Beauty Secrets You Need To Score Fuller Lips, STAT!
If there is any beauty item that is coveted and more popular than ever, it would definitely have to be a good lip-enhancing lippie! With Kylie Jenner popularizing a plump pout, full lips have become a beauty look that girls everywhere have been trying to achieve. While plump lips have easily taken over the beauty department, not all girls are naturally born with them. But before you lose hope, Candy Girls, read on because we've got the basics locked down to help you score a fuller pout right about now!
Highlight and contour!
Try: The Manizer Sisters P1464, The Balm
We all know that highlighting and contouring works wonders for your face and the same can be said for your lip game, too because this nifty makeup hack will have your pout looking plumper than usual in no time! Apply your go-to highlighter on your cupid's bow and lightly contour the section below your bottom lip to create shadows.
Dab some peppermint oil on your lips.
Try: Essential Oil Peppermint P814, Wild Products
Before you splurge on an expensive bottle of lip plumper, opt for the more affordable peppermint oil as an alternative first. Peppermint oil helps with blood circulation, so applying a bit on your lips will allow it to swell just enough to achieve that perfect pout. Plus, it's a natural alternative and totally safe to use, too!
Line beyond your normal lip area using a slightly darker shade.
Try: Lip Contour Liner P640, Pixi by Petra
Take your beauty cue from Kylie J and color your lips with a lip liner to emphasize your pout. But you can take her beauty trick up a notch and line your lips beyond your lip line using a slightly darker shade of lip liner for extra definition. Make sure to blend well.
Apply gloss on the middle of your lips!
Try: Shiny Liquid Lip Gloss P135, Avon
Aside from adding that extra sparkle to your lip game, lip glosses are also great for highlighting the highest points of your lips, making it look fuller every time it reflects the light.
Exfoliate your lips.
Try: Kiss Kiss Lip Scrub P298, Tony Moly
Exfoliating is great for rejuvenating dull skin and it’s no different for your lips! Use a lip scrub or scrub your lips lightly when you brush your teeth in the morning and you’ll end up with plumper-looking lips and a natural, rosy tint effortlessly.

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
