GET KISSABLE

Prep is key when it comes to the lushest of pouts. Start by exfoliating your lips to get rid of any dead skin – we like GLAMGLOW’s POUTMUD Fizzy Lip Exfoliating Treatment. Next, moisturise your lips with a hydrating balm, like Nuxe’s Reve de Miel Lip Balm or Clarins’ Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil.

FOREVER LIPS

This season’s key lip trend is a good old-fashioned ‘bullet’ lipstick – in other words, super pigmented, long-lasting colour. Our top tip for making your favourite shade last even longer? After applying your lip colour, hold a square of thin tissue against a relaxed, closed mouth. Then, take a powder brush dipped in translucent loose powder and stipple it over the tissue on the lips.

LIP KIT

The perfect pout calls for expert application, but you don’t need to be a makeup artist to get the look if you’ve got the right tools in your beauty arsenal. A lip brush ensures even application for a precise, long-lasting finish. Keep two in your kit – one for lighter colours and one for darker colours – and make sure to clean them with warm soap and water in between uses.

GLOSS UP
If you’re going for a more natural aesthetic, opt for a tinted lip crayon topped with a slick of sheer gloss. It’s the perfect partner for this season’s ultra glowy look. We love any of Revlon’s Chubby Crayons topped with our bestselling WBeauty Tinted Shimmer Lip Gloss in Apricot Smoothie or Cotton Candy for a polished but natural look.
