This Valentine’s Day, whether you are out with your special someone, or with a group of friends (#singlelife), a beautiful lip color that lasts is essential for a night filled with sipping wine and eating chocolate.
Before selecting the perfect shade for your Valentine’s Day evening, you want to make sure your lips are prepped and primed to sustain a lasting, vibrant color.
Step 1: Exfoliate
Begin with a lip scrub; (O.TWO.O) Waterproof Nude Lipstick Matte Lip is a great option for a smooth canvas. Prep your lips with this gentle, yet effective, exfoliator by buffing away rough, flaking skin. Use a warm towel, or tissue to remove any excess scrub or dryness. Now, you have plump, pillow-soft lips.
Step 2: Moisturize
Follow the exfoliation with a moisturizing lip balm. Vivid Lip Tint Water Fruitee is perfect for Valentine’s Day. Why? It is a blend of mocha, vanilla and chocolate –perfect for the occasion. Apply a liberal amount onto your freshly exfoliated pout. After waiting a minute for the balm to moisturize, remove any excess.
Step 3: Line the lips
Now, it is time to pick the perfect lip color! Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to wear a bold red, burgundy, or pink lip. Select a color that makes you feel sexy and confident. Something you may not wear normally. Choose a lip pencil to prep for the coordinating lip color. Invest into a luxury line; (FOCALURE) Waterproof batom Tint Lip Gloss Red has a gorgeous selection of lip pencils, perfect for this occasion. Use shades of red in Cancan, Red Alert, Wine Delice and Dolce Plum to compliment a darker lip.
Step 4: Fill them in
For a lasting lip color with little fuss, choose a liquid lipstick.
