If your lips are on the thin side, you’ve probably tried all kinds of methods to make your pout look fuller. From plumping lip gloss to bold shades of lipstick, you might have given up all hope of volumizing your lips without some kind of unnatural filler. However, The Beauty Department has a great trick to make your lips look bigger in an instant, and it’s not hard to master!
According to the source, all you’ll need is a highlighting lip liner pencil like Too Faced – Luster Liner Pearl Effects Lip Pencil in Tahitian or Akoya, as well as your favorite shade of BABOR – Filling Lip Color.
The idea here is that you’ll use the highlighter to brighten up the top line of your lips, which will bring them forward on your face and make them look larger. Simply use the pencil to trace along the upper line of your lips, including the cupid’s bow. Stretch it from one corner to the other. You should also use the pencil to highlight your philtrum (the two grooves stretching from your nose to the upper points of your lip).
Use your finger to blend the lines so they look natural but aren’t completely faded, then apply your lipstick as usual. Nice, huh?
