Summer is almost here, and we’re ready! Wanna get filler-plumped lips, but you’re too broke to do lip fillers? Easy, not everyone is that much into fillers too, even some freak out on the thought of needles digging down their lips. Today we’ve come with a-z steps to look like you’re fresh out of a lip-filling session! 

LIPS NEED A LOT OF MOISTURE

Make sure the lip balm doesn’t leave your bag. Deep moisturization only can help make lips look better, with literally no effort. You’ll get the best results when you constantly apply your lip balm before sleep. You’ll notice the difference first thing in the morning when you look in the mirror, trust us. Also, if you’re not wearing lipsticks, make sure to apply lip moisturizers at least once every two hours during the day. Remember the memes about girls applying lip gloss or body sprays amidst rising tensions at work? You’ll be literally doing that! And if you’re on the lookout for new lip balms to try, here’re your best shots.

HYDRATION IS THE KEY

Drinking lots of water can never go wrong, as it literally benefits your body in every way possible. If you drink 2-3 liters of water a day, you’re guaranteed to stay away from dry and cracked lips, hence a healthy-looking and plump lips!

AVOID THE MATTE LIPS

Most of the matte lipsticks, no matter what formulas they are made from, suck the lips dry. Wearing these types of lip colors frequently, you’ll have to compensate for the dryness they cause by applying excessive amounts of lip moisturizers and lip treatments. 

LIP LINERS ARE GAME CHANGERS

Did you notice how the lip liners’ trend made a comeback in the recent couple of years? In the late 90’s and early 2000’s, lip liners were staples in every makeup look, but they used to be harsh-looking on the lips. Now, lip liners are used for utterly different purposes. To make your lips look bigger, draw the outer lines with a creamy lip liner, then smudge upwards and downwards. Now you’re almost there! 

GLOSS BABE GLOSS

Remember when Asmaa Galal said Lip Gloss forever…? That’s true! Lip glosses can give you the plump of your dreams. Just apply it over the liner and make sure both blend into one. Now you have the fake filler lips ready! If you’ve always been a lipstick girlie and now you’re starting your lip gloss collection, these lip glosses are just WOW!
