With Valentine’s Day almost here, give your pout some oomph with natural-looking fillers. Products like Juvederm are Hyaluronic acid (HA) gels that can add back lost volume, as if re-stuffing a pillow. These products are unlikely to cause an allergic reaction because HA is found naturally in the body, and the results can last up to 12 months. In the event that you don’t like the results, there is a counteractive that can safely dissolve the filler.
You can also try a plumping gloss, with ingredients that mildly irritate and swell the lips, or use a conditioning lip product containing collagen or topical HA. These products attract water molecules to the skin and give a fuller appearance to the lips.
Finally, remember that glossy, light shades make lips look fuller than matte, dark ones. Add a spot of highlighter just above the Cupid’s bow (at the center of the top lip) and under the center of the bottom lip, for the illusion of a fuller pout.
