How to Get Fuller Lips (Without Filler!)

January 18th, 2017

Those of us who weren’t blessed with Gigi Hadid-esque lips will go to great lengths to get them (I should know — I’ve tried it all, including filler.) After years of experimenting, this old theater makeup trick is still the most effective technique I know to make thin lips looks full. This is how Lucille Ball and Grace Kelly did it. I learned it backstage during my acting days and I still use it on Friday nights or any occasion where I want a little extra glamour. The trick to is to use a finely sharpened pencil, and to take great care with creating the illusion. Read on to discover my fuller lips technique (modeled by the lovely Carmen Collins).

  2. Darker shades can make the lips look fuller as well.

    Yes to all of this! Another trick for after you do all the steps above is to ever so gently go around your lips with a dab of concealer. Then, take a little bit of bronzer and blend it in just under the middle of your bottom lip to create a shadow.

    Good tips! I always find using a little bit of highlighter above the cupids bow adding a bit of lift to the upper lip.
