Taylor Swift’s new CoverGirl ad for Natureluxe was released last week and we can’t get enough of her bright red lip in the commercial. Bold lips are a huge trend but it’s still pretty intimidating to wear a red lipstick (particularly for blonds with fair skin) so we’re excited to see her rock it in style.
Taylor’s wearing the new CoverGirl Lip Perfection lipstick, which promises to make your lips healthier and happier if you wear it regularly (supposedly within seven days). We haven’t gotten our hands on any yet to confirm their claim, but here are a few tips to get your lips ready.
1. Exfoliate! Use a gentle exfoliator to get rid of any dry, flaky skin on your lips. C.O. Bigelow’s Mentha Lip Buffer isn’t too messy and the sugar crystals taste delish.
2. Moisturize. Prep your pout with a conditioning balm or lip primer. I like Napoleon Perdis’ Auto Pilot Lip Service because it glides on like a gloss but feels moisturizing, not sticky.
