Lipstick Tips & Tricks for Valentine's Day
It's that time of year again. And whether you plan to spend it with that special someone, or with friends, or hugging a bottle of wine with Bridget Jones, you should be wearing some sexy lipstick. Here are two tricks to making that lipstick look even sexier and last even longer!
1. Prep your lips with a homemade sugar lip scrub. This will exfoliate your lips and remove any dry skin so that the color can go on smooth. The following recipe is pretty easy and customizable for whatever you happen to have around the house.
2 tablespoons of sugar (brown or white)
2 tablespoons of oil (olive oil or coconut works great)
1 tablespoon of honey
Generally one should exfoliate their lips at least once a week, however this recipe is gentle enough for daily use. This is an especially good treatment for your lips during the winter months when they are more prone to getting chapped.
2. Line those lips! Using a lip liner of either a similar shade to your lipstick or a lighter more neutral color, outline your lips and fill them in a bit. I personally use a light rose colored liner regardless of the shade of lipstick I'm using. This ensures that your lipstick lasts longer and it gives your lips a more full and even look.
