Get lusciously plumped lips without having to spend money on costly lip plumpers or risky injections.
If you've been paying attention to celebrity news, then you may be familiar with Kylie Jenner’s famous lips! Her matte lips are inspiring tutorials everywhere and NYX cosmetics seems to be every beauty guru’s favorite brand for achieving these fuller looking lips with matte lipstick.
To get the full effect of juicier looking lips, lets start by scrubbing away all the dry skin on them! I've noticed that if you put lipstick over chapped lips you can see all the dry skin residue on your lips and it ends up on your lipstick as well. Yuck! Here’s a quick DIY lip exfoliator.
Since your lips are now clean and smooth, lets start plumping them up with a little help from a common kitchen item known as cinnamon. Cinnamon works like an activating agent that slightly swells up the lips, giving it a fuller appearance. It might tingle a bit but that's how you know it's working. The same tingling effect can be found in lip plumping lip gloss.
Now that your lips are freshly plumped, it’s time to bring out the matte lipstick! NYX cosmetics has taken over the beauty scene with their affordable matte lipsticks and soft matte lip creams! Here are some of the most popular ones that I was lucky enough to find at Ulta for $5.99 each. The only thing that bothers me about drugstore cosmetics is that you aren't always able try them out before you buy, so I'm going to show you what some of these colors look like on.
