For A Pout That Glistens

There is nothing compared to a sparkling and shining smile under the hood of a well etched pair of lips. Lips being one contour of the face that attract maximum attention need utmost care to make them gleam all day long. Besides keeping them hydrated all the time, it is essential to apply the right lip colour that has moisturiser and is not too harsh.
Since lips are quite sensitive it is mandatory to scrub them gently using a mixture of sugar crystals and honey. Rub the mixture over the lips in a circular motion for about 2 minutes and then gently rinse with cold water. The effect will be quite striking as this gives immense shine to lips in no time. Smoking is known to darken the lips hence it is important to reduce or quit the habit if the lips tend to be acquiring a darker shade than usual. Rubbing milk cream mixed with rose petals can also help in lightening the lip colour and keep them blossoming all the time.

Another factor that can enhance the natural shape and colour of lips is using the right amount of lipstick and applying it the correct way. The lip colour should be chosen keeping in mind the colour of the skin, for example women with a fair skin tone can opt for pastel shades such as peach, pink and coral and those with a dusky complexion can highlight their skin by applying richer tones of wine and red.

Also it is best to opt for darker tones for a night out whereas daytime events are best complemented with soft shades that are not harsh to the eye. Before applying a lip colour, trace the edges of the lips with a light toned lip liner that will define the pout and lend a neat shape.
