How To: Make Your Lips Appear Bigger

Fuller, bigger lips are right on trend at the moment (props to Kylie Jenner), and I’m here to show you a step-by-step guide with some tricks to making your lips appear bigger!
The picture on the left is just using the Kate Rimmel lipstick on it’s own, and the photo on the right is the finished result after my step-by-step guide! Without further ado, let’s get started!

Line your lips > A very important step. What I like to do, is draw the outline of my lips a little bigger than they actually are. Once you’ve done that, fill in your lips with the lip pencil.

Apply lipstick > After you’ve filled in your lips, apply your lipstick over it. I’m using Kate Rimmel’s lipstick in 107.
Shadows & Gloss > With any fluffy brush, apply some bronzer under your bottom lip to darken the shadow, creating a fuller lip effect. Adding gloss is optional, but I think it makes a huge difference. Apply a clear gloss, any illuminating or ones that promise ‘fuller’ lips will do. I recommend Soap & Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker gloss.
Highlight > Take some white powder, preferably a highlighting powder. I’m using Elf’s blush in Gotta Glow and again with a fluffy brush, apply a bit to the middle of your lips. You can, of course, do this step before the gloss or instead of gloss – it’s totally up to you!

And you’re finished! Simple as that. There are many different ways to make your lips appear bigger, but I do love to follow these steps as I find them really effective.

  • Another great post, Angela!

    I never thought of putting white powder or eye shadow on the lips before. One thing I like to do is highlight the lines that extend from the top lip to the nose (I'm sure it has a proper name) because it gives that lifting effect.

  • Looks awesome! It's amazing how big her lips do look now though haha. I heard from a model that she sticks her lips in shot glasses and sucks in for about 20-30 seconds and the blood circulation helps her get a bigger pout.
