Not every girl is born with full lips, but a perfectly plump pout remains to be the hallmark of youth.

Models flaunted sexy smackers in vibrant shades on the Spring 2011 runways of Jil Sander, Gucci, Diane Von Furstenberg and Marni, and scene-stealers like Megan Fox, Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Hudson have all been snapped with their lust-worthy lips.

"Plump lips resemble little girl's lips which every woman wants," says Kalina Fernandez, Too Faced Cosmetics director of global artistry.

But before considering cosmetic surgery to morph your pucker, try switching up your makeup routine to make the most of what you've got.

When it comes to rocking the perfect pout this season, Fernandez predicts lip colors in red and berry tones will reign supreme, but with a more sheer or shimmering effect for the warmer months. "Fuchsia, honeysuckle and raspberry shades are exciting options to update this favorite trend," she adds.
