Lipstick may seem like a simple beauty product – swipe, swipe, and you’re done! But there are so many little mistakes you can make, resulting in everything from dry, flakey lips to lipstick-stained teeth. The good news is that knowing the mistakes is the first step in learning the proper technique to fix them!
Mistake #1: You’re Not Exfoliating
This is a mistake that so many people make and it has a significant impact on how the lipstick goes on and it’s staying power. Exfoliating your lips before applying lipstick removes dry flakey skin and reduces the chance of lipstick settling into any fine lines. It’ll also help hydrate the lips, ensuring lipstick lasts as long as possible without needing to reapply.
Luckily, you don’t need a high-end product to exfoliate your lips! Try one of our favorite affordable lip exfoliators, Kopari Coconut Lip Scrubby, to help you get perfect-pout ready.
