Fake Tan As Lipliner: Just A Passing Trend Or Viable Option

Do you remember back in 2015 when Kylie Jenner convinced the world that her lips looked so much bigger simply because she was overlining them? It sparked a trend worldwide of women overlining their lips and wanting their lips to be bigger. 

Since then, women have been getting fillers worldwide, and it is a trend that we will see for a long time to come. However, some women would prefer not to have any cosmetic surgeries done. 

This hack might help you to achieve the look of fuller lips without having to have any cosmetic surgery done. 

What Is The Hack? 


If you use fake tanner often, you will know that it comes in many forms, from mousses to sprays, but they all have in common that they give us a bronzed glow without ever having to go outside or damaging our skin in the sun. 

As fake tanner has become more popular, people have come up with a bunch of hacks that involve using fake tanner in different ways to look naturally beautiful by the most unnatural means. 

This particular hack involves using fake tanner as a way to contour your lips and make them seem bigger than they are. 

How Do You Do It?

For this hack, you will need a small brush and any type of fake tanner. You will dip the brush in the fake tanner to get the desired amount of fake tanner on the brush, and then you can begin performing the hack. 

You will take the brush filled with fake tanner and begin to line your lips as if you were applying lip liner before your lipstick. You can make it your desired color by adding more or less fake tanner. Do not put any tanner on your actual lips, as it is important not to ingest it. 

How Long Does It Last? 


We tend to wash our faces much more thoroughly than our bodies, and we apply far more product to our faces than we do our bodies, so the fake tanner around your lips might not last as long as it does on your body. 

If you wash very gently around your mouth, the tanner might last longer than it will if you wash your face and apply your products as normal. You can also reapply the tanner much more often than anywhere else on your body because it is such a small amount. 


You should be very careful with this hack because it could be harmful to your skin as your facial skin tends to be much more sensitive than the skin on other areas of your body.
