Exfoliating lips with a toothbrush

1. Exfoliate your lips

The first step is to exfoliate your lips. This will help our lips look plumper, fresher, and smoother.  

There are a few ways to exfoliate your lips, and most of these ways are really inexpensive. The first way is to use your toothbrush! Take your brush and gently roll it around in small circles all over your lips. This is so easy to do and something you can do 2-3 times a week. 

Exfoliating lips with a lip scrub

Another way to exfoliate your lips is with a lip scrub. You can find some super affordable ones from the drugstore. Take a little bit of the scrub, put it on your finger, and roll it around. 

How to line lips

2. Apply lip liner

Lining your lips is a real game-changer, especially for mature women.

For most of us (including me), the fold on either corner of my lips is not as taut as it used to be. So addressing this with a lip liner can make a world of difference.

There are a few other principles I follow when lining my lips:

  • Don't take the lip liner all the way down to the corners of your lips. Stop before you get to that corner, so you don’t have a soppy smudge of color by the end of the day. 
  • Overline the lips towards the center; make it a little higher around your vermilion line to give it a fuller dimension.

You can either follow the line or go a little higher when you get to the cupid’s bow.

4. Apply lip gloss

Top off your lipstick with a bit of shiny lip gloss for the final step. Apply it right in the center of both lips for that lovely, plumper look.
