Exfoliate and moisturize your lips

To achieve a fuller lip look, the first step is to exfoliate your lips. Gently scrub your lips with a lip scrub or a gentle exfoliating brush to remove any dry or dead skin cells. After exfoliating, apply a good lip balm or moisturizer to keep your lips hydrated and soft. This will help plump up your lips and give a smoother canvas to work with.

Overline your lips

One of the easiest ways to make your lips appear fuller is by overlining them with a lip liner. Choose a liner that matches your lip color, then start by outlining your lips slightly outside your natural lip line. For a more dramatic effect, you can slightly overline your lips, but be careful not to go overboard and make it too obvious. Blend the liner into your lips by smudging the line with your finger or a brush for a more natural look.

Use a Lip Plumper

Lip plumpers are a popular cosmetic product that can help increase blood flow to the lips, making them appear fuller and more voluminous. Most lip plumpers contain ingredients like cinnamon, peppermint or ginger that cause a tingling sensation on the lips, increasing blood circulation and causing them to plump up. Apply the lip plumper over your lips and let it sit for a few minutes before applying your lipstick.

Choose Lipsticks with a Shiny or Glossy Finish

Choose Lipsticks

When it comes to lipstick, matte shades can make your lips look flat and thin. To create a fuller lip effect, choose lipsticks with a shiny or glossy finish. These types of lip products reflect light, creating an illusion of plump, full lips. Some lipsticks even contain reflective particles or shimmer that help create an extra plumping effect.

Highlight the Cupid’s Bow

Cupid’s Bow is the top part of your upper lip that forms the shape of the letter “M”. Highlighting your Cupid’s Bow can create an illusion of a fuller, accentuated upper lip. Apply a highlighter or a light-colored eyeshadow just above your Cupid’s Bow. This will help attract more light to this area, making your lips appear more prominent.


Achieving fuller and more voluminous lips can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. With these 5 easy tips, you can enhance your natural lip shape and achieve the fuller lip look you desire. Remember to exfoliate, moisturize, overline, use a lip plumper, choose lipsticks with a shiny finish, and highlight your Cupid’s Bow to create the perfect pout. Try incorporating these tips into your makeup routine and watch as your lips transform!
