To flaunt hydrated, supple and baby-soft lips, simply applying a lip balm isn’t going to enough. Similar to your face, your lips also tend to accumulate dead and dry skin, which increases flakiness. To avoid this, gently exfoliate your lips before putting on lip makeup. This is a great way to ensure your lips look a lot fuller and healthier.

Lip balm is an essential lip product that you definitely should never be caught without. After exfoliating your lips, apply a lip balm generously all over your lips. This will prevent your lips from drying out from wearing lipstick for long hours.

The next step after lip liner is a lipstick. But since you will be wearing a mask most of the time, you don’t want your lipstick to be wiped away or stain your mask, right?

While wearing only lip gloss may not quite be possible this year, it is still an essential lip product. If you’ve got thin lips and want to make them appear instantly plump, apply a tiny bit of a clear lip gloss right in the centre of your lips and blend it outwards. This will make your lips appear plump, minus the mess *yay*.
