Keeping lips clean and moisturized with a proper makeup is the best way to get smaller lips. Although there are no natural methods for making lips thinner, but one can use aloe vera and lemon for cleaning and honey for moisturizing lips. Even men can use these tips to get a perfect lip shape.
Lips when not cleaned look dark due to the accumulation of dirt and dead cells on it. Although dark lips tend to appear small but paying less attention on cleanliness is unhygienic. Hence use a best lip scrub to clear impurities from lips and make it dirt-free.
Providing moisture will help to keep lips soft and smooth. Lack of moisture can make lips look dry and chapped. Now such dryness make lip to appear bigger, hence to get perfect lips keep it clean and moisturized.
Wearing braces can make lips to look big. But this is not a problem, as soon as you remove them in a few days your lips become normal.
You may have noticed that in case of any injury on lips it becomes bigger. A punch, biting lips or any other injury should be treated well. I know a person who had accidently fallen and injured her lips. She didn’t pay attention in treating it and now the center part of her upper lips has become large permanently. Hence you should take care of such injuries to lips. In case of any such injury immediately rub ice to lips.
Never apply shiny lipstick if you want lips to appear thin because these shiny shades reflect light which make it to look big. A correct lip make up is as important as the tips provided above. To start with lip makeup first use a liner and then with a dark shaded lipstick cover your lips. This is my personally tried beauty parlor tip which I have done on many of my friends and clients.
This should be your last choice if you have an abnormal looking lip which is making you conscious. For this you need to go to a dermatologist. Although this method is costly but can help in returning your lips to normal.
