Fuller, poutier pouts are all the rage these days and it seems we’re all scrambling for the makeup tricks and products that will fill in what Mother Nature left off — literally. And, while over-lining and investing in fancy lip plumping products are all well and good, sometimes subtle is best (especially if you’re short on time!). Check out our quick trick to getting a plumped-up pout. And when we say quick, we mean QUICK!

Simple Trick for Fuller Lips

Step 1: Swipe on a little lip balm to hydrate your lips and create a smoother canvas.

Step 2: Grab a liquid-based highlighter (these are best, as they make your skin look dewy and

supple) and dab some on your Cupid’s bow. We love L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator. Blend it in well so the skin looks naturally shimmery.

Step 3: Apply a soft pink or peach lip gloss (try Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Berry Chic). The shiny, glossy texture will help make your lips appear fuller and much more plump!
