Well, this post is for you. Here's 5 great tips to plump that pucker au naturel....
1. Remember to exfoliate your lips - you can use a toothbrush and some vaseline or try something a little more sophisticated like Sara Happ's The Lip Scrub ($24.00). Tastes like molasses as it scrubs lips to make them soft and flake-free.
2. Use a flesh-colored liner to outline lips before filling in with gloss or lipstick - don't extend the line all the way to the outer corners of lips, allow the line to look like it goes on forever, making it darker in the middle will bring fullness to your pucker.

4. Stay away from matte lippies. Always end your lipstick routine with a touch of super shine gloss. Something that plumps your lips is perfect. Try the oldie but goodie: Duwop's Lip Venom ($17.00). It feels like a sting but really plumps that pucker.
5. Hydrate your lip area with moisturizer! Even mid-day, carry around Aquaphor and dab around your mouth for hydration and shine.
