Whether you prefer to thank Kylie Jenner or OGs Angelina Jolie and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, big pouts have become a MASSIVE thing in the beauty world. Pretty much every single beauty blogger, influencer and celebrity are rocking the 'just-got-fillers' lip look, whether they opted for injections or not.
Because while lip injections are one way to add shape and volume to your lips, for whatever reason (price, needle fear, allergies), they might not be an option for you. The good news is, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a perfectly plumped-up pout.
Thankfully, there are a bunch of injectable-free options to make your smackers look big and juicy, without the scary price tag, swelling or pain. You don’t even need to go through the effort of over-lining your lips with lip liner.
