There are certain tips that can be adopted to achieve plump and well-defined lips, without resorting to cosmetic surgery. Among these, applying a tinted oil provides an immediate visual effect on the volume of the lips and mouth.
What are the properties of a tinted lip oil?
The skin of the lips is five times thinner than that of the rest of the body and lacks a hydrolipidic film, making them particularly delicate, prone to dehydration and easy damage. Frequently applying throughout the day a lip oil helps to both prevent dehydration, nourish these delicate membranes, and also enhance their beauty.
Indeed, a tinted oil is a hybrid product that exhibits the characteristics of a gloss, but provides the properties of a lip balm.Its texture can be thin or thick, while its colour can be transparent, slightly tinted or highly pigmented. Upon application, it leaves a shiny veil that does not stick to the surface of the lips, unlike a gloss, and additionally brings benefits to the lips.
How to achieve plump lips with tinted oil?
The application of a tinted oil allows for the reshaping of the lips, giving them an immediate plump appearance. Generally, these formulas contain moisturising active ingredients that will plump the lips such as hyaluronic acid or vitamin E. Some lip oils may also contain "warming" active ingredients that stimulate blood micro-circulation like guarana oil or chilli extract.
For a tinted oil to provide a visually plumping effect on the lips, it is crucial to know how to apply it correctly. You can start by outlining your lips with a pencil that matches the colour of the tinted oil. It is possible to slightly cheat by extending the actual volume of the lips with the pencil by creating a slightly larger outline, without exceeding 3 millimetres. Then, apply the lip oil using the applicator or directly with your fingers. As for the colour, opt for light and bright shades that will accentuate the volumes.
Note : To make the most of the benefits of a tinted oil, it is recommended to take comprehensive care of your lips, for instance, by performing a scrub once a week. There are also night masks available to apply in the evening for soft and plump lips upon waking.
