Lips come in all shapes and sizes. There are ways to play them up, and then there are ways to play them down. Some people go to extremes to achieve fuller lips, but you really don’t need to go any further than your kitchen cabinet!
If you’re looking for an easy and inexpensive way to achieve fuller lips, cinnamon makes a great lip-plumping agent.
Here’s how to use it: Before applying your lip color, simply rub a bit of moistened cinnamon on your pout OR apply 1 drop of cinnamon oil to get that full, kissable look. If you choose to go the cinnamon oil route (which I think is easier), look for cinnamon leaf oil. It’s inexpensive, and since you only need a drop, the bottle should last you quite a while.
I think this technique works really great, and I LOVE that it’s natural. : ) Bonus: cinnamon has a ton of added health benefits and smells yummy, too.
What do you guys think? Would you give (or have you given) the cinnamon lip trick a try?
