I’ve always loved lipstick. And although I wear more subdued colors these days, I’m not afraid to wear bold and bright colors when the time is right. But you know what makes lipstick even more beautiful? Super soft exfoliated lips. Nothing shows off a pretty lip color better than having healthy and moisturized lips to start. So consider this DIY Plumping Lip Scrub the first step in beautiful lips. It’ll be your new lipstick primer you can’t live without, except only cost pennies to make and tastes delicious too.

DIY Plumping Lip Scrub
What You’ll Need for DIY Plumping Lip Scrub:
- 1 TBS Brown Sugar
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 tsp honey
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp coconut oil
Let’s talk about the ingredients now.
- Brown sugar is a natural exfoliate. This will get off all those flaky dead skin cells that make your lips look and feel dry.
- Coconut oil is a natural moisturizer. It also gently cleans the lips and provides a nice shine if going for a natural look or base for lipstick.
- CINNAMON! The star of the lip-plumping show brings blood flow to the lips making them look plumper. (NOTE: The cinnamon will burn your lips a little but it won’t cause any harm.)
- Honey is also a natural lip-plumper and exfoliator! Who knew? But very sweet.
Of course, the effect is only temporary. But with time this scrub will help reveal healthier lips anyway! Use it before heading out for a dinner or anywhere you’d throw on some pretty lipstick.
How to use DIY Plumping Lip Scrub
1.) Simply mix all the ingredients together.
2.) apply with your index finger and rub in circular motions for several minutes. The longer you can go the better.
3.) Apply your favorite lip liner and lipstick to show them off. If you have some gloss, go ahead and end with it. Gloss can also help make lips loop plumper.
Right now, I am loving YULIP Beauty clean lipsticks.
They are gluten-free, paraben-free, moisturizing, non-toxic, fragrance-free, and beautiful! Here are just a few other reasons they are my go-to lipstick these days:
1.) They are highly pigmented.
This means you get a beautiful color after one application. If you haven’t tried highly-pigmented makeup yet you will love it.
2.) They keep my lips moisturized all day.
No need for extra lip balm! This makes me happy because a lot of previous lipsticks I used dried out my lips throughout the day.
3.) They are made with only food-grade ingredients.
No, you don’t want to eat them. But Yulip lipsticks are 100% safe and nothing bad gets absorbed into your skin.
4.) They are also allergy tested and dermatologist approved.
5.) Best yet? You can get them on Amazon!
Amazon even named Yulips Angry Rose and Lip Almighty Bunong as Amazon’s Choice!
Now let’s do some math. This lip scrub only takes 10 seconds to make and two minutes to use. And because you can get beautiful lipsticks on Amazon Prime…if we add those up…that means you can have beautiful plump lips in two days flat. Whatcha waiting for? 😉
