Since joining TikTok in May, actor Anne Hathaway has only given us three videos — but the tip she drops in her latest clip, filmed on-set while shooting a Shiseido campaign, is worth clicking follow.

While sitting in longtime hairstylist Adir Abergel’s chair, the rosy-cheeked Hathaway mentions that she felt like her top lip looked a little “wilted”—cue a dig around Abergel’s hair kit, where he procures a hairpin. (Editor’s note: The difference between a Bobby pin and a hairpin is the size of the opening; a hairpin is wider and more U-shaped.)

From there, she gets to tap-tap-tapping the hair tool across her lip. Hathaway says this movement helps to “get the circulation going” in her lips, instantly giving a little plumping effect. However, her tutorial comes with a necessary warning: “Don’t stab yourself too hard, because you can draw blood,” she says.

While Anne Hathaway’s lips may need nothing but a quick hairpin hack to look fresh and plump, there’s lots more one can do to brighten up their pout for special events. For one, plumping lip glosses can work beautifully to zhuzh up a pucker — Huda Beauty‘s Spicy Thermo Plumping Lip Balm does wonders — another trick in many a makeup artist’s beauty book is the art of overlining lips to create a fuller effect. Another favorite among the pros? Gradient lips. The next time you want to add a little extra volume to your mouth, try playing with colors to enhance the contours of your lips.
