How many of you know this problem – dry and rough lips in winter? In this blog I am sharing my lip routine and I hope you will find it inspirational.
I am a huge fan of layers. Even when applying a lip gloss I would go for the moisturizing lip cream first. One layer is just not enough LOL. I love the feeling of pampered and smooth lips and I believe that nothing can beat a good basic lip care. This winter I am happy to find a perfect combination to help overcoming dry lip look. MAC and NARS are my favorite lipsticks in terms of colors and quality and they last long. But still they have given my lips dry appearance sometimes – especially in colder days and after a long winter period. So setting a good base is a must!
The first and most important step in my daily lip routine is moisturize and soften the lips by giving them the ingredients they need to stay healthy. I personally love this WONDERLIPS roller. It has many natural ingredients that boost cell structure and keep your lips young and healthy. The roller also includes collagen which moisturizes the skin. This step is really important as you will achieve much better lip feeling than just applying the lipstick directly on dry lips. Try it out – you will love it! And it gives you an additional full volume effect. Who wouldn´t want that?
Secondly, I use a lip liner to outline my lips, unless I am using the lip gloss. I do admit, I am more of a gloss person, so I often forget about the lipliner. If however you want to boost the color a bit, get a thicker lip line – it can do a miracle.
Next, I use a lipstick – lately I have become very cautious about the lipsticks I am using. If you like bio and all natural products, you will love this one. I am a huge fan of nude colors for everyday use, so I picked up a nude one, but you will find others here.
