As Valentines Day is coming up i thought I'd make a little post about how to get your lips all soft and kissable! Whether you're with a long term partner or maybe on a date, if you're going to be kissing, lets get your lips ready!
First, i like to exfoliate my lips using a lip scrub like the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub to remove all dry or dead skin from my lips. I like to use a toothbrush with this to really remove any unwanted skin and leave my lips smooth and polished. Next, i like to apply lip balm to keep my lips hydrated and plump! My favourite is the Vaseline Cocoa Butter as it really makes my lips very soft and hydrated without feeling greasy on my lips. I like to apply this throughout the day and before i go to bed too, to keep my lips nice all day long!
If you're a girl who prefers to go for the nude lip, my two favourite options are the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in "Native" (£15) or the Deborah Milano Shine Creator Lipstick in "1" (£8.50*). Whenever i apply a nude lip, i like to apply any excess foundation from my brush to my lips before applying lipstick.
When it comes to pink lips, i much prefer lighter pinks - not too barbie-esque. My favourite pink lip products are the Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks in "101" or the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in "Tokyo" which are both lovely on. Very light and pretty, but not too out there! I love using the Maybelline ColorSensational Lipliner in "Sweet Pink" with either as it's the perfect "my-lips-but-better" colour.
I'm of the belief, you can't beat a good red lip for a special occasion, it's sexy and timeless. Some of my most used red lip products are the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in "024 Red Diva", NYX Megashine Lipgloss in "Perfect Red" and Rimmel Apocalips In "Big Bang". All three of these products are very bright and stay on for ages.
Which colour will you be going for? I'll be going for a nude lip! Tell me in the comments!
Lots of love,
