While you probably have an exfoliation routine down for our face, you might not be so up to speed when it comes to your lips. Chapped lips are caused by a whole number of things, and if you are prone to dryness the first step is to exfoliate all those dead skin cells. To make your pout ready for action, use a lip scrub to leave them silky smooth and plump.

Before you even think about applying any sort of lipstick, you’ll want to ensure your lips are moisturised. To get your lips in tip-top condition try one of these lip balms.
Go the extra mile and use a lip mask the night before, such as Clinique Pep Start Pout Restoring Night Mask, $42.
On the night, your best bet is to go for a tinted balm or lip stain. While a bold, bright lipstick is amazing for special occasions, if kissing is on the agenda your partner may appreciate a more workable formula that is guarenteed to stay put all night long – after all you don't want to be looking like Pennywise from It!
While you could stop there, if you really want your pout to stand out, use a touch of highlighter on your cupids bow and centre of your lips to add dimension and fullness. We can’t promise it will stay around for long though!
