TIP #1 Apply a small dab of highlighter to your Cupid’s bow. This subtle shine makes the top of your lip appear more defined and your lips plumper. You can apply it with a fluffy brush or your finger.

TIP #2 Did you know that darker lipstick shades can flatten your lips and make them appear smaller? When you want to fake your way to more volume, apply a nude or lighter shade of lip colour instead. 

TIP #3 How do the make-up artists do it? They overline the lips to give the allusion of a larger pout. Smart! This should be done carefully just over the top and bottom curves of your lips so it doesn’t look fake.

TIP #4 A great way to fake your way to a bigger pout is to apply your lipstick in an ombré with the darker colours in the corners going lighter towards the centre of your lips. Or you can add a dab of highlighter.

TIP #5 Okay, so this one might not *technically* be make-up, but it’s worth noting that there are products available that contain ingredients to temporarily plump your lips so they look juicy for a night out.
