Beauty 101: Fake Fuller Lips!

Begin outlining your lips with the darker liner, focusing on the outer corners and avoiding the center of your lips.

Take the lighter nude pencil and apply just to the center of your lips. If you place one finger at the very center of your lips, that’s about how much area you’ll want to cover with the lighter pencil.

Using your finger, blend the outer edges of the nude color.

Finally, take a pale pink gloss and apply all over. And you’re done!

Who wouldn't love having a set of fuller lips? Some of us are blessed with a naturally full set, and some of us opt for the needle, which- yikes- isn't the best idea considering it can end up looking not-so-natural.

View the gallery above for the easy steps to create this gorgeous look (and illusion)!

Here's a great way to fake a fuller set without going to extremes; all you need are two nude pencils: One slightly darker than your lips, and one lighter. I love using the MAC Chromographic Pencil because it's super creamy and smooth for easy application and it comes in three different nude shades (here I used NW25/NC30). The darker lip liner that I used is also by MAC and it's called Subculture.

The trick is to make the outer corners of your lips darker and the middle (or the fullest part) lighter so that it appears bigger.
