Beautiful, plump and luscious lips are every woman’s dream. But in reality, not everybody is blessed with such gorgeous lips.
Today, there are many expensive surgical treatments that will help in making your lips look fuller. But you can also create the effect of plumper lips by using a lip plumper.
A lip plumper is a cosmetic product that will enhance the fullness of your lips. They come in a variety of colors and can be applied either with your lipstick or can be worn just alone. There are many leading brands of lip plumpers which are available in the market today. There are available in translucent, opaque and tinted forms.
A lip plumper basically works by irritating the skin surface, thus thickening the surface skin of the lips.
One type of lip plumper contains camphor and gelatin and they work by dilating the blood vessels present in the lips. This will give the look a fuller and luscious appearance. Another type of lip plumper which contain collagen imitators like cinnamon will bind to the collagen in the lips and will thus make your lips look plumper.
The lip plumpers available in the market can sometimes turn out to be a bit expensive. If you do not want to go for a commercial lip plumper, you can very well make your own lip plumper by using ingredients that are cheap and easily available.
You can make a lip plumper by mixing together 2 teaspoons of coconut oil, 1 drop of peppermint oil and a small amount of powdered ginger. This solution will help in the dilation of the blood vessels present in the lips, thus enhancing their color and making the lips look even fuller. If you want your lip plumper to be more solid, then you can add beeswax to it.
An easy method of plumping up your lips will be by adding cinnamon powder to your lip gloss.
Be sure that you test your homemade lip plumper on a small patch of your skin, before applying it on your lips so as to rule out the chance of infections. Also since lip plumpers do not guarantee you a long lasting effect, you will have to frequent touch ups to get the desired results.
