Here are 5 Steps To Luscious Lips
1.) Exfoliate – gently!
Before you do anything else, gently exfoliate the dead skin from the surface of your lips.
Use an organic lip scrub such as Lip Tea Scrub from H.Wood Beauty, a wash cloth or a soft bristled toothbrush.
2.) Lip Balm
Use lip balm every night before bed, and first thing in the morning to help protect and hydrate the lip.
Any time you exfoliate your lips follow up with lip balm, and let it soak in before going to the next step.
3.) Use A Lip Primer
Dab on either a silicone gel or a cream primer to help fill in the lines around the lip and to keep your lips looking smooth.
With a pencil the same color as your natural lip color, trace your mouth, starting in the middle and working your way out to the corners, using a lighter hand as you work your way out. Next fill your lip in with the pencil, using it as your color base.
Avoid pale or frosty shades and nudes that match your skin or are paler than your skin. If going for a flesh tone opt for a shade that has a little pink to it, and a little more depth than your own skin tone.
Dark shades will may your lips look small, overly matte finishes will make your lips look dry. Instead choose lipcolors with a sheen to them. Grapes and raspberries always look luscious and have sufficient blue undertones to really make your teeth look white.
Orange based lip color tends to make teeth look yellow.
Feeling tired? A bold pink or fuchsia will add an instant pop of life to your complexion.
