make them pop. If you want, you can fill in your lips completely with lip liner and then place your lipstick on top. Remember to never pair a dark liner with a light lip color because this makes it difficult to blend your lipstick in naturally.

Do not forget how versatile lipstick colors can be! You mix multiple shades together until you find the perfect one. Add a gloss on top for extra shine and you’re ready to go!
