My Lips Are Sealed: Start the New Year Out Lip-alicious!


Our lips may be sealed, but they will make a statement as we welcome 2018. Here are four tips that will make your pout stand out in the crowd.

Keep your lips moisturized and smooth with a lip scrub like MAC Cosmetics Lip Scrubtious and Clinique’s Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub & Lip Balm. Exfoliating buffs away dry and flaky skin leaving you with the perfect canvas for your lip products.

Apply lip balm daily and as needed. Our lips don’t contain any oil glands, therefore they don’t produce natural oils. Burt’s Bees or Nivea lip products are two examples of amazing products that keep moisture locked in while also protecting your lips from dry conditions.

Don’t skip lining your lips. Lining your lips makes them look more defined and helps your lipstick last longer. Fill in your lips completely with the lip pencil and then apply your lipstick. The liner helps hold the lipstick in place longer and reduces the number of times you will have to reapply your lipstick.

Set your lipstick color in place with translucent powder. Yes, really! Apply your lip color, take a piece of tissue and blot your lips. Apply the lipstick again, then apply some of the powder directly to the lips or over the tissue.
