Congratulations! You are getting married! Nothing says love like a kiss. To keep your pout perfect – here are some of the best tips! Enjoy!
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Whether you are a lipstick lover or a gloss girl – moisturized lips are always sexy.
The night before, slough off any dry skin on your lips with an extra toothbrush. I always keep one in the bathroom just for lips after brushing my teeth. Apply a lip balm. Lips will feel like new by morning. Vaseline also works very well.
Nivea’s “A Kiss of Protection” features sunflower and jojoba oils as well as vitamin E and an SPF of 30 to keep your pout pristine.
The more natural the colour and texture, the less fuss and worry about making sure your lips look perfect at all times especially after kisses, eating and drinking. I love M.A.C Lipglass in Prrr. The colour is gorgeous, natural and looks great on every skin tone.
Line your lips
If you are going to be wearing a vibrant lip colour, lining lips first will keep the colour on for much longer. Lip liner is also great if you want to change the shape of your lips by making them symmetrical or bigger. Apply the same colour lip liner (the dark liner and light lipstick which I call “oreo mouth” days are long gone.) to your entire lip. Blot. Then apply lipstick. A lip brush creates pristine results. Blot again. Touch up as needed.
Use a concealer brush with face powder to line around the outside of your lips to prevent lipstick from bleeding.
I love the Rimmel London Eggagerate Automatic Lipliner. It keeps lipstick from bleeding, comes in a great variety of shades and is very long lasting without drying out your lips.
The only great stain – Lipstain!
Lip stain is great if you are looking for a sheer hint of colour that lasts for hours. I love the line by Benefit as it can be used for cheeks as well. Apply to the apples of the cheeks and lips with the little brush and blend in with fingers. May be layered for a more dramatic look too. Benetint (Berry), Cha Chatint (Peach/Coral), Lollitint and Posietint (Warm Pink) look great on all skin tones.
Use straws as much as possible when it comes to drinking. I like to keep a few of the covered ones you can get from Starbucks in my purse, just in case.
