The festive season is almost upon us, and in the run-up to the holidays, we know that many of you will have social events planned. So, in this week’s article, we thought we’d help you with your party makeup! Yes, it’s time to get perfect lips for Christmas kisses. Read on for our top three tips.
How to Get Perfect Lips for Christmas Kisses:
Preparation makes for a Perfect Pout:
Whether you choose a gloss, lipstick or a lip stain, having a perfect base on which to apply is key to a flawless finish. So, exfoliation and hydration are essential!
Here are a couple of product recommendations to help you with this.
Firstly, Jane Iredale has a convenient 2-in-1 product. The Sugar & Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper allows you to exfoliate your lips with sugar side, and then apply the lip plumper for moisture and a hint of colour.
We also love Pure Fiji’s Coconut Sugar Lip Polish. It’s another 2 in 1 product to smooth and refine lips. Coconut sugar rub and cold-pressed organic coconut and dilo oils will buff away dry, flaky skin and infuse moisture, leaving your lips soft and supple.
A freshly sharpened lip pencil is an essential step in lippie application; it will enhance the natural shape of your lips and will ensure a longer-lasting finish.
After applying your favourite colour, follow these three simple steps to keep your lipstick in place.
- Blot with a clean tissue.
- Take a second tissue and separate the two sheets, so you have a single-ply tissue. Hold this gently to your lips, then, using a brush, dust a little translucent loose powder across your lips over the tissue. We love Jane Iredale’s Amazing Matte™ Loose Finish Powder.
- Finally, reapply a top swish of colour.
