With so many lip plumpers on the market today, it can be difficult for women to make a decision on what lip plumper they choose to use. We all want fuller, more youthful lips, so what products out there should you choose to achieve this look?
You have a couple of different options when it comes to lip plumpers. There are natural lip plumpers that use natural ingredients to help cause your lips to “swell” and appear fuller. These usually contain certain spices that will cause our skin to react, such as ginger, cinnamon, and spiced oils.The issue that some women have with these products is that they can be somewhat irritating and uncomfortable, however these plumpers do last longer and they are typically less expensive that chemical lip plumpers.
TIP: If you do choose a natural lip plumper, do expect to refresh the plumping product frequently throughout the day to help maintain your pout.
The other kind of plumping product, as mentioned above, contains more chemical products such as hyaluronic acid and marine collagen. These products often also contain peptides to help give you that sustained pout throughout the entire day. This type of lip plumper is just as effective as the natural plumpers, but you won’t notice a tingling or uncomfortable sensation when applied.
For both natural and chemical lip plumpers, there are certain elements that you should be on the look out for when selecting a quality product. Some things that you want to make sure that your plumping product has include:
Hydration. You want to make sure that your lip plumper will be able to keep your lips moisturized.
Fine line reduction. A lot of lip plumping products are sensitive to the fact that a lot of women have fine lines starting as early as their 30s, so they will help prevent the appearance of vertical lies on your lips.
The right color. Some plumping products are tailored to match your favorite shade of lipstick, or you can even choose a lipstick that already has lip plumping elements in it.
How you apply your makeup each and every day can also greatly enhance the appearance of your pout. One quick and easy trick is to take your lip liner and draw the line around the outside of your lips rather than on your actual lip line. Now fill in your lips with your favorite shade of lipstick and you will instantly appear to have fuller lips.
Another trick is to apply your usual shade of lipstick, and then to add a dab of lighter colored gloss or frosted lipstick to the center of your lips. Blend it in so that it appears natural, and you will give your lips that natural look of appearing fuller and softer without even having to use a plumping product.
TIP: Try to avoid any products out there that are made to create a “suction” effect on your lips to make them appear plumper. Though this will work in the short run, within 30 to 60 minutes your lips will shrink back to their normal size.
