So start with a nice smooth base for your lipstick and exfoliate! Nothing crazy, just something gentle and not too abrasive. I usually use a tiny bit of an exfoliating peel gel.
My favorite is the Peter Thomas Roth FIRMx!
And of course don't overdo it- your lips are sensitive!
So I'm using:
Buxom Va Va Plump in Getting Warmer
MAC Prep n Prime lip primer
Milani Color Statement Lip Liner in Spice
A good lip is nothing without it's liner!
I usually over-line a little bit (yes, even though I get filler) because I love a dramatic lip.
Once that part is done I apply a thin layer of the primer, which usually dries down in less than a minute.
I even blot before the primer settles, it keeps the insides of the lips from feeling too thick with product.
Once you're prepped, add your lipstick! Finish any remaining makeup and you're ready to get out there and slayyy bitch!
