Though we don’t have the same lip shapes and sizes, it doesn’t mean we can’t work out the magic fuller pout. The way you apply your lipstick makes a huge difference in your entire makeup.

When it comes to long-lasting lipsticks, If you want to make your lips look bigger, brighter and more appealing, try these tricks:
Nobody has time for cracked lips. They’ll completely mess up your lipstick, irrespective of what brand you use. Moisturize your lips with a lip balm or cream. Also, exfoliate at least once in two weeks. Try a honey and sugar lip scrub for smooth, soft lips.
Use Loose Powder or Foundation
This is a trick that works wonders for lip makeup. Cover your lower and upper lips with powder or foundation to highlight your cupid bow and give your lips a perfect finish. This also helps your lipstick last long. You’ll have to scrub it off at the end of the day though.
After applying your lipstick, dab it with a brush. You can use any brush for this purpose. Using a tissue on the lips can also give the same effect. The idea is to remove excess lipstick from the lips to get a perfect result.
Wearing a slight touch of lip gloss creates a cool effect for lip makeup. Use a lip-gloss on the lipstick to create a sexy shimmering effect. Or you could use a transparent lip-gloss on the lips to get a natural effect.
Know The Right Shade For You
Use dark lip colours to complement dark skin tones. Use light lip colours for light skin complexion. Colours like pale brown and pink are ideal for light skin. Use medium colours for olive skin complexion. Choose red lipstick, only if it suits you well. Red does not suit every skin tone, so choose wisely.
