Ex­fo­li­ate Your Lips

Hair - - Lip Love -

Flaky lips look dull and life­less; hence the need to ex­fo­li­ate them. Use a tooth­brush and gen­tly brush it over your lips to take off the dead skin. Rus­tle up a home­made scrub of honey and sugar, and use it on your lips to get rid of dead skin as well as emit a de­li­cious glow. By fol­low­ing this rou­tine for a day or two be­fore date night, your lips will have a nice rosy tinge and will be soft and sup­ple.

Draw Out­side The Lines

Use a lip liner that matches your lip­stick. For­get ev­ery­thing you learned in school about draw­ing in­side the lines. Draw out­side your lips by trac­ing it just slightly above your nat­u­ral lip line. Fill in your lips with lip­stick and say hello to a fuller pout.

En­hance Dark Col­ors

Dark col­ored lip­sticks can make your lips look flat­ter. Hence, to cre­ate an il­lu­sion of plump lips, make use of lip glosses over your lip colour to make your lips stand out. The re­flec­tive qual­ity of the gloss will make your pout shine, lit­er­ally!

En­hance Cupid’s Bow

With the help of your lip liner, draw an X in the cen­tre of your top lip. Fill your lips in with lip­stick, and play up your look by dab­bing a tinge of shim­mery gloss or pow­der in the cen­tre of your top and bottom lip. This de­fined Cupid’s Bow will def­i­nitely make your pout look selfie-ready.

Sting Ther­apy

This D.I.Y home so­lu­tion shows in­stant re­sults; mix one or two drops of cin­na­mon oil with one drop of co­conut oil. Ap­ply this so­lu­tion on your lips and let it sit for 15 min­utes be­fore you ap­ply your lip­stick. You will ex­pe­ri­ence a slight tin­gling, burn­ing sen­sa­tion, which will wear off. The af­ter re­sult will lead your lips to swell up a bit (good­bye, lip fillers). If the burn­ing per­sists, wash it off with cold wa­ter im­me­di­ately.
