3 Steps to bold kissable lips!!!
Absolutely looove bold lips and it’s a subtle way to incorporate a pop of colour to your spring look! I’m particularly obsessed with orange-red lips lately as shown here on Alexa Chung. It’s such a playful and vibrant shade that compliments all skin tones. This lip colour can be achieved by wearing Tarte’s LipSurgence Natural Lip Tint in “Spirited”, this product is amazing because it’s quite pigmented for a lip tint and nondrying. Unfortunately, applying bold colours can sometimes enhance the appearance of chapped lips, especially when using highly opaque lip colours with a matte finish. But if you follow my simple steps you’ll be ok, I promise. First, you must exfoliate! I would recommend using Lush’s Sweet Lips Lip Scrub, not only is this natural edible scrub an effective way to smooth your lips, it tastes just like freshly baked chocolate chip cookies! How can you resist?! Ok, after exfoliating, apply a super hydrating treatment balm like Josie Maran’s Argan Lip Treatment to restore moisture, this will instantly make your lips feel soft and supple (it’s also a great product to use as a night treatment to maintain the youthful fullness of your lips). And lastly, apply your bold lip colour of choice! And voilà! Luscious, kissable lips just in time for Valentines day! Photo cred: MCM Worldwide Blog, Blush.com, Lush.ca, JosieMaranCosmetics.com
