Make Your Way to Smooth and Shining Lips

By  March 06, 2013

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.
