The simple, temporary way to make your lips look fuller requires a little bit of patience and some makeup:
If you don’t have the time or patience for this much makeup, you can still make your lips look a little fuller by switching up your lipstick. In general darker colors make your lips look smaller and thinner. Switch your red lipstick for a pink or nude color, or simply use a light gloss. This will help your lips look a little larger and fuller.
If you don’t want to go to the trouble of faking larger lips regularly, there are treatments available that can actually restore some fullness to your lips.
In most cases, lips are plumped using dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm and Belotero. These fillers are easily administered and require very little recovery time.
In other situations, fat grafts or surgery to reposition the lips can give patients more substantial results. These treatments require a little bit of recovery time, but most patients can return to normal activities quickly.
