Envious About Full Lips? Here’s How They Do It

The most commonly used method these days is an injectable dermal filler for lip augmentation. Many kinds of dermal fillers can be used in your lips. The most frequently used one in many procedures are products that have compounds like hyaluronic acid. This substance is a natural substance that occurs in the human body. It’s the least non-invasive and safest way to lip volume. Sometimes they are just known as hyaluronic acid fillers. Collagen was earlier used in many procedures but has now been replaced with safer and newer options. Some other options that are again not preferred as much are fat injections and implants. These two options have varying results and are also prone to causing unwanted side effects.

There are many form changes that can be brought about by using a hyaluronic acid filler. These additions can include an increase in structure, shape, volume and firmness. The effects of this filler typically last for five to six months. The time for how long these effects last may slightly vary depending on person to person. Based on the prognosis of your cosmetologist, you might need further sessions to keep the same appearance that you got after the first procedure. Some of the more common hyaluronic acid fillers include Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Silk, Belotero Balance and others. It is best to check with your doctor about which product would suit you the best. Some of these products may also contain a local anaesthetic that would lessen the pain of the injection itself.

Post Procedure

After the injection procedure is done, the tissues of the lips are supported and shaped by the gel in the filler. Let’s look at the benefits of using such fillers. Based on how thin your lips are or how thick or voluminous your doctor decides is best for your face shape, only that amount of the filler is injected. That consequently gives you the lip volume you need. Some people might not be comfortable with a single full-length session. For them, the procedure can be scheduled over multiple sessions. Over time, the desired results can be achieved. Any bumps created during the procedure are easily ironed out by the natural movement of the lips. Fillers using hyaluronic fillers cause less bruising than other fillers. As mentioned earlier, the results last for 4-6 months, depending on the physiology of the body.

 

Finally

Using fillers of this kind rarely cause any allergic reaction. Since hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, there are very few chances of any allergy developing in anyone. However, you should always check with your doctor if you are allergic to local anaesthesia used in these products.

The first thing to do is to remove the old nail polish.

Never be tempted not to. The best way to remove your old polish is with a cotton pad soaked in nail polish remover. This works best when you hold the stacked cotton pad over the nail for a minute so it absorbs the polish before wiping it off. This also ensure you wipe off your nail polish neatly without it spilling over to the sides of the nail.

 

Apply Cuticle Cream

Once the old nail polish is off, you should apply cuticle cream. This does wonders for your nails, especially when you lay your hands on the right one.

 

Shape the Nails

You should shape the nails using a nail file. Only use a scissors if you want to really reduce the length of the nails. Best to share with a nail file from edge to centre at an angle. File the tip downwards by holding the nail file vertically.

Buff and Colour

A good buffing of the nails is your next step, then colour. A base coat, 2 coats of colour and a top coat work great if you have the time. Most times, I just buff and apply a clear polish, and I am good to go. It all depends on the look you are going for. Also, it is best to paint from bottom to top vertically and make sure you are using good quality nail polishes to achieve the desired results.

I am not a fan of the quick nail polish drying method, I like to put my foot up and do nothing for a few minutes after painting my nails. However, if I need to do something with my hands, I wait until my nails are touch dry and then I run a cold water tap over them for a few seconds. This method helps the nails dry a lot quicker.

How to use a Blusher

You may notice your face looks a bit bland after applying primer, concealer, foundation and powder. This is because all the imperfections have been evened out to create a uniformed face, which has taken away the hint of healthy colour in your cheeks. This is where the blusher comes in. A good blusher goes a long way in brightening up the face and adding the right amount of colour to your cheeks. I like to apply them sparingly, so it is not so obvious. That look works so great for my face.

Blushers are so handy to have in the makeup bag. They are a good multitasking makeup product, which is amazing for when you need to go away with a little bag of makeup. Blushers can be applied on the eyes, cheeks as well as the lips, with some lip gloss for a light lip look.

Blushers usually come in powder or cream textures. Many now come in gel textures too! I find powder blushers a lot easier to use, which is why I have loads of them on my makeup table. I like to start slow and light and build up if I need more. Like most makeup products, less is more with blushers. I apply my blusher starting from the centre of my cheeks, then over to the edges.

Here are some blusher makeup tips for the shape of your face –

 

Square Face

For the square face, apply from jawline to cheeks for a softer look.

 

Oval Face

When it comes to the oval faces, apply gently on the cheekbones.

 

Round Face

Apply the blusher on the jawline, cheeks and area just above the brow-bone to create an illusion of a slimmer face.

 

Oblong Face

For the oblong face, broaden the pointed chin by applying blusher at the tip and cheeks to sides.

 

Blushers are very makeup products worth having. If you are new to blushers, you can start off experimenting with a safe colour like a rose pink and see how you get on.
