Lip Tip: Sting Free Plumper

Today I stumbled across a winning lip combo for getting fuller looking lips and had to share it with you. I, and I'm sure most of you reading this, are familiar with the trick of using lip gloss on the center of the lips to make them appear fuller. As I looked at my selection of lip glosses today, my eye was drawn to a stark white and, while it seemed like a challenge at the time, it turned out to be the best lip plumper I've ever tried. As it turns out, white is the ultimate highlight color and, as long as you blend it thoroughly into your lip color of the day, you will get a serious plumping effect rather than a stark gradient as you might imagine.

I started by using Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop and went with MAC's Lipglass in Cut Loose from the Hey Sailor Collection on the centers of the upper and lower lips. Because this was a limited edition find, I went searching for a drugstore alternative and came up short. So, if you are wanting to recreate this look and don't have a white gloss, a white eyeshadow will do. Simply lay your lip color down, use your finger to place the shadow in the center of your lips and lay a clear gloss over it to blend. 

That's it! Sweet and simple, but a nice way to change up your beauty routine for the better. I would love to know if you have tried this, or plan on trying it. Please comment below or tweet a picture to @makingupthemw!

Full FOTD!
