Having full lips can make you look younger and more attractive, but some people don’t have the good fortune of having full lips and others notice that their lips get thinner as they age. Fortunately there are ways to get fuller looking lips. Keep reading to learn more.
There are a number of makeup tricks that can make your lips look a little fuller. Try the following:
- Exfoliate your lips: Dead skin can make your lips look thinner and older. Gently exfoliate them every once in awhile to give them a smooth, youthful appearance.
- Switch your lipstick color: Darker colors are slimming, which can be advantageous if you want to look thinner, but if you want your lips to look full, using light shades of lipstick instead of darker shades may be a better option. Try a nude or light pink shade of lipstick or swap your lipstick for lip gloss for a shiny, full, natural look.
- Use concealer to make larger canvas: Cover your lips with concealer or foundation and then use lip liner to outline just outside the edge of your lips. Fill in your lips with a color that matches the liner to create a slightly fuller end result.
If you’d like long-term results, lip augmentation is one of your best options. Lip augmentation can be done with either natural or synthetic fillers depending on your personal preference and appearance. Dr. Malamet can help you make a decision that is best for you. In some cases, fat can be removed from other areas of your body and injected back into your lips to create the desired effect.
The procedure usually takes less than an hour and patients can return to normal activities later the same day. Results will be visible immediately and they’ll continue to improve as your lips heal. Some patients will be happy with the results after one treatment, while others will prefer multiple injections. The results can last for up to a year depending on the filler you choose. If you’d like to learn more about your options schedule a consultation with Dr. Malamet.
