Hello, everyone! In this tutorial, I want to share step-by-step instructions for how you can make your thin lips look fuller naturally.

Best lip primer!

Help your lips look fuller and your lipstick color last longer with this best lip primer that Amazon reviewers swear by!

Tools and materials:

  • Lip primer
  • Lip liner
  • Magnifying mirror
  • Tissue
  • Lipstick (cherry red)
  • Lip gloss (optional)
  • Cotton pad
Priming lips

1. Apply lip prime

I start by applying the Never Feather Lip Prime that comes with a handy applicator. 

Apply the lip prime around the edge of your lips, not on your lips directly.

If you accidentally get some on your lips, you can easily remove it with a cotton pad.

Priming lips

Pat it in gently for the best results.

2. Add lip liner

Today, I'm using raspberry lip liner. This is my first time using lip liner, and I love how easy it is to apply. 

Use a magnifying mirror to define your lips. Begin at the Cupid's bow and work your way around.

You can go slightly above your natural lip line for a fuller look.

Lining lips

Once the outline is complete, use the pencil to fill in your lips lightly.

3. Lipstick application

The lipstick I'm using is cherry red. Apply the lipstick directly or use a lip brush if you have one.

Blotting lipstick

To ensure longevity, blot the first coat with a tissue.

Applying lipstick

Then apply a second coat.

Applying lip gloss

4. Apply lip gloss (optional)

For an extra wow factor, especially in the evening, you can apply lip gloss. 

I use my fingers to dab a small amount in the center of my lips. It gives a beautiful finishing touch and enhances the fullness of your lips.
