Flaky, scaly lips reflect less light, meaning they look smaller and duller. An easy, instant way to make your lips look a touch larger is to scrub your pout daily with your toothbrush. An added bonus? This boosts circulation, too, promoting a rosier hue sans makeup.
A tried and true secret among makeup artists is to line and fill in your pout with nude lip liner before applying any pretty pigments. Creating a uniform canvas not only ensures stay-put color, it also creates a slightly bigger base for your lipstick.
