Ab’s Secrets- The Perfect Pout

Pucker Up ladies!

So for years, every woman has known that all you need to spice up any look is a good ol’ application of lipstick… BUT that’s not all.

There are all types of tricks and secrets that go way back but most people only know the basics..so I am here to give you the 411 on all things pouty.

With these tricks you can turn your drab, thin lips into fab “bee-stung” kissers. Watch below!

To accomplish this look I used {tiny tip: click the product name to see where I got the product}:

At-home Lip scrub and exfoliator: This is one of those things that you can kind of make up on your own and it doesn’t need to be these exact measurements, as long as it gets the job done. But for a general guideline, I use:

                                                                        ↠ Roughly 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil
                                                                        ↠  2 tablespoons of sugar (the grainer the better)
                                                                        ↠ 1 teaspoon of honey

This concoction is not only basically free, but it also tastes yummy too!

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer (Shade: NW 20): This stuff is the bomb. It covers all things under the sun. It only takes one pump to get the job done too. To see more things I have done with this concealer, click here and here.

MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil (Shade: Staunchly Stylish): This is a great color that is not overly dark, but has just enough of a deep hugh to create depth with the lips.

MAC Lipstick (Shade: Angel): To quote one of my favorite movies [Crazy, Stupid Love Obvi], this shade is “the perfect combination of sexy and cute.” It gives off the look of a candy pink lip while not being too cartoony.

L’Oreal 112 Lipstick (Shade: Unending Kiss): This is a lipstick that I always have with me, it’s a little brighter than the MAC one, so when I apply it I usually just do a quick coat with Chapstick to keep it more low-key.

MAC Pro Longwear Blush (Shade: Rosy Outlook): It has taken me a long time to find a color of blush that works perfectly for both a pink pout and a slight rosy cheek, but this right here is my jam. I had to kiss a lot of frogs to find this everyday wear color. The powder of the blush locks in the liquid of the lipstick therefore your lip look will stay on longer.

Elf Studio Lip Balm SPF 15 (Shade: Nude)This stuff is the absolute balm bomb and wait for it….it’s only $3.00. Dear diary, jackpot. Another plus is that it has SPF 15 in it which will keep you’re beautiful pucker beautiful for that much longer in life. Buy this stuff.

MAC Cream Color Base (Shade: Luna Frost): This is a great hilighter for your cheeks, brow bone and down the center of your nose, but it is also great to create the image of having fuller lips. You always want to have lighter colors in the middle with darker colors on the outside for this effect.

If you are trying to create the same look but with reds, you will want to take the same steps, but just switch up your color palette. I highly suggest that you use more ‘blue-hued’ reds rather than ‘orange-hued’ reds. I attached a picture below that I found on Pinterest to give you a sense the color scheme you should use.
