Tis the season for a Christmas party or two!
The festive period is well and truly upon us and that means Christmas parties galore. Here at Bardou HQ, we know how much you love a party and we want to make sure you’re party ready all throughout winter.
When applying makeup, we all know that a flawless base is the best place to start. This is especially true for your lips which can sometimes suffer the most in winter thanks to the cold weather and, ahem, all that smooching under the mistletoe! We can’t stress enough how important it is to prep your lips before applying lipstick to avoid that unforgivable flakiness and the dreaded colour smudge. So to help you out this party season, here are our recommendations for getting smooth, kissable, party-ready lips.
First things first, invest in a good lip balm that will moisturise and soothe sore lips.
Keep it on hand and on your body at all times during these cold winter months and whatever you do, don’t share!
Secondly, buff those lips!
If you have a Clarisonic, use that to remove any dead skin or simply use the head of your toothbrush! Alternatively, create your own sugar scrub by simply mixing a tablespoon of brown sugar with honey, getting it to stick together. Rub the scrub onto your lips with just enough pressure to remove the dead skin. Leave for a minute then wipe off with a damp cloth. These methods of buffing not only get rid of any dead skin but also increase blood flow to naturally boost your lips!
Remember, be gentle – over exfoliating can make your lips irritated and lead to more chapping.
Next, use our BARDOU Booster Lip.
Enriched with beneficial nutrients such as honey and Hyaluronic spheres containing Sodium Hyaluronate which can hold up to 1000 x its weight in water, our Booster Lip acts as a super moisturising and hydrating product. Simply apply the Booster Lip directly to your lips with our easy-to-use brush tip.
Wait 5 minutes before applying lipstick and remove any excess product.
Finally, apply your lipstick or tint and you’re good to go!
There you have it – a perfect pout fit for the festive season.
