Chapped lips are not the most desirable canvas for applying lipstick or shine. Get rid of dry, flaky skin with a good scrub using brown sugar or a store-bought version.
Applying lip primer acts as a foundation for your lip color, which allows it to go on smoother and last longer. Think of it as a much-needed base step.
To really define your lips and prepare them for a final colorific touch, it’s important to trace around them with a nude liner. This will keep your lipstick or gloss from feathering out around your mouth.
The best finishing touch for a perfect pout is a pop of color, but you don’t want to undermine all that meticulous prep work with a gloss that’ll make lips too sticky or, even worse, suck the moisture right out of them. COVERGIRL® LipPerfection™ Jumbo Gloss Balm is infused with shea and mango butters to leave lips nourished, and the formula goes on soft, smooth, and shiny. With 16 different lip-loving shades to choose from, we may have just found our everyday balm for the season.
