Full, seductive lips have been the rage for quite some time now. Celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johansson have been named as among the world’s most beautiful women because of their statement pouty lips. It comes as no surprise that women of every age search for the answer to this question: How to get plumper lips?
Medical methods such as collagen injections and lip implants are some of the widely used methods for lip plumping. They give you instant fuller lips that stay on for several months. As most medical procedures, however, these are often costly, painful, and may need many sessions for it to take full effect.
Another method on how to get plumper lips is by using a lip plumper. This tool is considerably new in the market yet has already gained acceptance, as it is known to be effective and easy to use. A lip plumper contains ingredients such as peppermint, caffeine, niacin, or cinnamon, which slightly irritates and inflames the sensitive skin on the lips. These ingredients make the blood vessels dilate, increasing the blood flow to the lips. This will in turn make the lips swell and look fuller. It is also safe to use and it helps keep your lips soft and nourished, as it usually has moisturizing ingredients that condition the lips. The most common of these ingredients are honey, aloe Vera, chamomile, olive oil, and almond oil. These elements are all natural and have the ability to nourish and provide moisture to our skin.
You can also opt to use alternative ingredients that have the same plumping effect as the lip plumper. Some examples are the concentrated oil of cinnamon leaf, cayenne pepper or salt and even Niacin (a form of vitamin B3). These stuff increases blood flow to the lips, just like the lip plumper, and it causes a swelling effect, producing a full, red appearance. Caution must be applied in using these, though. These must only be applied in very small amounts and rubbing of the lips must be done gently in order to avoid excessive irritation. In the case of niacin, it must not be applied directly on the lips. Instead, it should be mixed with lip balm so as to avoid extreme irritation.
One might also ask- how to get plumper lips without the use of surgery or a lip plumper? The answer lies in the type of make up that you use and the correct application which can give the illusion of full, pouty lips. Before applying any make up, it is good to exfoliate the lips using a dry toothbrush with soft bristles, or a wet washcloth which when gently rubbed on the lips will remove dry skin cells. Then, apply on your lips a concealer one shade lighter than your skin tone and pat with loose powder to set. Line your lips with a lip liner closest to the shade of your skin, making sure to trace slightly outside your lip line. Glide on a natural color lipstick and then blend carefully with the liner. Finally, apply lip gloss at the center of the bottom lip to create the impression of fuller, noticeably plumper lips.
Whatever the method you choose on how to get plumper lips, it is best to check the safety of your chosen procedure before applying it. It’s also important not to overdo it, or you take the risk of irreparable damage and might get a trout-pout instead. This is not a good sight to look at, trust me.
