Let’s be honest, when it comes to skincare our lips always seem to get a raw deal. We’re quick to apply a basic balm, and that’s about all the acknowledgement we give them. However, when it comes to lipsticks we spend a fortune. But what we really need to ask ourselves is; what use is an expensive lipstick if we’re applying it to an uneven and unloved canvas?
Here are our top three lip tips, that you all should be following…
You don’t have to spend a small fortune on an expensive scrub, you can make your own at home (see our DIY lip scrubs here), but if you don’t fancy that, LUSH do a fantastic Bubblegum scrub for only £5.50.
Exfoliate your lips at least once a week and you’ll soon see the difference.
Also, in hot weather or on holiday, make sure your lip products contain SPF! It’s not just your skin that burns. Keeping hydrated is vital for soft and supple lips.
We love MAC’s lip primer, it’s gives you lips a kiss of moisture and your lipstick applies perfectly on top.
If you want to enhance your lip colour, use a complementary lip liner. Define the edge, and feather into the centre of the lips. Then top up with your favourite lipstick to enjoy a fuller longer wearing colour.
