Dry, flaky or chapped lips are the worst canvas for lipstick. To maintain your perfect pout, make sure start by exfoliating your lips with a lip exfoliator. We love the ethical lip care collection from LUSH and you’ll always find LUSH Mint Julips fully stocked in our kit! Made from seven natural ingredients, it’s totally edible so scrub away and then just lick it off!
Another great way to buff lips is to apply a lip balm to your upper and lower lip, then using a clean toothbrush or new mascara wand, gently scrub your lips. This will remove any dead skin cells, but also stimulate blood flow and bring more colour to the lips. Use a tissue to wipe away any excess flakes and voila! You’ll have a perfect pout in no time.
If you’re conscious of having thin lips, try extending your natural lip line using a neutral-toned lip liner. Apply lipstick over the top but be careful not to extend the lip line too much. To maximise results, grab one of the lovely Estee Lauder or No7 collagen boosting lip glosses.
