The Sephora Glossy mouths off on the top tips for perfect date-night lips.
You’ve found the perfect outfit, the perfect scent, and the perfect man—er, manicure, so now slick on a romantic lip color to complete your Valentine’s Day ensemble. Try these three simple steps for stay-put color that lasts from drinks to dinner and beyond. RENEE TRILIVAS
PREP & PRIME:
Smooth on a lip scrub to buff away dry, flaky skin, then condition lips with a moisturizing balm.
TIP: For ultimate staying power, pat on a small bead of primer to lock pigment in place.
SKETCH & SWIPE:
Starting at the cupid’s bow, outline lips with a matching liner and blend inward with a lip brush, filling in the entire mouth. Next, swipe on lip color beginning at the center of the lips.
TIP: Use a universal clear lip liner for subtle definition that works with all shades.
SET & SEAL:
Blot, then set lipstick by pressing a translucent powder over lips with a shadow brush before layering on a second coat of color.
TIP: Trace the outer edges of your lips with a highlighting concealer and blend to perfect the lip line and prevent bleeding.
Couple lasting lips with fluttery lashes to amp up the look in the wink of an eye. Try swiping on volumizing mascara or go all-out with a set of false lashes. Lip up, and lash out—happy Valentine’s Day!
