From Angelina Jolie, to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and now Kylie Jenner, society has started to revolve around the idea that the bigger the lips the better.
Fuller lips have drawn attention throughout the years, but recently with the increased use of social media, fuller lips have become a worldwide trend. The women I talked to about their lips have tried every trick in the book to get the desired plump look that every celebrity seems to have, but don’t seem to know what will work best for them.
So how are celebrities getting these beautiful, big lips?
One of the most popular options that women resort to are lip injections. However, there are a lot of important aspects to consider when thinking about lip injections. Lip injections can be very costly, especially when you’re young like me and living on a budget. These lip fillers can enhance your lips, but can also leave your lips looking puffy and for lack of better words, like duck lips. It doesn’t necessarily look natural and people will begin to stare at your lips for all the wrong reasons. Fillers also aren’t a permanent solution unless you plan on going in more than once a year. I don’t know about you, but voluntarily going to the doctor to be prodded with a needle multiple times a year sounds a little intimidating.
Another way to get the lips you’ve always dreamed of is to get plastic surgery. It typically includes going under anesthesia for an hour or two. Depending on the procedure, the cost can vary greatly anywhere from $500-$2000. It is definitely more of a permanent solution if you have the resources to have surgery done. That is where celebrities have the advantage over all of us 9-5’ers.
One of the last options I found during my research is a new product called Vermilion. It is the most cost effective option of all of the solutions I have found at $79. It is a strip that you simply put in your mouth and can be used for both your upper and lower lips. The company recommends wearing them for 10-30 minutes a day for as many days as you can fit into your schedule. The cool thing about these strips is that they’re not invasive and you can try and work them into your daily routine. The only hard part is remembering to wear them frequently. If you do wear them as directed your lips should begin to appear fuller in as soon as 30 days.
You might never get the chance to live life like Angelina Jolie or Kylie Jenner, but what if you could get your lips to look like theirs? It’s worth a shot. No matter your budget, there’s plenty of options to try.
