They say that beauty hurts but it doesn't have to! If you've been craving full, luscious lips, forget about painful injections. We've found 7 pain-free ways you can get fuller-looking lips naturally.
#1 Gloss It Up
The easiest way to fuller lips is by using lip gloss. The shiny qualities of lip gloss help reflect light so that you can purposely draw attention to the fullest part of your lips.
Apply lip gloss to the center of your lips to enhance the fullest part of your pout.
Contour isn't meant for just your face, you can also contour your lips to create the illusion of a voluminous pout.
With a lip liner, line your lips to your desired shape. You can overline to create the illusion of a fuller lip.
Highlight the center of your lips. (you can use a lighter shade for this or lip gloss)
Use a concealer only at the corners of your lips to maximize fullness towards the center.
#3 Use Lighter Shades
Lighter shades are best for enhancing lip size especially if you tend to have small lips. Darker shades can make your lips look flat and smaller.
Look for nude or pink shades that compliment your skin tone.
However, if you want to indulge in your favorite darker shade the next tip is for you!
#4 Lip Liner
If you love darker shades but don't want your lips to look small, using a lip liner can make a big difference.
Using a lip liner that is a shade darker than your lipstick, overline your lips to create the illusion of a fuller lip.
Fill in the rest of your lip with your lipstick.
Not only will this enhance your lips but it will keep your lipstick in place.
#5 Highlight Cupids Bow

Apply a small amount of highlighter to your cupid's bow.
#6 Face Yoga? Lip Massages?
Seriously, is this is the thing? Yes. Yes, it is! Although lip massages and face yoga may seem odd, facialists and estheticians confirm that these techniques indeed work. However, it is important to note that they are longer-term solutions as it may take some time to see visible results.
Using clean hands, gently massage your upper lip several times a day.
