Oh, Valentine’s Day. Is there a better time of year besides February to show off our flirty side and look our best? Well, I don’t think there is! So if you’re going out with your S.O. or planning a Galentine’s night, either way, you can’t go wrong with a perfect pout. I’m here to share Enza beauty bloggers’ 4 tips for your lips and how to keep them kissable all day (and night) long!
PREP & PLUMP
If you’re exfoliating your skin as diligently as you should be this winter season, don’t forget to give your lips some TLC! Pucker up, and slough off all those dead, dry skin cells with a product designed JUST for that. Or, if you’d rather, try this DIY recipe below – it’s all edible (yum!) and works wonders on your pucker!
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
Gently massage this delicious mixture over your lips from corner to corner for a couple minutes. Wipe off with a clean towel, and voila! Your lips will feel SO smooth, and your lip balm and lipstick will go on even smoother! It’s So. Easy.
After you’ve prepped your lips to get them as silky-smooth as possible, it’s time to reach for your fave shade. Whether it’s the perfect pencil for your pout or that luscious gloss you can’t get enough of, this trick for applying color to your lips will save you time and smudges! And what better time is there than Valentine’s Day to accent your cupid’s bow?! (My favorite lip color? Jane Iredale’s PureMoist Lipstick in Cindy – it’s a deeper red that works for anyone!)
Start by drawing an X-shape from the top of your lip diagonally to the bottom of your top lip. Line your bottom lip in the same width of the X, then add smaller lines around the edges of your lips. Connect the
dots lines, fill in, and you’re set!
Now that you’ve spent your time perfecting your lip look, you don’t want it smudging or smearing on everything your lips touch! The trick to keep your lipstick stained to only your lips all day involves a tissue and some powder. Watch THIS video for the full tutorial! Seriously, it works!
