Full lips are a sign of youth and beauty—if you feel like your lips could use a boost, there are plenty of ways to get sexier, fuller lips. Here are a few simple things you can try.

  1. Exfoliate your lips. Dead, flaking skin makes your lips look thinner and older—and it makes it harder to apply makeup. Be gentle and only exfoliate when necessary for healthy, supple lips.
  2. Switch out your lipstick. There is no wrong shade of lipstick, but some shades will make your lips look fuller than others. In general, dark shades of lipstick will make your lips look thinner while light shades will make your lips look fuller. Try switching out your darker lipstick for a light pink or nude color.
  3. Keep your lips moist. Dry lips look thinner and older. Keep your lips looking young by keeping them moist. Keep a lip balm handy throughout the day and consider using lip gloss to make your lips look moist and soft. For added fullness, use a lip balm that contains mint since it will naturally leave your lips a little plumper.
  4. Create a larger canvas for your makeup. This trick takes a little more effort, but it can leave you with larger looking lips. Start by applying foundation or concealer to your lips. This increases the size of your canvas and gives your lipstick something to stick to. Then line your lips just outside your natural lip line. Fill your lips in with lipstick that matches your lip liner and finish the look off with a dab of lip gloss, just in the middle of your lips.
  5. Try lip enhancement. The tips above can help you create the illusion of larger lips, but lip enhancement procedures can actually give you larger lips. At Dr. Bev’s office patients can choose from dermal fillers like Juvederm Ultra and Restylane, fat injections, or grafts. The best procedure for you will depend on a variety of factors, your doctor can help you determine which procedure will give you the results you want.
