Lip Contouring: How To Get A Full Pout (WITHOUT LIP FILLER OR SURGERY!!)


{ click each product to shop }

First things first, I live & die by this nude lip liner. If you invest in one thing out of this tutorial, this should be it ( << not sponsored, just realness ).

I have one I use for my eyes ( when the rims of my eyes are red, I use nude liner to take the redness away. A lot of people use white, but I find nude liner looks more natural & less 7th grade-ish. ).

And then I have a separate lip liner ( in the same color ) that I use to contour ( you read that right ) my lips.

Contouring your lips can be GNARLY.


It can also be easy.

It’s kind of like saying you can go to the nail salon & get gels or you can just get a quick polish change ( AKA me. Every week. Polish change on repeat ).

Basically I’m not doing my lip contouring like nail gels. I don’t want to sit there for 429347528 hours. I want a quick little polish change.

But not a polish change, a lip contour.

Is my analogy making sense or did I just confuse the hell out of you?

Ok to make it easier, I filmed a tutorial. Literally Kermit the Frog on crack cocaine could do this. It’s not rocket science & takes a hot minute. Also, it’s WORTH IT.


Maybe not Lisa Rinna-bigger, but close.

Ok, watch the video & let me know if you have questions ( I’ll make sure to answer them all ):

Everyone & their mom is adding filler to their lips lately. I haven’t tried it but if you have, PLLLLLLEASSSE tell me your opinion? First: did it hurt? Was it worth it?

No offense, but it seems like adding a little lip contour is wayyyyy easier than getting needles stuck in my lips ( which b t dubs, is like one of the most sensitive parts of the body ). OUCHHH.

What’s your take?

By the way, if you’re into the glossy finish & not the matte look, use Lip Venom. It’s one of my favorites if I’m having a glossier moment. Basically it stings the F out of your lips in the best way possible.

Ok, I’m off to contour my lips ( & my face ) for a night out in Hong Kong!!

  1. Love this tutorial! I also find that facial exercise really helps to plump lips and using lip scrub a couple of times per week…

  2. um hello gorgi, you look so pretty! I feel like everyone and their mom is getting their lips done too, it’s like the new thing. Not sure about it, because then you have to keep doing it and doing it….

    always down for a full lip though! thank you for this!

  3. Love your makeup tutorials! Seriously amazing and so straight forward. It looks like you are wearing a pinky color on your lip in the begging of this-would you be able to share what it is? I am looking for a color just like that.

  4. Died for this video. And coincidentally bought the Naked Lip Liner from MAC last week and now I know EXACTLY how to use it and i’m beyond excited, TY!

    Also, I have gotten lip filler before. I’ve been three separate times and I’m going for another one next week. I only get a Mini lip injection each time I go (a mini is a half of a half of a full lip injection,, if that makes sense). It last about 2 months for me but my doctor says it depends on the person, it can last up to 6 months. I feel like the mini gives me the perfect amount of fullness without going overboard.. its very subtle. Like people don’t say “Hey you got your lips done”, they may notice something different about my face but its not like BAM in your face. AND as for the pain… k I LOATHE needles, like I pretty much faint every time, get all sweaty and gross,, not cute. But I felt like this wasn’t that bad, he used a really thin needle on me. The first time is the one that hurts the least, then the times after that it hurts an bit more cause there is already gel in your lips from the time before (EW can’t think about it).

    So ya 🙂 PS OBSESSED with TSC, like obsessed.

  5. Love this lip scrub from Lush – tastes just like bubblegum! They also make it in a yummy mint julep flavor 🙂,en_US,pd.html#start=1,en_US,pd.html#start=2

  6. Lauryn! Huge fan of you and TSC! This is the first time EVER leaving a comment to someone i actually don’t know personally, but…what the hell! lol
    I got the courage to write because I recently hopped on the lip filler band wagon but ONLY because for the past couple years i’ve done EVERY single lip plumper, those sucky lip things, lip liner, brushing my lips ect. I was just getting tired, period. All i wanted was my lips to look like how they are when i first wake up- for about the first hour lol.
    I did my obsessive homework and got an amazing referral from a good friend. My first time (iv’e only done it twice) lasted 7 months. It was uncomfortable but nothing painful in my opinion and the results were totally natural with zero “Duck lip” effects.
    In my opinion, I recommend it to people that are constantly giving their lips more love and extra care lol. I personally have saved myself a ton of time when getting ready and my nightly routine!
    Hope that helps! Thank you for all of YOUR helpful tips!!

  7. You are so gorgeous! Love your tutorial and makeup. Could you please share what eyeshadows you are wearing? I’m looking for something natural to wear everyday and yours is perfect!

  8. Come on there is nothing wrong in lip fillers. Actually, there is nothing wrong in all face fillers. Cosmetic products could improve the condition of your lips but they won`t make miracles.

  9. Hi every one, here every person is sharing these knowledge,
    thus it’s pleasant to read this weblog, and I used to pay a quick
    visit this webpage daily.

  10. Magnificent website. A lot of helpful information here.

    I’m sending it to a few friends ans additionally sharing in delicious.
    And obviously, thank you to your effort!

  11. Undeniably believe that that you said. Your favorite justification seemed to
    be at the net the easiest thing to consider of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed at the same time as folks think about
    worries that they just do not understand about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also defined out the whole thing with no need side effect , folks
    can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more.

    Thank you
