There is a line between Angelina Jolie lips and your lips looking like a baboons ass. I’m going more for the Jolie look. If you’ve ever went looking to buy a lip plumper, they cost a pretty penny. I have never found one that’s less than thirty dollars and up. After some digging around though, I’ve found that they all use the same principle for their plumping and that’s either mint or cinnamon. Why not try to make some of your own then? Here are five different ways to accomplish some plumping.

1. 1/2 Tbsp Vaseline
1 Tsp cinnamon oil

2. 1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp salt

3. 1 Tsp cinnamon powder
1 Tbsp avocado oil
1 Tbsp sugar

4. 1 Tsp cinnamon powder
1/2 Tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp olive oil

5. Your lip gloss of choice
1 Tsp cinnamon oil

So, numbers 1 and 5 you can leave on and reapply all day. 2, 3, and 4 I would leave on for ten minutes and then wipe off. Then apply the lip gloss and oil mixture to leave on. Remember cinnamon oil can redden the skin so be careful during application and don’t be rubbing your eyes. Good luck!
