Adding a swipe of colour to your lips is the perfect way to POP during the holiday season. To ensure an extra special time under the mistletoe follow these three steps:
Exfoliation! You should be doing this at least once a week during the winter months, as your lips tend to dry out quite quickly. Its totally easy and you can use products you already have in your kitchen. Brown sugar and honey is my favourite combo, or TARTE makes a delicious one called Maracuja Lip Exfoliant. Use your finger tip to lightly massage the exfoliant in a circular motion for about 5 seconds. Be gentle!
Now that your pout is baby soft, apply a liner directly along your lip line. Try and avoid going over your natural lip outline, to avoid that fishy look. Remember to use a lip liner similar to the shade you’re going fill in the rest of your lips with.
Finally, apply your favourite red or berry shade to your lips! I tend to use moisturizing lipsticks or tints, in order to keep your shade looking lucious all night. My personal holiday favourites are, Estee Lauder, Pure Colour Long Lasting Lipstick in Scarelt Siren, Illamasqua Sheer Lip Gloss in Tantrum, and Too Faced Moisture Plumping Lip Tint in Bigger Berry.
Pucker Up and enjoy the Holidays!
