My Routine For Perfect Lips

In honor of National Kissing Day I wanted to share my fool-proof routine for plump, beautiful lips. People often focus on an amazing skincare routine for their face but neglect their lips. Chapped lips is definitely a pet peeve of mine and should be something of the past. Follow these easy steps for radiant lips and thank me later!

Step 1: Use an overnight lip treatment

I love the Motives® MUAH Vanilla Lip Mask because it seals in moisture for a perfect pout. It has a subtle taste of vanilla and creates a smooth canvas for applying makeup the next morning. If you don’t have the time for the treatment to fully work its magic overnight, apply it for 10-15 minutes before makeup for similar results. 


Step 2: Add Vitamin E

You should have the Motives® Vitamin E Lip Treatment in your makeup bag or purse at all times! I like to apply the product first, before applying the rest of my makeup, so all the vitamins can penetrate my lips before adding lip color. Think of this product as a nourishing chapstick with added benefits.


Step 3: Apply a long-wearing lip color 

Now that your lips are prepped and plump it’s time to apply a long-wearing lip color! Motives Cosmetics has tons of colors and formulas to choose from. My current favorite is our new THALIA X Motives® Liquid Lipstick! Kiss-proof, this velvety formula glides on weightlessly for a matte finish that hangs tight, morning to night.
