Bigger Is Better: Hair And Makeup Tips To Try

by Stephanie Montes

When it comes to our hair, lips and lashes, our motto is go big or go home but getting there is easier said than done. We made it our mission to search high and low for the best products and techniques that give us the bombshell looks we’ve been craving. Get our tips for achieving bigger and better results on the quick. What can we say? We’re overachievers.

Get A Plump Pout

We'll take any alternative to botox and this little trick gets the job done every time. When tracing your lips with a lip liner, don't accentuate your Cupid's bow (yup, we said don't). Instead, connect the 2 points to create a round upper lip shape. Results are very Brigitte Bardot.

For extra oomph: Dab a cream highlighter in the center of lips to add the illusion of volume.

Get Huge Hair

We took it old school when we wrapped our blow-dried locks around some velcro rollers but the end result was nothing short of perfection. After a spritz of shine-enhancing hairspray, our 'do was bouncy and healthy-looking all day long.

For extra oomph: Thick extensions in the same length of your hair add bulk without looking fake.

Get Lashings Of Lashes

A full flutter looks feminine and makes your eyes pop. We found a product that has gotten our natural lashes to look larger than life. Start with a swipe of mascara and coat with lash enhancing fibers. Repeat the steps for even longer lashes.

For extra oomph: An eyelash extension-session gives you the look of falsies without the work.
