Four Lip-Saving Tips to Give You a Celebrity-Worthy Pout
One of the first things that people notice on a person’s face is his or her lips. As such, it goes without saying that lips care is something everyone should be concerned about, since the state of one’s lips actually contributes to one’s level of attractiveness or make for a better first impression. Here are four tips you can follow to make your kisser look better than ever:
Moisturize, Moisturize, MoisturizeBefore anything else, the first rule of lips care is that it is very important to ensure that your lips are moisturized 24/7. Moisturized lips look plumper and fuller and allow for better application of lipsticks or lip glosses. Make it a habit to apply lip balm throughout the day to lock in the moisture, and slick on an extra-coating of lip cream at night to keep your kissers hydrated while you log in hours of beauty sleep. If you use lipstick regularly, you can simply add a layer of clear lip balm on your lips prior to applying color.
Exfoliate Your Lips Once a WeekJust like the rest of your face, your lips also accumulate dead or dry skin. When removal of dead or dry skin is neglected, your lips will look patchy, lip products will be harder to apply and you will definitely look unattractive with white bits of dry skin around your mouth. Exfoliating should be part of your regular lips care routine: simply mix a paste of sugar granules and petroleum jelly then rub all over your lips. Leave it on for about a minute or two, then scrub it off with an old toothbrush. This is a great, all-natural way of exfoliating your lips!
Makeup For Your Mouth
Here’s a simple yet effective trick to making the illusion of a fuller pout: Line your lips with a nude lip liner, emphasizing the bow of your upper lips and filling it in. Next, apply a matte or cream-based lipstick in your favorite color (just make sure there are no shimmers to the formula). Finally, dab on a dot of your shiniest lip gloss on the middle part of your lower lip, spreading it about halfway around the lip area. This glossy part will catch the light and make your lips look much fuller than they really are.
Red Lips in a Pinch (or a Bite)
When you are out and barefaced and you see your crush or have been called by a random friend for a quick selfie, here’s a simple trick to get reddish lips without applying any lip product. Subtly but firmly bite on your upper and lower lips with your teeth. The blood that flows to the area from the bite will give your lips a temporary red hue, which should be enough to stop your crush in his tracks when you say hi and make you look extra attractive even though you are so obviously not wearing any makeup.So there you go – four simple tricks that help you maintain healthier-looking and more attractive lips that will surely draw in the crowd!
