Lip plumping has become the latest aesthetic trend, and everyone loves trying hacks to make their pout appear fuller, especially without expensive and invasive fillers or surgery. Unfortunately, none of these techniques make for long-term plump lips.
Using some pretty simple makeup techniques and affordable drugstore treatments that pretty much anyone can do. Basically, you just have to over-line, exfoliate, and use your concealer like a pro – then, top it all off with a little swipe of lip-plumping gloss. Easy!
Best Ways To Plump Your Lips Naturally
Here is the list of the top 7 ways to plump your lips naturally at home
1- A DIY treatment: Cayenne pepper + olive oil
If makeup doesn’t do the trick, you can start with this natural and tingly lip plumper — using only a few ingredients found in your kitchen.
Mix a few sprinkles of cayenne pepper with a tablespoon of olive oil.
Gently place the mixture on your lips and leave on for a few minutes before wiping it off completely and moisturizing with your favorite lip balm.
Though these results won’t last long, this is a great solution to snap a quick selfie or for a night out.
For people who are more sensitive, a simple sugar scrub can also smooth out chapped lips and get them blushing.
2- Cinnamon Honey And Sugar Lip Scrub
Cinnamon has natural components which are irritants, so applying it causes lips to swell slightly. That’s why it’s often added to lip plumping products like glosses and lipsticks. You can also use it to slightly plump your lips, with the help of humectant honey, which also hydrates and slightly plumps skin.
What you need to do is mix a pinch of cinnamon with half a teaspoon of honey, a few drops of coconut oil, and small-grain sugar. Remember to ensure that the sugar crystals are small, like the grains in sugar cubes, or the ones you get in sachets at coffee shops, not the large white sugar crystals we have at home. Mix these ingredients together, and then massage it over your lips in a firm but gentle way. The trick is to do it for a while, but without scrubbing too vigorously. This will smoothen your lips, and it will slightly plump them up too.
This is step number one and it’s so important. Before you try any other hacks, exfoliate your lips first. Flaky lips reflect less light, which means, a dry pucker could be making your lips look smaller than they actually are. To get rid of flakes, brush them lightly with a toothbrush. This also boosts circulation, giving you a rosy tint sans makeup.
If you want to get professional with your exfoliation game, get yourself a hydrating sugar lip scrub that really smooths. Yes, it’s another step to add to your skincare routine, but trust me, it’s soooo worth it.
Have you ever noticed that when you forget your Hydro Flask at home, your lips look really freaking small by the end of the day? When your body is dehydrated, your lips literally shrivel up and disappear. Make sure to drink lots of water – which, btw, is just a good life choice in general – to bring out your most luscious lippies naturally (and for free).
5-Peppermint Oil Mixed With Lip Balm
Peppermint oil is cooling, yes, but it’s also another natural irritant that can cause swelling. When you combine it with an emollient and apply it, it can help add plumpness to your pout. So, mix a drop of peppermint oil in your lip balm, and apply it on your lips. It will lead to a fuller-looking mouth, and will give a minty, cold sensation. Be careful not to use too much peppermint oil though, because essential oils can cause chemical burns on the skin, and are not meant to be applied directly, so always use it with a lip balm.
5-The Four Ingredients Plumper
This plumper has a quick reaction on your lips because it consists of four “super” ingredients. Mix ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder with equal parts of cinnamon and ginger powder.
Add several drops of peppermint oil and stir evenly. Pour 1 teaspoon of almond oil and mix. Apply on the lips, massage in a circular motion for a minute, and let it sits for three minutes.
6-Plumper Lip Gloss
This simple recipe gives your liquid lip gloss the ability to plump your lips a little. Mix several drops of peppermint oil into a bottle of liquid gloss.
Alternatively, pour the lip gloss onto a small plate before adding peppermint oil. You will see the result on your lips after every gloss application.
7-Use Clean Lipsticks And Liner
Preventing sun damage, boosting moisture, and using essential oils are all great ways to plump your lips naturally, but if you are looking for fuller lips immediately, use makeup to create the illusion. Use a lip liner that is one to two shades darker than your natural lip color, before applying lipstick, slightly overdrawing your lips. (Meaning trace just outside your natural lip line, no further or else it can look cartoonish.) Next, use a lipstick that is near your natural hue to fill out your pout. Darker colors tend to make your lips appear flat. Finish by applying clear lip gloss to the center of your lips. This will reflect light and create a fuller-looking lip.
Natural lip plumper is how to get bigger lips naturally without paying too much or putting on irritating chemicals.
