Getting your glam on has never been easier. We adore full lips, but not always the trip to the aesthetician. That’s why Wed Mayhem asked licensed esthetician Judy Porter with Blush Now how to get plump lips using makeup rather than injection. When it comes to pumping up your lips, we have the tips and tricks for you! Get ready because with these seven easy makeup steps, you’ll have plump, luscious, and full lips in no time. Follow along with our tutorial if you need a visual reference.
Prime: Apply lip scrub
To kick off your full lip tutorial, begin with a lip scrub to make sure that your lips are as smooth as possible. We use The Soap Shop lip scrub. The best part about this lip scrub is that you can eat it too! Apply the scrub in a circular motion onto the lips. Shop the product HERE.
Extend Lip: Apply lip pencil
Let the business begin! Starting at the outside corners and going in, stay on your natural lip line as you trace the corners. It can be easier to use the flat side of your pencil rather than the pointy side when tracing the corners of your lip. As you approach the middle of your lip begin to overline the edge of your lip and the space above your lip by a small amount. Try to go just above the vermilion so it stays in the realm of believability. Finally, connect this back to the natural lip line. We use the Charlotte Tilbury lip pencil in the color pillow talk.

Plump: Apply Contour Colors
Choose a light shade and a slightly darker shade lip contour. Begin with the darker shade, and line the outside corners of your lips. Make sure to stop when you get close to the middle of your lip. Next, go in with your lighter color lip contour and focus the color on the middle of the lip. Paint the contour onto the whole middle of the lip. This will create a “pout” like appearance. We use the Aethetica Contour Lip Palette. Shop the product HERE
With that, you should have plump, full, glamorous lips ready for your next outing. Practice makes perfect so if your lips didn’t turn out how you wanted the first time around, keep practicing. You’ll have the best lips in town!
