Want a fuller, plumper smile? We feel you. We hit up celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder for 3 tricks to land the look in less time than it takes to master the perfect selfie pout.
The only look nearly as coveted as the all-over glow is the über-plump pout. Lucky for us, creating gorgeous, healthier-looking lips is totally possible, super simple and doesn’t require an arsenal of products, a team of experts or a trip to the derm. All you need is 60 seconds and these rad makeup tricks from celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder.
- Illuminate. When you’re finished creating your lip look, apply a light-colored gloss over your color to the center of the top lip. This gives the illusion of a fuller lip, says Blunder.
- Highlight. Using your ring finger, dab a touch of highlighter to the cupid’s bow and just beneath the center of your lower lip line. Monika says this easy light-reflecting trick makes a big impact on creating plumper-looking lips.
- Line. Using a sheer, nearly nude Lip Crayon (Jessica loves Chestnut Kiss), circle color just outside the lip line and fill in lips for a naturally full effect.
