Plump lips are always the need of the hour. Not everyone is blessed with fuller lips, but that doesn’t mean those of you with thinner lips can’t enjoy a plump effect on your pout. From lip injections to lip blushing treatments, there are numerous fads to get your lips volumised. Although, if long term measures like lip fillers aren’t for you, trying your hand at some at-home lip-plumping hacks and OTC products can be rewarding. Here’s a list of popular lip-plumping tips to take note of.

A DIY hack and dupe to a lip maximizer, peppermint oil has been trending on sites like TikTok as a way to make your lips fuller. Lip maximizers usually use peppermint oil in their formulations and if you can’t seem to get the product, this DIY method is your next best bet. The only thing to keep in mind is to moisturise with a balm after applying the oil on your lips. A patch test is recommended.

A popular makeup hack that popped up last year is overlining. This hack makes your lips look fuller than they are with a lip colour. You can use a lip liner or lipstick to colour right over the natural line of your pout. Just make sure to go about it skillfully.
