A beauty expert has revealed a genius technique for getting fuller, fuller lips without the need for fillers – a brilliant alternative for anyone who can’t get treatment during the pandemic or those who are too nervous to try it out.
New York-based beautician Danna Omari revealed in a viral TikTok video that you can use a special massage technique to ‘plump, tone and strengthen your mouth muscle – the orbicularis oris’, giving you a fuller looking pout.
In the clip, Danna is seen squeezing her lips between her thumb and forefinger, pulling them out to form a duck-like pout, then ‘kneading’ the area around it with her fingers.

She slowly moves her fingers from one side of her mouth to the other, squeezing her lips before bringing both hands to the center of her pout.
Danna then slowly slides her fingers out from the center to the outer corners of her mouth, holding her lips firmly.
“Chubby, tone, strengthen the mouth muscle!” she wrote in the caption, while also explaining her technique in more detail.
“Take your thumb and index finger, pull gently and knead back and forth,” she wrote. “Do this every day to strengthen the muscle.”
Danna warned that you should make sure that your lips and face are not covered with products that can smooth the skin, and explains that you need a “good grip” to get the best results.
“Make sure you don’t have too much slip so you have a good grip,” she wrote.

Warning: Danna advises that people who have filler should not do the technique as it can fix it or make your lips look lumpy and uneven

In the comments section, the beautician also revealed that the technique will help reduce the appearance of smile lines.
The video sparked a lot of interested comments, with many users wondering if the technique would really work and how long it would take them to see results.
One person who tried the massage urged other users to try it for themselves and wrote in the comments, “It works!”
In another video, Danna – who specializes in facial massage techniques – reveals that you can also use a gua sha tool to train your mouth muscle, while also relieving tension in the face.
