Have you ever wished you had beautiful, soft lips? It is now possible! This technique is quick and easy, and can be done in less than 4 minutes!
Brush your teeth so that they are white. You can use products that whiten your teeth or special toothbrushes no matter what you are testing as long as your teeth look better!
Apply moisturizing balm to make your lips soft. This step is very important because if you don't, the cosmetics you use can dehydrate your lips, causing them to crack or peel. Also, if it is cold outside, do not use a water-based (aqua) chap stick as the water may freeze.
Put on your favorite lipstick.
Lightly blend the lipstick with a paper towel. It's always good to do this to avoid ending up with lipstick on your teeth.
Put on some gloss. This will give just the right touch.
If you have thin lips, wear clear, shiny lipstick / gloss.
If you have luscious lips, avoid lipsticks or glosses that shine and stick with darker colors.
If your lips are very damaged and dry, rub a soft tooth bump on them for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then apply lip balm. They will be instantly soft!
If your lips are average, experiment with cool colors like red or hot pink.
You can also apply a lot of Vaseline on your lips and their contours just before going to take a shower. Do not wash off the Vaseline in the shower! Keep it on for a while and then remove it later with a damp, soft cloth. This technique actually works.
Exfoliate your lips by mixing a pinch of sugar with a drop of water. Rub the sugar water on your lips then rinse. Your lips will be perfect and soft. Make sure you put on lip balm or moisturizing lipstick afterwards so that your lips don't dry out. You should always apply balm, gloss or lipstick to keep your lips healthy. For sunny days, you should put full screen on your face as well as your lips.
Get yourself a moisturizing balm (the thicker the better) and apply it to your lips at night after brushing your teeth. Rub the treatment on your lips and around your mouth until you can't see it. Then take a bit more and apply a thick layer on your lips so that they look white (the color of the treatment / balm). Leave it on overnight, your lips should soak up the balm and become soft and perfect.
Hydrate regularly! Drinking plenty of fluids will also hydrate your lips and make them look healthy. It will also hydrate your skin!
There are all kinds of products to make the lips plump; it can range from lip balm to very good quality lip glosses. These products can make your lips look fuller and a bit more colorful without sticking.
"Nude" tones are great fun, but it's not true that flesh-colored lipsticks or glosses are the best. Very light pink or red tones usually look more natural and bring out the color of the cheeks.
When brushing your teeth, brush your lips at the same time for about 2 minutes and then apply lip balm.
Don't fade your lipstick too much or it may come off completely!
Try not to overdo it when it comes to lipstick. Your teeth shouldn't be all red too!
If you are planning on kissing someone soon; choose a less conspicuous gloss. Firecracker red lipstick might be super sexy, but you and your boyfriend would just look like two clowns after kissing.
Products that make your lips look fuller are great fun, but be careful! A number of people have had allergic reactions or have not used the product correctly. Make sure you've tested the gloss in question before use so you don't look like you've had your lips stung by a horde of wasps before going on a date.
Some people suggest using petroleum-based moisturizers like Vaseline, but they can make your lips feel drier if you don't use them regularly. Instead, use a lip balm containing Vitamin E.
