4 Tips for Luscious Lips
The desire for full lips is not anything new. From classic bombshells like Brigette Bardot and Sophia Loren to today’s starlets such as Margot Robbie, Angelina Jolie and Rihanna luscious, kissable lips is a trend that never goes out of style. Kylie Jenner has made lip augmentation a hot topic with countless selfie pouts and millions of Instagram followers. Social media is always buzzing with debates over models with fuller lips. How full is too full? When does it start looking fake?
Why such an obsession with a perfect pout? We spoke to Dr. John Zannis board certified plastic surgeon in New Bern North Carolina, to get to the bottom of why now, more than ever the lips are a facial focal point and what women can do to achieve the look.
People see Kylie Jenner’s Instagram and think they’ll just get lip injections too.
“The more that celebrities admit to having lip injections and the more attention this particular procedure gets in the media, the more accessible it becomes. The danger is that the procedure is complicated. Not just anyone can do a lip augmentation,” explains Dr. Zannis.
There are ways to work with what you got. Dr. Zannis explains that the key is to strive for facial symmetry. “If you use lip liners, glosses, and other cosmetics to create a fuller look consider your other features and natural lip shape.”
4 Tips for Luscious Lips
1. Use matte liquid lipstick.
Liquid lipstick is popular because it’s easy! It goes on like a lipgloss but dries matte on your lips like a lipstick and is nearly impossible to smear or take off without makeup remover. Liquid lipstick ideal for creating a bombshell look for a night out or special occasion where you want the lipstick to stay put for a long time.
You can use it to make your lips appear fuller, shapely and defined, depending on what your “perfect look” entails. Try one of the best-reviewed brands like LA Splash Cosmetics or Kat Von D.
2. Go for lip fillers.
Dr. John Zannis who works with fillers explains that lip fillers are a great option if you want to alter the shape and volume of your lips semi-permanently.
“They mostly contain hyaluronic acid, which can be injected safely in multiple sessions. The amount is easy to control by a skilled cosmetic surgeon or licensed professional, which allows you to achieve your goal gradually. The effects last around six months, at which point you may do another round of injections.”
He goes on to say that achieving a natural look is the goal and that over-filled cartoon mouths look distorted.
3. Try some cool contouring techniques.
Contouring is another awesome makeup trick to achieve a fuller look. It involves using lighter and darker shades of makeup to play up your features and give you a more defined, chiseled look. The great part is you probably have all you need in your makeup bag already (Tutorial coming soon).
4. Use a lip plumper.
Lip plumpers are great in that they are easy to use, are non-invasive, work fast and are affordable. They’re typically infused with lip-tingling ingredients like cinnamon, pepper, and peppermint which leads to an instant yet slight swelling.
Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme is a popular choice amongst make-up artists and beauty industry pros. When used both morning and night the difference is noticeable fast!
Clearly, there are many options to achieve your “perfect” pout. Experiment!
Here’s What You Missed: Miami Swim Week Edition
Miami Swim Week is a week for all of those who ate a little too many hot dogs during the 4th of July to reevaluate their life choices. All jokes aside, Swim Week has become a major platform for the hottest swimwear designers to showcase their best work. What better place to do this than in Miami Beach, home of some of the hottest beach bods around. Bloggers, models, editors, and enthusiast travel from everywhere to witness this celebration. This year’s Swim Week took place July 14-18th. Here’s a recap of some of the hottest trends of the week and how you can sport it this summer!
Nudes have been taking the fashion world by storm. We see this trend everywhere! If nudes are a little boring for you and you are all about color in the summer, try this trend with something smaller like a bag or a pair of cute sandals to not overpower your outfit.
Cut out swimsuits are quite the sight, but they aren’t the most flattering. Don’t let that discourage you. In the words of Queen Bee: If you got it flaunt it!
Boho is another trend that has been spotted everywhere in recent years. I love the laid back vibe it brings to swimwear. You don’t have to go all the way out of your way to purchase a boho looking swimwear, you can accessorize it to fit the theme. Suggestions below!
Some of these pieces won’t be out until Summer 2017, but there is no reason why you can’t start sporting these looks now. Check out these few pieces to add to any swimwear to create a trendy look! Talk about luxury: those marble flip flops are a must! I am obsessed with gold costume jewelry with swimwear and who isn’t wearing a choker these days? Check out #MiamiSwimWeek for more recaps and cool pictures for this past weeks affairs.

The Perfect Gift Ideas for the “Cool Dad”
Let’s be honest: Everyone wants a cool dad! You know the David Beckham type with the fancy clothes and the swag in his step. If you’re anything like me, odds are your dad is nowhere near Beckham. Nonetheless, he is still cool to you (my dad is cooler than ice). Here’s a quick guide on what to get your “Cool Dad” on his special day.
- Pretty much anything from Ben Sherman. I am officially obsessed with this brand! Father’s day can be hard especially if you are tired of buying mugs and ties. Go for something different this year and buy him a nice shirt or a fancy pair of swimming trunks for the hot summer ahead. Sign up for their emails and get 20% off your first order!
- Bruno Magli Shoes. Their spring collection is absolutely perfect for that NYC dad or his Sunday’s best. Bruno Magli has been around for ages and continues to create refined, handcrafted footwear for those who share an appreciation for elegance and impeccable craftsmanship. Get your dad a pair of comfortable loafers or a nice pair of dress shoes for those special days.
3. A stylish STATE Bag for the dad on the go. Who doesn’t love a good backpack? What makes STATE Bags special aren’t their great styles, but the great cause behind it. STATE was created to address the immediate needs of American children living with challenging – and in some cases critical – circumstances. For every STATE bag purchased, STATE hand-delivers a backpack – packed with essential tools for success – to an American child in need; but our commitment goes beyond simply a material donation. Give your dad a great gift while helping out an amazing cause.
