Before you put your lipstick, you need to prepare your lips for it. First you need to exfoliate them. You can do this by using a baby toothbrush. If you want to make everything perfect, then it’s a very good idea to prepare your own homemade lip scrub. It’s easy to make; all you need is some sugar and coconut oil. If you don’t have the time to prepare it, there’s another option. It’s not as effective as your homemade scrub, but it still works. Just cover your lips with some lip balm or petroleum jelly of your choice.
