From Adam Collard’s Lothario ways, to Laura Anderson’s journey from heartbreak to Prince Charming and Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham’s epic love story, the nation were completely gripped – and fans cannot get enough, even after the show ended.
But one thing that completely took the nation by storm was the ladies’ talk of cosmetic enhancements, with Megan Barton Hanson being just one of the villa mates who has confirmed she’s often changed her look – and mostly, her lips – prior to entering the ITV2 match-making show.
Speaking exclusively to OK! Online, leading Harley Street practitioner Rupesh Shah has revealed the safest and most successful way to get a plumped pout – and achieve the most natural look possible.
“Lip augmentation is a non-surgical procedure, which is becoming more and more popular due to the amazing results it can provide, and the safety and simplicity of the procedure in experienced hands,” Rupesh exclusively revealed.
“It’s important to use a ‘trusted’ lip filler brand like Juvederm Volbella or Volift – the smoothest and longest lasting version of Juvederm – which I and many other leading cosmetic practitioners use and trust worldwide. They are hyaluronic acid based which is a substance which already exists in your body.”
Revealing his top tips to gain a fuller pout which looks completely natural, Rupesh added: “Always have a full consultation before your treatment, and have all your questions noted on a piece of paper so you don’t forget anything – as every patient has a different goal for their lips.
“Another tip is to always remember what is natural or subtle to one person, may not be the same to another. For me, the ‘natural looking’ full lips have a slightly bigger bottom lip than the top lip. This slightly bigger bottom lip gives you the sexy pout.
“The practitioners experience, techniques and the product used all add to the final result achieved.
“A subtle look is achieved by working with your own lip shape and not changing it. I define the vermillion border and cupids bow and follow by adding more volume to the lip to give it more fullness.”
When it comes to a philosophy, Rupesh works by the words “less is more” to ensure work won’t look overstretched and overdone – a main worry for those who turn to cosmetic enhancements.
“You really don’t want your lips to be overfilled,” he added. “I would only use one syringe (1ml) per seating. When it comes to lips, take it slow, the last thing you want is overly filled lips that you may regret.”
