Follow this simple, step-by-step guide for plumped up lips in a flash.
Want to know how to make your lips look bigger with minimal effort? Sure you do. We show you how to work your magic with make-up to create the illusion of a full, youthful-looking pout.

1. Moisturise with a luxurious balm

Start the process with a hydrating lip balm to plump up your pout and create a smooth base for the lip-enhancing products to follow.

2. Outline your lips with a concealer

This will help define your lips, making them pop out more to create the illusion of fuller lips.

3. Apply Highlighter To Your Cupid’s Bow

You might be familiar with the beauty-enhancing benefits of highlighter for your cheekbones but did you know that it works wonders for your lips too? Adding a little highlighter to your Cupid’s bow – the dip above your upper lip – will instantly make them appear bigger, thanks to its light-reflecting effects.

4. Line And Fill With A Lip Pencil

One of the easiest ways to make your lips look bigger is to line them with a lip pencil. Pick a liner one or two shades darker than your natural lip colour, and apply it just outside the natural line of your lips (be careful not to overdo it, you want to keep the look natural). Once the outline is done, fill your entire lip area with the pencil.

5. Apply A Highlighter to the centre of your lips

To further enhance your lips and add dimension, dust the centre of both lips with a highlighter.

6. Use A Nude Lip Gloss

Finish off with a slick of nude or pale-pink gloss. Lighter shades are preferable to darker ones, which tend to make lips appear smaller. Alternatively, apply the gloss to the centre of your lips only, for an attractive lip-highlighting effect.
