2. Moisturize

After your lips are exfoliated, the next step is to hydrate them. This is easy to do with your favorite lip balm. I always sleep with lip balm on to leave my lips feeling soft, kissable, and ready for lipstick! As good as it feels to have lip balm on, make sure you don’t have any on when you begin to apply your lipstick because this can cause it to slide and feather.
