Lovely Lips


Flaky dry lips are never fun. Especially when you’ve got a date or an event to show off at! Need a few tips to get that kisser looking shiny and soft? Well look no further.

Get lips smooth and soft by rubbing all the dry bits off with a warm CLEAN washcloth before you go to bed. Follow with a coat of hydrating lip balm ( Id suggest EOS. The strawberry is my all time favorite).

Ease into the evening by applying a darker or redder color over your daytime lipstick and blend away!

Your lipstick rubbing off and losing its color and shine throughout the day? To make it last longer, let the color sit for a few minutes after applying, blot with a tissue, dust with a powder, and apply one more coat.

Cheeks feeling flushed? Put on a bold color lipstick, neutral tones will only make pink cheeks stand out.

For an easy to apply lipliner, warm it up first by pinching it between clean fingers for a few seconds. After that, it should glide on easily.

Your lipstick bleeding? Pat a thin layer of concealer around your lips to keep that color where it belongs.

Smile when you put on your lipstick or gloss, its the best way to ensure full coverage, corners included!

Need soft lips? Combine honey, sugar, and a dab of Vaseleine and rub on your lips to exfoliate and clean off those flaky dry bits. Theres a plus to this one! Its edible and it even tastes good! ūüėČ

2. GO WASH YOUR FACE. Yea im talking to you. right now! And rinse it in cold water. i know, its a common tip but trust me, the more you wash, the cleaner you get, and the cold water will help to close your pores, making your skin appear smoother and flawless. Try at least once a day.

3. EXFOLIATE. Exfoliation really does wonders. While facewash can only get so deep in your skin, exfoliators really help to open your pores and flush out all the impurities hiding inside your skin.

4. GO MAKE A FACE MASK.  Yes go make a face mask. A natural one at that. You dont even need to use it right now just go whip one up and put it in the fridge. By having one handy and made, youll be more motivated to use it in the nearby future. theyre easy and fun to use, especially if you have friends around to do it with you.

5. TAKE OFF YOUR MAKEUP WHEN YOU DONT NEED IT ON. are you sitting at home right now? bored off your rocker with makeup on? Go get out that oil free makeup remover and clean it all off. Yes all of it. Makeup clogs your pores, its a simple fact. The more clogged your pores get, the more impurities your makeup is holding in. If you really dont need the makeup on, get rid of it.

6. CHANGE YOUR PILLOW CASES. yea i know it sounds cheesy but think about it. if your sleeping on the same pillow everynight, all the face oils and impurities from your face, are rubbing off onto your pillow which you are then pushing your cheek against for a good 8 hours. every night you repeat this process, basically basking your face in past filth. And don’t even get me started on all the hair products your pillows implore! Just go change it. Yes now.
