Exfoliate With A Naturally Delicious Lip Scrub
Using an all-natural lip scrub will brush away dry skin, leaving your mouth smooth and keeping any makeup you apply stay put from day to night. You can't expect a great end result without putting in a little necessary preparation first — so simply rub this Lush mint julep scrub on your lips and lick off the excess. It tastes just like candy, making it deliciously easy to keep your lips soft and healthy!
Prep Your Pout With A Plumping Primer
Kill two birds with one stone by snagging a primer that packs a serious punch. Apply this hydrating primer to clean, dry lips, and it will have your lipstick staying on all day long. It will simultaneously plump them up, giving you that Kylie-esque pillowy look almost instantly.
Apply Smooth Foundation For Extra Lipstick Adhesive
After using a primer on your pout, apply this layer of silky foundation to your lips to create a smooth canvas for your lip color of choice. This foundation is the perfect pick — it protects with SPF 20 and is oil-free, paraben-free, and fragrance-free. It's safe for both your skin and your lips!
Overline Your Lips With An Easy Glide-On Pencil
One user raved about this MAC Lip Pencil, saying it always glides right on "without breaking or drying out." The Lip Kit Queen would definitely approve of this product, as she's publicly said she is a huge proponent of over-lining her lips. To achieve a dramatic pout, like the one Jenner can be spotted with on the red carpet, choose a color slightly darker than your natural shade, and overdraw your lip shape before filling in the rest.
Be Bold With A Rich Pop Of Color
This vampy lip liner is infused with vitamins to keep your kissers moisturized while giving you a rich pop of color. Jenner is often seen rocking a similar dark, bold hue to draw extra attention to her lips. Bonus: This e.l.f. color stick will give you the semi-matte look that is perfect for your next night out.
Create The Illusion Of Fuller Lips WIth A Shimmery Highlighter
This illuminating highlighter stick is waterproof and blends easily, which is vital for not smudging your freshly applied lipstick. Using your finger, apply the gold-toned highlighter to the center of your top and bottom lip before rubbing them together to blend. This creates the illusion of fuller lips by adding an eye-catching shimmer to the middle of your mouth.
Create More Natural Lines With A Compact Concealer Brush
Users praise this brush for how well it cleans up the lip area without being too big or too stiff of a brush. For more natural looking lines, just take a few extra seconds before you finish up your look and glide this tiny concealer brush around the outside edges of your kissers. Voila! You've achieved pouty-lip perfection.
Prevent Smudging With A Translucent Powder
Kylie Jenner lives a busy lifestyle— and so do you. Leave no room for possible smudges throughout the day by lightly brushing an ultra-fine setting powder over your lips. This one is your best bet because it won't clump up and it's completely translucent so it won't show over your bold color. Pro Tip: hold a thin tissue over your lips and brush the powder over the tissue to be sure the brush won't interfere with your fierce new look when applying the finishing touch!
