We are here to share how to pull off the hottest looks of the season.
Lip care tips to ensure smooth, soft lips and makeup that looks fresh all day long
- Exfoliate the lips with a DIY sugar scrub. This will slough off dead skin and help prevent flaking. Smooth lips are key for matte lipstick and lip stain application and berries and purples can be unforgiving if you have dry lips. Think of it like this -- picture a house with paint that has chipped and peeled. If you hired a painter, would he just take out the paint and roll right over the shingles? No. The paint would not go on evenly and it would be bumpy and peel even more. The painter would scrape away the old paint, smooth the wood, make sure it is cleaned properly and prepped for painting. The canvas needs to be smooth for the paint to adhere and look its best. The same goes for your lips. If your lips are chapped or flaky and you apply lipstick, every imperfection show. The color will not properly adhere and your lips will not look good. You need to prepare the lip surface first.
- Moist lips are key! Nourish with Seed Lip Oil lip for soft, healthy lips. The natural, plant-based oils are just what your lips are craving. Lip oil can be applied any time, but if you are having trouble with achieving a bold fall lip, try applying oil in the morning when you are doing your other skin care.
- At night, extra TLC is just what you need. Our Seed Soft Balm is the ultimate in pampering for dryness - you can use on its own or over Lip Oil. I almost think of it the way I do my other skin care -- serum and then my heavier moisturizer at night on my face. I apply lip oil, then my Soft Balm to seal it all in for lasting, impactful hydration.
- To ensure a flawless, bleed-proof look, clean up the edges of the lip with concealer. Make sure the concealer matches your skin or it will draw attention to the area rather than camouflaging any mistakes. You can also try a flesh toned lip liner to seal in color.

We've all heard about the "Freshman 15." I gained about 7 pounds freshman year.
