I always wanted a set of big, full, pouty lips. I only have one. My lower lip is pretty full, but my upper lip is thin and pointy. When I was 12 and my orthodontist put braces on my top teeth, my mother said it made my lips look much prettier. When the orthodontist took them off when I was 17, I was stunned and disappointed to remember that I did not have full lips after all. I almost asked him to put them back on.
But getting braces is a bit extreme, so here are 12 easy, non-surgical lip plumping hacks that will make you the Angelina Jolie of your friends.

If you aren’t going to have to talk or eat and want to make your lips look bigger, you can roll up a little piece of Kleenex or tissue and stick it under your upper lip. That’s what my mother used to tell me to do to make my lips look more even. It works, but you can’t really talk or you’ll risk spitting wet tissue at somebody.
