Lipcare routine for a gorgeously plump pout!
Your lips can be the most alluring part of your face, drawing people’s attention to what you’re saying. Just think – for every word that you say – somebody might be glancing at your pretty puckers! Taking better care of your lips isn’t just an aesthetic thing either: healthy looking lips can make you look fresher, whereas the opposite can result to you seeming dreary. So if you’re eager to start the journey to smooth, plump, and luscious lips, check out this simple 4-step routine.
STEP 1: GOODBYE, OLD CHAP
After your evening cleansing routine, get rid of dry and flaky skin on your lips with a gentle scrub. The TARTE Pout Prep Lip Exfoliant offers dual action as an exfoliator and moisturiser. Its micro-fine sugar granules buff away the lip’s surface, while its nourishing botanical ingredients sink deeply for that hydrating and firming effect. Do this once or twice a week (as needed) to reveal a silky-smooth pout!

STEP 2: TREAT YO’ LIPS
If you thought that only your facial skin ages and wrinkles, we’ve got some bad news for you. Lips are just as prone to premature ageing due to sun exposure, smoking, and other lifestyle habits. If you’ve always had problematic lip textures or if you just want to work ahead of the clock – the FRESH Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy could be your saviour. An award-winning lip serum and primer, it smoothens out fine lines and improves the elasticity of your lips and the area around it. The result? Plump and more defined smoochers!

STEP 3: KEEP BALM AND CARRY ON
After prepping and treating your lips, it’s time to seal the deal with a moisturising balm. Touted as a ‘holy grail’ product in many online reviews, the BURT’S BEES 100% NATURAL MOISTURISING BALM contains a blend of shea butter and botanical waxes that give your lips the lovin’ that it needs. Many people swear by the fast relief that it gives dry and chapped lips (especially when you’re travelling overseas), as well as the natural, healthy-looking sheen that it leaves (unlike glosses that have an icky shine).

STEP 4: BRING ON THE SHADE
One great thing about maintaining a lipcare routine is that you’ll always be lipstick-ready. Whether you want to wear a vampy red shade or a girly pink hue, just swipe it on! If you’re looking for a trendy matte finish without the extreme drying feel, try the MAC COSMETICS Matte Lipstick that gives you high colour payoff in a creamy rich formula. It’s so comfortable – you forget it’s matte! As with any MAC product, there are seemingly a million shades for you to play with no matter the mood.
