Lip Prep & Prime
Oh, the joys of a plumped, pretty pucker. Just like with your complexion, lips need a thorough prep prior to applying makeup. Sloughing away dead skin, treating dry, cracked lips, and nourishing with a sheen balm are all par for the course when it comes to lip prep.
You want a smooth canvas so that your lipstick applies effortlessly and actually accentuates your lips, instead of hindering them. But with so many amazing lip prep products now available, how do we use them… and what do they actually do?
Here we break down the three lip prep products that every lipstick-wearing lady needs to own.
Sara Happ The Lip Scrub ($24) – The OG of lip scrubs. So good, you’ll want to eat it.
Clinique Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub & Lip Balm ($20) – A sheer scrub and a tinted lip balm; the best of both worlds.
MAC Lip Scrubtious ($16) – A tasty, tinted lip treat to slough away dead skin.
Sara Happ The Sweet Clay Lip Mask ($32) – A clay mask made specifically for lips to smooth and hydrate your precious pout.
Sephora Collection Lip Mask ($3) – An easy sheet mask for lips that’ll nourish and moisturize in 15-minutes.
Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask ($26) – A leave-on lip treatment mask that soothes and smoothes with organic agave nectar, jojoba oil, and vanilla co2 extract.
Lano Lips 101 Ointment Multipurpose Superbalm ($17) – As the name suggests, this is a super balm that gives sheen and moisture to your mouth. It’s our favorite balm evaaa.
GlamGlow Poutmud Wet Lip Balm Treatment ($24) – A moisturizing balm treatment to soften and nourish a dehydrated pucker.
Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment ($26) – We love the tinted Fresh balms, but the colorless lip treatment is so moisturizing, that it will diminish fine lines around the mouth for seamless lipstick application.
