Exfoliate your lips 2-3 times a week
For those wearing lipstick daily, even though you remove it with makeup removers and cleansers, there might still be some small traces of lipstick left, which is one of the causes of dry, chapped, flaky, and dark lips. Exfoliating your lips regularly – about 2-3 times a week – helps to remove dry and dead skin. It lightens your lips as well as restores softness, smoothness, and healthy appearance. Furthermore, your lips will stay hydrated all day without any flaking or peeling. If you are one of the girls who love wearing matt lipstick, this tip is highly useful for you.

Always apply lip balm to your lips before wearing lipstick
If you tend to wear lipstick on a daily basis, you should always apply lip balm to your lips before the lipstick. It is particularly helpful in keeping your lips moisturized and restoring softness to dry, chapped, and flaky lips. Using a lip balm that contains ingredients with high moisturizing effects such as glycerin, or with a high amount of antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E, will effectively heal dry and cracked lips. Moreover, using lip balms with SPF will also help to prevent your lips from turning darker because of the sun.

Choose the right lipstick shade that suits your skin tone
Choosing a lipstick shade that suits your skin tone is another way to complement your charming features and feel more confident in yourself, as well as to attract the attention of the people around you.
Girls with fair skin and cool undertones: Look great in any lipstick shade, especially milky pink tones. Lipsticks with a shiny, glossy finish also make your lips appear fuller and healthier with a touch of pink.
Girls with fair skin and warm undertones: Suitable for warm lipstick tones such as orange-based or brownish pink, which help brighten your lips and are perfect for an everyday look.
Girls with neutral skin tones: Can wear any shade of lipstick, but orange-red or bold red will be perfect for making your lips look outstanding and glamorous.
Girls with deep skin tones: Look amazing wearing nude, brown or purple-pink lipsticks that are not too deep in color. These shades complement your skin tone to look more radiant and bring attention to your beautiful lips.
