Discover Charlotte's secret to making lips look fuller with iconic makeup products, including Hot Lips 2 - inspired by your favorite celebrities!

Having fuller more pouty lips is one of the most sought after beauty trends in the makeup industry. In honor of the launch of Hot Lips 2, we are going to share Charlotte’s red carpet beauty secrets so you can achieve the appearance of fuller lips. There are various easy and natural ways to achieve a plump-looking pout using Charlotte Tilbury’s iconic collection of lipsticks, lip glosses and lip liners.

How You Can Make Your Lips Look Fuller

  1. Two facial cleansers, one in lemon-yellow packaging and the other in charcoal-black, with their lids off.

    Step 1 - Cleanse

    Firstly, to achieve the appearance of fuller lips you want to ensure your lips are smooth, hydrated and cleansed. Wash your face and lips using Charlotte’s Goddess Cleansing Ritual Cleanser.

  2. A nude pink lip liner pencil in light gold-coloured packaging with its cap next to it.

    Step 2 - Contour

    Now you want to move onto contouring, as this is one of the best ways to achieve the appearance of bigger lips naturally. Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Cheat Pillow Talk lip liner is the perfect makeup product to create full lips. Using this lip liner you can subtly reshape and redefine the dimensions to get the effect of plump lips. Outline your lips starting from the top corner to create a pouty lips effect. You can draw slightly over the outer edge of your natural lip line for fuller lips. Fill in your lips with the lip liner to create the perfect base for your lipstick and make it last longer.

    Charlotte’s special tip is to use this lip liner with Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk for a gorgeous day-to-night makeup look. It will give you the appearance of naturally big lips.

Goldilocks Lips

They aren’t too thin or too thick and they don’t have a very pronounced Cupid’s bow. To create a more defined lip shape use the Amazing Amal berry-pink lipstick from the new Hot Lips 2 collection. This will give you the appearance of big lips.

Wide Lips

Wide lips cover a good portion of the lower half of the face and therefore don’t need to be defined as much as other shapes. Discover Glowing Jen, a tawny beachy rose lipstick, from the Hot Lips 2 collection for a glossy sun-kissed finish.
