Lip Tips - For Great Looking Lips!

by: Sarah H

There are a few tricks you can try to get those great looking kissable lips again, first off you should exfoliate your lips with the use of a toothbrush, it puts back color in your lips and leaves it feeling invigorated. You should use a lip balm or a moisturizing lipstick to keep your lips moist at all times, because dry lips are the number one cause of cracked and chafing lips. It is also recommended that you drink lots of water to help keep your lips hydrated from the inside out.

For those with thin lips, you should use a lip lining pencil and highlight the formation of your lips starting from right below your nose, you will notice that your lips form a small "M" shape, so emphasize this shape with your lip lining pencil, do this twice in order to get a good outline, now put on your lipstick following the outline you have just created with your lip lining pencil and you will notice that the "M" completely disappears and your lips looks a lot more as though they are pouting. Isn't this just an absolute fantastic little trick.

Now you should have realized by now that as you grow older your lip color seems to change and they are not as bright as they once were, this can also make you seem tired and look older than you really are, but not to worry help is here. You can soon fix this by applying a little extra color, be sure to carry some extra lipstick in your handbag at all times and whenever you get a chance just dab some on your lips to keep them looking bright and rich and soon you will be feeling good about your lips again.

If you have lipstick that feathers you should use a lip lining pencil to completely color the surface of the skin followed by a little touch of colorless lip gloss on top and you are all set to go. Another good tip is to keep a powder compact handy for emergency touch ups around the mouth especially as oil on your face can be an open invitation to start the feathering process all over again.

In the hot season such as summer, lips can become very parched and so it is important for you carry a lip balm that contains SPF factors with you at all times. It will help to keep your lips soft and smooth by applying a protective lip balm every day during the summer. If you decide that you would like to have your lips augmented, be sure to present your doctor with a photo of what you would like your lips to look like, this will help your physician in better planning how he is going to proceed with the operation.
