Get kissable lips

It’s time to concentrate on your kisser -- by which we mean getting it ready for your next marathon makeout session. If your lips leave a little something to be desired, follow our steps for achieving a perfect pout.

Get kissable lips

1Fresh Brown Sugar Lip PolishExfoliate.

Lips get dry, especially in the winter. If you've been neglecting your luscious lips for too long, give them a gentle scrub to eliminate dead skin cells and reveal smooth new skin. Try Fresh Brown Sugar Lip Polish ($22.50), which leaves lips smooth and kissable after every application.

2Caudalie Lip ConditionerMoisturize.

Once lips are exfoliated, they need moisture. Find a product that you love and carry it around with you so you can hydrate on the go. Some good choices include Caudalie Lip Conditioner ($12), which soothes dry lips while providing anti-aging benefits, and Shiseido Sun Protection Lip Treatment ($20), which softens while providing SPF 30 sun protection.


DuWop Lip Venom

If your pout could use some volume, there's no shame in giving it some extra oomph. Some well known lip-plumping products include Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme ($28) and DuWop Lip Venom ($16), both of which volumize your pout while giving it a glossy sheen.

4Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color BalmColor.

There are many options for color, including lipstick, lip stains, lip glosses and lip pencils. Choose what feels right for you. If you don't like a lot of color, opt for a stain or gloss. If you really want to show off your lips, choose a lipstick with staying power. Right now we're loving Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm ($15), which offers sheer color in a variety of pretty hues.
