How Can Makeup Complement Lip Fillers?

How can I enhance my lip fillers? In the Philadelphia area, our team at Cross Medical Group is aware that even after having facial fillers, patients may be looking for ways to further improve their appearance. One way of doing this is with makeup.

Lip fillers can add volume and enhance the shape of your lips more effectively and with more lasting results than lipstick, lip liner, or gloss, but makeup can also play a role in enhancing the results of lip fillers. By using makeup strategically, you can further define your lips and make them appear even more plump, defined, and youthful. Here are a few tips on how to combine makeup with lip fillers to optimize your results.

Line Your Lips 

Using a lip liner that matches your natural lip color can help to define your lips and prevent your lipstick from feathering or bleeding.

Choose the Right Lipstick

Choose a creamy or moisturizing lipstick in a shade that complements your skin tone. Bold, bright colors can make lips look fuller, while neutral shades can help to create a subtle, natural-looking effect.

Highlight and Contour 

Use a highlighting product on the center of your bottom lip and the Cupid’s bow of your top lip to create the illusion of fullness. You can also contour the edges of your lips with a slightly darker shade of lipstick or a lip pencil to give them definition.

Apply Gloss

A clear or slightly tinted lip gloss can add shine and hydration to your lips, making them appear plumper and more youthful.

Use Products That Contain Hyaluronic Acid 

If you want to give your lips even more of a plumping effect after fillers, consider using topical products like lip plumpers and glosses that contain hyaluronic acid. 

There are no major recovery requirements for lip fillers. However, you should remember to always apply your lip makeup after your lip fillers have fully healed and any swelling has subsided, which will be typically two to seven days post-injection. The lips tend to show side effects more noticeably than other areas of the face.
