Valentine’s Day is only a month away, which means you’re probably putting together those special plans for that special someone. Candlelit dinner at your favorite restaurant? Check. Sunset stroll? Check. Box of chocolates. Check. Perfect Lips? Hmmmmmm…
If you’re planning to smooch smooch smooch this Valentines, we’ve put together a few tips for getting those puckers big and ready just in time for Valentine’s Day:
- Use make-up.
Pick lipsticks that match your your skin tone. Lighter shades really beef up your pout, so stick to your favorite pastels. Begin by covering the entire surface of your lips, then lining your lips in a slightly darker shade. Complete the look by applying gloss for added shine and undeniable oomph!
Pro tip: Use a concealer to fake a larger canvas while overdrawing your lip line. By tracing your lip liner slightly outside your natural lip line, you can achieve a fuller look.
- Massage your lips.
Choose an all-natural essential oil you like – peppermint, capsicum, or cinnamon all work well. By gently massaging the oil into your lips for 5 to 10 minutes, you can improve blood circulation, while increasing the overall volume of your lips. If your lips swell slightly or take on a reddish tint, don’t fret! None of these oils are harmful to your skin. In fact, there’s a good chance your lips will feel cooler and more refreshed than ever before.
- Lip exercises every day.
Just like any part of your body, the best way to boost the look and feel of your lips, is to work ‘em out. For fuller lips, devote 10 minutes a date to lip exercises, and you’ll see results within 1 to 2 months. Lip exercises not only help plump your lips, but they also tone the surrounding facial skin. Say goodbye to double chins!
So what are the best exercises? Easy! All you have to do is whistle, smile, and kiss. Just by doing these three actions (or imitating them) for 10 minutes a day, you will see a noticeable improvement in the size and elasticity of your lips. We told you it was easy!
- Invest in lip-plumping products.
There are many types lip-plumping products you can use to boost your pout, such as balms, gels, glosses, pots, and sticks. Experiment with all of them until you find the one for you.
These types of products give your lips a temporary boost, by irritating them (in a healthy way). While the effect only lasts for a couple of hours, you can easily refresh it by reapplying the products.
- Get lip fillers.
If you’re looking for a semi-permanent solution, why not try lip fillers? Lip fillers are a simple procedure involving injectable cosmetic or facial fillers that help increase the volume of your lips. The best part: you can say goodbye to temporary lip products, and enjoy a gorgeous grin for life. Get started by researching a trusted medical spa in your area. Keep an eye out for positive reviews when making your choice.
