First, let's talk about why we need lip scrub in the first place. Though it's weirdly satisfying to exfoliate your pout (no idea why) there's actually a practical reason for it. Exfoliating your lips helps get rid of dead, flaky skin, which means that anything that goes on your lips will adhere much better and go on more evenly. It's ideal to scrub your lips before putting on anything highly pigmented, as the color will spread better on a smooth surface. Though there are plenty of bonuses to using a lip scrub, you don't need to go out and purchase one. Huffington Post Live makeup artist Kari Bauce told the website that you only need three things to make a great DIY scrub, and that's a tablespoon Aquaphor healing ointment, a pinch of white granulated sugar and a Q-Tip. Simply blend the Aquaphor with the sugar, put a generous amount on a Q-Tip, and let sit on your lips for three to four minutes. Wipe off with a warm, damp washcloth, and poof: insta-smooth lips!
Now go forth and try all of the liquid lipsticks you can get your hands on: with your new silky smooth lips, anything and everything will look fab on you.
