Perfect Pout: How To Make Your Lips Look Bigger

Over the years, readers have asked me here and there whether I’ve ever done anything to ‘enhance’ my lips – and the answer is yes! Though not in the way you might think… I have learned tons of tips and tricks from makeup artists and other women in the entertainment biz for creating fuller, poutier looking lips – without the injections. Read my tips below!

Drink Up
My first secret to bigger looking lips might cause an eye roll or two, but bear with me. You always hear this, but hydration is literally the fountain of youth (sorry about the pun). It keeps your skin looking plumper, smoother, and younger – including on your lips. Ever have dry, crackly lips from being dehydrated? The skin on your lips has actually shriveled a bit from dryness in that instance. Drink lots of water and herbal tea throughout the day for benefits all around, but this is the foundation for plump lips. Keep a cute water bottle next do your desk all day, and download a water app that sends you notifications to remember to drink!


 

Lip Masks
Not only do you need hydration from within, but adding hydration topically is the second step to bigger lips. I’m sure you guys have seen these fun masks floating around social media these days, and they’re not only hilarious but really work wonders on your lips. Not only are they super hydrating, but they add other ingredients like collagen, vitamins and enzymes that naturally plump up your lips. I love doing these the morning before a shoot to boost my confidence a bit.


 

Lip Scrubs
In order to have a good canvas for absorbing these lip-plumping ingredients, you’ll need to exfoliate your lips every now and then to remove any dead skin cells. Your lip masks will be more effective, and you’ll love the way lipsticks and glosses sit on your lips after exfoliating. Shop some of my favorites here.


 

Invest In The Right Makeup
Find a lip liner, lipstick and gloss that match and enhance your natural lip color. Line the lip right to the edge, of not slightly over, where your lip meets your skin, and then line inside and color in the entire lip. The effect is amazing! Plus it will help your lipstick stay put all day. Gloss gives the impression of even bigger lips because the shine catches the light – this combination is my go-to for faking a bigger pout.


 

Love What You’ve Got!
And lastly, work with what you naturally have. We get bombarded all day long with images on social media of the ‘perfect’ lips, so it’s easy to get down on yourself from time to time if you feel that you don’t match up. Believe it or not, some people look better with smaller lips! Confidence is more attractive than anything else, so take care of your lips with the tricks above, and pucker up!

  • #ad Ok so this one’s for my Mum-bosses and Girl-bosses out there. Real talk. Do you guys ever feel like you’re spinning a gazillion plates in the air at once?! I have got the busiest week of all time ahead – not that I’m complaining – but I feel like I need to be more organized than ever nowadays, running a business and being a mummy at the same time. And when it’s that time of the month, not only do I cry at the drop of a hat (anyone else get teary watching a cute commercial?) but it used to be easy to let that slow me down. So, I’ve partnered with @Always_brand, (I love their Infinity pad which has a thin and flexible design so you’ll forget you’re wearing a pad), to have an open dialogue with you guys about how women can navigate through it all. What are some of the tricks, tips, products and apps you use to stay on track? #AlwaysAmbassador #ShapeMyInfinity

  • #ad Since having Honor, I feel like I’ve grown even closer to you guys. My followers have got to be the most loyal, kind and hilarious group of women ever. Nothing is off limits, and we talk about all sorts! So I’m getting personal today, and opening up about one thing that happens after birth that none of my mum friends, nor I, knew about. Pads! Yep…I’m going there. If there’s one thing you don’t want to worry about as an exhausted new mom it’s your period. So I’m partnering with @Always_brand to talk about my personal story, and the ways in which products like Always Infinity pads (with zero feel protection) can solve your new mum, after-birth worries, (and help you go about your crazy days).
