Do you need a few lipstick tips for natural lip looks?

• No one wants a chapped pucker, so start by prepping your lips with a gentle scrub—a tiny bit of sugar mixed with olive oil will do the trick. The exfoliation removes dead skin cells so lips are ready for color.

• Moisture is a must! Keep a luxe balm by your bedside so you dont forget to hydrate. Remember, lips age too. To prevent fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth, use lip products with SPF.

• Hate reapplying all the time? Try a lip stain. They temporarily tint lips, making them kissably safe, but they dont add shine or dimension. Quick fix: Add gloss. How about feathering? Line your lips with a lip liner that closely matches the shade of your lipstick.
