How To Make Your Lips Look Bigger

Big lips have been the craze since the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge (stupid and harmful.) But you don't need to suck on a shots glass in order to get fuller looking lips. So get your concealer/highlighter, contour and lip liner. And let's get big lips without the harm!

1. Highlight your cupids bow and outline of your top lip.
I used Real Techniques 'Accent Brush' with a bit of concealer. Follow the sides of your cupids bow. Then, I put concealer on my top lip. I just blend it out with my finger.

2. Contour the center of you cupid's bow and under your bottom lip.
I used a cream bronzer from Seventeen with a flat brush. I put a *tiny* bit of the product on the middle of the cupids to give the illusion of a more defined cupid's bow. Then, I use the same brush and contour product and I add a shadow effect under my bottom lip, making your bottom lip look larger.

3. Follow your natural lip liner and line using a desired lip liner.
I used a MAC lip liner in Whirl, and lined my lips, starting from the outer corner of my top lip to make it look fuller. 

4. Now, it's time to overline your lips.
Don't over-do it. I would recommend focusing on overlining the middle of your top and bottom. Scroll to the end for photos if this isn't clear!

5. Add your desired lipstick.
Just apply it all over your lips! I used Clarins in '01'

6. Put a dot of concealer in the center of your lips.
You can either blend it with your finger or use a flat brush. First, I used my finger, then I blended it in more with a flat brush.

7. Finally, add a highlighter to your cupids bow.
I used a shimmery shade out of Barry M's Natural Glow 2 Palette.

*Optional* You can add a gloss over the top for more plumpness!

And voila! Fuller looking lips without needles or any major fuss! The great thing about this method is that if you don't like it, you can simply wipe it off!
