Simple Steps For Luscious Lips
By James Lunden
Some women are blessed with full and plump lips, while others, sadly, are not. You don't have to be satisfied with a pencil thin line for your mouth. If you've been longing for a nice pouty and full smile, there is help for you.
Obviously, cosmetic surgery is the most permanent and longest lasting result. The procedure adds fat to your lips, making them larger and fuller. The results, however are permanent and while they don't require maintenance, if you don't like the results, you have no recourse.
You could also try creating new lip lines with permanent make up. This procedure can also give you permanent colour, as it is, in fact, tattooing lip lines and colour to your lips.
Then, of-course, there's collagen injections which will increase the fullness of your lips. Collagen injections are usually less expensive than permanent solutions, and the end look is quite dramatic. Collagen, however, must be redone every few weeks to maintain the appearance. Many women try collagen to test out the full look before committing to a permanent procedure.
If you don't wish to undergo any procedures or change your natural lip structure, there are some cosmetic products that can give your lips the appearance of natural fullness.
Lip liner is great for drawing on your own set of lips. Apply foundation directly onto your lips and then line the lips just outside your natural lip line. Colour in the lips with a coordinating colour, slightly lighter than the liner. This takes a little practice, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be impressed with the results. Make sure to carry extra liner and lipstick with you to retouch your lips throughout the day.
One of the latest advancements in cosmetics is lip gloss that actually plumps your lips. You can feel the tingling sensation of the plumping lip gloss as soon as you put it on. The active ingredients stimulate your lips, and used regularly, will give you a fuller, more glamourous smile.
