Jessica Alba sported glam red lips at the Chanel couture show a the Grand Palais in Paris. Wearing red lipstick isn't easy, but it's made even harder if you don't have a perfectly smooth pucker.
There are a few things you can do to get your lips ready for your perfect shade of red. Here are some tips:
Pick a good lip balm. Concentrate on key ingredients like beeswax, shea butter or cocoa butter. Old standbys like Burt's Bees and Carmex do the trick or try Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 and cult fave Rosebud Salve.
Exfoliate your lips. Just like the rest of your bod, your lips need a good scrub now and again. Pick up philosophy's kiss me lip scrub or concoct your own at home with some brown sugar and a few drops of honey. Rub in after a shower for a silky pout.
Use SPF. Yes, even your lips can be hurt by too much sun exposure. Incorporate lip protection into your routine by picking balms and lipsticks with SPF. YSL's Rouge Volupte has SPF 15 while Neutrogena's MoistureShine lipstick has SPF 20.
Congrats, you're on your way to a perfectly kissable pout!
