We’re getting ready to kiss goodbye to 2010 and we’re excited to see all of the exciting chapters that unfold in 2011 for The Wedding Yentas, the beautiful brides who come to enjoy the articles, and all of the talented and professional vendors who visit our little site that could. So, it’s only fitting that our final Friday Favorites of the year is a New Year’s Eve themed gush about making sure your kisser is in tip-top shape for puckering up at midnight!
Not only is your New Year’s kiss important in order to start the year off on the right foot, er, lip, but it’s good practice for your smooch under the chuppah on your wedding day. It’s never too early to rehearse! So make sure you treat your lips with care so that you and your lucky kissing partner will enjoy a fabulous and romantic moment.
Today, we are excited to gush over a product that you should all run out and try. We always recommend practicing with some makeup before your wedding weekend, and coming straight from one of L.A.’s most popular makeup artists, this is one lip product you should include in your makeup collection. Susie Chhuor of Susie Chuuor Professional Hair and Makeup Team offers tips to care for your lips and also her favorite must-have.
Susie, herself, says that MAC Lustreglass is a great product because it’s inexpensive, not too sticky on the lips (no one wants to kiss sticky lips!), and has a great sheer color with light sparkles that work for everyone’s skin tone. It’s not too hard to maintain (like red lipstick or lipstick in general) and, even better, it’s a great moisturizer for your lips. Susie recommends MAC’s color called Love Nectar because the color looks great on all faces and is the perfect bridal hue.
In the time leading up to your wedding, Susie recommends taking care of your puckers just like you’d take care of other parts of your body so that you glow on the big day.
Tips for getting rid of dead skin on lips: Apply Vaseline for about 10 minutes and then use a toothbrush to rub off the excess skin. This will give you smoother lips and easy application for glosses and lipsticks.
And this pretty little gloss can be yours! We’re giving away one tube of MAC Lustreglass in Love Nectar that you can win simply by entering and leaving a comment below.
