There is something about full lips that looks so luscious and kissable. Is that why men (and women) go gaga over plump bee stung lips like that of Angelina Jolie. She seems to be the ideal for lips that everyone strives for. Well, I don’t but that’s me 🙂
Still, here’s a tip to help you fake that full lipped look with makeup instead of using collagen injections which are painful and can go horribly wrong as numerous celebs have shown us.
You just need a couple of items which you will already have in your stash:-
- Lip balm
- Lip gloss
I have used Stage Wondergloss in Penelope and I Nuovi lipstick in Lush. But you can use anything you currently own. And here’s how you do it 🙂
How to fake full pouty lips with makeup:-
- Apply a layer of lip balm on your bare lips.
- Apply lip gloss in the center of your lips and blend outwards
- Using a lip brush, apply lipstick only on the outer edges of your lips by the sides – the 4 outer corners of your lips and blend.
- Dot some lipgloss in the center of your lips
This was a tip shared by Joyce the senior makeup artist at Estee Lauder at the Estee Lauder Beauty Gossip event which is currently ongoing at MidValley Megamall.
Did it work? Do I look like I’m puckering up my lips? Speaking of which “pucker up your lips” always makes me think of one of my favourite Disney characters – Sebastian from The Little Mermaid.
You know the scene where he’s trying to tell Ariel how to go about kissing the Prince? “You gotta bat your lashes like this. Your gotta pucker up your lips like this!” Cracks me up every time 🙂
I think the reason why they suggest you only apply lipstick on the outer corners of your lips is to create light and dark like in art. Lighter parts (with lipgloss) look higher and thus more pouty. Darker more matte sections (with lipstick) create depth. So, put it all together and you should get lips that look lush and pouty and puckered up “like this” *makes pouty face* Did it? 🙂
Incidentally, this little tip for lush full lips that I just showed you is not part of the tips you’ll learn. I’ll call it a bonus tip for you 😉 There are 12 other tips you can learn though and I’ll share some of my favourites in upcoming posts because well… its good to share isn’t it? 😀

I love Sebastian! He’s got the sexiest lips in cartoon! 🙂 hahahha I can’t wait to read more of your tips!
Yay! He’s certainly one of the most endearing characters Disney has come up with 🙂 I’ll try to share more tips as we go 😀
If you eat chilis, esp the super pedas one, you’ll get that puckering effects too on the lips…
Hey Lemon, you are absolutely right! 😀 That might be even more “natural” eh? 😉
I don’t think I’d like to have Angelina’s lips. *lol* I know a few guys who think they look pretty ‘ugh’ 😀 Sebastian is always one of my most favourite Disney cartoon characters.
Yeah so many people love her lips but I guess it would look a bit off on my face haha 😀
thanks for the tips, would try it once of this day myself.. hehe..
Hope it works!
Hey Paris! I don’t fancy Angelina Jolie’s lips either. I think Charlize Theron and the beautiful tall blonde in Grey’s Anatomy (shoot, both her names escape me now) have nice mouths 😀
Anyway, I have a question for you: “How do you know if a toner works for you?” I was just examining my face this morning (after nearly 4 months of not doing so) and I notice that it’s getting a bit dry.
I’ve used Clarins (feels like plain water), Artistry (a bit tingly but OK), Clinique (too drying) and now Lancome Rehydrating, which seems OK too. But I’ve been moving from a really dry China to humid Malaysia and am just now getting my pre-natal hormones under control.
Since the Lancome is gonna finish soon, I’m divided between getting another bottle or trying a new brand. As you can see, I’m a basket case LOL
I need help! 😀
Hey Kitty! You know what? I don’t believe in “toners”. I shared my views previously on whether toners are necessary and at that time I did not use any. I still don’t use toners in the “toning” sense but I use it to add moisture in the Japanese/Asian skincare sense. So for now, I’m only using the Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing lotion which works great at keeping my skin supple. You could give that a shot to get some moisture back into your skin 🙂 I’m already halfway through mine as its the only one I’m using.
I agree with you too about the “toning” sense which is why I went for Lancome. I’ve just got back with some Clinique cleanser, sunblock (I’ve got freckles!) and #2 Clarifying Lotion.
I’m really skeptical about the #2 because I used it before and hated how dry it is. Anyway, the Senior Consultant said that if they don’t work, I can bring them back to her to change for another that would. Let’s see…
