Not everyone is lucky to be born with full lips and this seems to be reigning trend.

Kylie Jenner has definitely helped this particular beauty trend with everyone wondering whether she has lip injections or is just skillful with her lip liner and lipstick.

With this mind, celebrity makeup artist, Carolina Dali, has put out some enlightening tricks on how to get fuller lips.

Here are four easy steps to get full, gorgeous, natural-looking lips that will certainly leave the ladies jealous and guys lusting.

  1. Choose a lip liner close to the shade of your own lips. You should use this kind of color no matter what lipstick you are wearing (yes, even with red or dark berry) if you are going for a fuller lip. (If you use a darker liner it will linger and make it obvious that you are filling in color above your natural lip line.) Start by carefully lining your lips going very slightly on the outside of your natural lip line. Be sure to accentuate your Cupid's bow (the curves in your lip directly below your nose)

  2. Take the liner and draw a line on the top lip from right outside the Cupid's bow slanted in to the bottom center of the lip. Then do the same on the other side. On the bottom lip, draw one line down the center and two lines from the top center out and down in a diagonal slant. This will create more light on your lips and make them look more three-dimensional. 

  3. Now pick your lipstick. Dali chose a color a few shades darker than the natural lip, but this can work with any shade of lipstick you choose. Fill in the lips using an angled lip brush to blend the lipstick into the line. Using a brush will give the lips better definition than if you were just applying straight out of the tube, by creating a new illusion of where the lip line actually begins and ends.

  4. Choose a lip gloss that is lighter than the lipstick to create a three-dimensional effect. (Dali used a sheer pink, but you can use a clear gloss as well. Apply four dots: two in the center of the upper lip and two in the center of the bottom lip. Then blend together, but keep the gloss just in the middle of the lips, not going out to the sides. This will prevent the lipstick from bleeding on the edges and will attract light to the center of the lips to give them a fuller look

There you have it, gorgeous, full, kissable lip and no one will ever know you're faking it.
