We’ve all agreed that we aren’t giving up on our lip products even while we’re wearing masks, right? That being said, now more than ever, we need a lip look that lasts. Not only do we need to make it through average daily wear, but now it has to last through masking and unmasking. Here is what works for us.
1.) Soothe N’ Smooth Lip Balm and Exfoliator
Everyone knows the importance of lip balm and moisturizing, but people often overlook lip exfoliation. This product is the perfect duo so that you never forget to do both. Before you begin doing your makeup, use the lip exfoliator to buff away dead skin cells. This also helps to ensure that lipstick won’t settle into the cracks of your lips. After exfoliating, smooth on the Lip Balm to lock in moisture and to help protect and soften lips. Well exfoliated and hydrated lips will appear more plump and create the perfect canvas for any lip color.
2.) Lip Difference Lip Primer
Now that your lips are perfectly prepped, it’s time to start creating your lip look. Like any good makeup look, this one starts with a primer. Lip Difference is a vitamin infused treatment that not only nourishes your lips, but primes them for long-lasting, no-bleed lip color application. Apply to both your top and bottom lip as you would a lip balm.
3.) Waterproof Mechanical Lip Definer Pencils
If you have never used lip liner before, now is the perfect time to start. Lip liner is an incredibly important step because it helps keep lipstick in place without feathering or bleeding. It’s like an additional level of priming. It is especially useful for those with thinner lips to give you the option to overline them for a fuller look. Our Lip Definer pencils are formulated to be waterproof, smudge-proof, and provide all-day color. Trust us, you don’t want to skip this step.
4.) Lip Color
Now that you are perfectly primed, it’s time to apply your lipstick. Our lipsticks are formulated for long-wear and minimal touch ups throughout the day. Our semi-matte hues keep the lips from looking dry or flat like some matte shades tend to do. They are also enriched with aloe, shea butter, and Vitamin E to keep lips hydrated all day.
5.) Liquid Lip Shine
For the final touches, we recommend using our Liquid Lip Shine. If you’re looking for a more glossy lip you should apply all over the lip after applying your lipstick. Otherwise, you may just want to add a touch to the center areas of your lips to make them appear fuller.
