Tired of the dry winter air sucking the life out of your lips every New Year's Eve? We get it. That's why we've gathered together a few simple tips and tricks to get the softest, kissable lips on New Year's.
Now, get out there and have some fun!
Hydrate With Fluids
Hydration is probably the best thing you can do to prepare your lips for your midnight kiss on NYE. Drink at least 9 cups of fluids per day. And we know you'll be busy having fun on New Year's Eve, but when your lips start feeling dry, don't lick them! Your saliva can be damaging to the protective barrier of your lips, resulting in dryer lips. Just drink some water throughout the evening instead. You'll thank yourself for doing so later.
Use Your Favorite Lip Balm
Whether you're planning on wearing some lipstick or going au naturale, you need to remember to apply some lip balm before stepping out the door. Lip balm,s prevent moisture loss by sealing in moisture with an occlusive layer on the lips. We love simple lip balms like Burt's Bees or even Rosebud
Before applying lipstick or even lip balm, you can always exfoliate your lips to reveal a smoother, silkier pout. by getting rid of the dead skin cells sitting on top of your lips. Just remember to be gentle, don't over-exfoliate, and moisturize immediately after. We love this Fresh lip scrub, but you can always make DIY lip scrubs at home if you don't have the time for a quick Sephora trip.
Use a Lip Mask
If you want a quick fix for smoother and healthier looking lips on New Year's Eve, then you might want to consider getting a lip mask. We love this Laneige sleeping lip mask, which you apply the night before your event, to unveil insanely smooth lips that are perfectly prepped for any New Year's Eve look.
Don't Forget the Lip Liner and Tissues
If you’re wearing lipstick, don’t forget the lipliner and to blot your lips before stepping out the door. Here are a few steps you can take to get a strong lip that lasts until 2019:
- Line your lips with lip liner (that matches your lipstick)
- Fill in your lips with lip liner
- Apply a layer of your lipstick
- Blot with a tissue and a bit of translucent powder
- Apply another layer of lipstick
