I don't know about you, but I have to apply several products in order to achieve the perfect pout. The first and most important component to my lip regimen is lip balm.
I use balm, butter, jelly or whatever it may be called as a base to get my kisser nice and moist. With so many flavors, textures, tubes and jars, it's easy to find one that's right for you. No matter what your product preference, this process is crucial to applying liners, lipsticks and glosses easily and smoothly.
For me, skipping this simple step is a no-no. If for some reason I forget to apply my lip treatment first, it screws up the whole look and feel of my lips. Maybe it's just me, but I'm obsessed with getting my pucker just right!
