Anything Jonathan Van Ness says, we'll do. Legit.
Lips have really had their moment in the last few years so it’s vital that we keep them looking fresh and ready for the day. Whether you like a plumped-up pout or an au natural moment then who better to take advice from that those perfect-kisser blessed celebs?
From using kitchen essentials to the Queer Eye guys helping us put our best lip forward, take a look at these top tips.
But first check out the times Kylie Jenner proved she is, in fact, the Queen of selfies....
1. Kylie Jenner - Pout, pout, pout
The lip kit queen has a product-free technique for making her lips appear fuller – she pouts. CRAZY THOUGHT. She told her Snapchat followers: “Everyone keeps thinking I make my lips bigger, but this is them normally...”
“...And this is when I push them out and do my little face,” she added.
2. Khloe Kardashian - Overline those puppies
Koko goes down the makeup route when she wants to enhance her lips. She wrote on her app: “Line slightly above the top of your natural cupid's bow, as well as slightly below your normal lower lip line until you've reached the fullness you want. PRO TIP: NEVER go outside your normal lip line on the sides of your mouth. If you do, you'll look cray."
3. Jonathan Van Ness - Make your own scrub
The babe of all fabulousness, told us to keep those lips refreshed with your own DIY scrub. He said on Queer Eye: “Take coconut oil, brown sugar, honey and any essential oil that tickles your fancy. I chose grapefruit because everyone knows citrus has a touch more exfoliating power. Take a little bit and do a little scrub, scrub, scrub.” Yesss, honey. Literally.
4. Lisa Rinna - Grab the cinnamon
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was famous for her lips long before Kylie Jenner was even born. And turns out she just raids her spice drawer when she needs an extra bit of oomph. She said: “A fun little trick if you want to plump up your lips, so to speak, is a little cinnamon. Just put a little on your lips.”
5. Kim Kardashian - Use that highlight
Kimmy K has gifted us with a bunch of invaluable glam tips over the years and how to get her perfect lips is no different. Her go-to makeup guru Mario Dedivanovic explained: "If you want to get a more pouty lip…put a little bit of highlighter right on the Cupid's bow. That's going to really lift up and make the lips look pouty."
6. Margot Robbie - Free the nipple cream
Margot always looks beaut and we would take every nugget of advice she gives us, but nipple cream? WTF. She said: “I have a conspiracy theory that lip balms actually have additives in them to dry your lips out so you keep buying them. But because [nipple cream] Bepanthen is just a cream for dry skin, it works. It's what I've used my whole life.”
7. Huda Beauty - Try the toothpaste
Huda Kattan, the makeup whiz, gifted the world with her fave fuller lip hack. She said: “Probably the quickest DIY ever, and it’s so simple: cover your lips with a thick layer of toothpaste and leave it on for just 10 seconds! Wipe it away, et voila, a smooth, plump pout.”
8. Anna Kendrick - Go naked
Anna’s makeup artist Stephen Dimmick actually prefers to ditch the lipstick. Huh? He says: “Believe it or not, sometimes the BEST tip for making lips appear plump is to keep them clean and make your eyes the focus!"
Now for the brow transformations that prove we have hope....
