1. Fold a tissue in half and run it under water.

2 Squeeze it so that it is not soaking, but moist/damp.

3 Run it over your lips. This will moisten them.

4 Apply Vaseline or petroleum jelly. This will moisten and soften your lips.

5 Press your lips together for 15-30 seconds. Make sure the Vaseline/petroleum jelly is well absorbed.

6 Apply a thin coat of lipstick (it’s usually best to stick with neutral tones, but if bright reds and such work on you, go for it!)

7 Blot out by kissing off the excess lipstick on the back of your hand. DO NOT use a tissue for this, as little bits could stick to your lips.

8 Apply a thicker coat of lip gloss. This will give it shine.

9 Practice your smile.

Get some moisturizer (the thicker the better). After you’ve brushed your teeth at night, put the moisturizer on your lips, rubbing it on them and a little bit around your mouth until you cant see it. Then, get some more and dab a thick layer onto your lips so your lips look white (the color of the moisturizer). Leave it on overnight, and during the night it will soak into your lips and dry, leaving them smooth, soft and perfect.

Don’t forget to wring out the tissue. Otherwise your Vaseline and everything else will dribble onto your chin.
No red colors (for your lipstick). It’s best to stick to colors like salmon pink and the peach. Although, if you want your teeth to look whiter, apply some red lipstick. Then over that, apply some bluish toned lip gloss, which makes the white in your teeth stand out.

* Don’t stick out your lips when puckering. Adopt a sultry, sexy look that will compliment your great new lips.
* Alternatively, instead of tissue, use an old toothbrush, wet it, and lightly brush over your lips. This is great for removing dead skin. Just don’t do it too hard, or they’ll feel sore afterwards. Use a circular motion, and after you are done, rinse your lips with water and apply Vaseline and/or some other hydrating lip product to your lips. Make sure to coat your lips well. This works best at night, but for during the day, you can apply some lip gloss as the last step.

this makes your lips raw so be care full and do these steps at least 2 days before you plan on kissing or anything

Getting that perfect shade lipstick to go with that outfit or mood isnt as easy as you might think. So we always welcome new colors and shades that we can add to our collection.
From berry shades to crimson colours autumn/winter’s lip is deep, dark and sultry so we put five different lip tints to the test to see which shades suit what skin tone, how their staying power fares and their overall poutability!

Clinique Different Lipstick in A Different Grape
While the colour of this lipstick is quite plummy it actually looks a lot lighter on, which meant I could layer it up until I found a shade that suited me best. It’s also quite sheer and shiny making it look like I’d just licked my lips which I thought was quite sexy and because it’s glossy, it not only glided on really easily, it also didn’t dry out in any lip crevices and left my lips feeling super hydrated. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is keen to try out the new darker A/W shades but is looking for a more wearable take on the berry trend, plus it works just as well in the day as it does at night. heres a few below and you can click on the link for more.
