Ruh roh. Even if you don’t have stubble marks or bedhead, you may have some swollen lips from all that puckerin’.
No need to worry! If you’re not uncomfortable, you may well want to leave them alone. After all, a lot of starlets are paying big money for bee-stung looking pouts these days. However, if they hurt or you’re self-conscious, they’re still pretty easy to deal with.
A cold compress can take down some swelling, but be careful not to put ice directly on your mouth, otherwise it’ll be uncomfortable and potentially drying to your lips. For some more soothing, slather on a balm with mint for a cooling sensation. Easy peasy!
One more tip? Avoid wearing lip gloss, which can make your already swollen lips look fuller. If necessary, emphasize your eyes with your makeup to draw attention away from your oversized pout.
