DIY Lip Scrub
Choosing the right lipstick for your wedding day is one of the most important decisions when it comes to your wedding day make up. What’s just as important though is making sure that you have a good foundation for your make up to be applied to, and that includes your lips too.
One of the best ways to make sure your lips are wedding ready is by using a lip scrub. This will act as an exfoliator, removing any dead skin and making sure they are perfectly primed for any lip product to be applied.
Make your own
If you wanted to purchase something then check out Lush Cosmetics They do a beautiful smelling, flavoured lip scrub that I personally have in my own make up bag. If you wanted to try something different then this easy recipe below is a quick and cost-effective way to make your very own sugar lip scrub with natural ingredients that you have at home.
Honey Sugar Lip scrub
- Mix one teaspoon of honey with two teaspoons of sugar in a small bowl
- Massage the mixture into your lips and leave for 10 minutes or so
You can find a few variations to this recipe with a quick google so if you wanted to substitute any of the ingredients you’ll be able to find something that will suit you quite easily. Some add vanilla extract, others even add pigment using food coloring.
I’d recommend using something like this on a weekly basis in the run-up to your wedding day so your lips can get into the best possible condition. Keep your lips well moisturized too by using a lip balm, especially at night, and you’ll soon start to see ( and feel ) a noticeable improvement!
Hope this helps!
