Smile How do I make lips "puffier" or larger?

Hi everyone!
I'm new here and this is my very first question!
What is the trick for enlarging / making someone who dosen't have that much lips look like they have nice ones?

I've learned how to add "Lipgloss" & color, but not how to actually "Create" nice lips.
Thanks in advance

Simply use the Liquify filter

liquify will make them bigger, but if you dodge and burn properly you can make them look 3d without making the size bigger.

That being said, liquify would be easyer.

Thanks for the quick replies!
If I use the liquify filter, what tool should I use within it?

Another way to do the same thing is to make a large selection around the lips...and then locate the "warp tool" inside the free transform area of the menu . It will give you 9 boxes of adjustability around the lips so that you can drag parts of the upper lip Up. Its much like the liquify tool in some ways...sometimes its simpler to use.

I will also use the clone tool and clone parts of the top lip and paint them in higher than the existing lip line to give me new fullness and shape. In this way way you can add in lip color and lip texture that matches and make the lip appear larger or differently shaped.

I've heard about using the plastic wrap filter. I haven't tried it yet though. Has anyone tried this? As it's 8-bit only, I would think it should be done very late in the processing...

Re: How do I make lips "puffier" or larger?

Thanks again to everyone for all the help!
I will try each of these tomorrow when I get to work
As far as the plastic wrap goes, I have tried it and got good results. The only thing I was missing is the actual making someone with no lips have lips. You should try the plastic wrap. I like it a lot for adding "gloss".
Thanks so much again!!

Re: How do I make lips "puffier" or larger?

My own personal opinion is to paint shadows and highlights in the logical areas. that is, shadows on the opposite of the light reflection and highights where the lightcatch would appear. Using this technique, the amount applied via layer amount (makes adjustment a bit easier) is paramount. I know. . . . a rather vague description, but if you think about it, I think you'll catch my drift. In my experience shadows and highlights can make a distinct difference that can make an obvious improvement, without actually changing the original image.
