So, foods like citrus fruits, ripe papaya, tomatoes, carrots, green leafy vegetables, nuts, whole grains, oats, and milk products may be included in the diet. Of course, it’s best to take your doctor’s advice before making changes in your diet, especially if you have any medical condition. Use glossy lipsticks and lip balm.
For fuller lips take the help of make-up. Light colors and glossy lipsticks make thin lips look fuller. For a pout, apply lipstick all over the lips, leaving out the center. Then, apply a light colored lip gloss on the center.
To make thin lips look fuller, first apply foundation, which is one shade lighter than normal skin color. Apply powder lightly. Wait for a few minutes. Then outline the lips just outside your normal lip line. Use the same color lip pencil as the color of your lipstick. Then apply light colored glossy lipstick on the lips, using a lip brush.
Always use standard quality lip products as cheap quality lipsticks are made of chemical products and can make your lips dark and pigmented.When going out of the home in open sun for a long time then you should apply good quality lip balms and do not forget to remove lipsticks while going to bed at night.Apply lip balms daily at night to keep them hydrated
