Question: How can I get Angelina Jolie lips?
Answer: Not all of us were born with plump pouty lips à la Scarlett Johansson or Angelina Jolie—but with a few tips and tricks, we can all have lips that appear fuller (no needles necessary!)
Invest in a creamy lip liner that matches your lip shade. After applying lip balm, line your lips with the lip liner just slightly outside the natural edge of your lips. Then fill in the rest of your lips with the liner.
If you really want to add volume, pat a concealer in the center of your lips before applying the lip liner. This will give your lips a gradient effect, making them appear larger. Similary, applying a darker lip liner to the corners of your lips will produce the same effect. Just make sure you blend all of this out so your lips don’t look a failed ombre experiment.
If you want to keep things simple, turn to a shiny lip gloss in a nude rosey shade after you’ve applied the liner. A gloss with reflecting, shimmery qualities will amplify your lips and make them appear more three dimensional.
Finally, apply a highlighter to the cupids bow and the center of your lips. Benefit Watt’s Upp is a good option, as it’s a shimmering cream that will illuminate the center of the lips and really make them pop.
For days when you don’t have time to go through a whole routine with your lips (and let’s be real: who does?), stick with a lip balm. My absolute favorite is the tinted Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment. It’s a beautifully moisturizing formula that smells like a summer cocktail. It also has a thicker consistency, so it’ll really make those lips look full and juicier. To amplify this, take your nude lip liner and gently line the edges of your lips to add subtle definition.
