Do you want plump up lips just like celebrities? Well, many of us love the voluminous pouts of some celebrities as they exude sexiness and femininity. So who wouldn’t want to have gorgeous lips?
Just think about how many celebrities walk on red carpet, putting their perfect pout on display. If you are interested in plumping up your lips, this article is more than perfect. You too can get soft, beautiful lips, resorting to a couple of clever tricks.
All you have to do is give our suggestions a try and convince yourself of how efficiently they are.
Clever tricks to follow include:
#1 Petroleum jelly/honey in the shower
If you have always wanted to have plump lips, you can give this clever trick a try. Right before you take a shower, make sure to take some petroleum jelly or organic honey and apply it on your lips. Distribute it evenly on both lips and then enter into the shower. Do not cleanse it off your lips while you are in the shower, as the whole purpose is to take advantage of the steam. This will help the petroleum jelly or honey to penetrate your lips, thus giving them a soft and plumped up appearance.
#2 Exfoliating mix
While this might sound like a strange thing to hear, the truth is that your lips require exfoliation as well as the rest of the skin. While there are not many products out there that you can use as lip exfoliators, you can try a homemade exfoliating mix. All you have to do is mix a little bit of honey with brown sugar and then apply the resulting mixture on your lips. Perform a gentle massage, to exfoliate your lips properly and, after a couple of minutes, rinse it off with lukewarm water. Apply your regular lip balm and enjoy the healthy, plumped-up aspect of your lips.
#3 Cinnamon oil
How to plump your lips? Well, this is a question that many people are trying to find an answer to. The truth is that there are many natural remedies that can be used, including cinnamon oil. This substance is best applied to the lips in a small quantity or diluted in a little bit of water, as it can be quite irritating. However, it is this irritating effect that will allow your lips to look fantastic and all plumped up. In general, it is recommended to apply such natural remedies twice per day, enjoying their plumping properties.
Amazingly enough, you can use makeup to create a plump-like effect on your lips. All you have to do is take gold or silver-coloured eyeshadow and apply it on the cupid’s bow, using a small lip brush. This ingenious application will reflect natural light and add fullness to your lips. If you want to enhance your lips even further, then apply tan-coloured eyeshadow to the bottom lip. Everyone will ask you what you have used on your lips, to make them look so full and amazing.
#5 Homemade lip serum
You can easily plump your lips by trying a homemade lip serum. This will moisturize and nourish your lips, making them appear fuller than they are. To prepare a homemade lip serum, you will require honey and olive oil. You can also prepare a similar serum by mixing aloe with coconut oil. Once mixed, be sure to apply the serum on your lips. You should maintain the serum on the lips for about ten minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water. The results of the application are going to be visible for a couple of days.
#6 Tinted lip plumper
The best lip plumper is the one that adds both fullness and colour to your lips. If you want everyone to be impressed with your beautiful pout, you have to use a tinted lip plumper. This will help your lips to look full and sexy at the same time, without any additional problems to worry about. Did you know that you can prepare a lip plumper in the comfort of your home? All you have to do is melt coconut oil and beeswax together. Then, add a little bit of your favorite lipstick into the mix. Pour the resulting balm into a jar and allow it to cool before applying it to your lips.
These are some of the best ways in which you can get gorgeous, soft and plumped-up lips. As you have seen, you will need to exfoliate your lips on a regular basis and resort to natural remedies, as these deliver the best results, without any side-effects to worry about.
