How To Make Lips Look Bigger

Discover Charlotte Tilbury's tips on how to make lips look bigger with a step-by-step guide using lip liner, lipstick and lip gloss for fuller-looking lips.

From Fair Brow to Kylie Jenner, beautiful bee-stung lips will always be on trend. So I’m sharing my top tips on how to make lips look bigger. Whether you prefer a matte or a glossy finish, here are the ultimate steps to cheating your way to a fuller, more kissable, pretty pout.

The lipsticks we love to use for making lips look bigger are the Matte Revolution lipsticks and K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick, so you can choose whether you want a glossy finish or a modern matte pout. Matte lipsticks are fabulous for applying straight from the bullet for a quick lipstick slick, or use a Lip Brush for an ultra-precise finish.

  1. Eye-Smudger-Brush-Front-Packshot-Reflection

    Step 1: Highlight your cupid's bow

    Accentuate the shape of your lips by highlighting the cupid’s bow, using the Eye Smudger brush dipped into the Highlight shade from Filmstar Bronze & Glow bronzer & highlighter duo.

  2. Pillow-Talk-Lid-Off-Packshot

    Step 2: Outline your lips

    Starting with the corner of your top lip, outline your lips using the Lip Cheat lip liner, tracing the outer edge of your natural lip line.

  3. 2-Column-Lipsticks

    Step 3: Apply your lipstick

    Apply your favourite shade of lipstick either from the Matte Revolution or K.I.S.S.I.N.G range, depending on whether you want a matte or glossy finish. Think of it like filling in a stencil created by your lip liner.

  4. Lip Lustre Pillow Talk Pack Shot Open

    Step 4: Seal it with lipgloss

    For a high-impact glamorous finish, apply Lip Lustre lip gloss to match your chosen shade. This will give the illusion of plump, voluptuous lips.

Tilbury Tips:

  • Always match your lip liner to your lipstick to prevent a mismatched look.
  • For extra staying power that will last all night. Apply Lip Cheat lip liner to the entire lip before apply your chosen lipstick shade.
  • When applying a dark lip, a pointed cotton bud with a little Magic Cream is your best friend. Use the pointed tip to correct any mistakes you may have made.
