The Minty Fresh Way To Get Incredible Lips Without Collagen

Do you want incredibly plump lips, but without the collagen? Well, it doesn’t involve thick lip liner or injections. Accentuate your kisser with some minty fresh plumpers, and learn how to give ombre a try (not on your hair, though). These tips are straight from the plumpest lips on Instagram, those of Julia Crothers.

You were born blessed with naturally luscious lips but some girls aren’t so lucky. Did you ever wish your lips were smaller?

I have always embraced my lips! I used to get made fun of for having fish lips, but it never bothered me because I knew I was blessed to have them. Embrace the feature that makes you unique!

What are some ways to enhance your lips without going under the knife?

Obviously the most popular way right now is to over-line them. Another way is to create an ombrè affect to add fullness. If you don’t like wearing heavy lipstick, I recommend getting a lipgloss that has plumper in it, like peppermint or spearmint.

How can you line your lips without getting shakey lines?

I always put on Chapstick before I put on my lip liner! It makes the lines really neat and not too much of a “crayon” shaky texture.

Is there a lip liner that works with a variety of lipstick colors, or do you need a different one for every shade?

I’m really into ombrè lips and I always change up lip liners. One color that works with most colors is a brown or nude color that blends in really well with many lipsticks. I recommend buying a few different colors just to see which ones work best for you.

Do you exfoliate your lips and what is a good DIY method to do so?

Yes! Exfoliating is key to keeping your lips soft and plump! For a DIY I use warm water and sugar, I rub it on my lips and scrub it with a clean toothbrush to get off the dead skin.

WTF is the deal with lip primer and how can you use it without drying your lips?

Lip primer is key to keeping your lipstick fresh! I use a concealer or put powder on my lips before I do my lipstick, which is less drying than the primer product. Only use as much as your lips need.

What are your 3 current favorite lipsticks and your favorite makeup looks to pair with them?

I’m loving NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London. I like pairing that with a nice espresso toned color scheme for my eyes.

Another one I’m into is L’oreal Color Riche in Jennifer’s Nude. It is the perfect nude color. When I wear this I love putting concealer in the middle of my lips to give it an ombrè affect.

Finally, my last favorite is Elf Studio Matte Lip Color in Nearly Nude. It is a perfect color to go with a pink cream eye makeup look, with white liner on the waterline.
