Pucker Up: How To Get Fabulous Lips

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — lara @ 11:08 pm

My mother and my mother’s mother both always say that even with no other make-up, lipstick can make your face look more alive. I am in no way a make-up artist, but from experience I have found ways to take that extra in making my lips look “Old School Hollywood Glam”.


You will need a few things:

-Your lip color of choice (MAC has some great ones)

-A lip brush with a pointed tip

-LUSH Lip Scrub (Comes in great flavors, I recommend the mint. Goes for    about $9)

-Lip Balm (Burt’s Bees is recommended. Its only $3 and its all natural)

-Optional: DuWop Lip Venom. ($16) Sephora.com




Pat your wonderful lips with a warm towel all around. Take your lip scrub and put it around your lips and scrub away. The scrub is edible, so enjoy. When lips are soft, wipe away excess scrub.



Put some lip balm (not Chapstick, because it is known to dry up lips), around your lips. Wait a little until your lips have absorbed the moisture.



My mother and grandmother usually put on lip liner before putting on lipstick, but seeing as I am to clumsy to do that I just use a brush with a pointed tip. A brush goes into the hard corners your lipstick cant. With your lipstick color on the tip of your brush, gently apply your lipstick without going outside the lines. Think of it as being in pre-school and coloring a coloring book. Who said that would never come in use?



If you’re like me and you like to have plumper lips once in a while, take some lips venom on your brush and apply in on top of your lipstick. It will sting a little, but that means it’s working.


NOTE: If you want a more mat look, whip off lip balm before apply mat lipstick. For the lip venom, apply it on right after STEP 2 and wipe it off after 5 minutes, then proceed onto STEP 3.



I hope these steps help your awesome lips look even better!
