GIRLY MONDAYS by jasmine schoch
There will probably never come another day when there will be so much attention put on your lips as on your wedding day, so read these tips to make those lips look luscious and kissable:
1. Use Lip Primers
The key to great lips, as with soft skin, is exfoliation -- the sloughing off of dead surface skin. To combat chapping and flakes, exfoliate your mouth every day leading up to your wedding, but skip the morning of to avoid any unnecessary irritation (if you follow this regime, you won't need to anyway).
Try a lip-polishing product, or use this even simpler exfoliation option: just grab your toothbrush. Brushing your lips with a wet brush will help remove dead skin.
2. Apply Moisturizers
After you've primed your lips, treat them right with frequent applications of moisturizer.
3. Finish with Color
When it come to the lipstick itself, you'll want to find a non-drying color that stays put without fading or feathering, plus a dewy shine that looks natural.
