Our Guide to Natural Plump Lips

Do you desire soft, plump lips but don’t want to commit to filler? Don’t worry, we have plenty of tips and tricks that you can use to enhance your natural lips! Keep reading to find out more…

Stay Hydrated

We all know how important it is to stay hydrated, but did you know that drinking water can plump up your lips? Research has shown that adequate amounts of water can increase the dermal thickness of the skin, resulting in plump skin all over, including your lips. Experts recommend drinking about 3 litres for men and 2.2 litres for women each day.

Struggling to drink enough water? Purchase a reusable water bottle that you’ll love and want to take everywhere you go! If you constantly have your water bottle by your side, you will wind up drinking more water.

Makeup Tricks

Another way to achieve fuller-looking lips without resorting to fillers is to strategically use makeup to accentuate your natural lip shape. Firstly, you’ll need to put concealer or foundation on top of your lips to blur the line between your lips and face. Next, using a lip liner that matches your natural colour, trace your lips slightly above the border. This will create the illusion that you have larger lips. The next step is to fill the rest of your lips in with a similar-coloured lipstick. We recommend using jane iredale’s Beyond Matte Lip Stain. This rich, long-wearing matte lipstick has been formulated with plant-based oils that condition and protect the lips for a chic, beyond matte look and powerful payoff. The Beyond Matte Lip Stains are designed to last all day long so you can be assured that your luscious lips will stay full all day.

Finally, complete the look with a matching lip gloss. The shimmery product will pick up the light, making your pout appear fuller and healthier.

Hyaluronic Acid

Although some people are born with thin lips, others may lose some of their fullness with age. Just like the skin on our faces, lips lose the capacity to naturally produce hyaluronic acid over time. Along with collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid gives the skin its firmness, fullness, and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water and has the ability to draw water to the surface of the skin where it may be lacking, so it’s no surprise that this is an ideal ingredient for lip plumping!

If you’re worried about the textural characteristics of your face, the hydrophilic properties of GERnétic’s Cells Life Super Hydrating Serum helps to retain water, restructuring the cutaneous tissues. The result is firmer, plumper skin!

Unlike the rest of the face, our lips do not contain oil glands which help combat signs of ageing. This makes the fine lines on our lips stand out, and they will sometimes appear dry and cracked. To make a lasting change on the appearance of your lips, we recommend using jane iredale’s
HydroPure Hyaluronic Acid Lip Gloss. This restorative, pillowy gloss combines lasting hydration with the lip-loving benefits of a balm for fuller, supple lips.
