BN Beauty: Watch Lola OJ’s 10-Step Tutorial on “How to Create Fuller Lips”

Lola OJ

Vlogger and makeup artist Lola OJ has a simple step-by-step tutorial on how to get fuller lips!

Step 1: Moisturise your lips

Use a smooth lip moisturiser to gently cream your lips.

Step 2: Prime your lips

Apply a matte primer over your lips in preparation for the next step.

Step 3: Apply a thin layer of foundation

Using a beauty sponge, evenly apply a fine layer of foundation directly over your lips and lip area to neutralise your natural lip colour.

Step 4: Line your lips

Following the natural shape of your lips, use a dark brown lip liner that will helps define lips. Line your lips with the lipliner, you can draw just a little but above your natural lip line but do not overdo it as it will show.

Step 5: Fill in your lip edges

Begin to fill in the corners of your lips with the lip liner, apply the lip liner downwards towards the inner parts of your lips.

Step 6: Apply your nude/brown lipstick

Apply your matte lipstick directly on top of your lip liner, leaving a very minimal amount of space between the lip liner and the lipstick.

Step 7: Reline your lips

With the same lip liner, go over your original line to blend the liner and lipstick together.

Step 8: Neaten your lips

Using a tiny amount of concealer and a concealer brush, begin to neaten the edges so that the lines become clean and smooth.

Step 9: Set the concealer with powder

Using a setting powder and setting brush, go over the concealer you have applied with a setting powder so that it will blend in naturally with the rest of your face.

Step 10: Extra matte lips

Using a clear or lightly coloured powder, using your index finger, dap a little bit of powder lightly all over your lipstick to give the lipstick an extra matte finish.

Then you now have the finished look!

      Yuck…. It’s a turnoff, the amount of crap people load on their faces to get a certain effect. We live in such a superficial world now, it’s so sad. When you wanna kiss your man nko? Is he supposed to be licking your dusting powder and your dirty foundation? Shio ?

    • Silly Papa February 9, 2016 at 10:24 pm

      Then you shouldn’t have opened the article stupid. Clearly the headline doesn’t say anything about the economy

    Such a long process but came out beautiful. See me watching like it’s an exam

  • Vanessa February 9, 2016 at 7:56 pm

    Is this a joke? I’m going to assume the video is targeted at ‘white’ Nigerians (who I am not sure exist). But majority of Nigerians already have naturally fuller lips, so no thanks.

  • Tincan February 9, 2016 at 8:34 pm

    Ahhhh, girls are trying o. It looks nice, I have to say beht, the heffort… I suppose it’s too late for me now.

    I know this is a beauty blog but instead of talking about how to make our natural big lips even bigger …women! Enugu state lawmakers just rejected a bill in support of women’s rights and anti discrimination against women. Check it out!

      The beauty of life is that there can be more than one conversation happening at once, this doesn’t not take away from world issues lol its simply a post about beauty 🙂

    The outlining of her cupid’s bow is extremely drastic, unnatural and comical. The average black girl has thick lips anyway, do we really want fuller lips than we already have? seriously? Is this what the Kardashians’ have turned us into?

    • sandra February 10, 2016 at 2:11 am

      From what I can see, she already has a natural cupids bow! So yeah it may look unnatural to you, but different strokes for different folks I guess…

  • Hawt Talk With Tosan February 9, 2016 at 11:16 pm

    I love your hair!!!

  • Swizzle February 10, 2016 at 2:01 am

    Why the concealer, foundation, on top lip, na wah ooo. are they not meant for the face.

  • molarah February 10, 2016 at 6:58 pm

    Fuller lips tutorial? By an African woman? On an African blog? Either I just entered an alternate universe or y’all have just lost the plot.

    What next? A thicker nose tutorial?

    • Engoz February 10, 2016 at 8:27 pm


    • Yandy February 11, 2016 at 6:55 pm

      Why would you assume that having full african features are a negative thing? Why if you can choose to create a smaller nose, can’t you wish to create a wider one?

      Also not every african woman has full lips… #FoodForThought
